Fresh Pop Culture
Regardless of format, the best celebrity interviews are always the ones in which the subject is willing to take off the gloves and be candid. Last week, Bill Murray proved that with his frank and wonderful Ask Me Anything session, and now, Katy Perry has proven it with a no-holds barred chat with GQ that touches on aliens and more importantly, her boobs.
Sorry Justin Bieber. In what must have come as devastating news for the beleaguered pop star, the Biebs lost his status as the world’s most followed person today when Katy Perry blew right past him. At this moment, her account now boasts more than 46.5 million supporters, roughly about 30,000 more than her younger counterpart who held the world’s most followed person title for about nine months.
Hey pop stars, remember when Parks And Recreation star Rashida Jones told you to cover up your lady bits? Well, apparently she’s not the only female celebrity who feels that way. “Roar” songstress Katy Perry sat down for an interview recently, and during the chat, she advised some of her peers to think twice before showing off the boobs.
Katy Perry might be a big pop star, now, but it wasn’t so long ago that she was just as starstruck as the rest of us. In fact, one of the first times she was invited to the Grammys, she saved a few unlikely mementos as keepsakes. Those keepsakes included locks of hair from two famous females, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus.
A few weeks ago, we brought you a video of an entire school of enterprising high school students who came together show school spirit and put together an epic video for Katy Perry’s “Roar.” It turns out the Lakewood High School’s efforts were not in vain, as the viral video as the video was recently announced as the winner of the "'Good Morning America's 'Roar' With Katy Perry Contest.”
Katy Perry’s new song, “Walking on Air,” sounds quite a bit different than her recent single, “Roar.” While “Roar” is a rather empowering and uplifting track, “Walking on Air” is a club thumper with a lot of spirit. Even Perry’s voice sounds a little different on the new track.
As anyone who has ever been to a high school pep rally knows, getting everyone to participate and show school spirit is extremely difficult. At any given time during coordinated chants, at least thirty percent of the crowd is apathetic and disinterested, which is what makes this video so remarkable.
Last Monday, the Cincinnati Bengals ran onto the field with Katy Perry’s “Roar” blaring. The music did not go over well. Visiting Steelers fans reportedly mocked Bengals supporters in the crowd, and thousands of angry people took to Twitter to bitch about the song selection. The outcry was so loud and fervent the team’s music staff actually had to respond publically and promise to go in a different direction.
Football is a rough game. It requires men to brutishly impose their wills on others. It requires emotion, aggression, intensity and consistency. What it does not require are the trendiest pop songs of the moment, regardless of how “on the mark” their choruses might seem. At least that’s what the workers in charge of the music at Cincinnati Bengals games found out on Monday
To openly talk or not to openly talk about personal life choices is a decision everyone needs to make when they get older, whether they’re famous or not. Some people are very comfortable chatting with bosses and co-workers about going out and getting drunk on the weekends or even engaging in a little pot smoking.
Katy Perry is ready to "Roar" with a new music video and the recently revealed cover for her latest album Prism. "Colorful" is probably the best adjective to apply to both the video for "Roar" and the Prism album cover, which actually obstructs Perry's face from clear view with a rainbow that shines across her face.
Music fans might want to block off the month of September, as the iTunes Festival returns in a matter of days, kicking off 30 consecutive nights of free shows this Sunday, which will be viewable for free via iTunes. The first artist to perform at London's Roundhouse for the festival is Lady Gaga, whose concert is scheduled for this Sunday night (September 1). Check out the full schedule and find out how you can watch ahead.
The MTV Video Music Awards are as much about the performances as they are about the awards themselves. The event's history is cluttered with memorable musical performances. Remember Britney Spears and the snake? Or when Eminem made it very clear that he's the real Slim Shady?
Katy Perry’s newest single, “Roar,” only dropped a little over a week ago, but it’s already crushing in sales. The track has already become the biggest debut for a single Perry has ever had via iTunes and now total sales estimates have the song projected to be Perry’s biggest single ever. This is from the girl who has put out some major singles in the past, including “Firework” and “Teenage Dream.”
There are few things the media likes more than a good old fashioned feud between two women, but both of these ladies have so much on their plates, I highly doubt they’re worried about each other. Deep down, I’m sure each would like to sell more albums than the other, but that’s just a normal element of competitiveness.
