Katy Perry releases ad for new fragrance, Royal Revolution

katy perry royal revolution

I know I said I wasn’t super fond of celebrity fragrances yesterday, but I forgot to mention that I really liked Katy Perry‘s Killer Queen. It doesn’t smell drugstore-y at all (which I guess is why higher-end retailers like Nordstrom agreed to sell it), it’s warm and spicy and lasts a long time. I’m into it – so I’m curious as to how good KP’s newest scent, Royal Revolution, is going to smell.

Royal Revolution is coming out later this summer, and according to her website, it’s an “irresistible floral fragrance [that] conquers at first breath with notes of pink freesia, mystical blackthorn, jasmine and vanilla orchid.” Hmm, sounds like a potential disaster, but I’ll give it a go.

Katy tends to be hit or miss when it comes to her perfume. I thought the Purr/Meow releases were just awful. We’ll see how this one goes. I will say, however, that while the bottle shape is pretty and creative and all that, it’s sort of idiotic – you can’t even stand the damn thing up because of it.

Katy Perry is in the political spirit, it seems

Katy Perry is about to take the Prismatic World Tour stateside, and her first stop is in Washington DC. That might explain why she met up with Hillary Clinton the other day and offered to write her 2016 campaign song, and why she’s now taking selfies with Vice-President Joe Biden and posing in front of famous DC monuments.

Ol’ Joe had the hot moves on him, as well, since he apparently made Katy call her grandma in front of him to thank her for giving Katy her beautiful blue eyes. Smooth, Biden! Real smooth!

Katy Perry offers to write Hillary Clinton’s campaign song

Katy Perry got to meet up with Hilary Clinton recently, where she did a little fangirling and apparently offered to write Hilary’s theme song during the 2016 presidential race (which Hillary may or may not be participating in). She’s currently promoting her new book, Hard Choices, and is doing an accompanying media tour, which is where this meet-up seemed to take place.

In any case, Katy posted the above photo online and Hillary replied. #Girlpower?


Uh, don’t I wish Hillary Clinton would use ‘Roar’ as her campaign song! That would be sort of amazing.

What the hell is going on with Katy Perry?

Katy Perry posted the above photo on her Instagram page on Thursday, leading plenty of people, including myself, to say, “HUH?” Y’all know I love KP, but I’m not fond of the desperate grasp for baby hair (sorry, white girls, it doesn’t come natural to you) and the bleached eyebrows thing has always escaped me. The nails are meh, the earrings look like hideous costume jewellery and the whole thing looks like she’s ripping off this UK artist called FKA Twigs (who’s actually really great and the look works for her):

But hey, Katy thinks she looks great, so live it up, I guess?

Katy Perry is wanted at London’s cat cafe

Apparently there’s a cat cafe called Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium in London, where you can go and have a brew while some cats walk around and rub themselves against your leg or whatever. The practice originated in Japan and is being copied everywhere now, it seems… and for good reason: they’re INCREDIBLY popular and apparently booked solid.

According to a report from The Sun, Katy Perry was desperate to get into Lady Dinah’s while she was here over the past month or two touring, but she was turned away and told there was no space for her on the guest list. Of course, that’s not actually true and Lady Dinah’s is actually desperate for Kitty Purry herself to pay the place a visit.

Owner Lauren Pears tells E! News, “We would love Katy Perry to come here. She’s a huge cat lover. And would be great to bring attention to the rescue cats we have. We never heard from her team so we definitely didn’t deny her coming here. We would love her to come here. Our door is always open to her.”

Well, there you have it. Lady Dinah’s awaits you, Katy. Frankly, I think I’d prefer a puppy cafe, but I think things would get a bit too boisterous and lots of cups of tea and coffee would get knocked over :(

Katy Perry uses crystals to get men into bed with her

Katy Perry is pretty hot, right? She’s down-to-earth, doesn’t mind making a total fool of herself… and she seems colossally unlucky in love, which may have something to do with her approach to attracting men in the first place. You see, Katy uses crystals – the perfectly calibrated combination of precious gems, of course – to draw the male species towards her, as she explained in a new interview with Cosmopolitan.

“I don’t stay single for long. I carry a lot of rose quartz, which attracts the male. Maybe I need to calm it down with the amethyst. I’m not like Professor Higgins with my sex life. I’m not super strict. For me, the most important thing about sex is connection.”

LOL, yes, definitely calm it down with the amethyst, girl, especially if you count that as what’s behind your taking up with people like Russell Brand and John Mayer. This whole thing is a load of bullshit, but Katy is my girl, so I’mma let her slide with that.

In the meantime, let’s all enjoy her recent vacation selfie:

Katy Perry will probably write some songs about John Mayer

Katy Perry and John Mayer‘s relationship ran its course earlier this year, and while Katy is currently touring Prism, the album of songs all about how sprung she was off John’s ~energy~ and ~aura~, turns out her next one might be all about where things went wrong. Not all that surprising, considering that’s what musicians do and all…

From Cosmopolitan:

“There’s no bad blood. But I’m sure there will be inspired songs.”

Well, that’s that, then? I mean, I’m sure John will write (or has already written) plenty of songs about Katy, so it’s pretty natural, even if the split really was amicable. It was still an experience in her life, so it makes sense to write about it. I guess no more ‘Birthday’ on the next album though, eh?

Oh, also, John really loves when his exes write songs about him, apparently. Here’s what he told TMZ on Monday (via MTV):

“I have super strength for gang-ups, I’m fine,” Mayer told the site when asked if he was bothered by the songs his former loves write about him. “That’s what you’re supposed to do, man, you’re supposed to write songs. You’re just not supposed to tell everybody you’re doing it.”

Out on a date acting as a third wheel with some friends, Mayer laughed when the paparazzo broke the news that Perry is reportedly working on a new song about John. “I actually want everybody’s song to go #1,” he said. “I purposely stopped writing hits to give other people a chance to have #1 songs.”

LOL, yeah, okay. How many #1s has he actually had, anyway? I bet I can count them all on one hand with fingers left over. Glad to see he’s back to being his usual toolbox self.

Anyway, here’s some pics of Katy looking hot on the global covers of Cosmo, just for fun:
