Katy Perry
Katy Perry attended the NRJ Music Awards at Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France, this weekend wearing an unusual gold and white dress.

The gown appeared to have detachable sleeves and was short in the front and long in the back (just like a "mullet" hairstyle). She wore golden pumps and pulled her hair back into a long braid.

The singer performed at the award show and experienced technical difficulties during her set. She had to stop halfway through because she was out of sync with the audio and background screens. The host of the show asked her to "restart" her performance.

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

December 9th, 2013 8:50pm EST
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though! This year,  I find myself...

Katy Perry made both a charitable and fashion statement at the 9th Annual United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) Snowflake Ball in New York City on Tuesday.

28 Celebrities Who Use Stage Names

28 Celebrities Who Use Stage Names
Many celebrities have changed their names before they hit it big, and for many reasons. Let's take a look at some of the biggest stars who didn't take their birth name to Hollywood.

Katy Hudson didn't want to be confused with Kate Hudson, so she took her mother's maiden name and became Katy Perry.

Oprah Winfrey's name is iconic, but it's not actually her real name. It's Orpha, after the biblical figure. However, so many people mispronounced her name while she was growing up that the mispronunciation stuck.

Barry Manilow was born Barry Alan Pincus. He took his mother's maiden name...

Katy Perry EMAs
Katy Perry is either playing a prank on the media or doesn't care if we think her sparkling diamond ring is from rumored fiancé John Mayer.

Perry attended the MTV EMAs in Amsterdam on Sunday and was showing off a sparkling diamond ring on her ring finger. It's not the first time we've seen the ring; she wore it during her trip to Japan and in the photos she shared from the country.

Mayer and Perry would have been together for a year as of this summer, but the couple split in March before trying to make it work again weeks later.

Perry is also wearing a ring on her left ring finger, which has us wondering if she's letting us know something or if it was part of the costume. Could it an engagement ring from John Mayer?

Australian Government Worried That Katy Perry's 'Prism' Is A Potential Biohazard

November 5th, 2013 11:21pm EST
Katy Perry
Could Katy Perry's latest album, "PRISM," be so bad that the Australian government has come out and said it's possibly a biohazard?

Some might think so, but in reality the nation's Department of Agriculture has said that the deluxe version of the album, which comes with a packet of seeds, wasn't cleared with the government first, and strict rules could leave fans who buy the album outside of Australia high and dry.

The Australian version of the album includes a packet of seeds for the Swan River Daisy, a plant native to Western Australia, but fans who get the album elsewhere face confisca...

Katy Perry earns her second consecutive no. 1 album with PRISM, which sold an impressive 286,000 copies.  Just how much swag does my girl Ms. Perry have? A lot as Teenage Dream sold 192,000 copies when it bowed at the penthouse back in 2010.  After Perry’s big week, things suck… badly.  Fifth Harmony’s EP Better Together moves 28,000 copies, good for a no. 6 bow.  DJ Khaled’s Suffering From Success is an ironic title given a rather tepid showing of 27,000 copies at no. 7.  AFI lands at no. 9 with 25,000 copies of Burials.  Let me just say the promotion was not that hot for the set, and the ...
