Katy Perry In Convent Bidding War With Two Nuns

I’m not really sure what’s up with Katy Perry. You know, like, in a general sense. She’s still on her Prismatic World Tour, which won’t wrap up until October, and then I guess anything’s possible. Like, perhaps, her owning a convent – if she doesn’t lose out to the two nuns she’s currently locked in a bidding war with as we speak! You see, Katy’s trying to get her paws on Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary convent in L.A.’s Loz Feliz neighbourhood, and the nuns aren’t really feeling it. 

According to documents obtained by Us Weekly, two of the five nuns, Sister Rita Callanan and Sister Catherine Rose, argue that the villa-style hilltop convent, which offers views of downtown L.A. and the San Gabriel Mountains, is legally theirs to sell. Sister Rita and Sister Catherine sold the property to restaurateur Dana Hollister for $15.5 million — an issue since Archbishop Jose Gomez is claiming that the property is his to sell.

Gomez, for his part, has been busy negotiating the sale of the property to Perry, who, according to the L.A. Times, is willing to shell out $14.5 million in cash to make the property her home.

The songstress even visited with the nuns in an attempt to seal the deal. However, Sister Rita wasn’t a fan.

“Well, I found Katy Perry and I found her videos and…if it’s all right to say, I wasn’t happy with any of it,” Sister Rita told the paper of her quick Internet search. “We have given many years to this archdiocese and we have served them well,” she added. “For the archdiocese to…put us under a bus and run over us, I’m sorry, it was just too much for me.”

According to the documents, Gomez has sued Hollister with the intent to have her purchase of the property voided. Perry has been granted a court order to visit the property, which she recently did with her architect.

I mean, why does she even want a convent? To turn it into a luxury house? I mean, whatever, I guess… I can see why the nuns don’t want Perry taking the property, but I suppose times change and rich people tend to get what they want in the end…

Katy Perry Unveils New Moschino Ads

katy perry

Katy Perry‘s been pretty busy, touring the world, going to Disneyland, visiting Auschwitz… but she’s still found time to model for the new Moschino campaign, and I have to say, I’m SO not feeling the short hair. Thankfully, it’s just a wig, but why is she insisting on wearing it so much lately?!

Moschino is headed up by Jeremy Scott, one of Katy’s longtime pals, and she’s walked the runway for them before, so it only makes sense for her to do this campaign.

What do you think?

Katy Perry Doesn’t Actually Have A Taylor Swift Diss Song Called “1984″

katy perry taylor swift

We all know by now that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have some “bad blood” between them, hyuck hyuck. It’s all over some boring bullshit like Katy stealing some of Taylor’s crew for her tour or something, even though it seems they were working for Katy before or whatever blah blah. I’d just like to remind everyone before we go any further that these are two GROWN ASS WOMEN going on like this. Okay, now we can proceed.

So there were rumours floating around, as you probably remember, that Katy had enlisted John Mayer to write a revenge song about Taylor, and then all of a sudden there was an actual report that she’d actually registered a new song with publisher BMI called “1984″ – THE TAYLOR SWIFT DISS TRACK WAS UPON US. Except, of course, it’s not, because her reps have said in no way is there any truth to the story whatsoever. The song just doesn’t exist.

From Billboard:

“Katy Perry’s managers at Direct Management Group confirm that this story is completely false,” a rep for Perry at Universal tells Billboard. “Katy Perry was not involved in writing, singing, recording or registering this song.”

That shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Patrick Collier, one of the song’s alleged co-writers, posted an Instagram about the song with the caption “news to me.” That Instagram post has since been deleted.

For their part, BMI simply confirmed that the “1984″ song was registered back in September by BMG Platinum Songs. The song is still on BMI’s site with Katy Perry listed under the “Artists” tag.

So… it does exist and Katy’s lying? Who knows, but I wish these two would grow up and move on. It’s getting more than a little pathetic.

Katy Perry Enlists John Mayer To Seek Revenge Against Taylor Swift

We all know that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have had some seriously “bad blood” for a while now (see what I did there?) but it seems Katy might be ready to kick their feud up another notch by enlisting boyfriend John Mayer – who just so happens to be Taylor’s ex – in her revenge plot.

From Hollywood Life:

“Katy thinks revenge is a dish best served cold. She’s even more determined to show people what she calls ‘the real Taylor’, she’s writing some big, anthemic-type songs that’ll feature dirt on Taylor that John’s told her from when they used to date,” a friend of Katy’s told HEAT.

Wow, this feud is getting pretty intense! Is it wrong of us to say we’re slightly excited to hear this revenge song? What kind of dirt does John have on Taylor?! We need to know!

As for Katy’s absence at the Billboards, her friend said “John convinced her it was a bad idea. Katy realized she couldn’t stand the idea of the cameras being on her face as she had to watch Taylor win every award with all her friends applauding her.”

I’m going to go ahead and call BS on this story, if only because I’d hate to think that a 31-year-old woman has nothing better to do than enlist her boyfriend to try to get back at her ex-friend via song. I mean, I know Taylor wrote ‘Bad Blood’, but I know homegirl is immature. It just needs to end now. Move on, ladies. (Then again, I would SO listen to it. You know it’d be a hit!)

Katy Perry & John Mayer Go On Disneyland Date

So, Katy Perry and John Mayer got back together a while ago, for some unknown reason, and it seems like things have been going well. I suppose I’m not all that surprised, since I have ~inside info~ that they only broke up the first time because Katy was working too much (i.e. going on tour) and John basically just wanted to chill in LA so they took a break. Anyhow, they recently went to Disney World, and as you can see in the photo above, they look absolutely thrilled about it.

They took the trip to Disneyland over Memorial Day weekend and apparently looked all super romantic while they were there. But here’s the real question I have for all you LA people: Do you guys just go to Disneyland nonstop just because it’s there, and what the hell? Because seriously, everyone I know who lives out there is CONSTANTLY going, like, with the regularity I go to the greenmarket.

Katy Perry Hasn’t Talked To Russell Brand Since He Texted Asking For A Divorce

katy perry russell brand

It was always pretty obvious that Katy Perry‘s split from Russell Brand wasn’t all that friendly, and it was also obvious that Russell asked for a divorce in a pretty messed up way: via a text message. Katy sang about it in her song ‘Ghost’ on the Prism album and has mentioned it once or twice in interviews before. And while a couple of years have passed out and both have moved on to new relationships, Katy and Russell are still pretty frosty.

From The Daily Telegraph:

CK: Have you spoken to Brand at all since your divorce?

KP: He hasn’t spoken to me since he texted me saying he was filing for divorce. I don’t want to talk about him — my songs will say what I need to say.

CK: You seem to have rebounded very strongly from heartbreak over the last several years. Are you stronger than ever?

KP: I’m one of those people that likes to be fearless. We bungee-jumped in New Zealand on one tour. We go to water-parks and do things like that because I have a little fearless invincibility streak in me. I don’t like to live in fear because that traps you and your voices. Fear is a control tactic in the world that is negative and depressing and I don’t want to be associated with it.

I mean, I don’t feel like that’s particularly rare. How many couples who divorce after a short time and that have no children together actually go on to become buddies? This relationship is old news, so I’m sure Katy would appreciate if people would stop asking her about it just as much as we’d prefer not to read about it.

Katy Perry Is Looking Forward To Her Summer Vacation

katy perry

Katy Perry is JUST finishing up her Prismatic World Tour for the summer and is ready for a break. She started the tour all the way back in May 2014 and it won’t actually end until the end of October, so no one can say homegirl doesn’t work hard – 150 concerts in a year and a half is INTENSE, so good for her.

In any case, since Katy has June, July and part of August to regroup and relax, there are certain things she wants to accomplish, like hanging out with women so they can talk about their dreams and going to farmers markets.

From OK! Mag (via ONTD):

Katy prefers to date comedians: “My perfect date is really so simple – I like connection, good conversation and jokes. I love jokes.”

On if she’s good at switching off from work mode: “No – put me on a desert island with no phone and I’ll already probably have a phone hidden in some box.” 

What she’s looking forward to during her summer off: “This summer, I want to have genuine, normal, experiences, like going to the famers’ market and picking fruit. This is a fantastic life I live, but you don’t get to get your own coffee any more. But please! Don’t feel sorry for me!” 

On how she likes to spend her free time: “I love girls. I have an incredible, strong group of girls. We do this thing called ‘women’s meetings’ where we talk about our dreams and what we’re grateful for and we put flowers in our hair and drink tea. Stuff like that. I want to treat women like I would treat myself. We have to stick together.”

I’d just like to remind everyone that this is a 31-year-old woman whose priorities include putting flowers in her hair and talking about dreams. I mean, look, you’re never too old to embrace your inner child, I guess, but does it need to be done so literally?

When it comes to the farmers’ market and coffee, though, we’re definitely on the same page. Just make sure it’s iced.
