As expected, lady Gaga was the big winner of the MTV European Music Awards (EMA) in 2011, taking home four awards, MTV reports. The singer was awarded, among others, for her single “Born This Way”.
Earlier this year, pop queen Lady Gaga was ranked #1 highest paid musician in the world by Forbes. The music star earned a total of 4.5 billion dollars from May 2010 to May 2011. It was only natural that, as a reflection of the huge number of fans and of the quality of the performances, she would get a bunch of MTV European Music Awards. Yes, for Gaga there is no talking in single items, but rather in sums of awards.
Her single, “Born This Way” was awarded for both the song and the video. She also took won for Best Female (snatching the prize from Beyoncé, Adele, Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry) and for Biggest Fans. “Thank you so much, I love you so much. I’m so grateful”, said gaga while receiving the awards. The public was once again shocked by her inimitable appearance. She wore a silver dress and an over-sized hat that was covering her face. “I’m really smiling right now, but I know you can’t tell”, she added and then joked about having had Botox treatment recently.
Another winner of the night was Selena Gomez’s sweetheart, pop star Justin Bieber, who won in the categories Best Pop and Best Male. Bruno Mars took home the Best New Artist Award and MTV’s Best Push Award.
