Katy Perry’s fourth single from Teenage Dream, “E.T.,” recently took the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, and as of today, March 31, it’s got an appropriately sci-fi themed music video to boost its popularity even further.

Last night was the annual People’s Choice Awards, one of the few awards shows that decides who brings home a trophy by asking the general public to vote. (And by “general public,” we mean teenage girls. How else do you explain Grown Ups winning Best Comedy?)
According to MTV, it was a good show this year, with plenty of big names in the pop music world accepting awards and performing for the audience.
