You really have to wonder if these sort of things even still rile Beyonce up anymore. Nonetheless, Blue Ivy’s mama enters this year’s MTV Video Music Awards as the top dog with eight nominations including “Video of the Year” and “Best Collaboration” for “Drunk In Love” and “Best Choreography” for “Partition.”

Other notable names include Eminem and Iggy Azalea with seven noms while Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande and Sia received three apiece. Beyonce (“Drunk in Love”) will square off against Pharrell (“Happy”), Azalea (“Fancy”), Sia’s “Chandelier” and Miley Cyrus (“Wrecking Ball”) in the “Video of the Year” category.

All I know is if Lil Jon doesn’t win best “clubland” track for “Turn Down For What” then this entire evening is for naught. And the Beyhive may riot if/when Iggy beats Sasha Fierce in any of categories the two share together.
