Katy Perry & Justin Timberlake Top ‘2014 People’s Choice Awards’ Music Nominees

Published: Wednesday 6th Nov 2013 by Rashad

Katy Perry‘s ‘Prism’ power continues to outshine the competition – a feat we expect to be a mainstay this award season.

For, after storming single and album charts alike with tunes like ‘Roar’ and ‘Dark Horse’ (and their parent album), the songstress can now boast leading the 2014 People Choice Award nominees with a whopping 5 nods.

Justin Timberlake, whose 2013 wasn’t too shabby either (see:  best selling album of the year, two #1 albums, and blockbuster tour), also notched 5 nods including listing in categories like Favorite Pop Artist and Favorite Song. 

But, while top acts like Demi LovatoBruno Mars and One Direction follow with four nods a piece, some fans have griped about the absence of color (*cough cough*) in this year’s nominations list.  See it in full below:

    YAAAAAAAS CIARA GETTING THESE NOMINATIONS AYEE NEXT IS GRAMMY NOMINATIONS. C SQUAD WE GOTTA VOTE ARE ASSES OFF WE CANT HAVE RIHANNA WIN SHE’S NOT REAL R&B.

    • Lucia November 6, 2013

      Lmao if you think the C-Squad can outvote the Navy then you’re sadly mistaken. But I do agree that Rihanna isn’t R&B but she’s black, so you know how that goes…

      • Super Cisus November 6, 2013

  4. lina November 6, 2013

    • Molly November 6, 2013

      Who

  5. Vee November 6, 2013

    Rihanna is pop… Not r&b jeesh. Just cos her face is brown. You could have katy perry sing diamonds or stay and it would be classed as pure pop. Nuff said.

    • Super Cisus November 6, 2013

      Rihalienna is trash that’s wtf that ho is

  6. Mezzy November 6, 2013

    I did notice that the list does have a lack of people of colour. Ciara or Alicia should win in the R&B artist category but since the public vote Justin or even Rihanna is likely to vote. It’s a popularity vote in a lot of these award shows. They should be more like the grammys were a panel decide the winners IMO.

  7. Honeymoon Avenue November 6, 2013

    Congrats for Ariana!

  8. Lucia November 6, 2013

    Robin Thicke’s album was garbage! Commercial doesn’t always equal trash, Robin! And you already know JT, One Direction and the other media darlings will sweep the PCA’s. Nothing new here.

    squad –
    a small group engaged in a common effort or occupation

  10. Slayty Perry (Birthday) November 6, 2013

    Katy will win most of her awards as she does every year at this award show.

  11. Jass November 6, 2013

    I’ll be voting for slayara f*** the rest.

  12. Navy Nick November 6, 2013

    CHILE THIS IS A MESS, NO SCANDAL?!?! SO OVER WHITEYWOOD!

  13. Stop the drama Start the music November 6, 2013

    Congrats Justin. This award show is irrelevant to me tho. Won’t be watching.

  14. BeyIsKing November 6, 2013

    Award shows are basic and such a bore now. Late 90s and early 2000s now those were award shows

    • Teacher November 7, 2013

      When Beyonce was relevant? Oh I see.

  15. mezzy November 6, 2013

    *Rihanna or JT are likely to win.
    *where

  16. Rosie November 6, 2013

    This show is known to be rigged for whoever shows up and no one takes it seriously so I could care less.
    But what in the fresh hell is the Alternative category. Absolutely NONE of those bands are even close to Alternative except Muse, who fell off musically sometime around the first Twilight film.

  17. xedos November 6, 2013

    so Demi have more following and fan base the rihanna? i’m looking at these nominations it looks like its a show made for people in Utah. its so white. i don’t see the difference between Kathy Perry and rihanna music.

  18. Slayrita Legendora November 6, 2013

    The industry is completely pitiful. To think that the yardstick for quality (based on this) is meant to be some superficial wig changing talentless 30 year old who sings S Club 7 anthems.

    • Super Cisus November 6, 2013

      Where is Rita’s album? That b**** just be walking around sucking d*** for tracks that will never see the light of day

  19. joeybadass November 6, 2013

    I dont care what anybody says i am extremely proud of ciara 2013 has been her year! So far she’s been nominated for every award show 🙂 you go ciara!

  20. Touché November 6, 2013

    Favorite R&B Artist: Justin Timberlake, Rihanna? Wtf? I wonder if Rihanna gets offended when they always put her in that category.

  21. Idontstanforpplidontknow November 7, 2013

    Smh at the rnb category, as an aspiring rnb artist, it’s Kind of discouraging to see the list. Where is Tamar, where is k michele ( personally I don’t listen to her music but still) seems like alot of black artist have to wait around fit the decking bet awards to get shine. However I’m no buzz kill. Congrats to everyone, I see Ariana taking breakout artist. She had an amazing voice. Hopefully she changes it up a bit and doesn’t become a bore. That voice is golden. And fan base category? Why?

  22. John November 17, 2013

    Vote for britney. she deserves to win!! go votee hard!
