Woot! Here comes the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA). This year will see country sweetheart Taylor Swift and “good girl gone bad” Rihanna try to beat each other in a total of not one, not two, but three categories. They are, “Best Female”, “Best Pop”, and “Best Look”.

Of course, this doesn’t shadow the fact that Rihanna has a mad amount of nominations in total for this year’s EMAs? How mad? Oh, about six nominations in total. One of which is the coveted “Best Video” award, which includes other nominees such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and (cue to take a deep breath) wait for it..PSY!
