Lady Gaga makes best and worst-dressed shortlists
Tuesday 25 January 2011
Chart star Lady Gaga's outrageous dress sense has proved to be divisive - after she was shortlisted for both most and least stylish star in this year's NME Awards.
The singer, who took dressing to new heights with her meat frock last year, is joined on both lists by former Oasis star Liam Gallagher, who has his own clothing range.
Leading the shortlists on the music side are Foals who have five nominations, including best British band and best album for Mercury-nominated Total Life Forever.
The quintet take on Arctic Monkeys, Biffy Clyro, Kasabian and Muse for the British band prize.
And they face releases by Arcade Fire, Crystal Castles, My Chemical Romance and Two Door Cinema Club in the best album section.
Arcade Fire, Biffy Clyro, Foals, Kasabian and Muse are in the running for best live band.
Arcade Fire and My Chemical Romance have four nominations each at the Shockwaves NME Awards which take place on February 23 at the O2 Brixton Academy.
Despite still not having played live or released their debut album, Gallagher's new act Beady Eye are up for best new band. They compete with Everything Everything, Hurts, The Drums and Two Door Cinema Club.
Foo Fighters and former Nirvana star Dave Grohl has already been announced as the recipient of this year's "godlike genius award".
