RIP, marriage: Russell Brand and Katy Perry are dunzo.
Russell Brand filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing “irreconciable differences,” and released the following statement: “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
The couple married in October 2010, but rumors of a rocky, argument-fueled relationship have long dogged them. They raised eyebrows by spending Christmas this year apart: Russell in England with his friends, Katy in Hawaii with her friends. Both were photographed without wedding rings.
I’m sorry to see these two split … but I’m eager to see what the world looks like with both Rihanna and Katy Perry single and on the prowl! [TMZ] Keep reading »
So. I’m currently considering a very, very, very last minute New Year’s trip to somewhere hot. It is barely winter and I am already suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. And there have been signs that I am meant to go out of town and get a tan in the very near future. For example… Keep reading »
Katy Perry, dare I say it, is rocking a rather subtle looking new ‘do. The pop star has bleached away most of the hot pink hair she’s been wearing for the last few months in favor of a white blonde bob with a powder pink hue. I think the look is totally sleek and sophisticated, but still very her. I like! What say you? (Oh, and despite the rumors, it seems that her and hubby Russell Brand are doing a-okay. Glad to hear/see it!)
Contrary to rumors, Katy Perry and Russell Brand don’t appear to be getting divorced, at least if you believe the old adage, “The couple that gets inked together, stays together.” (What? People don’t say that?) Katy and Russell recently stopped by a tattoo parlor in LA and got new tattoos — she got a peppermint inked on her foot, while Russell got the badge for his favorite soccer (excuse me, football) team. Their tattoo artist also braved going under the gun at Katy’s hand, letting her ink his calf with the same peppermint. I thought it was illegal for people without a license to tattoo? Eh, whatever, she seems to have done a decent job. Check out a bunch more photos over at TMZ.
If there’s one place for a celebrity lady to step up her game, it’s on the red carpet. Whenever it’s rolled out, famous faces come out of the woodwork (do they exist when they’re not making public appearances? Important life questions) to show off what they’ve got. Classic, bizarre, avant garde — as we’ve seen, it’s all fair in
love dresses and war. But sometimes, even those who make a million a movie step out of line (and that is a fine line indeed!) and come off looking, well, cheap.
This weekend, America’s most renowned artists … okay, who am I kidding? This weekend, a few of America’s most palatable pop stars, like Selena Gomez and Katy Perry, flew ‘cross the pond to meet up with their Euro brethren at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Lady Gaga shoved her crotch at the crowd, Adam Lambert stood in for my beloved Freddie Mercury during Queen’s performance (I am deeply unhappy about this), and a whole mess of people dressed like fools. There were some sartorial standouts too — click through this slideshow to see the good, the bad, and the WTF on the MTV EMAs red carpet!
Damn you, Katy Perry! You’re dressed like a candy cane and standing between two ladies who look like lifesize anime characters and still your cover of Adele’s heartbreaking “Someone Like You” brought tears to my eyes. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
