Katy Perry’s Divorce From Russell Brand Is A Little “Tchotchke” Now

katy perry

Katy Perry and Russell Brand have been divorced for about a year now, but reporters are still acting like that shit happened last week and pussyfooting around questions that might mean she has to talk about him. On one hand, way to go for the sensitivity, media? But on the other: what? Why not keep your nose out where it actually matters?

In any case, Katy doesn’t really care all that much about discussing her split from Russ, and took it on the chin when asked at the ASCAP “I Create Music” Expo about her bonus tracks from Teenage Dream – ‘Wide Awake’ and ‘Part of Me’ – which seemingly applied to their marriage (even though any Katy fan knows that they were B-Sides from 2010 when the album originally came out, but whatever).

From The Hollywood Reporter:

“It’s a very tiny elephant. … It’s like a little Tchotchke now.” That would be the elephant in the room: her divorce from Russell Brand. “The Big D — you can say it,” Perry downplayed when asked about the additions to the deluxe edition of Teenage Dream, “Wide Awake” and “Part of Me.” Clearly, she’s over it.

Well, good for her, I guess? On the music front, she’s making a new record and hopefully it’ll be as good as the last.

“What a schizophrenic record this next record’s gonna be…” Among the songwriters that Perry has been working with “a lot” is Sia. “She makes me laugh more than any human,” said Perry. “I can’t do vocals because I fry my voice from laughing.” Perry revealed that one such song is called “Double Rainbow.” When the title elicited laughs from the audience, Perry cracked: “Sounds insincere, but wait for it, OK?”

Double Rainbow? Uh… yes, please!

Hairy Situation Of The Day: Katy Perry Might Sue ghd For $2 Million

katy perry ghd

Katy Perry was named the global ambassador for ghd – the haircare company that makes expensive, bomb ass straighteners (I have one and love it!) – a couple of years back and has appeared in several ad campaigns for the company like the one above for their European consumers. Katy’s clothing choices might not be so great, but her hair always looks nice (thanks, extensions!) so I can see why they signed a deal with her.

However, things have gone awry and Katy is close to suing ghd for $2 million, claiming that they agreed to extend her contract and are now reneging on the deal – something ghd is calling bullshit on.

From TMZ:

According to the suit … Perry had a $4.5 million written contract to promote “ghd” (stands for “good hair day”) products for two years starting in 2011. Her agent claims Katy’s owed an additional $2 mil based on an oral agreement to extend her contract.

But in the docs … the company behind “ghd”, Jemella Group, insists there was never an oral agreement — and they decided not to renew Perry’s deal because market research shows Europeans just aren’t that into her anymore.

Jemella says Perry’s agent has been threatening to sue for the $2 mil … so it struck first, asking the court to block team Perry from filing a lawsuit.

Katy’s rep tells TMZ, “Jemella’s attempt to embarrass Ms. Perry by including defamatory statements about her in a public filing is shameful.” The rep says they plan to sue over the money Katy’s owed if Jemella doesn’t pay up.

Katy tells us, “They’re backing out of the deal because of an ownership change, and just throwing shade to hide their bad faith.”

Damn, way to play her, ghd. I don’t think it’s that Europeans don’t really like her any more, I think it’s that the Teenage Dream wave has been ridden from here to eternity she’s been taking a break. As soon as she releases new music, her popularity will go back up. It doesn’t take rocket science, people.

Not sure who to believe on this one, but time will tell… In the meantime, more of Katy’s ghd shots are below. That ’20s-era flapper one gets a side eye, though.

 

Katy Perry Definitely Didn’t Get Back With “Gross” Russell Brand, Despite What Perez Hilton Says

Perez Hilton is a champion shit spewer who some celebrities apparently really like and consider a friend for reasons I can’t fathom. Well, cross Katy Perry‘s name off that list, because she was none too pleased when he posted a story on his site earlier this week claiming that she had reunited with ex-husband Russell Brand and that they’d been spotted kissing.

What say you to that, Katy?


Ah, yes. Perez, of course, relented soon after, being the ass kisser he is, and removed the entry, replacing it with an apology about how his “sources” were wrong. And by sources, he obviously means whatever 18-year-old LA transplant he hired as an intern came up with that day.

Oh no! Our sources were 100% wrong!

A source told us today that they saw Katy Perry and her ex-husband Russell Brand making out, but we have confirmation now it simply wasn’t true!

We’re so sorry for jumping the gun on this one, KatyCat and Russ!

We were just so excited to imagine two of our favorites were rekindling an old flame, we must’ve been blinded by our love for you guys as a couple!!

Oh, f-ck off.

Nearly Half Of Justin Bieber’s Twitter Followers Are Fake

Social networking is a great tool to expand your brand and keep in touch with your fans when you’re a big time celeb (or want to be one), so it’s no surprise that mostly everyone in showbiz under the age of 30 is all over Twitter, sharing tidbits about their everyday lives, getting into feuds with fellow artists and/or hateful fans and quite often making us cringe.

When Justin Bieber was named the most followed person on Twitter last year, some people wondered how that could be. Well, I’ll tell you how: nearly half of his followers are from fake accounts. Ta da! Fake accounts are deemed such when they are following fewer than 50 people, have 1 or fewer followers and who have never tweeted. Justin’s fake count clocks in at an impressive 45% – impressively sad, that is.

Check out this infographic (I love infographics!):

Oh, snap! Even Katy Perry and Lady GaGa are doing better than the Biebs. No surprise, of course – you’d have to be a robot (or 12) to think Justin has anything worthwhile to say. He’s the worst. So, what do you say? Do you follow Justin? Which stars DO you follow? Do any of them actually have anything interesting to say?

Katy Perry Goes To Madagascar To Get Over John Mayer

While John Mayer goes on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to wax poetic about the difficulty of romantic relationships after break-ups, Katy Perry apparently goes to Madagascar with UNICEF in order to draw attention to the plight of children in the company. While there, she visited a child protection facility and also participated in the promotion of positive hygiene and sanitation through hand washing. Sounds… fun? But definitely important, so good for her.

Here’s what Katy had to say about the experience:

“In less than one week here in Madagascar, I went from crowded city slums to the most remote villages, and my eyes were widely opened by the incredible need for a healthy life – nutrition, sanitation, and protection against rape and abuse – which UNICEF are stepping in to help provide.

“I am grateful to UNICEF for giving me the opportunity to see first-hand how their programs make a real difference in children’s lives. Support for UNICEF is saving children, I am a witness to it.”

Say what you will about Katy Perry (so long as it’s positive – I love her!), but it’s nice to see someone who’d rather work through her shit by going to see those less fortunate and helping where possible rather than doing the talkshow circuit and basically getting off on her own arrogance – and yes, I’m looking at you, John.

John Mayer Still, Like, Totally Loves Katy Perry

John Mayer is the worst ever of anything. Katy Perry deserves better. ANYONE deserves better. They broke up but apparently Mr. Mayer still loves her, or whatever.

According to E Online,

“John still very much loves her and has feelings for her,” a well-placed source exclusively tells E! News. “It was just going to be too much with what was on his plate.”

Yeah, okay, sure.

Rumor also has it that Ms. Perry would consider getting back together with him if he got his shit back together with himself.

NO. THIS NEEDS TO END. NOW. FOREVER.

If we all ignore John Mayer, maybe he’ll go away. I don’t even care about his music; I’m coming at this from a human standpoint. We don’t need John Mayer fucking with anyone anymore.

Am I totally off on this?

John Mayer Confirms What We Know But Didn’t Care About: He Broke Up With Katy Perry

katy perry john mayer

John Mayer doesn’t really know the meaning of the word “dignity”, so he had no problem navel-gazing about relationships on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week (while simultaneously yammering on about what a private and personal thing it all is, naturally). The long and short of it is this, though: he’s no longer with Katy Perry and is continuing his “journey” to douchebagdom all by his lonesome.

“It was a very private relationship going in. It was a private relationship during, and it’s a private relationship still.”

“I can understand asking the question [about our split] based on some previous answers I have given, but I have finally learned how to put the wall between one thing and the other.

“I’ve been much happier since then. I’m on the same journey as everyone else. Coupling is a tricky thing. It’s a tricky thing. I want everyone to be happy.”

Aw, well isn’t that sweet – John just wants everyone to be happy! He should be pleased to know that Katy herself is so happy, she’s sworn off men altogether after dating him. This dude is so egotistical that he thinks people are asking him about the split because of things he himself as said, rather than, you know, because there are reports all over the media that they’ve split. Ah, the ego. It’s a wonderful thing, isn’t it?
