Katy Perry was a veritable golden girl in an off-the-shoulder gilded dress by Georges Chakra last night at the Grammy Nominations Concert Live, where she discovered that she’s nominated in the Album of the Year and Pop Vocal Album categories at the celebrity-studded awards ceremony, which will take place on 13 February in LA.
Perry, who recently married British comedian Russell Brand, will go head to head with pop rival Lady Gaga in both categories and will also have to see off Eminem for the coveted Album of the Year gong. Rapper Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, leads the nominations with 10 nods, including one for his hit song “Love The Way You Lie”, on which he collaborated with Rihanna.
Other crooners to score places on the shortlist include Hawaiian-born Bruno Mars with seven nominations and Lady Gaga, Jay-Z and country group Lady Antebellum, who all netted six nominations apiece.
May the best musician win!
