What does hard work, undeniable girl power, a sprinkling of sass and, oh yeah, some very memorable music videos get you? Well, if you’re Katy Perry, that winning combination gets you the most nominations at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.

“I have nine nominations!” Perry shouted when she heard about her noms from MTV News’ Sway during Wednesday’s night’s (July 20) on-air nominations event. “Nine? I thought that was a typo or something! Oh my god, really? That’s the most nominations I’ve ever gotten for anything,” she added excitedly.

Perry was in Seattle when we caught up with her as she took some time off from her busy California Dreams Tour to react to the news of her many VMA nods. So, what exactly is she up for? Perry will be competing 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. Her dreamy “Teenage Dream” clip even nabbed a nomination for Best Cinematography.

“I’m so excited. I’m nervous like it’s my first time,” she said during the MTV.com live stream held backstage, where fans caught a glimpse of the pop star getting ready to take the stage. During the sit-down with Sway, Perry’s fellow nominees were announced, and other big VMA contenders include Yeezy, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Adele, Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj. For a complete rundown of this year’s nominees, check out MTV’s VMA nominations list.
