Earlier this week, reports surfaced that the Beach Boys weren’t putting their hands up for Katy Perry‘s summer anthem, “California Gurls.” The word on the street was that they were suing Katy for having Snoop Dogg chant their classic line, “I wish they all could be California girls” at the end of the track. Talk about melting a popsicle.
But today it appears that is only half the story. Keep reading »

Katy Perry is officially the best birthday gift giver, possibly ever. For her fiance Russell Brand‘s 35th anniversary of existence, she has bought him a trip to space. He’ll be making the voyage on the Virgin Galactic. After three days of astronaut training, he’ll be aboard the shuttle that will travel 365,000 feet into the atmosphere traveling much, much faster than the speed of sound. Russell and the other passengers will experience five minutes of weightless during the flight, and will be able to see 800 miles in any direction into space or towards the earth below. Keep reading »
“Speaking in tongues is as normal to me as ‘Pass the salt.’ It’s a secret, direct prayer language to God. A lot of religions use meditation or chanting. My dad speaks in tongues and my mom interprets it. That’s their gift … I wasn’t ever able to say I was ‘lucky’ because my mother would rather us say that we were blessed, and she also didn’t like that ‘lucky’ sounded like ‘Lucifer.’ Deviled eggs were called ‘angeled’ eggs. I wasn’t allowed to eat Lucky Charms, but I think that was the sugar. I think my mom lied to me about that one.”

“It’s taking up way more time than my tour. It’s so much pressure. Her wedding is probably going to be the best wedding I’ve ever been to and now I have to match the bachelorette party to that … I could have balloons and Disney characters there and she’ll still make it wild. That’s just Katy Perry. There’s no way around that with her.”

“I was 25, 30 feet away from him and I threw the bottle straight at him—hit him smack dab on the head. Can you imagine the horrible feeling he had, when he was used to getting everything he wanted? I was like, ‘You’ve met your match, motherf**ker.’ … [Russell] used to basically be a professional prostitute—now he’s not. So he’s an extremist which can be both good and bad. I always needed someone stronger than me. And I am, like, a f**king strong elephant of a women. I say that hopefully in the humblest way I can.”

Last time I checked, having blue hair was a sure indication that you’ve passed the prime moments in your life and have officially hit old age. However, pop stars and designers are looking to change those preconceived notions, and now, with their approval, blue hair is all the rage. Marc Jacobs started it off a few years ago, as he dyed his dark hair a hue of electric blue; then Katy Perry took the stage to perform “California Gurls” at the MTV Movie Awards in a vivid blue wig. To round out the trend, Juliette Lewis appeared during a performance in London with a few blue highlights, perfectly matching her Ray-Bans. And, of course, our own Kate has been rocking a rad blue streak in her hair for years. So, what do you say — would you go blue? [Telegraph] Keep reading »
