Florence + The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd kissed a girl over the weekend and it just happened to be Katy Perry. Not that she’s easy to miss with her blue-purple ombre hair.
The rumoured couple were seen canoodling at Coachella over the weekend, the music festival where hipsters wear peace flowers in their hair, Tupac is resurrected and romances bloom. It’s a place where magic things happen.
Though his friends poked fun of him about “KP” he tweeted: ”Best Coachella ever. Scratch that, best weekend ever. Dre, Snoop, Pac, Nate, Fiddy & KP.”
The pair were spotted while Rihanna performed during Calvin Harris’ set. We’re not sure if they’re official, but it’s probably safe to say he kissed a girl and liked it.
Looks like Katy Perry moves fast.
While performing at the Naval Academy in Maryland, the pop singer asked one of the midshipmen to help her in reenacting the “iconic sailor pose” on stage by giving her a kiss.
As the young man revealed his age to Perry, she cheekily replied, “Is this legal? Well, I’m a little bit older than you but that’s all right I can be your Mrs. Robinson.”
And to loud cheers, the two performed a romantic smooch.
How nice of Katy to make this boy’s dream come true…and break a million other boys’ hearts…
What do you think? Do you think they reenacted the pose well?
The Wanted’s Tom Parker revealed the real meaning of their song “Glad You Came” and none of us are surprised. We talk about this and Katy Perry dancing to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” with her friends.
Both Katy Perry and James Franco were infected by the “Call Me Maybe” craze that’s been sweeping across the ENTIRE world for some time now, both releasing separate videos of themselves singing and dancing with friends to Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit. Try to deny that you haven’t done the same thing. Yea, you can’t.
Purple-haired Katy Perry released a video of herself dancing with friends in fast and slow motion with an orange monkey at Coachella.
Then James Franco, who you’ve previously seen singing to Selena Gomez, continued to delight us by posting a video of himself driving and singing “Call Me Maybe.” Unfortunately he doesn’t know all the words but man, he destroys the chorus.
Justin Bieber and his friends initially whipped together a video montage of him and his famous buddies dancing to the song, which turned out to be great publicity for his artist. Admittedly, I blast the song on the car radio whenever it’s on but I can’t help but wonder, will we ever get sick of it?
Look away! I wish I never saw these photos but I did and now I can’t take it back. Here’s how Katy Perry, Megan Fox and Ashley Olsen would look as grizzly bearded men, because you were obvs all wondering. The photoshop experts also added in chest hair for legitimacy. [Source]
All these celebrities got to go to Coachella this weekend and be cute. While I’m still grappling with mild envy (no, I really enjoyed doing my banking this weekend) at least there are lots of photos to help us imagine we were there.
Katy Perry (above) makes me want to dye my hair a non-permanent purple and blue, don a flower ban and do a Coachella rain dance, if such a thing exists. She gets my vote for best Coachella look, but there are some more worthies below.
Lea Michele was apparently VERY happy to stand next to this red alligator. She went with a simple white dress and stuck to her traditional pose. She always, always does this exact same pageant post and smile.
Rihanna went with the trademark Top Shop crop top, badass ripped denim shorts and a Chanel jacket. She also wore sunglasses at night to warn you that you don’t want to mess with her. S
My second favourite look. mainly because of the classic hat. But can the girl smile? She’s at the Mulberry BBQ Pool Party after all.
Don’t I look fed up, listening to my fave songs over and over again? Not that I don’t love them, but a girl has to get her fill of new songs once in a while. Occasionally a new track will come out to tease me but I need the whole album to satiate me!
Bluntly put, I have an addiction to these artists and I need another album hit. They should really have a support group for these types things, don’t you think?
Here are the upcoming albums that I’m most excited about:
1) Taylor Swift
A new album is said to be in the works, but I still can’t help but shout HURRY UP! You can’t blame me for being impatient because this album is rumoured to be a good one! Taylor even told Vogue that her new album would be about “an earth shattering, not so recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak.”
Taylor can this album possibly be about your painful break up with Jake Gyllenhaal? I can’t wait to hear the juicy details in the form of lyrics. It’s going to be a good one! And even though her track list is not released yet Taylor said she recorded 25 new songs! If Safe & Sound and Eyes Open are any indication how this album will sound, then I can not wait any longer!
Finally Kesha is back! I know you guys secretly all missed her as much as I did. With a record rumored to be releasing in May, I can only imagine what new adventures this sleazy Diva has gotten herself into. I mean she just finished recording a collaboration with Wayne Coyne about doing acid. I know one thing’s for sure, everyone’s excited and already asking, can it be May yet?
3) Katy Perry
What’s the best way to cure heartbreak? Answer: an awesome album burning the guy who did you wrong! According to Katy her new “music is about to get real f**king dark. You’d never see my face because my hair would be in it.” I love it already! With Russell’s new tell all book and Katy’s new album can this be the start of a feud? I guess we will just have to wait and see! One things for sure everyone have your popcorn ready!

Reasons why I love Katy Perry: she has wicked blue hair, she’d go to Starbucks in a bedazzled, feathered costume, and she loves M83 and Gotye.
During her photoshoot with Teen Vogue, she revealed she’s a bit of a control freak and very hands on when she chooses her wardrobe. ”I’m involved with everything I do to an annoying point,” she said.
She also talked about the attention she’d get when she first started singing as a young child. “I felt like I had a magic trick cause everybody’s attention would be everywhere else and then when I’d start singing they’d be like aw! So it was like the only thing that I could pull out of my hat.”

In case you haven’t heard, Google Glasses are the new big thing. They’re essentially wearable smartphones, because apparently it’s too hard to carry one in your pocket. The glasses can help you navigate to a new cafe, enable a video call with a friend or allow you to take a photo — just by a simple command.
Oh and here’s what different celebrities would look like wearing Google Glasses:
I have to admit that Google Glasses look pretty epic, but one thing I wondered about was whether they’d be a distraction while walking down the street. We get distracted enough looking at our cell phones, what if parts of our vision were actually blocked by an app?
With that in mind, here’s the parody that Google never wanted you to see.
India is the country where Katy Perry was proposed to and where she she got married. Although the marriage didn’t work out, she did pack home a snazzy Bollywood remix for “California Gurls.”
The remix was commissioned for her show by Jack O.A.T for her 2012 performance in India. While it includes a lot of the original composition, I love the Bollywood flair. Plus the video just makes me want to dance. [Source]

Katy Perry’s life is so interesting it deserves an entire feature length film. For someone in their twenties, that’s a pretty big deal.
The 3D concert movie follows her rise from a church singing Christian to a candy bra wearing pop star, and will appropriately be out on the Fourth of July weekend (she’s living the American Dream after all).
It looks like the movie will include tons of cool vintage home videos from her childhood and footage from her California Dreams Tour. ”If you have a dream, you have to go on a journey to fulfill that dream,” she says in the clip. The movie looks interesting, although I worry it glamorizes fame as being the pinnacle of “greatness.”
Still, if you haven’t had a chance to see her California Dreams Tour yet, Katy Perry: Part of Me is another way to see it!
Watch the trailer below:
Katy Perry outsmarted the Kids’ Choice slimers by wearing a radioactive sewer green colour. The small act of defiance would camouflage any disgusting sludge thrown on her during the awards by making it look like she had already been poured on. Damn Katy Perry for thinking ahead! From then on, any spontaneous sliming throughout the ceremony would be so two hours ago.
Like Katy Perry, Selena Gomez chose to go with a midriff baring top (gasp!) but manages to make it parent-endorsed by choosing white lace to counteract its risque nature. The outfit is by Dolce & Gabbana.
I’m not into Kristen Stewart’s matching shoes and dress. [Warning: cheesy joke coming.] It makes me feel blue. The hair pulled back with the lacey Stella McCartney dress makes it look a little too pristine for the Kids’ Choice Awards. She could have at least added her trademark worn out Converse.
Emma Stone gets the “Serious Fashion for Serious People Award.” Her Antonio Berardi dress is chic without being too stuck up and without being too… slime green.
And the guys….
Josh Hutcherson roughed it in a pair of jeans, plaid shirt and beige jacket. It’s a little too casual (especially the shoes) but we’ll take it. Swoon!
One Direction donned their tightest pants (I’m looking at you Louis) and firmest hair gel. Notice how their strategic clothing binds them together. Niall and Zayn wear white on the top and dark pants on the bottom. Harry and Liam wear dark blazers on top and white pants on the bottom. Then there’s Louis… who is glueing the band together in all white.
Just like Louis, Cody Simpson wore all white and even buttoned his collared shirt all the way to the top (he was feeling a little shy). He also managed to pose with his sunglasses just so for the entire night. The pose is a dangerous tactic to hook more fans, but he knows it never fails.
Katy Perry released the official lyric video for her new song “Dressin’ Up” so you don’t even have to memorize the lyrics to sing along with it. Yes, you can unabashedly admit that you’ll be singing along with it tonight with your friends, or better yet bring the lyrics to life (though probably not with your friends).
The track is dedicated to scandalous role play in the bedroom, you know, librarian turned police officer turned dominatrix. Oh la. I can only imagine what the music video’s going to be like for this one.
Listen to it below:
What’s better than one Katy Perry song? Well, a whole bunch of them mashed together equals one epic track. “Tommie Sunshine’s Megasix Smash-Up” encapsulates Perry’s cupcake-bra-wearing, blue hair, braceface, extra-terrestrial, GI Jane aura.
The DJ took all her hits from the past 18 months and mixed them together in seven minutes. Included is: “Teenage Dream,” “California Gurls,” “Firework,” “The One That Got Away,” “Last Friday Night (TGIF),” and “E.T.”
The track will be included on Perry’s album Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, which comes out today. [Source]
We speculated last week why Katy Perry joined the army in her new video for “Part of Me” and of course, it would be because of a bad breakup. In the beginning of the Ben Mor-directed video Perry splits from her sleazy beau and is so angry that she decides to join the Marines. The beauty queen goes to a gas station washroom and chops of her hair into an unflattering crop — though she still manages to pull it off.
We watch Perry maintain the sparkling part of her soul that her boyfriend could never take away. Between scenes of her crawling under barbed wire and being submerged in icy cold water, she burns a letter from her ex and sings: ”You chewed me up and spit me out / Like I was poison in your mouth / You took my light, you drained me down / That was then and this is now.”
This song is the perfect breakup anthem, which is kind of fitting considering she just separated from her husband Russell Brand. Still, she wrote the song long before their split so it’s coincidental that it would come out now.
Katy Perry’s new track “Wide Awake” from her new album Teenage Dream has a slower tempo and a more introspective feel than some of the songs we’ve heard in the past. Perhaps this is apt considering her recent breakup with husband Russell Brand.
While still being optimistic, Perry talks about what she’s learned from her mistakes: “Thunder rumbling/ Castles crumbling/ I am trying to hold on/ God knows that I tried/ Seeing the bright side/ But I’m not blind anymore/ I’m wide awake.”
Although the song was written with Bonnie McKee before her breakup the lyrics are still relevant to her life. The song is about dealing with the emotions that go along with a split and finding a newfound sense of empowerment.
The full album Teenage Dream will be out on March 27 and tonight we’ll see Perry’s music video premiere for “Part of Me.”
Listen to it here:
Before Katy Perry revealed the song she’d be singing in London she warned her fans: “This is about to get real embarrassing.”
She ended up throwing on a Yankees hat and singing a rendition of the Jay Z/Kanye song “N**gas in Paris.” And don’t worry, Katy Perry sang about “Ninjas in Paris.” Last year Perry covered “Big Pimpin” during a performance in Auckland.
Do you think she pulls it off?
Kim Kardashian might be getting a lot of slams lately but apparently a lot of people really like her as she now has more Twitter followers than Obama.
In other news, the world is officially ending.
At 14 million followers Kardashian has eclipsed some of the most influential people in the world. Not that it’s a competition or anything…
Kim beats Oprah, the Dalai Lama and Jack Dorsey, who founded Twitter.
Also, apparently being the president of the United States doesn’t draw as much attention as a reality star. Still, Obama is coming up close to her with 13 million followers.
Kim is the seventh most followed person in the world but she still doesn’t beat Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber or Katy Perry. So there’s still something to work toward…
Katy Perry decided to torture us by releasing a 25-second teaser of her upcoming music video for “Part of Me” and then make us wait until next Wednesday to see the whole thing. Evil!!
The video is very Demi Moore in G.I. Jane and features Perry as a scruffed-up soldier. The singer still manages to look good with her face painted in camouflage. Perry looks grim-faced as she hear bullets and helicopters flying around her. The vibe fits the lyrics: “Throw your bombs and your blows / But you’re not gonna break my soul.”
Watch it here:
Katy Perry is the next celebrity to deliver a 3D adventure of her life. I thought Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never” was one documentary too many but apparently the genre is sticking.
The movie “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” will essentially be Perry’s “California Dreams” tour, just in case you missed it while it was in town. I never saw the appeal of watching a concert in the theatre. I supposed you’d get better views than you would in the nosebleed section but the whole point of going to a live concert is to feel the vibe of the crowd and hear the music vibrate around you.
Will you be singing along with it in the theatre this summer?
