Katy Perry wins, Yolanda victims remembered during MTV EMA music awards

Katy Perry won the award for best female singer at the 2013 MTV EMA music awards in Amsterdam on Sunday, while fellow winner Thirty Seconds to Mars' Jared Leto called for a minute of silence for the victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda.

The best female prize was the most closely watched contest at the Viacom-owned music network's 20th annual European awards ceremony as pop divas Perry, Lady Gaga, and Miley Cyrus were in contention.

Claiming her prize, the U.S. singer gave a dramatic performance of her song "Unconditionally", suspended like a sequin-covered glitter ball 9 meters (30 feet) above a gigantic outer-space-themed set.

Cyrus, who was awarded best video for "Wrecking Ball", capitalized on her infamous "twerking" encounter with musician Robin Thicke at the U.S. Video Music Awards in August, walking the red carpet in a bold mini dress with the words "Please Stop Violence" wrapped tightly around her hip.

Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto reacted to his band's winning the best alternative prize by calling for a minute of silence for those affected by Typhoon Yolanda, which hit the Philippines on Friday, killing an estimated 10,000 people.

British-Irish boy band One Direction had a good night, taking the prize for best pop, while Harry Styles, known as much for his singing in the band as for his celebrity girlfriends, was awarded best style.

U.S. rapper Eminem was given the "Global Icon" prize for lifetime achievement along with best hip-hop, just a week after being declared artist of the year at the inaugural YouTube Music Awards, run by emerging music industry rival Google.

Justin Bieber held on to his best male status for a fourth consecutive year, while Beyonce and Bruno Mars won awards for best live act and best song, respectively. China's Chris Lee won best worldwide act.
