Katy Perry felt like she had woken up on Christmas Day when she discovered she had received nine MTV Video Music Awards nominations.

"I can't sleep . I'm so excited . It feels like every birthday/christmas/first kiss I ever had. Thanks so much for believing in me. I owe u."
Katy - who is married to Russell Brand - has urged her fans to go and vote for her to win and she is already thinking about what daring dresses she is going to wear to the ceremony, which takes place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on August 28.
She added in another tweet: "now . u have to VOTE! Go to www.mtv.com to vote for ur favorite videos ... (u can pick mine if u fancy) ... Off to dream up the outfit(s)! (sic)"
However, the 'Firework' hitmaker is surprised that some of her favourite songs and artists have not been nominated for awards.
She tweeted: "I do miss my RiRi, (s&m) Swifty, (back to dec) Kesha (blow) & Robyn (every vid!) Jessie J, (pricetag) in the/any categories. (sic)"
