Katy Perry Promotes Upcoming Super Bowl Halftime Show in New Commercial

Katy Perry officially dropped a commercial for her upcoming Super Bowl halftime show during last night’s American Music Awards!

The commercial, also promotion for Pepsi, shows Katy “prepping” for her performance coming up with a bunch of goofy ideas like edible glitter, time machines, and way too many kittens!

Check out Katy’s commercial below!

I’m actually a little excited to see Katy perform! She has a lot of great hits that she can bring to the table. I’m sure she will bring a lot of energy, just hopefully not too much glitter or any kittens. We’ll see what she has up her sleeve in February!

Katy Perry Will Perform at the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show

Football season is just getting started, but we already have our set performer for Super Bowl 2015! The NFL has chosen Katy Perry to perform at the halftime show of the championship game!

According to Billboard, the singer was picked after being a potential frontrunner along with Coldplay and Rihanna (though Rihanna probably wasn’t going to do it anyway after CBS cut “Run This Town” from the Thursday Night Football opening).

However, a few months ago the NFL asked the candidates if they would be willing “to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig.” Katy herself said on ESPN’s College Game Day recently, “I’m not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl.” Guess she either changed her mind, or the NFL cut that idea!

I like Katy, and I think she is a great choice for a halftime performance. I use to think that artists with more longevity in the industry should only perform, but I think we’re running out of legendary folks who can put on good shows to draw in ratings. Katy definitely has brought the hits over her career so far, so I think she will be able to put on an amazing show. Congrats to her for this honor!

Katy Perry Will Probably Hook Up With John Mayer Again

cosmopolitan

Katy Perry has the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine for 63 editions of the July 2014 issue. SIXTY THREE editions. Sweet, right?

Pretty cool, but not as interesting as the interview conducted by Chelsea Handler for the magazine. Yes Katy she talked about her failed marriage to Russell Brand and her on and off again relationship with John Mayer.

Of her divorce, Katy said, “I guess I happen to be attracted to high-frequency men. It feels like a hundred lifetimes ago, so it’s like digging up an old grave. A lot of therapy has happened and a lot of understanding and growth. Sometimes you have to go through all this sh*t to get your grips on life and figure out what the next boundaries in your love life are going to be. You have to go through the mud in order to find that peaceful place. In the long run, it was necessary for me to have more of a teammate.”

When Handler asked if she’d ever hook up with Mayer again, Perry replied, “I know it sounds really hippie-sh*t, but I’m living in the now and not fantasizing about the future or (being) torn up about the past. I’m super Eckhart Tolle. I have a lot of respect for (John) still, and I know it goes both ways. There’s no bad blood, but I’m sure there will be inspired songs.” And probably another hot hookup.

Chelsea inquired about how long Katy has gone without sex and Katy was not hesitant, “Maybe six months or a year. I don’t stay single for long. I’m not like Professor Higgins with my sex life. I’m not super strict. For one, the most important thing about sex is connection.”

Katy Perry Pole Dances at Grammys 2014 (VIDEO)

katy-perry

Katy Perry’s Grammys 2014 performance pretty much blew my mind. The Roar singer kept the audience entertained with a busy stage and surprisingly live vocals!

Katy incorporated so many elements into her Dark Horse performance with rapper Juicy J including witchcraft, a crystal ball, a fire, a pole dance and yes, even a dark horse.

It starts out with Perry appearing as a witch inside a crystal ball and then she appears in a dark wonderland that includes creatures of the night dancing around on stage. She then was sporting a red, light up bustier while using a broom as a stripper pole. Juicy J came out to join Perry on stage, appropriately wearing a black suit. Towards the end of the performance, the set filled with flames and it appeared as if Perry was burned at the stake. It was pretty sweet.

Check out Katy Perry’s Grammys 2014 performance of Dark Horse below.

Katy Perry Talks New Album, Divorce From Russell Brand, Boyfriend John Mayer In New Marie Claire

katy-perry

Katy Perry appears on the cover of Marie Claire’s January issue (on stands December 17th). After her marriage flamed out, Perry thought her new album would be dark and brooding. Instead, she turned personal pain into professional triumph, and now prepares to tour with a message of rising from the ashes.

In her interview with Marie Claire, see discusses everything from her new album, to her dark hours following her split from Russell brand and her relationship with her parents and current boyfriend John Mayer.

On not slowing down: “I’m never going to be lazy, because there are 500 other people waiting in line for this position.”

On being vulnerable: “I feel like my secret magic trick that separates me from a lot of my peers is the bravery to be vulnerable and truthful and honest. I think you become more relatable when you’re vulnerable. When you try to market yourself like some supernatural figurine who can’t be fucked with, I always resort back to Scripture: ‘Pride comes before a fall.'”

On Prism, her new album: “I thought it was going to be a lot darker – acoustic or Fiona Apple-y. You know, a ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ vibe.”

On the dark hours following her split from ex-husband Russell Brand: “There were two weeks of my life after I found out the truth of my marriage where I was like, ‘OK. All right. I can’t feel this. This is too intense right now.’ I was, like, just eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and drinking, and that’s it.”

On her relationship with her parents: “People don’t understand that I have a great relationship with my parents – like, how that can exist. There isn’t any judgment. They don’t necessarily agree with everything I do, but I don’t necessarily agree with everything they do. They’re at peace with – they pray for me is what they do. They’re fascinated with the idea that they created someone who has this much attention on her. My parents are Republicans, and I’m not. They didn’t vote for Obama, but when I was asked to sign at the inauguration, they were like, ‘We can come.’ And I was like, ‘No, you can’t.’ They understood, but I was like, ‘How dare you?’ in a way.”

On practicing Transcendental Meditation: “the best thing I got out of my previous relationship, because it was introduced to me via my ex-husband.”

On her on-and-off relationship with boyfriend John Mayer: “I took a break from my boyfriend, not one that I wanted. It was like a splash of cold water to search inward on what was going on with me. That is what let me to this new awakening, this realizing, If I don’t do some self-love, I’m not going to be able to keep the love that I want. I still needed to deal with all of my ex-husband stuff. I hadn’t. It’s almost like if I kept talking about it, it would seem like I actually cared about it. I don’t.

katy-perry1

On having kids: “I’m definitely not there yet, and I can’t plan that far in advance. When I decide to have a family, I’ll just want to be Mom for a little bit.[Brand] really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn’t ready – I think it was a way of control. I think it was part of, If I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice – I’d have to be home more. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn’t ready for it. It wasn’t like, ‘Hey, let’s have a kid because we’re in love.”

On boyfriend John Mayer: “He’s just a fantastic partner. I’ve been a fan of his for such a long time. He’s got a brilliant, brilliant mind. It’s a rad, mature relationship.”

Katy Perry AMA’s Performance: Perry Goes Geisha For Unconditionally

Have you seen the Katy Perry AMA’s performance? Well, if you didn’t, your eyes missed a party…Geisha style. Perry went full kimono on us all and even performed in socks. How fitting.

Perry performed her latest song off of Prism called “Unconditionally”, you know, the song rumored to be about her on and off again boyfriend (and I believe they are now “on” again) John Mayer.

Check out the Katy Perry AMA’s performance of Unconditionally below then let me know what you think below.

FIRST LISTEN: Katy Perry’s “Unconditionally”

She has a new album called Prism, with a hit single Roar. But what does the rest of Prism sound like?

Well, I’ll let you know right now. No matter what, Katy is going to sell copies like nobody’s business.

We recently got a sneak peek of her rumored next single called “Unconditionally”. So is this another anthemic love song? Yep, pretty much. Katy keeps it a safe hit with the lyrical declaration, “I will love you unconditionally.”

I would have to say if this song was to be compared to a previous track, we’d have to say that Firework could be its sister.

Yes, it’s another Perry love song. Yes, it’s another feel good track. And yes, I feel all warm and cozy when I hear the lyrics.

This will most definitely be another power anthem that fans are going to make another hit. If you feel like crawling in a corner because some jerk broke your heart, you’re going to want to listen to this song to get you through it.

It is that kind of song. Check out a sneak peek of Katy Perry’s Unconditionally below and then let me know what you think. Is this another potential hit for Perry? I’m pretty sure it is.

Katy Perry Launches Third Fragrance Called “Killer Queen”

katy-perry

Katy Perry is starting to figure out that the beauty/fashion/fragrance industry is where its at. The singer has officially launched her THIRD fragrance called “Killer Queen” (her first two were “Purr” and “Meow”) and she pretty much got festive for the big launch.

On May 2nd in NYC, Katy sat on a throne inside the James B. Duke Mansion to give the deets on her new perfume.

Of her new fragrance, Perry revealed on Twitter, “OK! I have been working on my 3rd fragrance for over a year & want to unveil the look NOW! What do u think?!”

Katy Perry and John Mayer Split…Again

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Katy Perry and John Mayer are over…yet again. At least, according to a source over at PEOPLE. The pair had been dating for the past seven months, which seemed like a fresh start for them.

The couple were first seen together last summer, less than a year after Katy and Russell Brand divorced. Katy and John split for a little while in August, but got back together quickly and seemed to be doing well. Guess not.

Last month, John was pretty happy about the relationship, calling it “very human” and even speculating on the idea of marriage. Wonder what could have happened. Oh well…on to the next!

Katy and Russell: Together, Forever

In building only!

The recent divorcees from one another turned up at one of the biggest arenas in the world recently, and apparently, their skinny jeans and tons of MAC can indeed fit in the same space. The two were spotted on opposite sides of the Staples Center on Tuesday, marking the first time they’ve shared oxygen since they parted ways earlier this year. No one is certain yet if the two even realized they were in the same place, but in the days of Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest, what are the odds?

Not that I even cared when these two were together, but now that they are apart, I wish Brand would have taken half of Katy’s money when they divorced. Because you know she would have definitely taken half of his if he had been the breadwinner. And if anyone cares…

The Lakers lost to the Dallas Mavericks.

Oprah: #1 on Forbes Again!

Just because you don’t see Oprah Winfrey every day on daytime television, doesn’t mean that train has stopped in its tracks. If anything, that locomotive is doing just fine, thank you very much.

Forbes magazine, which annually releases a list of Hollywood’s highest paid women, has just announced their latest, and as has been the case for many years, media mogul Oprah Winfrey yet again claimed the top spot, collecting approximately $165 million dollars between May 2011 and May 2012. Winfrey was so far ahead of the rest of the pack that she could not even smell the Cheetos and Frappucino elixir of the #2 woman on the list – poptrick Britney Spears, who Audiotuned her way with $58 million dollars.

As Oprah screamed from the rooftops “I got this” at the other, less fortunate women on the list, there are a few notables present that may surprise many.

Pop singer Taylor Swift made the list in third place, making her the youngest person on the list. Swift whined her way all the way to the tune of $57 million. Others on the list included pop singer Rihanna, Ellen Degeneres, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Gisele Bündchen, and Judge Judy, who closed out the top 10 with $45 million.

Talk about girl power!

Katy Perry $20 Million Idol Offer: REJECTED!

Let me tell you, these reality shows are really expanding their options. American Idol officially now has Mariah Carey as a judge and I get that. It’s logical. But now, Idol supposedly was so damn desperate to land Katy Perry as a judge that they offered her a whopping $20 million!

Get this, Miss Bubblegum and Rainbows said no…to TWENTY million! She must have a whole helluva lot going on to turn that big fat paycheck down.

Sources close to Idol are saying that “Idol” trying to get Katy to sign on the dotted line for weeks. They supposedly started out with offering Perry $18 million and then throwing an additional $2 million at her for just ONE year.

I can’t imagine Mariah is very happy at this juncture. First not being the only female Idol judge on the panel (rumor has it Nicki Minaj is joining the judging panel) and knowing she could have gotten an additional $2 million if she would have held out a little longer.
