MTV.com: It ainâ€™t easy being a VMA nominee, especially when youâ€™re up against your brotherâ€™s favorite artist of all time and also up against one of your good friends. In this case, weâ€™re talking about Iggy Azalea.
The â€œFancyâ€ rapper is tied with Eminem for seven nominations at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards and she and Ariana Grande will also battle it out in a couple of categories, including Best Female Video and Best Pop Video.
â€œI never thought that I would be facing off with Eminem for most award nominations, but itâ€™s pretty cool because Eminem is my young brotherâ€™s absolute favorite artist in the world, so I think he feels very conflicted as to who to vote for â€” his own flesh and blood, or his favorite artist,â€ Iggy told MTV News, being sympathetic and adding, â€œHeâ€™s in a tough position.â€
As for Ariana, well, may the best woman take home those Moonmen. â€œI hope you win Ariana but I hope I win more â€” you understand,â€ Iggy said laughing. Watch Iggy dish on her competition in the video HERE.
