What do songs about drug-induced sex and a preteen who rides around on a broom have in common? You people freaking love them.
Katy Perry didn't show up to the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday night, probably because she's still mourning her split from Russell Brand, but she ended up owning the night, along with Harry Potter.
"Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the People's Choice Awards," Perry wrote on her Twitter page Monday. "I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed! #KATYCATS."
Perry ended up taking home five awards: Favorite Female Artist, Tour Headliner, Song of the Year for "E.T.," Music Video for
"Last Friday Night," and TV Guest Star for her appearance on "How I Met Your Mother."
Way to go, Katycats. And now here's your obligatory cat-related exclamation: Me-wow!
Coming in just behind Katy (hehe) is Harry Potter. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 won four awards: Favorite Movie, Action Movie, Book Adaptation and Ensemble Movie Cast.
Neil Patrick Harris took home Favorite TV Comedy Actor for his role in How I Met Your Mother, and Lea Michele won Favorite TV Comedy Actress for Glee. Michele dedicated the award to "all the Rachel Berrys out there", which is a reference to her character on the show.
After winning for How I Met Your Mother, Neil Patrick Harris joked that his one year old twins, Gideon and Harper, "should be asleep in the limo at the valet."
Hope he cracked the windows.
Demi Lovato performed during the night and took home the award for Favorite Pop Artist.
"I won this award because of my fans so I dedicate this to you guys," Lovato said. "Without you guys tweeting so many times I wouldn’t be here tonight."
