This year's MTV Video Music Awards were held on Sunday. The flamboyant and bizarre pop-idol Lady Gaga was crowned queen by winning Video of the Year and another seven prizes!

Most of Lady Gaga's Moonman statuettes were for her video "Bad Romance," a futuristic clip featuring plenty of skin-baring scenes and bizarre costumes. The flamboyant pop singer, as famous for her wild fashion sense as for her musical sensibilities, led the field with 13 nominations.

In addition to winning video of the year for "Bad Romance," Lady Gaga also took home prizes for Female Video, Pop Video, Dance Video, choreography, direction, and editing. Plus, her video for "Telephone," featuring Beyonce, won for best collaboration.

The only other multiple winner was eight-time nominee Eminem, who won a pair of awards for his clip "Not Afraid." The rapper opened the show with a medley of tunes and a surprise duet with Rihanna, but hastily exited the Nokia Theatre before accepting his statuettes.

Taylor Swift, who received a single nomination, went home empty-handed, crushed by the Lady Gaga juggernaut. But the country-pop starlet provided one of the show's more provocative moments, debuting a song that recounted her on-stage controversy with Kanye West during last year's ceremony.

Teen sensation Justin Bieber got some love from his fans. He won the MTV Moonman for "Best New Artist." He also performed outside the Nokia Theatre for hundreds of screaming fans.

Rockers "30 Seconds to Mars" took home the prize for best rock album.

The MTV Video Music Awards, which are more about performances than statues, also featured acts from Drake, Usher and Linkin Park.
