Katy Perry is hopping on the mermaid train? Err, tail? Just a few weeks after Lady Gaga unveiled her alter ego Yuki, the mermaid in a wheelchair, and was accused of ripping Bette Midler’s mermaid routine from 1980, Katy Perry is breaching the water and showing off her mermaid costuming for a new video. So, will Gaga accuse Katy of stealing the idea? Not directly. But Gaga’s creative director, Laurieann Gibson, did tweet, “Proud of my artist #1 in the world @Ladygaga her vision& passion even though they try to steal a tail there’s only 1 Mermaid, Swim On!!!”
So what do we think—is there enough room for two mermaids in the pop music sea? And another pic of Katy’s costume after the jump. Keep reading »
And the crazy winner this week is: Rihanna, who wore this almost-not-there-at-all getup to the Crop Over festival in her native Barbados. Following behind her, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry’s pink hair transition, Mischa Barton’s Sgt. Pepper ensemble, and Kate Bosworth’s nerdy white-on-white look. Check back next week for more strange fashions! Keep reading »
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 »
