Katy Perry Wins Five People's Choice Awards Including Fave Guest Star for 'How I Met Your Mother'
Katy Perry may be regretting her last minute decision to cancel on the People’s Choice Awards, where she was honored with five awards out of the six for which she was nominated.
“Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the People’s Choice Awards,” she tweeted on Jan. 9, just two days before the ceremony. “I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed! #KATYCATS”
Though she lost to Demi Lovato in the favorite pop artist category, Perry nabbed a total of five awards for the evening – none of which were broadcast during the show itself. A full list of winners posted online reveals that Perry was selected as the favorite TV guest star for her stint on How I Met Your Mother, beating out Gwyneth Paltrow (Glee), Jim Carrey (The Office), Kristin Chenoweth (Glee) and Michael J. Fox (The Good Wife).
"THANK U to every1 who voted for me for the @peopleschoice tonight!” Perry tweeted after the Jan. 11 awards show. “We won so many! Now I need to get more books 2 successfully display them!”
Among Perry’s additional awards are favorite female artist, favorite song of the year for “E.T.”, favorite music video for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” and favorite tour headliner.
The People’s Choice Awards were expected to be Perry’s first public appearance since news broke of her impending divorce from comedian Russell Brand. During the media frenzy that followed, Perry’s father -- an evangelical minister -- was quoted as making several off-color remarks during his sermons. He later apologized.
Perry is next expected to attend the Grammy Awards on Feb. 12, where she is nominated for record of the year and best pop solo performance for “Firework.”
