“I’m tired of being famous already! But I’m not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do. It’s quite a delicate creature— it’s a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you. I still want to be as approachable and relatable as possible—when I meet fans and they’re crying, I’ll say, ‘Calm down, there’s nothing to cry about. I’m not going to bite you or attack you or grant you three wishes. Let’s just hang out and have a good time.’”
– Katy Perry answers a question from Teen Vogue about whether or not she’ll ever get tired of being uber famous. Also, despite her amazing technicolor “I Dream Of Jeannie” meets My Little Pony hairdo, she is unable to grant you three wishes at this time. I’m not a huge fan of Katy, but after seeing the surprisingly touching trailer for her upcoming documentary and reading some recent interviews, I must say I’m impressed with her honesty. [Teen Vogue]
Katy Perry is still going through her blue period. The “Teenage Dream” pop star shared a while back that the inspiration for her blue hair was half Anna Wintour and half Kate Winslet in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” However it seems even more clear what Perry was going for with the gorgeous blue and purple ponytail she rocked at the 25th annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards in Los Angeles this past weekend.

Naomi Wolf, a prominent feminist activist, is calling for a boycott of Katy Perry’s entire pop music oeuvre on account of the singer’s music video for her song “Part Of Me.” In the video, Katy dumps a boyfriend and then joins the Marines, where she endures tough training while singing about how she’s so strong and “you’re never gonna break my soul.” On her Facebook page, Naomi Wolf wrote that the video is “a total piece of propaganda for the Marines,” continuing:
I really want to find out if she was paid by them for making it. It is truly shameful … I would suggest a boycott of this singer whom I really liked — if you are as offended at this glorification of violence as I am. Keep reading »
In the past week, both Katy Perry and Kate Upton have rocked these new Christian Louboutin pumps, which have the word ‘sex’ written across the toe in Swarovski crystals. You know, because they’re subtle. Keep reading »
Thanks to a recent post on gossip blog Celebzter, “Page Six” reports that Katy Perry and male model Baptiste Giabiconi are dating. Fate masquerading as a savvy PR assistant placed them next to each other at this season’s Chanel show, where they presumably found enough time away from staring at the pretty clothes (and their own reflections in the set’s reflective crystal stalagmites) to fall truly, madly, deeply in love. They held hands at a post-show dinner, and Baptiste reportedly bought her some flowers — though you’d think as a longtime Chanel muse that he could have sprung for some shoes or something. They were all ready for a “romantic date” too, presumably chaperoned by Karl himself, but then thePlace Vendôme caught on fire. What bad luck! Read more…
