NEW YORK (AP) —
Katy Perry is MTV's first artist of the year.
The pop siren eclipsed Adele for the honor as MTV tries to call
attention to its musical roots.
MTV said Thursday that Perry's achievement of tying Michael Jackson with five No. 1 singles from the same album made her
omnipresent in pop culture. Perry's trying for a sixth with "The
One That Got Away."
Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" was a pretty easy choice for
song of the year.
