Katy Perry made it very clear that she’s moved on from her candyland technicolor dream world of her “Teenage Dream” album/tour/persona. In her latest video, a teaser for her upcoming single, she’s going somewhere darker. Literally. In the promo for her single “Roar” (out August 12), Ms. Perry, in dark lipstick and surrounded by total darkness, holds up her signature blue wig and sets it on fire. The whole thing is very The Craft, but also reminds me of Lana Del Rey‘s look and feel.
Could this next era in Katy’s career be a little less sunshine and rainbows and a lot more drama and Del Rey? Let’s just hope they don’t start a feud.

Though it seemed pretty obvious that there was nothing going on between Rob Pattinson and Katy Perry, we can all rest easy now as Katy confirmed that she and Rob aren’t lovers, but more like gross buddies. As Ms. Perry told ELLE UK via Hollywood Life:
He’s my bud, I’m his big sister. We just hang out. [...] OK, so here’s the proof there was nothing was ever going on with me and Robert Pattinson. I fart in front of him. Properly fart. And I never fart in front of a man I am dating. That’s a rule.
Yeah, solid “proof.” Thanks for that, Katy. She also admits that she finds the actor attractive, but has never acted on it. She told him,
One of the things I’m most proud of is not sleeping with you, Robert.
Uhhh I get what she means but this one she probably should have kept to herself.
As for her current love life, Perry appears to be not farting in front of John Mayer, which is a terrible choice.

Or ‘Roar’. We’re all excited for Katy Perry‘s new music, right? And no, I’m not being sarcastic. Teenage Dream was an AMAZING album and I’m really excited to see what she’s going to come up with next, because that was a hard one to top. Of course her new single would be called ‘Roar’ or ‘Rawr’ – it just seems to fit. Of course, that might not actually be the case, but that’s the story going around. Katy’s longtime producer Dr. Luke also added to the “suspense” by tweeting the following:
and the new song starts with an "R" ….

Right, so all we really know so far is that her single starts with an R, her album is called Prism and you should take a picture of the trucks with her promo on them. That’s not very much. Here are some other R-titles that her single could be:
- Rrrrrrr… Maybe Not
- Russell Sux
I think I’m really onto something here.

Katy Perry is promoting her upcoming album with a giant-ass shiny gold bus that says “KATY PERRY – PRISM – 10/22/13″ that’s driving around the country. First stop, Los Angeles.
Ms. Perry tweeted,
Find the #PRISM semi, take a picture and I’ll RT you. Don’t worry, Los Angeles is just the first stop on the map.
Friend Adam Lambert tweeted his own pic:
But my favorite is this one by “@A_Little_Spark”:
“RT for effort,” Perry re-tweeted back.

Katy Perry posed for Vogue, and also said a lot of mysterious stuff about Russell Brand and their divorce, but that’s a different story (and here it is). She told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show how she prepped to be a Vogue cover girl. Here’s a little bit of what she did to get read (via Huffington Post):
I did a lot of my own prepping. I kind of went on a cleanse… I did a lot of stuff like vitamins and supplements, I changed my coffee to green tea, I didn’t drink any alcohol for three months. So I was really in the zone and just really wanted to be glowing for that cover.
I think it’s kind of funny that she said she “did” vitamins, as opposed to “taking” them — yeah, vitamins, that’s the hard stuff, Katy! Nothing about this sounds like anything crazy, certainly nothing on an Aniston or Paltrow level, but not drinking for 3 months to do a magazine shoot sounds f-cking insane to me. Then again, not drinking for a week also sounds insane to me. I mean, it wouldn’t if I had a photoshoot the next week, but if it wasn’t for the next 3 months…they photoshop everything to hell anyway!

John Mayer and Katy Perry are a couple again. He even dedicated a song (“A Face To Call Home”) to her at once of his concerts, telling the crowd, “Katy [is] my face to call home.” (Huffington Post.) That’s sweet. Try not to f-ck it up this time.
Mr. Mayer and Ms. Perry were hanging out in a guitar store when they met some teenage fans. Nice celebs would pose for a photo or give an autograph, but John Mayer went even further. From The Daily News:
Julie Fermin, 16, happened to be in the SoHo store at the same time as the famous couple and had her eye on an expensive guitar she could not afford. Mayer then stepped in and purchased the instrument for her as a gift.
That was really, really nice of him. No sarcasm.
So congratulations, John Mayer. For a few hours in July of 2013, you were not a total douche.
