Women always be changing their hair. It’s a maxim you can set your watch to. And celebrity ladies are no different. In fact, whether it’s for a role, because of a breakup, or simply because their agent told them putting blue streaks in their locks might garner them an extra bit of press (looking at you, Lauren Conrad), famous ladies are just as guilty as the rest of us of making impetuous hair moves. After the jump, we review some of the big hair changers so far this year — women who have gone from long to short, from short to long, from blonde to red and right back again. And don’t forget to tell us whose hair you covet and who you think should probably be sporting a paper bag over their head these days.
Just in case you weren’t sure what movie Katy Perry was promoting, she’s helpfully wearing it all over her ample bosoms. Keep reading »
“It just feels like the thing running our country is a bank, money. I know it sounds like an intense viewpoint, but I’m only slowly but surely getting the wool taken off my eyes. When I was a kid, I asked questions about my faith. Now I’m asking questions about the world. I think we are largely in desperate need of revolutionary change in the way our mindset is. Our priority is fame, and people’s wellness is way low. I say this knowing full well that I’m a part of the problem. I’m playing the game, though I am trying to reroute. Anyway, not to get all politically divulging and introspective, but the fact that America doesn’t have free health care drives me f**king absolutely crazy, and is so wrong.”
—Katy Perry shows her philosophical side in a new interview with Rolling Stone. Perry and Justin Bieber both think the U.S. should have universal health care. Sigh. Why can’t we get Congress to agree?
After the jump, Perry talks about those big old ta-tas of hers: Keep reading »
“I mean, is it really that different when it’s a skinny white woman in a bathing suit singing [about gay rights]? None of these women ever wear pants, first of all. Second of all, just because you’re wearing a goofy hat doesn’t make it performance art. I mean, that’s just my feeling about it. A lot of the music just sounds like bad Euro disco, though that first Ke$ha song ‘TiK ToK’ was good. But (Katy Perry‘s) ‘I Kissed a Girl‘ was just straight-up offensive. The whole thing is like, I kissed a girl so my boyfriend could masturbate about it later. It’s disgusting. It’s exactly every male fantasy of fake lesbian porn. It’s pathetic. And she’s not a good singer. I don’t want to trash other women. I mean, I think Jason Mraz is horrible. It’s not just like I hate other women performers. Jason Mraz, and the new James Blunt song is the worst thing that has ever been created on the face of the Earth.”
— This CNN interview with Kathleen Hanna about the new Le Tigre documentary, “Who Put The Bomp,” is amazeballs. I may not agree with every single thing she says (Lady Gaga does not sound like bad Euro disco!), but she’s always thought-provoking. And I love, love, love that she has the ovaries to speak her mind. [CNN] Keep reading »
“Planning escape from Japanese custody. It’s bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick … Stockholm syndrome kicking in. Just asked my guard out for (vegetarian) sushi. He giggled … Alcatraz! Shawshank Redemption! And now this! Ah, sweet blue bird of freedom!”
—Russell Brand‘s tweets on Sunday morning about being barred from entering the country of Japan to see wife Katy Perry perform. The problem was apparently several “priors” in his past. [Huffington Post]
While Russell seemed to have a sense of humor about the situation, Katy wasn’t so amused. See what she tweeted after the jump. Keep reading »
Behold, an image of Katy Perry from the set of her new music video, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F).” Wow, that is some serious hardware on her teeth. Good for her for joining the ranks of celebrity brace faces. I love that she opted for the colored bands to match her earrings. [Oh No They Didn't] Keep reading »
Katy Perry looks gorgeous on the new cover of Vanity Fair. And in the accompanying story, she talks about the thing we find the most interesting about her—the fact that she was raised by two ministers in an extremely evangelical household. It’s now common knowledge that Katy started her career as Katy Hudson, a gospel singer who’d only heard secular music at slumber parties, but in this interview she reveals some new details. “I didn’t have a childhood,” she explains, before divulging that she wasn’t allowed to say “Dirt Devil,” as in the vacuum cleaner, and that the only book her mother would read was the Bible.
After the jump, more details Katy’s shared about her upbringing. Keep reading »
