Katy Perry posed for Annie Liebovitz on the June cover of Vanity Fair and I must admit I’m not used to seeing her in such a “normal” look. Sedate makeup? (For her.) Check. Sedate outfit? (For her.) Check. Eyebrow-raising quotes about Planned Parenthood, her evangelical parents, and her boobs? Ah, yes, those are right inside. [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
So many ridonkulous things are said about celebrities on a daily basis that their normal course of action is just to ignore. But every now and then, a magazine or website publishes a story that pisses off a celebrity so much that they decide to sue. For Katy Perry, Australian gossip rag New Weekly Magazine crossed the line when they ran a story alleging that she cheated on her new hubby Russell Brand with her producer, Benny Blanco. The article they ran gave very little in the way of proof. All it did was quote one of Katy’s former friends, Angela Summers, who said Katy liked to flirt with wild-haired Benny. Keep reading »

We won’t get to see the full vid until the 31st, but Katy posted this image—plus the two after the jump—on Facebook to give us a taste of her turquoise contacts, pink veiny forehead, and space-age fingernails. I’m kind of loving it. What do you think? Keep reading »
“I recognized the psalmist gift in her performance. Yet she sang out, ‘I kissed a girl, and I liked it,’ while thousands joined her. One part of my heart soared . . . the other part broke for the thousands of hungry souls being fed something that didn’t nourish their spirit, but fed their flesh.”
—Katy Perry‘s mom, preacher Mary Perry Hudson, explains how she felt seeing her daughter perform her first hit single, “I Kissed a Girl.” This is a snippet from the memoir proposal Mary’s been shopping around to publishers which she says will not be “Christian proselytizing or a Katy Perry tell-all.” [NY Post]

Covering songs is dangerous. You have to pick something obscure enough that a zillion people haven’t already done it, but recognizable enough that the audience will want to sing along. You have to give the song your own spin, while keeping true enough to the original that the song maintains its basic shape. So I think it’s a little strange that Katy Perry
decided to cover “Born This Way,” Lady Gaga
‘s new single that’s been accused of being a Madonna “Express Yourself” rip-off. Why? Well, because it’s so darn new. Also, I think the song is kind of a snoozer, so it you aren’t gonna pop out of an egg/womb-thingy for it, why bother? [People

Here are some sample lyrics: “I wanna bathe … in your milky way … Rockets on deck/ Tell me what’s next/ Alien sex! I’mma disrobe you then I’mma probe you.” Bet Russell Brand loves that.

…for all her blessings. I’m not sure which I’m more transfixed by — her incredibly visible and perky chi-chis in this photo or that amazing before/after GIF that I posted on Friday… Keep reading »
