MTV officials in Los Angeles now say Lady Gaga’s eight-win sweep at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards was not a VMA record. Peter Gabriel previously won 10 for “Sledgehammer” in 1987.

The outrageous singer picked up the biggest prize of the night, video of the year, wearing an outfit sure to anger the PETA-crowd: a dress and chapeau that appeared to be made of cuts of meat.

Another larger-than-life diva from another generation presented Gaga with her trophy _ Cher.

Gaga’s eight wins ties with A-ha’s “Take on Me” in 1986 for the 2nd highest number of wins in one night. MTV officials had initially told backstage media Gaga’s sweep was a record.
