Katy Perry, MTV's big winner

U.S. singer Katy Perry, with three awards, including best video of the year, made good predictions and became the big winner of the 28th edition of the Video Music Awards, MTV awards dedicated to the best music videos the year. Perry, who started as a favorite with nine nominations, also took the statuette for best special effects and better collaboration, both for "ET" with Kanye West.

The British Adele shone also with three awards in the categories of Best Editing, Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography for the video of his famous song, "Rolling in the Deep." These three awards were announced before the start of the televised gala, which dragged on for two hours at the Nokia Theatre, Los Angeles (California).

Lady Gaga, who returned to give the note to appear dressed as a man (an alter ego known as Jo Calderone), won two awards: the best video and best female video message, both for "Born This Way." Beyoncé Knowles, who on the red carpet of the event announced she is pregnant, won a statuette for best choreography for "Run the World (Girls)," while Britney Spears, who was honored, took the award for best pop video for "Till the World Ends." Meanwhile Justin Bieber won the trophy for best male video for "U Smile", while Foo Fighters did the same with the best rock video for "Walk".

Nicki Minaj also took the award for best hip-hop video for "Super Bass", and Tyler The Creator was named best new artist.
