The MTV Video Music Award nominations for 2011 have been released, with US pop star Katy Perry in the running for nine awards in total.
Perry, who is married to British comedian Russell Brand, is up for video of the year for her track Firework, best pop video and best special effects.
Singer Adele and rapper Tinie Tempah, who have stormed the US charts this year, have both been nominated for seven awards each.
Other nominees include Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.
The VMAs are set to take place in Los Angeles on 28 August and will be broadcast live in the States.
The Teenage Dream singer, who is also nominated for best female video, best collaboration, best art direction and best cinematography, told the music channel:
“I have nine nominations. I thought that was a typo or something.
“That’s the most nominations I’ve ever gotten for anything.”
Lady Gaga, who was nominated for a record-breaking 13 nominations last year, received just three.
The Bad Romance star dominated the 2010 awards, taking home eight prizes altogether.
