Whether she wins or not, the MTV 2011 VMAs are sure to be a magical experience for Katy Perry. As the most-nominated artist there with 10 noms — and the first artist ever to be nominated for four videos in the same year — she’s sure to be celebrated regardless.
Perry took to the carpet wearing her pink hair, a dainty parasol, and, of course, her arm candy, Russell Brand, who helped her down the “portal.” She told MTV’s Sway, “He is a gentleman, chivalry isn’t dead.”
As for all of her nominations, Perry had this to say: “Well, it just means that all my hard work has been recognized by the people of MTV and the fans that are voted… but otherwise, I’m here to have a good time. I already had a shot of tequila at 12. I had an omelet and a shot of tequila.”
