Aw, sweet little Katy Perry. We love her (that’s a statement, not a question) and think she’s great, weirdness and all… and boy is there some weirdness. From the fact that she finds John Mayer sexy to her most recent admission that she used to keep a lock of Taylor Swift‘s and Miley Cyrus‘s hair in her purse, I’m not sure it can get too much weirder.
Katy recently held a Prism listening party for iHeartRadio, after which she answered some fan questions. One inquisitive KatyCat wanted to know what she keeps in her purse, to which she replied:
“One of the first times I went to the Grammys, I got to share a dressing room with Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, and I asked them for a lock of hair from each of them, which is totally creepy, but awesome.
“I put little bows on them individually and put them in my purse. And that was my little secret and I’m a freak!”
Well, you are a freak, Katy. I’m a little baffled about this one, admittedly. However, maybe it’s just because I love her, but I kinda think it’s endearing. It’s weird and creepy and why in the hell would anyone want to do that, yes, but I dunno, I love her!

Yes, yes, we know. Katy Perry and John Mayer are the happiest couple on earth and they have amazing sex (I’m trying not to gag) and they ALSO have a ton in common. Seems like a match made in heaven, right?
Here’s how deep their love goes (via DS):
“There’s a lot of understanding when you get home and say, ‘Ah, I had a pretty crappy show’,” she explained.
“[John's] like, ‘I understand because I’ve had one, too’. You get to share music. The dance parties are a lot more fun.”
Aw, well isn’t that special? Listen, I’m not here to tell anyone where to find true love, but I cannot imagine that these two are in it for the long haul. I really love Katy but I wonder about her choice in men. She seems to be attracted to men that she can fix or save. Travie McCoy was an addict, Russell was an addict (of a different kind), John is (was?) a douchebag womanizer… you are too good for this, boo.

Since Katy Perry has finally released Prism to the masses, she’s doing lots of press surrounding the album and gets asked a lot of stupid questions, to which she’ll be developing plenty of soundbite answers. In one of her recent interviews, this one with Entertainment Weekly, Katy confirmed that yes, all of her songs are extremely autobiographical and very specifically so. As in, yes, Russell Brand totally broke up with her via text message out of nowhere, like she sings about on ‘Ghost’.
“Well, imagine what you go through,” she tells EW. “Imagine what happens when you go through a break up. We all go through break ups and we all get very depressed and desperate. The lyrics are very exact and autobiographical. That’s how I write. But the one thing about those lyrics is you can hear me finding my strength throughout the song. It starts off really low and then I kind of stand up for myself and say, ‘No!’”
Perry adds: “Sometimes you look in the mirror when you’re crying and if you look in the mirror it will make you cry more because you’re feeling sorry for yourself. And then sometimes you look in the mirror and you cry and I’ve been like: ‘Snap out of it! It’s time to — come on — grow up! No!’ There’s almost like this inner warfare that comes out, this inner battle between the good angel and the bad devil.”
Y’all know I love the new album and Katy herself, and there are some really great lyrical moments on there – particularly ‘By the Grace of God’, which is sad as hell, but let’s be frank: most of the songs are about John Mayer eating her out and all the sex they have and whatnot. Well, maybe not most, but at least half – ‘Legendary Lovers’, ‘Birthday’, ‘Spiritual’, ‘Walking On Air’… need I go on? – so I think she’s managed a nice mix.
Have any of you listened yet?

Katy Perry has a lot going on right now. She’s got a big album coming out and she’s the new face of Cover Girl. So she’s promoting a lot on twitter (remember her giant gold bus?) and now she’s sharing her best twitter tips. These are useful even if you’re not a celeb, I promise. Want to know how to tweet effectively? Here’s what she told USA Today:
- Less is more.
- When you decide to have a glass of wine, put the phone down. Don’t drink and tweet.
- Don’t be self-indulgent.
- Don’t use it just to promote yourself. That’s boring.
- (On addressing rumors): I see a lot of celebrities send out messages like that online, and I think, ‘Sweetheart, nobody knows about this so-called issue because we don’t have you on Google Alert. You’re just throwing another log on the fire.’ I do it only in extreme cases if someone is jeopardizing my character.
- (On haters): I don’t know they exist because I don’t give them attention. If you tried to please everyone, you’d have no sense of self. You’d lose yourself in the process of being a people-pleaser and there’d be nothing unique left.

Niall tweeted Katy on Sunday night to say the following after she mentioned him during her performance on UK’s X Factor:
I love you @katyperry ! Thank you! Ps . Will u marry me?
— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) October 21, 2013
Aw, well isn’t that cute? Obviously he was joking, but the pair share a special bond since Katy was a guest judge on X Factor a few seasons ago when he auditioned and she actually said yes to putting him through. BIG MISTAKE, Katy.

Listen, you all know by now that I unabashedly love Katy Perry. I just think she’s great – she makes catchy tunes, she’s really goofy and down-to-earth and she also happens to be incredibly gorgeous, as you can see above. I suppose that’s why Cover Girl decided to pick her as their latest face of the brand. Nice choice, Cover Girl. Her campaign will start running in Spring 2014, and here’s what she had to say about it:
“In addition to music, I’ve always considered make-up to be a powerful creative avenue of self-expression.
“I’m honored to partner with CoverGirl and share more colors and textures of my approach to beauty to inspire my audience.”
The problem with celebrity beauty collections – like, say Rihanna’s MAC stuff – is that just because you’re a fan of someone doesn’t mean you’re going to look good in the same colours/shades/styles that they do. It’s nice to buy a deep purple lip gloss because your fav star wears it, but chances are you will look like a goth clown in it. Of course, that’s not true across the board, and if Katy is bringing out custom colours, I’m all for it because we have the same hair colour and skin tone, it seems.
Whatever, let’s all just look at the pretty picture.
