The Kids Choice Awards are one of the more uproarious award events where the emphasis is on raucous fun and less on who wins. Still it’s nice to be loved by the kids.
“I love the kids,” said an appreciative Perry, who was named Favorite Female singer, sounding a bit matronly at 28. “I think it’s the coolest award. I love you kids. Stay in school and stay safe.”

The awards, sponsored by childrens’ cable network Nickelodeon, are decided based on viewer votes. This year, more than 350 million votes cast to decide the winners at the 26th annual show. Voting takes place over the Internet and anyone can vote multiple times.
Both Stewart, 22, and Perry are coming off a rocky year in the relationship department. Perry just split from singer John Mayer, her boyfriend of several months. She got divorced last year from husband Russell Brand.
Stewart has been touch-and-go with her boyfriend Robert Pattinson, since her cheating scandal last July. Pattinson did not attend last night, but he and Kristen still seem to be going strong, despite wild tabloid speculation about breakups and makeups.
Gomez also went through a breakup with ex-boyfriend of 18 months, Justin Bieber. All three looked radiant and seemed to really appreciate the support they received from the audience… and voters.
Kristen Stewart in Osman Yousefzada
Stewart won two awards for favorite actress in “Breaking Dawn, Part 2” and for best female butkicker in “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Gomez won for favorite TV actress for “Wizards of Waverly Place,” although the show was edged out for favorite TV show by “Victorious.”
“Twilight fans have been the best ever. So thanks guys for honoring me in this way,” said Stewart, who wore an Osman Yousefzada outfit and black Christian Louboutin shoes.
Stewart also got a solid sliming with Sandra Bullock and Neal Patrick Harris.
For Gomez, the show may be a fond farewell to her career as a child actress. She won for her Disney series “Wizards of Waverly Place,” which ended last year. A special reunion show aired last week. From there she jumped right into the racy Harmony Korine film “Spring Breakers.”
