I think we're at our best by the flicker by the light of the TV set.

GaGa Breaks Records, Eats MTV's Heart

Mama Monster is on a frickin' role!

Two weeks ago she took a bite out of the digital music world. GaGa hit the 25 million mark in digital downloads from The Fame Monster. No, that's not a typo. I did say 25 million. The tracks from her revamped version of The Fame have been downloaded by little monsters worldwide over 25 million times.

No other album in digital downloading history has had such an impact on sales.

Lady Gaga

That's not all. More recently, GaGa shattered MTV's Video Music Award's. The star was nominated a historical 13 times! That's more than any artist in a year has ever been nominated. GaGa has a nomination in nearly every single category for her artistically bizarre "Bad Romance". The vid is up for Video of the Year; Best Pop Video; Best Female Video; Best Dance Music Video; Best Art Direction; Best Cinematography; Best Direction; Best Choreography; Best Editing and Best Special Effects. WTF?! I told you! It's nominated for everything!

Her infamous collaborations (and getaway rides in the Pussy Wagon) with BeyoncĂ© also got noms. "Video Phone" is up for Best Collaboration and Best Choreography. "Telephone" is up for Best Choreography and Video of the Year. GaGa will compete against herself in that category. You know she'll win it. How could she not? I'd like to see Kanye pick a fight with her and insist she isn't worthy. She'd have an Alexander McQueen 10-inch stiletto up his ass so fast he wouldn't know what hit him.

Tune in to the GaGa show Sunday, September 12 @ 9pm on MTV.
