Katy Perry has had an impressive two nominations announced for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs). However, it seems that Perry’s song ‘Roar’ has been snubbed for a gong of its very own.

Perry released ‘Roar’ in August of 2013, and it quickly became a commercial success praised by fans. While some critics felt the track was wriggled with cliche there were others who lauded it, including MTV’s own James Montgomery whom described it as “one of the more perfect pop songs to come down the pipeline in quite a while”. Perry even promoted ‘Roar’ by performing it at the 2013 VMA’s, and yet still it didn’t get a nomination.

Shortly after the announcement the singer behind, Teenage Dream and Prism took to Twitter and roared that her track was and is still a fan favourite:

The 29 year-old has received two nominations in the categories of Best Female Video and Best Collaboration for her track ‘Dark Horse’ featuring Juicy J. This is in stark contrast to Beyonce, who steamrolled ahead with 8 nominations, and poor old Lady Gaga who didn’t even get one.
