The rapper picked up three nods on Tuesday morning (21Jul15) - but not in the categories she was expecting.

And she was stunned that her Feeling Myself promo didn't get a mention.

She tweeted, "MTV thank you for my nominations. Did Feeling Myself miss the deadline or…?"

Minaj then sat back and watched as fans took aim at MTV for not nominating her Anaconda promo for Video of the Year.

She later tweeted, "When the 'other' girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination".

Minaj added, "U couldn't go on social media w/o (without) seeing ppl (people) doing the Anaconda cover art, choreo (choreography), outfits for Halloween... an impact like that & no VOTY nomination?"

Taylor Swift leads the VMAs nominations with nine. Minaj picked up nods for Best Female Video and Best Hip-Hop Video (Anaconda) and Best Collaboration for her Bang Bang hit with Jessie J and Ariana Grande.

The awards ceremony will take place in Los Angeles next month (Aug15).
