Katy Perry was the big winner at the People's Choice Awards last night.  She was the Favorite Female Artist, had the Favorite Song of the Year, had the Favorite Music Video and was the Favorite Tour Headliner.  Really?  Katy Perry?  Was it sympathy for the break-up of her marriage to Russell Brand?  (Yep, there goes the sanctity of marriage again!)

Other musical favorites last night were: Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, Rihanna, Eminem, Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars.  Here is the list:
Favorite Male Artist
Bruno Mars
Favorite Female Artist
Katy Perry

I am so glad I did not waste my time watching this last night.  I used to watch every awards show.  But, I don't think I'm one of the "People" (if I ever was) that would make these "Choices".  What a load of crap.  Hey, "People":  listen to KJRW to hear some good music!
