Kanye and Chris get VMA nod

NOMINATIONS: Kanye West and Chris Brown

RAPPER KANYE West and singer Chris Brown are celebrating after receiving a total 10 nominations between them at the upcoming VMA awards.

West leads the pack with an impressive seven nominations, while the She’s Not You singer, who will be going head to head with West in the 'Best male' and 'Best hip-hop' categories, managed three.

The 22-year-old, who was shunned by the industry following his 2009 assault on then girlfriend, Rihanna, thanked MTV for their support. He said: “I'm nominated for the 2011 VMA's!!! Thanks for the support MTV!!”

After performing at ABC’s Today Show last week, in what was said to be “the biggest crowd at the show in history”, the singer's career seems to be going from strength to strength.

Brown’s ex girlfriend, Rihanna didn’t receive any individual nomination, but the Bajan beauty’s collaboration with West on All of The Lights and Eminem’s Love the way you lie earned her two nods.

The VMAs will take place in Los Angeles on August 28.
