Grammy Ball, Cardi B leads MTV Awards nominations
Ignored by major categories in recent Grammy Awards, current rapper Cardi B came top of the MTV Video Music Awards nominations on Monday, the other one reference ceremony of music in the United States.
The buxom young woman of the Bronx, aged 25, has won ten nominations, including major Artist of the Year and Best New Artist.
She was also selected in the category of Video of the Year, for "Finesse", in which she comes in support of neo-funk singer Bruno Mars.
The MTV VMAs will be held August 20 in New York, where they return after a stint in Los Angeles last year.
Still unknown a little more than a year ago, Belcalis Almanzar, of his real name, has, meanwhile, placed no less than six titles in the top 10 sales in the United States, including "Bodak Yellow", who revealed it, and in early July, "I Like It".
Her debut album, "Invasion of Privacy," also hit record sales in April.
All smiles at this former stripper, jovial, funny and spontaneous, who just gave birth on July 10, a girl, Kulture, born of her union with the rapper Offset, member of the trio Migos.
Cardi B has managed to beat the royal couple of pop, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, who have been named eight times for "Apeshit", their video event shot at the Louvre.
The title is part of the surprise album they released June 16, attributed to "The Carters", their last name, and celebrating their couple marked in recent years by some tension.
The singers and rappers Childish Gambino and Drake have received seven nominations each, all concentrated, in the case of the first, on the video phenomenon "This is America", with multiple political messages.
Building on the rise of video clips, VMAs have become an institution that rivals the industry's most prestigious awards, including the Grammy Awards.
The ceremony is often more animated than its competitors, more in step with the times and constitutes fertile ground for controversy.
In 2013, the singer Miley Cyrus performed a more than suggestive choreography on the title "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke.
In 2009, rapper Kanye West interrupted the speech by Taylor Swift, who had just received the prize for best video by a female artist, stating that Beyoncé deserved more than this award.
A portion of the awards are awarded by a jury made up of professionals and the rest, notably in the "Best new artist" category, by the public.
