Katy Perry has worn her share of skimpy outfits over the years, but she’s out of that phase now and wants to concentrate on her music instead of having everyone else focus on her body. That’s fair enough, but there are other artists her age that are still stripping down. It’s not so much that she’s “too old” as it is that it’s just unnecessary, you know?
From Capital FM (via DS):
“I’m just getting a little older and realized I can’t pull that off any more. If I had Rihanna’s body I would wear everything Rihanna wears. She looks fabulous in all of it.”
She added: “I want to keep the attention on my music. I have confidence in my songs, that’s where I need most of the focus.”
I’m into that – and judging by the sound of the new songs so far, that’s just fine by me! I’ve said it a million times but it warrants saying again: I’m still waiting for Prism to leak, man. Someone put that shit online!
Also… if she had Rihanna’s body? Uh, Katy Perry has a great body. What is going on here?

I love Katy Perry – you all know this by now. I was pretty excited to hear she was closing out the iTunes Festival on Monday night, so I tuned in looking forward to seeing her live after several years’ hiatus. However, she seemed… not herself throughout the show and either slightly distracted or maybe just sad. Like, a deeper, “my sex addict ex-husband ruined my life” kind of sadness. She only stayed on stage for 45 minutes (most shows averaged between 75 – 90 mins) and it seems like she wished it was 0 minutes. What’s going on, boo? :(
One of the highlights of the set was Katy’s premiere of a ballad from Prism called ‘By The Grace of God’, a really sad number about how she felt like she wasn’t good enough and everything was her fault and oh man, it’s pretty heartbreaking. It’s a pretty good track – she co-wrote it with Greg Wells – and a definite winner for her, just really sad.

Katy Perry is gearing up for the release of her new album, Prism, and has been teasing fans by releasing tracks here and there. After ‘Roar’ (which is the single, so it doesn’t count), there was ‘Dark Horse’ and now we’ve got ‘Walking On Air’, an Ibiza-worthy dance track that’s actually really catchy and a lot of fun, despite talk of going “deeper and harder than ever before”, which I suppose still counts as a lot of fun to some people.
I’m pretty intrigued by what Prism will offer – it seems slightly less cohesive than Teenage Dream, but in a good way, and everything I’ve heard from the album so far, I really like. I wish this motherfucker would hurry up and leak!
What do we think of ‘Walking On Air’?

Courtney Stodden is back from her Big Brother UK stint. Hooray! I know we’re all so happy!
We’re coming off of Emmy’s week, where celebs have already worn their best stuff and are now getting back to their regular celeb lives. Let’s take a look at the best, worst, and WTF of the week. Because sometimes you just want to look at photos of celebs and admire what they’re wearing or say shit about them.
This time I’m asking YOU: which look do you think is the best, worst, and most WTF?
Just had to show you Courtney’s full look. You’re welcome. Did she get more surgery while she was there?

Katy Perry did a big interview with Billboard magazine and revealed a lot not just about her new upcoming album, Prism, but her personal life and professional aspirations. Particularly surprising is that Ms. Perry sees herself as a Joni Mitchell type. From Billboard:
I love Madonna to death, but she’s never going to give me that damn baton. I’ll probably turn into more of a Joni Mitchell. As I inch towards my 30s, I think my fourth record will be more of an acoustic guitar album. That’s where I started when I was first discovered by Glen Ballard and got my first record deal. We’ll see — I can’t get ahead of myself.
It’s true that Perry started as a very different artist than the pop superstar she’s become, but I’m still raising eyebrows. How do you go from California Gurls pop princess to mellowed out acoustic singer/songwriter chick? But if the label and management trusts her and lets her, I think she can do it.
She also gushed about her boyfriend, John Mayer.
He literally is a genius, as is evident from his songwriting. I always tell him, ‘Darling, you know I’m going to have to give your mind to science after you’ve passed, because we’re going to have to understand how all these sparks work.’ We’ll be in bed, and he’ll be doing the crossword puzzle. Every night, he tries to finish it in under 10 minutes. When he puts his mind to something, he really gets it done very well. I always ask for his help.

Katy Perry got what I think is one of the highest honors ever when a wax version of herself was unveiled at Madame Tussaud’s in NYC. But is that Katy Perry or is that a Kathy Griffin cast-off? Doesn’t it look more like Kathy Griffin?
The problem with wax figures is that they photograph poorly. I bet this looks much better in person. The best way to take photos of wax figures is without a camera flash. The flash blows them out and makes them look particularly waxy and fake. Yes, I have a lot of experience photographing wax figures, because I like to get drunk and go to wax museums.
More pix below. The girls posing with her are not made of wax.
