LOS ANGELES (AP) ― Selena Gomez conjured five wins at the Teen Choice Awards.
The star of “Wizards of Waverly Place” was selected as choice TV actress, female hottie and music group with her band The Scene. The group also was awarded the choice single trophy for “Who Says” and love song for “Love You Like a Love Song,” which the 19-year-old actress-singer performed at Sunday’s ceremony at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Gibson Amphitheatre.
“This is for all of you guys,” Gomez told the screeching crowd. “This isn’t mine.”
Other early winners included Ellen DeGeneres as choice comedian, Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene from “The Twilight Saga” as choice scene movie stealers and Ashton Kutcher as choice romantic comedy movie actor for “No Strings Attached.” Before leading the crowd in a sing-along of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” Kutcher provided the crowd with some topical advice.
“Don’t ever charge anything on a credit card if you don’t already have the money in the bank to pay for it,” he said.
Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am kicked off the fan-favorite ceremony, which honors celebrities in TV, film, music and sports. Others expected to sail away with surfboard-shaped trophies Sunday include multiple nominees like “The Vampire Diaries,” “Pretty Little Liars” and Taylor Swift, who will be honored with the Ultimate Choice Award.
