Here’s Katy Perry’s ‘diva’ tour rider

Katy Perry is currently in the middle of the UK leg of her Prismatic World Tour (she was bomb live! Would definitely see her again), and like all artists, she has a rider of items she requires in her dressing room before every performance. There have been some crazy ass diva requests out there, but I think Katy’s pale in comparison and seem not all that unreasonable, actually.

From The Daily Star (via the Evening Standard):

According to an insider, Katy knows exactly what she wants and needs while on tour, including a staff member to cut and wash her fruit and veg.

Other demands on her rider include a fresh supply of grapes, broccoli, apples, pineapple, dried figs and other fruits and vegetables.

The ‘Firework’ singer also requests three chilled bottles of Pinot Grigio white wine and a selection of tortilla chips at every show.

To decorate her dressing room, the star also needs a personalised director-style chair, custom-made French lamps and a cream rug, to make her feel at home.

An insider told the Daily Star:  “It’s crazy. Katy always seems so down-to-earth when you see her on TV so we didn’t expect her to have so many diva demands. We’ve also been told that staff mustn’t speak to her, especially to ask for a photo or an autograph, because it angers her before the show.”

LOL, okay… wow, she wants some fruit, chips and some wine? HOW DARE SHE! What a diva! And so she likes her creature comforts to make her feel relaxed since she spends hours in that room before going on stage? WHAT A BITCH!

Frankly, if I was an artist, my list would be way longer than that. It would include lots of chocolate, some chips, an ice cream sundae station, pizza… okay, I should stop now, probably.

Lady Gaga is feeling a bit jealous of Katy Perry, it seems…

Katy Perry is out on the road killing it with her Prismatic World Tour at the moment, and while fans are loving it and Katy is set to rake in millions from the dates, there’s one person out there who isn’t so thrilled with her success: Lady Gaga. Poor Mother Monster has been sipping on the haterade, apparently, and tweeted out a catty remark basically implying that Katy had copied off her looks with some of her own stage props.

Yes, because Gaga has a copyright on green hair and anyone else who has it is copying off her. Same with horses – she’s the first and only person to ever use a horse in her act (which – oh wait, she didn’t even use it in an act, she rode it to an awards show), so how DARE you copy!

Some people are so pressed. Gaga needs to chill out and maybe reassess reality a bit. We’re sorry ARTPOP flopped, girl, but it’s not that serious.

Katy Perry’s Prismatic World Tour is ON!

Katy Perry Performs At The Odyssey Arena, Belfast

Katy Perry has been gearing up for a world tour in support of her latest album, Prism, and now it’s ON! The Prismatic World Tour started last night in Belfast, Northern Ireland and will head to dozens of countries over the next several months. I’m actually seeing her on Saturday and I can’t WAIT!

I know Katy Perry gets a lot of flack, but I think her tour looks like tons of fun and she’s so over-the-top that it surpasses obnoxiousness and swings back around to being sorta awesome. Some photos from last night hit the Internet this morning and I’m even more excited!

Also, if you’re curious about what she’s singing, here ya go:

Diplo’s parents want to “grill” Katy Perry

Katy Perry apparently has a new boyfriend in the form of DJ Diplo, and while it’s all still pretty casual at this point, Diplo’s parents want to “grill” her to determine if she’s good enough for their precious son if it becomes anything more.

From Radar Online:

In an exclusive interview with, Barbara Pentz revealed she can’t wait to meet the stunning songstress. In fact, she’s got big plans for their first meeting!

“He hasn’t mentioned bringing her home to mama just yet. But I think he would before it gets serious,” Pentz said.

“Of course, she’s got to be grilled by the mom!” she added, with a laugh.

“He hasn’t discussed it with me, but he did with his dad,” Pentz revealed. “He said ‘we’re just hanging out. We’re just friends right now.’”

More like, friends with benefits?

Although the pair is already taking their budding romance bicoastal, Diplo’s mom isn’t holding her breath for Perry to meet the parents… yet.

“I don’t think it’s a big deal right now. I don’t think they’ll be wedding bells yet,” she said. “They’re both doing their own things right now and on opposite coasts. He doesn’t seem to be making a big deal about it.”

First of all, this this woman really his mother and did she actually say all this shit? Does he LIKE his parents? Word to parents of famous people: maybe don’t do interviews with celebrity gossip websites? I mean, seriously?

In any case, I doubt this “romance” between Katy and Diplo will go anywhere, but there you have it.

Did Katy Perry Diss Drake?


Katy Perry may have found herself in a bit of hot water when talking about Drake. Some are saying it’s a big diss; personally, I don’t see the big deal.

Here’s what happened. She went on Power 105.1?s The Breakfast Club radio show and talked about Juicy J, whom she worked with on the track “Dark Horse”. That’s what she fumbled. Via Hollywood Life:

“[Juicy J] is such a sweet, genuine guy. [He’s] an amazing hard worker,” Katy said. “I’ve worked with a lot of people that I’ve done little pieces on songs and not that they’ve got ego, but Juicy’s the kindest. He’s like the most kindest, sympathetic, sweet — I don’t wanna make him out like to be softer than Drake…”

Ouch! Katy quickly tried to backpedal, saying, “I love Drake. He’s like my secret diary.” Nice save.

What is so “ouch” about that? Is she implying that Drake’s music isn’t hardcore rap? Hopefully her sometimes-friend Rihanna won’t be too mad, and hopefully Drake won’t throw a tantrum.

Kids these days with their music.

What do you think about what Ms. Perry said?

Katy Perry’s apparently dating Diplo now

Dear God, Katy Perry has been linked to some real winners. Between marrying Russell Brand, shacking up with John Mayer and actually going on a date with Riff Raff, she’s really killing the game. Well, now apparently she’s got a new man on the scene, and that’s Diplo.

If you don’t know much about Diplo, never fear – no one really does. He worked some of MIA’s earliest stuff and even dated her, though that didn’t end too well. He’s gotten in a fight with Azealia Banks (who hasn’t?) and more importantly, is one half of Major Lazer, who make some pretty decent tunes sometimes. That’s about where my knowledge ends. But Katy Perry’s knowledge apparently goes much, erm, deeper (that was awful – forgive me).

From People:

On Thursday, the singer, 29, and the L.A.-based producer and DJ, 35, went to dinner at the Marlton Hotel in New York City. Then they headed to the Amazing Spider-Man 2 after-party at Skylight at Moynihan Station. “They were very affectionate, very lovey-dovey” at the bash, a source says. And when they weren’t “all over each other,” the source continues, “they were constantly looking at each other.” As they departed, “they quickly separated. She didn’t want it to look like they were together, but they were.”

On Friday night, Perry, sporting long black hair and bangs, attended a birthday party at 1Oak. Diplo performed. On Saturday, Perry saw Neil Patrick Harris on Broadway in the new production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Perry and Diplo had kept a low profile since the first Coachella weekend, when the green-haired songstress “enjoyed” his company, according to another source. “They were hanging out all [Saturday] night at the Jeremy Scott party – and they hung out all day Sunday at Coachella. They checked out Alesso together,” the source said.

I mean, cool… but maybe they’re just friends? I mean, BJ Novak is in the picture above – is Katy dating him, too? Lord almighty. If this is happening, fair enough, but not everyone is dating everyone else and it’s okay!

Katy Perry’s ‘Birthday’ video is here and it’s kind of hilarious

katy perry

We’ve seen a lyric video and a character teaser video for Katy Perry‘s new single, ‘Birthday’, which seems like a whole lot of lead up that the actual video would have a hard time living up to, right? Well, wrong… sorta. The full-length video is here, and it’s bizarre, slightly uncomfortable but also pretty hilarious.

I don’t think much else needs to be said. Just watch and… enjoy?
