MTV VMA diva smackdown: Katy Perry vs. Lady Gaga

July 22, 2011 |  2:12 pm

Lady Gaga Katy Perry MTV VMA news

There is only one MTV Video Music Awards category in which the pop diva who dominates this year's competition with nine nominations (Katy Perry) squares off against the one who swept the kudofest last year with eight wins (Lady Gaga): best female video.

Never mind the speculation over why Lady Gaga isn't nominated opposite Perry in the other races (87% of respondents to our poll believe there's an MTV conspiracy against her). Let's focus on just this contest, in which Lady Gaga is nominated for "Born This Way" and Perry is up for "Firework."

Who'll win? Or do you think there's any chance that the other nominees might pull off a victory and squash the dueling divas -- Adele ("Rolling in the Deep"), Beyonce ("Run the World (Girls)") and Nicki Minaj ("Super Bass")?
