Lady Gaga is leading the way at this year's MTV Video Music Awards with a record 13 nominations.

The kooky singer - who won three gongs for her 'Poker Face' and 'Paparazzi' videos at last year's ceremony - was also nominated for a further five awards for her 'Video Phone' collaboration with Beyonce Knowles.

The 'Bad Romance' hitmaker said: "Ironically, I'm even more proud it's an unlucky number; 13. A long time ago the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules."

Lady Gaga has received two nods for the coveted Video of the Year award, as well as nominations for Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Best Choreography, among others.

Reacting to her record-breaking list of nominations, she tweeted: "13 VMA noms lilmonsters. Breakin records+breakin rüles. I love you, you Bad Kids are a part of me. PAWS UP! #VideoMonsterAwards.(sic)"

Meanwhile fellow nominee Justin Bieber paid homage to Lady Gaga, writing on twitter: "thank you to @mtv im honored and congrats to all the nominees and to @ladygaga for her record breaking 13 noms. That's pretty pretty good. (sic)"

Chart-toppers Beyonce, Usher and Eminem are also up for a number of awards, while British band Florence and the Machine received four nominations for their 'Dog Days Are Over' video.
