Katy Perry Nominated For 9 VMAs
"E.T" singer Katy Perry felt like she had woken up on Christmas Day when she discovered she had received nine MTV Video Music Awards nominations. Perry is up for more prizes than any other artist, and she still can't quite believe how many accolades she is in the running for.
"OMG! I just got word that I'm nominated for 9 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS!!! I'm kinda speechless/nervous/turned on! I can't sleep . I'm so excited . It feels like every birthday/christmas/first kiss I ever had. Thanks so much for believing in me. I owe u. [sic]" she wrote on her Twitter.
Katy - who is married to Russell Brand - has urged her fans to go and vote for her to win, and she is already thinking about what daring dresses she is going to wear to the ceremony, which takes place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on August 28.
"now . u have to VOTE! Go to www.mtv.com to vote for ur favorite videos ... (u can pick mine if u fancy) ... Off to dream up the outfit(s)! [sic]"
However, the "Firework" hitmaker is surprised that some of her favourite songs and artists have not been nominated for awards: "I do miss my RiRi, (s&m) Swifty, (back to dec) Kesha (blow) & Robyn (every vid!) Jessie J, (pricetag) in the/any categories. [sic]"
Among the awards Katy is nominated for are Best Pop Video for "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)," Best Female Video for "Firework" and Best Cinematography for "Teenage Dream."
