6Katy Perry Severs Rihanna Friendship

Katy Perry, despite what most people think, is a smart and thoughtful woman. Instead of hopping on the Welcome Back Chris Brown Express, she’s allegedly letting friends know that she doesn’t approve of Rihanna dating Chris Brown. The lovely Rihanna and the lovely Ms. Perry became friends after sitting together at last year’s Grammy Awards. Look, let’s make something clear: Katy Perry is not victim blaming. She’s not telling Rihanna not to date Chris Brown; she’s recognizing that this is a choice her friend is making and she’s stepping aside. On the other manicured hand, however, there were reports that Rihanna didn’t want to be Katy’s friend because of who Katy is dating, Mr. John Douche-Of-The-Universe-Now-And-Forever Mayer. When asked about it, Rihanna told Rolling Stone,

Katy Perry can date anyone she wants.  Besides, who the f-ck am I to say anything?  I could never given relationship advice to anybody!

Oh my. Was Rihanna taking a dig at herself there?

All we know for sure is that Perry and Mayer sat nowhere near Rihanna and Brown and there was no interaction. We also know that Ms. Perry did not once compliment Chris Brown. And who would do that? Oh, right, someone like you.

9The 3 Best and 5 Worst Fashion Choices at the 2012 Grammys

If you haven’t heard by now, I can sum up the Grammys in just a few sentences for you: Adele won everything that she was nominated for; Lady Gaga won nothing, thankyouverymuch; Nicki Minaj is neither creative nor innovative and frankly, she kind of frightens me; Whitney Houston was honored, and it’s all still so, so sad; and apparently two years’ punishment is good enough for the Grammys to invite a violent bully Chris Brown a violent bully back to perform on their stage.

There were a lot of other cool things that happened, like Bruce Springsteen being kind of … I don’t know, hot; Paul McCartney making his guitar gently weep; and Dave Grohl’s infectious love of performance, but of course, there were bad things, too, like almost all of the fashion. Normally I’d do Best 5 and Worst 5, but guys, I had one hard-ass time finding 5 getups that weren’t totally awful. And rather than do Best 3 and Worst 15, I figured I’d try to balance it out a little bit better than that.

Here’s the 3 Best Fashion Picks of the Night:

#3 – Paris Hilton

If you can look past the fact that she looks more and more like Igor every day, and that she’s, well … Paris Hilton, then you can appreciate the fact that this is probably the best that she’s looked. Ever. She was classy, put-together, and not one speck of skank was showing. That in itself should land her the top spot on this list, but it is Paris Hilton, after all.

#2 – Katy Perry

Short of the blue hair, Katy Perry was looking pretty great last night. I don’t normally have a lot of good to say about girlfriend here, but there’s just something about that fluffy little number (the dress, not Katy) that I’m just enamored with.

#1 – Kathy Griffin

I know, I couldn’t believe it either. But she looks so good – the dress, her hair, her makeup: everything’s tasteful and appropriate and is actually FLATTERING, and that one word right there, guys, is not a word that I ever thought I’d associate with Kathy Griffin.

Who took the best?
