[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm] landed the most Video Music Award nominations this year with nine. She was predictably ecstatic about their nominations, based on her reactions on Twitter.
Katy attended MTV’s on-air nominations announcement Wednesday night and reacted to her nine nominations with utter shock.
“Nine? I thought that was a typo or something! Oh my god, really? That’s the most nominations I’ve ever gotten for anything,” she said to MTV’s Sway during the event.
She was quick to let her fans know and get the voting rolling for her videos as soon as possible.
Later on, in the wee hours of Thursday morning, Katy admitted the honor being nominated for the most VMAs kept her awake and excited.
Ever gracious about the honors from MTV, Katy also made sure she gave a shout-out to her fellow female artists, like Rihanna and Taylor Swift, who she may feel were snubbed.
We’re just as excited for Katy as this is the first time she’s gotten this kind of great recognition for her videos! Voting has already begun at MTV.com; will you be voting for “Firework” to win Video of the Year?
