Not only don’t her hips lie, they get nominated for awards! Proving that sexy and catchy really do garner popularity (who knew?), Shakira led the list of nominees for the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers tied the Brazillian bombshell with seven noms for their song, “Dani California.” It will go up against the hips of Shakira, “Ain’t No Other Man” by Christina Aguilera, Madonna’s “Hung Up” and Panic! At The Disco’s “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” for video of the year.

Other categories and award battles include:
