Pop sensation Lady Gaga has made her way into award-show history after receiving 13 MTV Video Music Awards nominations.
That is the most nominations received by any artist in a single year, reported People online.
The Grammy-winning singer, 24, said that she was touched by the honour and credited her fans, whom she calls little monsters, for it.
"I'm so honoured for all the little monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA nominations in a single year than any artist in MTV history.
Ironically, I'm even more proud it's an unlucky number 13," said the Telephone hitmaker.
"A long time ago the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules. God put me on Earth for three reasons: To make loud music, gay videos and cause a damn ruckus. Thank you, MTV," she added.
Among the lucky 13 nominations are best pop video, best dance music video, best female video, best choreography and best collaboration for Telephone featuring Beyonce.
