Katy Perry's personal life may be in shambles, but 2012 may prove to be one of her best years yet professionally, as she swept the People's Choice Awards Wednesday night.
The pop princess, who chose not to attend the awards show in the wake of her announcement of her divorce from Russell Brand, was the big winner Wednesday night, taking home five awards.
The awards ranged across the board from favorite female artist to tour headliner and for song of the year for "ET" with Kanye West, music video for "Last Friday Night" and TV guest star for her role as Honey on How I Met Your Mother.
Though Katy Perry wasn't there in body, she certainly was in spirit, as she tweeted earlier in the week, "I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed!"
Congratulations to Katy Perry! Though some big chances lie ahead for her personally, hopefully the changes coming to her career this year will be only positive and help her to get through her divorce!
