Lady Gaga sweeps MTV awards

Lady Gaga sweeps MTV awards

The flamboyant pop singer tied Norwegian rock group a-ha, the big winners of 1986, as the second most honoured act on a single night. British rocker Peter Gabriel set the record of nine competitive wins in 1987 for his innovative video Sledgehammer.

Most of Lady Gaga’s Moonman statuettes were for her video Bad Romance, a futuristic clip featuring plenty of skin-baring scenes and bizarre costumes.

“I was so nervous for tonight that I would let my fans down,” she tearfully said as she accepted the final award for video of the year. The 24-year-old New Yorker, as famous for her outre fashion sense as for her musical sensibilities, led the field with 13 nominations.
