Katy Perry Broke Another Record

Katy+Perry

Katy Perry broke another record — she’s got herself 50 million followers on Twitter, ousting Justin Bieber as the most followed artist. You go, Katy! She now stands tall on Twitter above The Beebs and The Gags. Curious about other Twitter music superstars? From Billboard:

Other high­-ranking artists on Twitter include Britney Spears at 35 million, Rihanna at 34 million and Justin Timberlake at a little more than 30 million in total. (Oh, and the President of the United States, of course, but despite his 41 million followers, we won’t rank him until he releases an album.)

In fact, music remains the most-discussed topic on all of Twitter, with more than 1 billion tweets sent about music in 2013.

Do YOU follow Katy Perry on twitter? Who are some big name artist you follow? Everybody’s got at least one. I follow Katy, even though I’m still eye-rolling a bit after her big boob comment. But I can’t help it, I love her.

Katy Perry Prayed for Big Boobs

katy perry 2

Katy Perry is hot – I don’t think anyone would really deny that, regardless of how they feel about her music (though I’m sure one of you will prove me wrong here). I’m a big fan – I love her music and I think she’s adorable and totally someone you’d want to be best friends with. I also think she’s pretty sexy, and her new shoot with GQ kinda proves my point.

In her cover story for the magazine, which is pretty geared towards men but has an untapped market in the lesbian audience, I’d say, Katy talks about how she used to wish for big boobs when she was younger – and by golly, she got them!

“I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, ‘God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can’t see my feet when I’m lying down?’

“God answered my prayers. I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually.”

LOL… oh, Katy. I don’t know that that’s something I’d reveal in a magazine interview (or any interview, really), but that’s sorta what I love about her – she doesn’t mind being goofy or seeming dorky – kinda like Jennifer Lawrence, but far less in-your-face.

She also got a little weird as she discussed her belief in aliens and astrology and… President Obama?

“I see everything through a spiritual lens. I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: ‘How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form?’ I mean, if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I’m going to ask him that question. It just hasn’t been appropriate yet.

“I might have won Wisconsin for him. Actually, I didn’t do too much, but he called on me a couple of times. Which was very nice.”

Okay, we’ll just leave that one alone and concentrate on the hotness…

Madonna and Katy Perry Are Doing an “Art Project” Together

madonna katy perry

Apparently there’s some competition going on called Art for Freedom in which the artist who manages to impress Madonna and Katy Perry the most will win $10,000 – not for themselves, but for a non-profit organization of their choice. If that sounds a little wacky to you – the pairing, the concept, any of it – then you’re not alone. While most professional artists are aiming to enter competitions to earn money for themselves, to keep a roof over their head while they continue trying to make art for a living, this one is looking for anyone who can pick up a pencil and draw or write a poem or anything else, regardless of experience. Also, the focus is on human rights. And your judges are Madonna and Katy Perry. Let that last part sink in.

Madonna chose Katy to “guest curate” the competition, which is part of the ‘Material Girl’ singer’s Freedom Project organization. Here’s the full scoop from Billboard:

Madonna has tapped Katy Perry as guest curator for Art for Freedom, her online public art project that encourages artists to submit videos, music, poetry and photographs to express their take on freedom.

Over the course of this month, Perry will work with Madonna to select an artist “whose creative expression demonstrates a unique view of the fight for human rights,” according to a press release.

“I am so fortunate to have the freedom to express myself through music,” said Katy Perry. “Now I’m calling all of my incredibly creative KatyCats to use their talent to show Madonna and me how they express their freedom. I believe that 2014 can be a year of great social change. Together we can all stand up for Human Rights. Join the conversation, and let your art be your voice.”

LOLLLL. I love the idea of a KatyCat winning this competition. You know I love Katy Perry, but I wouldn’t say the fans who stan for her are human rights activists with brilliant artistic ability, to be honest. That’s not nice of me to say, I know, and maybe I’ll be proven wrong when this whole thing is over. This isn’t a Katy Perry competition, it’s an art competition about human rights with a prize to be given to a non-profit. Let’s widen the scope, here, girl.

I’m interested in the reasons behind Madonna picking Katy to run this. I’m not being funny at all, I think Katy is fantastic, I just would imagine she’d pick an art critic or someone on the board of the Getty museum or something, you know?

In any case, I’d much rather Madonna be spending her time on projects like this than putting on a thong for Terry Richardson. I’ll take it.

Stevie Nicks Is Down with the Kids

I love Stevie Nicks – she’s a legend, a genius and a total weirdo. She also seems to be in a phase of her life where she’s trying to stay hip with the kids. She’s officiating pop weddings, speaking out on celebrity death and now she’s even dedicating songs to our favourite lovebirds, John Mayer and Katy Perry.

John and Katy went to a Fleetwood Mac concert on Sunday night in Las Vegas, where they got a special surprise: Stevie dedicated the band’s performance of ‘Landslide’ to them. Aw, isn’t that sweet? Katy has said before that she and Stevie are “buds”, and I guess that’s really the case. Still, she was so overcome with feeling that John had to hit up her Twitter account so share the news:


I do think it’s a big weird that Stevie Nicks dedicated ‘Landslide’ to them – or any song, for that matter – but maybe there’s some secret significance or some big story with them and that song that Stevie knows about and we don’t. I’m just waiting out this whole John/Katy thing. When will it be over?
