Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Katy Perry and John Mayer Break Up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After some summer loving, Katy Perry and John Mayer have called it quits. A source has confirmed to PEOPLE that the two are no longer dating.

“They’ll end up as friends,” the source said. “They were honestly having fun. People made it out to be far more than it was.”  The couple was seen canoodling at a bunch of different places including dinner at Chateau Marmont and a birthday party at a Hollywood talent agent’s home.

Another source said they seemed like a good match. “They almost acted like they’ve been a couple for a long time,” the source said. “It definitely didn’t seem like a new relationship.”

Katy, as we all know, was recently divorced from Russell Brand, and dated Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd earlier this year.

Can’t say I’m all that surprised. As quick as the relationship came, that’s as quick as it left. Ehh, nothing wrong with a little summer romance though. Hope it was fun Katy!

John Mayer and Katy Perry Getting Hot and Heavy!

John Mayer may be known as the notorious douchebag of the entertainment industry, but for some reason he has been able to woo the hot women. Rumors have been swirling that Katy Perry and Johnny have been hanging out “casually” but at a pool party that took place in Beverly Hills on August 4th, the now inseparable duo were spotted openly kissing and cuddling. Sounds like things are casual no more! Yep, Katy Perry has succumbed to Johnny’s boyishly good looks and devilish charm. Ahem.

A source told Us Weekly, “They hugged each other and splashed around. They were all over each other, making out! Neither of them is exactly shy.”

I’m sure BOTH of them are enjoying the attention.

A source close to Katy is saying that although she doesn’t want to get her heart broken again, ironically she is “officially dating John, not just hooking up.” The source went on to add that “she feels a real connection and wants to see where things go.”

Check out pictures of the Katy and John flirting and getting hot in a pool together here.

Thoughts on these two together? Will they last or is Katy just setting herself up for major heartbreak?

Russell Brand Gagged By Katy Perry’s Lawyers

Russell Brand just got gagged and I’m sure he didn’t like it this time. Katy Perry’s lawyers have reportedly gagged Russ from making anymore comments about their time together.

Apparently it was the Howard Stern interview that Brand did last month that ticked Katy right off.

About his time with Perry, he told Stern, “I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other… We were together when it was right to be together, and when it wasn’t we worked it out … It was a lovely relationship … it mostly didn’t work for practical reasons … We did work it out, she’s happy, I’m happy. I don’t want anything to hurt her. She’s younger than me, she’s a young woman and she’s beautiful and she’s sensitive and I care about her deeply … I don’t want to be too glib.”

Because of that very interview (it’s not like he said anything bad, geez), Katy went berserk. A source told the Daily Star Sunday that “Katy is fed up with Russell constantly making reference to their marriage in interviews. While it’s mainly harmless and often even complimentary, she’s sick to death of his comments being splashed all over the news and magazines…She called lawyers and told them to put a gagging order on Russ to prevent him from speaking to her in public again. Katy vowed never to reveal the ins and outs of their marriage break down or speak about Russell in any way. All she wants is the same in return.”

And so, we’ll probably never ever hear about anything about these two together unless Brand has a friend of a friend of a friend do the dirty work.

Drat!

Katy Perry is still talking about Russell Brand

And she just won’t quit.

This Sunday’s issue of PARADE features (a very star-spangled!) Katy Perry on the cover. The singer opens up about a number of things, including why her divorce to Russell Brand needed to be acknowledged in her new 3-D concert documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me. She also reacts to Obama’s support of same-sex marriage and chats about her new outlook on life.

Her new concert documentary chronicles Perry’s life onstage and off, through all her ups and downs—including her split from Brand after 14 months of marriage. Despite being addressed in the film, the breakup is understandably a sensi­tive subject for Perry. She refers to it only as “the situation”—as in, “I’m very aware that it’s inappropriate to give too much away, and that really the situation is just between two people,” she tells PARADE. When it’s noted that she and Brand have been respectful of each other in the media, she responds cryptically, “The universe will have its way.”

Check out highlights from the interview below.

ON HER BREAKUP NEEDING TO BE ACKNOWLEDGED IN HER FILM:

“I think if people walked out of the theater and that was completely avoided, they would be like, ‘Well, there’s an elephant in the room that’s still there.’ I like to go out there looking like a strong woman, because I am strong. But I am also a woman who goes through all kinds of problems and highs and lows. I wanted to show the complete spectrum.”

PERRY’S MUSICAL COLLABORATOR BONNIE MCKEE ON PERRY’S NEW SONG “WIDE AWAKE”:

“When we wrote ‘Teenage Dream,’ it was really about your first love and how magical that is. I think Russell made her feel that way again, and she felt she had found the person she was going to spend the rest of her life with. And whenthat didn’t turn out to be what she’d hoped, it kind of made sense to talk about waking up.”

ON HER 3-D CONCERT FILM KATY PERRY: PART OF ME:

“There are a lot of things that are personally uncomfortable to show, especially me without makeup and completely bloated or crying. But I’ve realized that it’s time for me to show my audience that you don’t have to be perfect to achieve your dreams. Because nobody relates to being perfect. … I’m okay with having bad dance moves. I’m okay with having horrible lower teeth. That’s what makes me me, and for some reason it’s worked out all right.”

ON PERRY’S REACTION TO PRESIDENT OBAMA’S SUPPORT OF SAME-SEX MARRIAGE:

“I was really happy; I probably went down to West Hollywood and had a shot. I came from a different mind-set growing up, and my mind has changed. My viewpoint on all these things—equality for women, the choice to love anyone you want—hopefully, we will look back at this moment and think like we do now concerning [other] civil rights issues. We’ll just shake our heads indisbelief, saying, ‘Thank God we’ve evolved.’ That would be my prayer for the future.” ‘

ON CALLING THE UNITED STATES HER HOME:

“Not to sound overly cheesy but I really appreciate the freedom we have in America—especially as a female.”

Katy Perry’s Sister Angela Hudson Is a Shoplifter!

Well not professionally, but she DID get busted shoplifting back in the day…but you’ll never guess what she had stashed in her purse!

It’s all about Katy Perry and her new movie Part of Me in 3D. She’s on a big time promotional tour and why wouldn’t she be when she put TWO million dollars of her OWN money into this project?! Girlfriend needs to make a profit, yo. In a late-night interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Perry revealed that her good-girl sister Angela Hudson wasn’t such a good girl. After stealing lingerie from a department store, Katy’s Christian parents sent Angela away to school in Arizona.

Perry revealed, “She’s like the angelic figure; she’s very perfect and sweet… She’s sinned maybe once in her life and that one sin had her kicked out and moved to Arizona, because she stole, like, a bra and panty set from Macy’s. She had to go and live with, like, another family… for a couple of months.”

She went on to add, “She probably doesn’t like me telling you this on live TV. She’s such a good girl. She’s the oldest child and she’s, like, my warden; I’m the one that’s doing all the sinning.”

Perry also explained her how love for Japan came to be when her parents opened up their home to foreign exchange students. She said, “My parents had an extra room… and we had exchange students from Japan come and live with us at our house and I was just, like…, ‘Everything is Hello Kitty and it’s perfect and it’s clean and you eat with sticks.’ It was so incredible watching them as a culture and I’ve been obsessed ever since. They’re very polite… She (student) brought me these Hello Kitty chopsticks and I still haven’t opened (them) and I was, like, 13.”

Perry also mentioned how her obsessive nature drove her Japanese friends away. “I asked to borrow one of their clothes and they were very weirded out by it. I was like, ‘It’s so cute, all your little outfits, can I borrow one…’ (I was like), ‘I’m so obsessed with you, I wanna skin you and wear you like Versace!’”

Weird, indeed.

Katy Perry Is Starting A Record Label, Keeps Talking About Russell Brand

Katy Perry covers The Hollywood Reporter magazine and gives a personal interview about her life in the spotlight. Yes she talks about her short-lived marriage to Russell Brand even though she said that she wasn’t going to talk about it anymore. Sigh.

At any rate, the photo shoot was kind of amazing. Kind of simple but the color-blocked dress is adorable. Check out highlights from the interview below.

ON THE REAL REASON SHE AND RUSSELL BRAND SPLIT:

“Nobody knows what really happened except the two people who are in it.”


ON HOW SHE WANTED TO BRING CLASS AND TRUTH TO THE TOPIC OF HER DIVORCE IN HER 3D FILM

“Like how I write my songs, honesty has always worked for me. So if it ain’t broke, why f***ing fix it?.”

ON HOW SHE WOULD OFTEN BREAK DOWN IN TEARS OVER HER PERSONA LIFE BETWEEN CONCERTS:

“There were times when what was going on in my personal life was so overwhelming that I had to bend over to let those tears fall straight out of my eyes and not my false lashes just as I’m about to go up on that ramp and sing Teenage Dream.”

ON CONTRIBUTING $2 MILLION OF HER OWN MONEY TO FINANCE SOME OF THE FILM:

“Trust me, I have a vision. My frugal business manager, God bless him, was sweating.”

ON STARTING HER OWN RECORD LABEL:

“When it does come to fruition, I’m going to try and avoid the things that take away any fighting chance for an artist to have financial success.”

Katy Perry Debuts Wide Awake Video!

Katy Perry has debuted her new video “Wide Awake”, marking the end of her Teenage Dream era.

Of the new video and the ending credit to her Katy Perry: Part of Me 3-D documentary, Perry said, “It kind of is like the perfect last word of me at this moment.”

“It’s kind of like the labyrinth of my life in the past two years. “I just wanted to tell a story about myself kind of going through this journey, maybe sometimes trying to get out of the maze. There’s good parts and bad parts.”

In the video a younger version of herself helps the adult Perry go through the maze, weaving through the paparazzi, devilish men and a deceitful Prince Charming. “I think what kept me going is the purity in my belief of music and my love for music; that’s the younger version of me.”

She went on to add that her arm tattoo that reads “Go with the flow” has turned into a real life motto for her. She explains, “That is how I have to live my life sometimes, because there’s always great things that pop up. There’s bad things that get in your way. I mean, it’s an obstacle course. Of course, it’s a fun one. You just have to be prepared and strong and ready for it. In this music video, I came out at the other end learning a lesson and feeling strong enough to get back out on that stage.”

Check out Perry’s “Wide Awake” video below.

Katy Perry Turned Down X-Factor!

Remember those rumors we heard about Katy Perry possibly being a judge on the X-Factor panel in the UK to replace Kelly Rowland? Well apparently those rumors were true, but Katy turned the gig down.

Perry recently told UK talk show host Graham Norton, “There’s not actual paper contracts, but people have been interested in me judging other people. I would do it but I’m just not ready for it yet. Maybe in the future, I would love to.”

Shoot! I’d love to see Katy on a show as a judge! But it seems like everyone is going that route right now. I’m guessing she didn’t want to be a part of that trend.

Katy Perry Shot The Drama For Her Movie Too

Katy Perry is ALREADY promoting her movie Katy Perry: Part of Me, even though it doesn’t come out until July. Perry stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, May 22nd to chat about her upcoming film and why she thinks it is important to show all sides of her life and not just the positive. In other words, Katy is selling the drama of her divorce.

Ellen: Like you said, you shot the good, the bad. Who knows what’s going to happen in your life when you start shooting things? You got married during that time.

Katy: I did.

Ellen: And then that didn’t turn out to last and that part of it is still in there?

Katy: I thought it was important for me..First of all, I thought it was important to show everything in between. I think sometimes people think that we’re perfect and we know we’re not perfect, at all. I think it’s important start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dream you always have to be perfect or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world. So that’s why I decided to put everything into the film. In the most tasteful way. But mostly it’s about how I go there and the ride along the way which can be bumpy but mostly it was extremely fun…

I do like Katy Perry but for some reason I see this movie being a poor seller at the box office. If she rakes in the dough with this one, I will pee my pants.

Katy Perry Performs An Emotional “Wide Awake” For Billboard Music Awards Crowd

Katy Perry took to the Billboard Music Awards 2012 stage to perform her latest single “Wide Awake”. The pop star unveiled the song live (yeah, believe it or not) alongside aerialists doing acrobatics and making googly eyes.

Perry sat on a suspended sheet that was lowered from the rafters and I’m not gonna lie but it surely reminded me of Pink’s performance where she hangs from a sheet and does all some crazy poses all which ways all while singing live.

At any rate, Katy kept her body mostly vertical during this performance AND despite being pitchy in some spots, she DID sing live.

“Wide Awake” was written for Perry’s upcoming 3D film, “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” due out July 5.

Check out Katy’s performance from last night’s show below.

Russell Brand Says Katy Perry is a “beautiful human being”

Russell Brand stops by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, May 17th and yes, she asks him that probably dreaded question. Russ also meets his fellow Essex natives, Sophia Grace and Rosie!

Check out highlights and videos from Russell’s appearance below.

ON HIS DIVORCE FROM KATY PERRY:

Ellen: There’s obviously been a big change in your life since you were here last. And, how are you doing?

Russell: All right thank you. Because me and Katy got divorced. I still, love her as a human being. But, sometimes when you’re in a relationship I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything. I was very happy to be married with her. She’s such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her.

Ellen: Good. That’s the way it should be.

Russell: Yes, because you can’t absolutely make everything the way you want it to be in life. Sometimes thing are just different and then you to just move with that and try and remain in contact with what is beautiful about yourself and each other with any situation.

Ellen: Exactly, I think people forget that. They get together for a reason. Because you love someone or attracted and or there is something good in the beginning. and some how when it ends how ever long or short you forget all the wonderful things about that person that you loved and I think it’s important to hold on like you said.

Russell: Just remain beautiful. That is still a person I still consider to be beautiful and I have nothing but positivity for her.

Awwww. His publicist trained him well!

Check out the vid of Russ meeting those two crazy girls below!

Russell Brand Rips Apart Heckler Who Yells Out Katy Perry’s Name Repeatedly At His Comedy Show

If you go to one of Russell Brand‘s comedy shows, just don’t yell out “Katy Perry!” because he will rip you a new one.

It all went down at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, N.J., on Saturday. When Brand decided to put the spotlight on this guy, he jumped off of the stage and walked right up to the offending audience member.

“Let’s see you, mate. Let’s see how your mental illness looks in the daylight. It’s you, is it? Oh, dear. I was hoping that your personality was as a result of physical beauty. I thought, ‘this guy’s confident probably because he’s incredibly handsome,’ but look at you! You look like someone who’s fallen off the outside of a church,” he said.

He continued, “They say of course, don’t they, that empty vessels make the most noise. What an enormous echo of nothingness from you … I think silence is your friend. I think keep your lips firmly, firmly clamped together, because everything that comes out of your mouth, from your idiotic announcements to your disgusting halitosis which is cutting through this room is an abomination.”

Check out what the roasting for yourself below!

Katy Perry Kisses Up On Florence and the Machine guitarist At Coachella

Meet Katy Perry’s boyfriend Robert Ackroyd. (In the photo above, he’s the guy standing behind Katy…the one with the 80’s mushroom bowl cut.) Yeah, apparently that canoodling with that sexy male model was just a fling because at Coachella, the guy she was rubbing all up on was certainly NOT Baptiste Giabiconi.

Instead Katy was rubbing her kitty up against the Florence and the Machine guitarist and let’s just say Katy and her new love interest could not keep their hands off each other.

They danced together, swaying along to the music and they googly eyed each other all evening. I’m sure many cocktails were indulged and Bobbi did get what he came for. A hot greasy weekend at Coachella!

It seems as if Bobbi enjoyed his time with the pop princess as he even sent out a tweet referring to Katy as “KP”. He tweeted, “Best Coachella ever. Scratch that, best weekend ever. Dre, Snoop, Pac, Nate, Fiddy & KP.”

Let’s see if this guy lasts a bit longer than Baptiste did.

Lauren Conrad and Lea Michele Pretend To Be Smitten at Lacoste Live Pool Party

This weekend, LACOSTE hosted the LACOSTE L!VE Pool Party at Coachella presented by HTC at a private estate in Thermal, California. LACOSTE L!VE, the younger-minded, fashion conscious crocodile, geared up to host a chic pool party, presented by HTC, a leading designer of smartphones like the new HTC One.

Music-loving tastemakers and influencers were invited to make a splash in the pool among green crocodile rafts, enjoy a cocktail, or just lounge in the desert sun. Guests were re-fueled by delicious gourmet treats from the famous “The Slice Truck” and “Don Chow Tacos” food trucks from LA or cooled down with FIJI Water Shaved Ice and Patrón Tequila popsicles. LACOSTE and HTC also featured additional activities such as Giant Twister, speed boat racing, Superbooth fun, panoramic photos by TourWrist, a phone charging station, and more.

And yes, celebrities were on hand to show their support. Such stars who stopped by for the sun and the swag included: Lea Michele, Katy Perry and her purple hair, Diane Kruger, Cory Monteith, Lauren Conrad, Joshua Jackson, and Lo Bosworth.

Lauren Conrad and Lea Michele looked as though they were forced to stand by each other for a say-cheese session. You know Lauren is trying to fight off an eyeroll!

I must say Diane Kruger is looking especially foxy, so much so that I didn’t even recognize her. Joshua must be doing something right! Werk it, girl! (FASHION FYI: Diane is sporting a LACOSTE Spring/Summer 2012 Cotton Colorblock Dress, while Lea works the Spring/Summer 2012 red bikini, belted cotton cover-up and watch.

There were also performances by DJs with special guest appearances by Elijah Wood and Nigel Godrich of Radiohead.

Katy Perry Talks Her Garage Sale Style With Teen Vogue

Katy Perry covers the May issue of Teen Vogue looking as smurfy as ever. But apparently her dad is to blame for her eccentric style of rainbow, candy-coated and bright-colored bubble-gummy ensembles. In fact, her dad used to drag her to garage sales to buy her second-hand clothes. In other words, she grasped that thrift style flavor early on.

Check out highlights from the interview below.

ON THE EVOLUTION OF HER FASHION STYLE:

“When I was nine years old, my father used to wake me up at seven every Saturday morning to take me to garage sales. I couldn’t afford the clothes that the other girls at school were wearing, so instead I looked for things that were unique to me. I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago. If you try to be everything to everyone, you’ll only end up completely confused. I don’t like to take fashion too seriously. I love it, and I am so grateful when big brands want to associate with me, but mostly I just want to take chances and have fun and truly live. Sometimes that means wearing some ridiculous, cat-inspired outfit rather than whatever happens to be in this season.”

ON WHY THE HELL SHE DECIDED TO DO A 3D MOVIE:

“One of my main reasons for doing this is that people think of me as though I’m Dorothy in the ruby slippers. I want them to see everything else that’s involved. Yes, I am her, but at the end of it all, I’m also the guy behind the curtain.”

ON HER AMBITION TO GO BEYOND BEING A SINGER:

“There was a time when I was going to be involved in The Help—just a small part, I wasn’t going to be Emma Stone or anything—but I couldn’t because the shooting schedule conflicted with the release of my record. And I was upset about that; I knew it was going to be an important film.”

ON WHAT’S TO COME FOR HER FASHION-WISE:

“Like, I’m still doing the pinup thing, but now when I do it, I want to be the pinup of the future, like Rachael in Blade Runner.”
