Ecstatic Katy Perry Responds To VMA Nominations, Weighs In On Lack Of Noms For Rihanna, Kesha And Robyn

Katy Perry can’t believe she’s up for nine Moonmen at next month’s 2011 Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. Like, how stoked is she?

“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,” she tweeted. “I owe u.”

While she’s stunned she garnered so much attention from the VMA gods, she’s also a bit surprised some of her pals didn’t get as many or any nods at the annual party. After a flurry of tweets about her own nominations, she lamented the fact that a few other artists didn’t manage a nomination.

So, who would she have included? “I do miss my RiRi, (s&m) Swifty, (back to dec) Kesha (blow) & Robyn (every vid!) Jessie J, (pricetag) in the/any categories,” she tweeted. “#ohmanitstough.”

She’s right. It is tough. Narrowing a year’s worth of awesomeness to five per category is a difficult task. So while her pals may not have nabbed as many noms as she did, her nods for Video of the Year and Best Female Video for “Firework,” Best Pop Video for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” and Best Collaboration, Best Art Direction, Best Direction, Best Editing and Best Special Effects for the Floria Sigismondi-directed “E.T.,” which features fellow nominee Kanye West, and Best Cinematography for “Teenage Dream” should brighten her day a bit.

Still, it makes us wonder which of Katy’s picks do you think should have gotten nominated? Vote now through tomorrow (7/22) at noon in our poll and let us know.
