Katy Perry said goodbye to her cotton candy pink locks in this ad for GHD hair styling products. Instead, she channeled her inner Snow White, holding a poisoned apple. Personally, I love this look and think it’s far superior to either Kristen Stewart or Lily Collins as the fairy tale heroine. I also love the fact that Katy’s version of the tale takes place in art deco era New York City. [Huffington Post]
“I’ve been passionate about music all my life. I’ve been playing classical piano since I was six. So I understand the form, but it will be fun to be able to translate a message. It’ll be more on the dark, more tragically romantic [side] … I think it’s much like tattooing or the TV show or makeup, my clothing line, fashion. All those things, they’re just different outlets to be able to be creative. So music, I think it’s going to be one of those things.”
—Kat Von D tells E! News that, in the wake of the cancellation of “LA Ink,” she will be recording an album. Apparently last month, she sang “November Rain” during Fashion Week? This could either be a trainwreck in progress, or total genius. [NY Daily News]
Lauren and David Blair tied the knot in 1984. But they didn’t want their public pledge of love for each other to be a one-time thing. So they decided to renew their vows, again and again, each time in a different location. On October 2nd, they renewed their vows for the 99th time, making it their 100th marriage to each other. To put the numbers even more in context, the couple set the Guinness World Record for the “Most Marriage Vow Renewals by the Same Couple” back in 2001, when they renewed their vows for the 66th time. With each subsequent renewal, they have beaten their own record.
So why does the couple do this?

“My mother said ‘I told you!’ She always thought—I hate this, but I’m being honest! She said, ‘I always knew you were gonna marry a white girl!’ It was a trip because [when Idina] took me home, her dad came out and I was like, ‘Ok, well take off that hood then and let’s see.’ No, I’m just kidding! I said, ‘You tough with the fiery cross in your yard!’ No, I gotta say I was really lucky. I don’t know what they felt on the inside, but I was very fortunate. They’re very loving, accepting. They’re great grandparents. I can’t lie, I had no issues there.”
—Taye Diggs jokes on Sway’s radio show about how he and wife Idina Menzel’s families reacted to their interracial relationship. The couple has a 2-year-old son, and Taye has now written a kid’s book called Chocolate Me, which teaches children to deal with racism and taunting from their classmates. [Hello Beautiful]
Ian Somerhalder, of “The Vampire Diaries” and “Lost,” is obviously one of the hottest guys on planet earth. And I especially love that he doesn’t take himself too seriously. Take, for example, this photo shoot he did for Flaunt magazine. It’s so blissfully goofy. Let’s just say, I’d let him rescue me with that lifesaver any day.
What happens when you put together style guru Tim Gunn with super trainer Harley Pasternak and carpenter extraordinaire Ty Pennington? Why, it sure sounds like ABC is creating a male version of “The View” with their new show, “The Revolution,” which will star these three guys as co-hosts. As the network explains in a recent press release about the casting, “Our goal is to include inspiring and informative motivators as we build ‘The Revolution’ team and continue to evolve our lineup with the type of lifestyle programming that daytime viewers are interested in seeing.” All they need now is a famous older newscaster to steer this talk show ship—maybe Larry King?— and the formula will be complete.
