Katy Perry wins 5 People’s Choice Awards

Katy Perry was a big winner at the People’s Choice Awards Wednesday night, where the pop star won 5 trophies.

Perry snagged awards for Favorite Female Artist, Tour Headliner, Song Of The Year for "E.T." with Kanye West, Music Video for "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," and TV Guest Star for her appearance on "How I Met Your Mother."

"THANK U to every1 who voted for me for the @peopleschoice tonight! We won so many! Now I need to get more books 2 successfully display them!" Perry tweeted.

Katy wasn’t on hand to pick up the honors, as she canceled her plans earlier this week to be at the annual event. Although she didn’t say publicly why she backed out, Katy has faced some upheaval in her personal life recently, following her split with husband Russell Brand, and some crazy headlines her father has been making while trying to use his daughter’s name to further his religious causes.

Perry was nominated for a total of 7 PCA’s.

Hosted by Kaley Cuoco of the Big Bang Theory, the show took place live at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.

To determine the winners, fans cast a record-breaking 230+ million votes on, the official People's Choice Awards Facebook app and Twitter.
