Who’ll win battle of the videos?
NEW YORK: Beyoncé and Adele are nominees at the MTV Video Music Awards, where their music videos will compete against Kanye West’s controversial Famous for video of the year.
Famous, Beyoncé’s Formation and Adele’s Hello will battle Justin Bieber’s Sorry and Drake’s Hotline Bling for the top prize when the VMAs air live on August on 28 from Madison Square Garden.
The nominations announced this week.
West’s infamous Famous features what appears to be naked were images of the rapper and other celebrities, including Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, Donald Trump and Bill Cosby.
The song is at the centre of his spat with Swift.
Kardashian recently leaked audio of Swift giving West her blessing after he told her the lyric, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”
But Swift later said she was upset because West did not play her the entire track or tell her the full lyric regarding her, which included the line, “Why? I made that bitch famous.” – ANA-AP
