From Us Weekly:
“Katy’s been trying to get him [Russell Brand] back!” a close Perry pal tells Us Weekly of the eight-time Grammy nominee, 27. “She’s a lost soul right now.”
What led to the singer’s change of heart? A solo trip to India April 3 — the same place where she wed Brand, 36, in 2010. “She’d already been missing Russell,” an insider explains. “Being back there stirred up even more old feelings.”
Perry may pine for her ex, but a friend of the singer tells Us a reconciliation with the British comic — who had a series of flings in the wake of filing for divorce December 30 — is a long shot.
“Right now, Katy and Russell are trying to get to the point where they can at least be friends,” says a Perry pal.
I can totally see this. I mean, just look at these photos from Coachella. Katy looks like a lost little lamb, or a soul in need of healing. Or just, you know, in dire need of a semi-clean Port-a-Potty to sober up in.
One time I went to a Radiohead show at an outdoor venue in Boston, and I’m not going to lie: I got f-cked up. I didn’t intend on going that far, but it happened, and when I realized just how f-cked up I was, I took refuge in the ladies’ bathroom. I locked myself in a stall and sat on the toilet seat lid, where I stayed for a good forty minutes or so, contemplating my bottle of water and devising a plan to make it back to our seats without incident. Eventually, a security guard (or BATHROOM SPECIAL FORCES, was more like it) came in and knocked a few times to make sure I wasn’t dead or sticking hypodermic needles in between my toes like A Classy Lady (of course I wasn’t; that shit’s mad disgusting), and when I told her that I’d just had a bit too much to drink and I wasn’t even vomiting; I just wanted to be alone for a little while, she said that I’d have to unlock the door and come on out, or she was going to unlock it for me and bring me out. I couldn’t believe it. The nerve, you know? Intruding on someone’s privacy like that.
But I bet if Katy Perry needed a minute—or forty-five—to collect herself in the loo, no one would be busting her chops about it. And that’s exactly what she appears to need in these photos—that time to sit a spell, sober up, and come back to enjoy the concert that she missed most of, without the intrusive policing of Robo Cop’s Nazi mistress.

It’s purple! And thank goodness. She’d been doing the blue hair, her rebound look after that whole divorce thing, since the beginning of the year, and I just wasn’t into it at all. I don’t think it was horrible or anything, but it wasn’t the best look she’s ever had.
This purple though? I really, really like it. A lot. Probably because purple is my very favorite color, but also because it’s the darkest her hair has been in a while, and my favorite Katy Perry is a dark-haired Katy Perry. Remember when she had black hair? That was just the best.
She debuted the purple hair at Coachella, which, as described by E!, is a “music festival in the California dessert.” After you’re done giggling at that, you can read the rundown they gave of Katy’s time at that sweet (LOL!) festival:
Katy Perry made her annual trip to the festival and hit the Hennessy and Details @ Midnight bash late last night. So which one of her favorite guys was by her side?
Perry’s BFF Markus Molinari was with her, as were about a dozen of her pals. The group arrived to the private estate around 2 a.m. after enjoying music at the festival.
Perry and her gang chilled in a private backstage lounge area inside the house. They were very calm throughout the night while chatting and sipping vodka and tequila cocktails. “She was in a great mood,” a source said of the 27-year-old beauty, who hit the road about an hour after arriving.
Yeah, yeah, but hey, do you want to see more of Katy’s outfit?
Yep. Nothing but class for this girl.

Why is it that when people get even a semi-cult-like following, they decide that the next thing they need to do is make some kind of “here’s my life because I just know you’re going to spend all of your hard-earned money on it even if it’s crap because it’s my life and not yours” movie? Because honestly, I just don’t understand it.
I mean, I love love love love love me some Adrien Brody. I do love him, in case I wasn’t entirely clear on that point. But would I pay fourteen bucks to go and watch him drone on about himself and his humble or not-so-humble beginnings? The short answer is “no.” The long answer is “come the f-ck on, I have way better things to do with both my money and my time.” I mean, I get that Justin Bieber‘s little-kid fanbase were probably all stoked that they could see the “real” him, but Katy Perry? Ugh. There’s just about as much “real” to girlfriend as there is to the authenticity of Heidi Montag‘s left tit.
Flat out? This movie looks like it’s going to suck. But you probably already knew that, didn’t you?

So, am I the only one who thinks, despite a superhuman rack, that Katy Perry is probably just a novelty piece for this Baptiste Giabiconi? Because even though I don’t generally dig the so-pretty, metrosexual look on a guy, this is one fine-looking man. If you can get past the stupid hair and the dumb pulling of model faces, Giabiconi is one sweet example of the male species. Katy, on the other hand? Really kind of average. Aside from the fact that she’s got boobs for days, like I said, her face and the rest of her body are predictably normal. If I saw her walking down the street wearing something shapeless, I probably wouldn’t even give her a second glance. Unless she was rocking the blue hair, of course. Then I’d look at her and say, “Wow, what a cheap-looking wig. Somebody should do something about that.” But not Baptiste – he’s completely smitten. He was the one who posted this photo on Twitter, with this caption:
hey my #littlekats u look So amazing in this pics !
Gotta love those who speak broken English. It’s really kind of endearing. When I was in high school I dated a foreign exchange student named Marcel. He was from Germany and he was really, really hot. He could barely laugh in English, but what necessity do words fill anyway when you have a 6’2″ hunk of international hotness riding in the passenger seat of your car, smiling at your every word? And that’s my very point, guys. That’s probably how Giabiconi sees Katy. She’s a hot piece of international ass who’s willing to hang on his every word. And hey, why not? Pretty people need companions, too, don’t they?

Let’s do a breakdown, shall we? I’ll list prevalent thoughts and questions, and we can discuss them. It’ll be great fun for everyone involved.
0:06: Why is Katy Perry sitting outside of her boyfriend’s office looking at a locket with their pictures inside it? Is she this dude’s girlfriend or his stalker? Is this whole thing happening inside her head?! Ok, I know we’re getting a little deep for the very first topic, so let’s just slow down and say “hey, creeper.”
1:02: I only know a handful of people in the military right now, and from what I’ve gathered, none of them made that huge decision based on a bumper sticker they saw on a bulletin board in a gas station. They put a little more consideration into it then “ugh, worst breakup ever, the Marines are totes the answer.”
1:16: Girls that cut their hair off while crying are not in the best of mental health. Just ask Britney Spears.
1:25: She’s strapping her boobs down because … oh, it’s because boobs aren’t allowed in the military, right?
1:30: Cute panties though!
1:39: Look, you guys, her uniform says “Perry” right on it! Does that mean she’s not playing a character? Does it mean this story is closer to her than it seems? I’m not saying the whole Marines part or anything, obviously, but maybe Russell Brand cheated on her and it drove her a little crazy perhaps? Maybe?
1:48: I can’t decide it Katy look super cute with her hair that short or not. Sometimes it makes her look adorable, but sometimes it just makes her look awkward. Thoughts?
3:07: It’s hard to tell exactly why I think this part is so absurd. She’s in her uniform, with her little cap, dancing under a big ol’ flag and singing about some dude. I have no idea.
Well, that about covers it on my end. How do you guys think Katy did with this one? What does it all mean?

You guys, I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve sat down to watch a perfectly good music video without being able to watch the whole thing through because I was too blown away with information. “My God,” I always say to myself. “This came completely out of nowhere! I had no idea what I was in for! If only someone could come up with a way to get the gist of the video that we could watch before the actual video, then life would be so much better! I would never have a problem wrapping my feeble little mind around a three and a half minute music video ever, ever again!”
It’s happened, friends. Trailers for music videos are becoming an actual thing. We can talk about what that says about our culture in just a moment, but for now, let’s get into this specific trailer, all right?
It’s a brand new Katy Perry song! As you can see it’s for “Part of Me,” that song that she totally didn’t write about Russell Brand: you can tell because lyrics like “so you can keep the diamond ring, it don’t mean nothing anyway” couldn’t possibly have, like, anything at all to do with him. But forget all that, because look, she’s a soldier! How cute! Get it, because it fits with the song because … because she’s like … um, it’s a metaphor for … there’s a lyric about bombs. That’s it.
Are you guys loving what Katy’s doing these days or what?
