In Hollywood, the pressure to obtain key film roles is obvious, and some handle rejection better than others. Yesterday passé actress Debi Mazar ignited a little bit of a Twitter feud by mocking globally-recognised singer Katy Perry for getting selected for a film role over her.
Whilst she’s performed in front of many millions of people in the last few years, Katy‘s never had a proper film acting role before, despite several previous television appearances, so this is a big deal for her. The bitchy actress wrote sarcastically: “I just found out that I lost a film role to…
@KatyPerry I have no words. I wish @katyperry all the best. The role was an edgy woman who ran an escort service. It really could be anyone. I’m 20 years older! Different way to go.”
She may as well have just bitch slapped her with a bottle of sun tan lotion, as a fan pointed out on a forum, “the shade is so thick.” Another Gaga fan commented with the following in the same forum: “Maybe she’ll win an ‘Oscar‘ before a ‘Grammy‘.” Ouch! No words on the film’s producer/ director/ release date/ title yet. Yeah, we could be waiting a while for this one… In the meantime, this Debi chick needs to accept her eternal irrelevance, and can go back to riding off pal Madonna‘s fame. Meow.
Katy Perry broke the usual dress-only unspoken rule at the ‘Kids Choice Awards‘ this year when she wore a bodycon 2 piece set by ‘Max Azria for Hervé Léger.’ Now, ‘Hervé Léger‘ is known for its bandage dresses that cost well into the thousands apiece, and can only really be worn by those with washboard flat stomachs, but she can certainly pull it off!
I adore the blue and neon yellow coloured geometric print on this piece, and was delighted this week when I found a High Street alternative. I stumbled across ‘Famous Frocks
‘ when I was on ‘The Valleys
‘ star Lateysha
page, as she has just purchased this very outfit, and was asking followers if she should wear it out. At just £99
, it’s a fantastic alternative to the designer version, and it’s available in sizes 6-14
Hot tamale Katy Perry has made another career first by landing her first cover for globally- recognised fashion magazine ‘Vogue.’ The fun singer was interviewed in several locations for the feature, (the pictures that accompany the interview show a very stripped down version of her usual self), including the San Ysidro Ranch, Lotusland and La Super-Rica, where she spoke in depth about her fixation with saving ‘broken birds’, and how she views herself as an emotional widow:
She spoke a little about a her music writing on the go, confirming that she carried around a little dictaphone for any random moments of inspiration. She played a ‘little experiment’, and said: “This is like its rawest form, and I titled it ‘Bad Photographs’ because the idea is that when people are in a relationship they only take photographs when they are happy, and sometimes when it ends you realize maybe it would be important to take photographs when it’s not happy. So I have this idea-Looking back we should have taken photographs . . . of all the unhappiness . . . coz now my mind’s playing tricks on me. . . . I forget we are not meant to be. . . .” You know what I am saying? So I put it in this song last night. That’s how I write a song.”
On her ex husband Russell Brand, she dished: “He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011. He’s hysterical in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows. So. Hysterical to a point. I mean, I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie. That wasn’t edited to leave footage out—there wasn’t any footage of him. At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness. He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting. I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day. I let go and I was like: This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that.”
On her most recent love John Mayer
, who she played the journalist in her car a song based upon him, she sighed: “No, I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him.. All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind. Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds. I hope I don’t have to live as a widow. An emotional widow. No, I don’t believe that. But I think that I can just right now focus on me and strengthening myself and my emotional support system. I’m not in a relationship, I’m just on my own—I am myself in my own bed. I have to be happy being alone, and I am happy. I believe that I will be loved again, in the right way. I know I’m worth it.” You most certainly are honey…
Katy Perry already has 2 fragrances under her (waist) belt, and now a third is on its way…the flawless singer has often discussed her adoration for rock band ‘Queen‘ as a teenager, and Brian May even attended one of her London concerts back in 2009…this musical influence has led her to name the upcoming fragrance ‘Killer Queen‘. She adopted a more regal persona during her ‘Teenage Dreams‘ album photoshoot several years ago, and this will no doubt be reprised in the coming weeks, when she shoots a new ad campaign for it.
The plans were unveiled, as any 21st century celebrity does- on Twitter: “I have something very exciting to reveal to you later today… Stay tuned! OK! I have been working on my third fragrance for over a year & want to unveil the look NOW! What do u think?! Just had an elegant unveiling of my new fragrance ‘KILLER QUEEN‘ at the ‘Duke‘! Can’t wait to share the royal juice!
Katy Perry hasn’t released any new music for a while now, and her fans are getting restless. So they’ll all be pleased to hear that the pop singer is half way through recording her upcoming studio album, which is estimated to be due for release towards the end of the year.
According to ‘Billboard‘, she said at ‘ASCAP’s I Create Music Expo‘ event this week: “When I put myself on a timeline, when I tell the record company when I want to release the album, that’s when the race starts. That’s when I put pressure on myself.”
And as for the first track name to be released, she discussed her writing session with friend Bonnie McKee on track ‘Double Rainbow‘: “She came in from a yoga class and said, ‘I want to write a song called ‘Double Rainbow‘. So we have a song called ‘Double Rainbow.'”
To buy a slice of Katy, this fabulously kooky, (yet expensive at £480, eek!), garment from ‘Suno‘ is for you- head to ‘Avenue 32‘!
John Mayer gave girlfriend Katy Perry a beautiful red heart-shaped ruby ring on Thursday. The 14-carat Valentine’s Day gift was created by Santa Barbara-based jeweller Daniel Gibbings (where the great Katy hails from), and cost John £30,000. Don’t get too excited though…it’s not an engagement ring, and is purely a sign of his commitment to his lady.
John told ‘CBS Sunday Morning‘ viewers this weekend that he plans to marry eventually: “I’m still the kid from Connecticut. That’s what you do. For the first time in my life I don’t feel like I’m in a celebrity relationship. I really don’t. I’m not in a high profile – I know it’s high profile. Doesn’t feel that way to me. And great! I’m glad…For me, it feels like something that’s very human.”
Something tells me that he took inspiration from a certain ‘Gossip Girl‘ bitch, Blair Waldorf, who sports an identical heart shaped ruby throughout the television series.
Selfless-singer Katy Perry spent her Saturday this weekend helping kids wrap Christmas presents up for those less fortunate than themselves. The charitable lady returned to her roots by visiting Santa Barbara for the event, and the day’s acitivities were documented by Phoenix-based radio presenter Matt McAllister on his Twitter page (@KNIXMatt).
He wrote: “No big deal, my daughters are hanging out with Katy Perry today. My daughters volunteered to wrap presents for a charity today and they had no idea Katy Perry was coming! Happy Emma! That’s Lily wrapping presents with Katy Perry. Charity rocks! My girls with Katy Perry. The best part was that there was no media there and she wasn’t doing it for publicity. Forgot to mention her new boyfriend John Mayer was there too. Crazy day here in SB!”
