Perry posted an image of Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction, to illustrate her "current mood" on Instagram, which was met with outrage from her Indian fans.
Pop megastar Katy Perry has been vociferously criticised by her Indian fans for posting a picture of the Hindu goddess Kali on Instagram for use as a meme.
The 32 year old pop star, who was recently spotted living it up in the crowd at Coachella, posted a picture of the Hindu goddess of destruction Kali, who is also associated with love and sexuality, with a caption reading “current mood”.
Quickly, she was called out by fans for “cultural misappropriation” of a sacred icon, and was asked to take it down.
Glastonbury Festival confirmed an additional 83 acts on top of the three already-announced headliners on Thursday.
Glastonbury Festival has announced the first tranche of artists to be playing at Worthy Farm this year, confirming 83 acts in addition to the three main headliners of Ed Sheeran, Radiohead and Foo Fighters.
Among the dozens of confirmed acts announced on Thursday (March 30th) are some surprisingly massive names, not least in the shape of pop royalty Katy Perry and Scottish rock titans Biffy Clyro who could expect to headline virtually any other festival in the world.
A large number of music veterans and heroes of yesteryear are also scheduled to make appearances. Former Bee Gee Barry Gibb is set to take the traditional Sunday afternoon ‘legend’ slot, filled by Madness, Lionel Richie and Dolly Parton in the previous three editions of Glastonbury.
Katy Perry is ''very attracted'' to the British accent, and has even tried a number of traditional English food.

The 32-year-old singer has recently broken up with boyfriend Orlando Bloom and was engaged to Russell Brand previously, and the star has revealed she easily falls for English men because she likes the sound of their ''posh'' voices.
Speaking to Nick Grimshaw on his BBC Radio One Breakfast Show, the blonde beauty said: ''Many of my English boyfriends that I've had along the way (have made them).

Bob Marley's grandson has collaborated with Kate Perry on her new single.
Having appeared on Katy Perry's most recent single 'Chained to the Rhythm', the artist on everyone's lips is the successor of a legend: Skip Marley. He's barely out of his teens, but his music career already looks a promising one - as much as it was also predictable.
Introducing Bob's grandson Skip Marley
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Skip is the 20-year-old son of Cedella Marley - which in turn makes him the grandson of arguably the most famous reggae star in the history of music, Bob Marley. It was only fate, then, that he should follow in his late grandfather's footsteps and pursue music.

Katy Perry - Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala - Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology at the Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York City, New York, United States - Monday 2nd May 2016
Though Derek and Hansel have left the world of fashion modelling behind them, a part of both of them still has the wish to return to the stage and once again be crowned as the king of the runway. When some of the world's most famous celebrities are found murdered (all of whom have died pulling Derek's trademark Blue Steel pout) Interpol decide to recruit the two fashion veterans in a bid to infiltrate the current world of modelling - an industry that's evolved beyond the one they were originally accustom to.

Perry's Prismatic world tour constituted the bulk of her earnings, which were just under $88 million in the 12-month period measured.
Katy Perry has edged out her fierce rival Taylor Swift to be named as the highest-earning female musician of 2015, with estimated income of $88 million in a 12-month period, according to the annual article by Forbes.
Perry’s Prismatic world tour accounted for the substantial part of her earnings, as she took approximately $1.3 million on every stop on the massive haul. Sponsorship deals tied in with the tour also added to this number, with deals with cosmetics brand Covergirl and fashion accessories company Claire’s as well as her fragrances released in conjunction with Coty.

Perry joined Madonna onstage in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, and brought her ultimate fan-girl with her.
Sparks flew when Katy Perry joined Madonna onstage on the latest stop on her Rebel Heart tour in Los Angeles this week, as the two pop titans performed together and got rather close with a few raunchy dance moves.
It’s fair to say that 31 year old Perry brought out her inner fan-girl as Madonna invited her to the stage at The Forum in Inglewood, L.A. on Tuesday evening (October 27th). They joined forces for a rendition of Madge’s ‘Unapologetic B****’, and got rather intimate with their twerking, dipping their butts low and grinding at one point.

In the words of N'Sync, 'what's the deal with this pop life and when is it gonna fade out?' Well, if this three-cd compilation is anything to go by, then the answer is: not anytime soon. Ironically, the clean-cut American quintet isn't actually among the 66 artists featured across this album.
Kicking off with Little Mix's recent single Black Magic, the tracks here span almost a 10-year period, from present hits back to Take That's 2006 smash Rule The World. Pop as a genre arguably has been around for an awful lot longer than a decade, but perhaps the folks at Now! who put this together felt it was easier to focus on a specific time frame, or that the age of people they're expecting to purchase this record aren't old enough to remember anything prior to this period. Either way, this compilation demonstrates that there have been both a huge amount of both ridiculously catchy and ridiculously awful songs that have captured the public's attention in the past few years.
It's almost a prerequisite that Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' Uptown Funk is included, and it certainly reminds you why the catchy hooks and memorable lyrics of pop songs help the genre dominate the music industry. Followed by Roar from Ms. Katy Perry, Sexy And I Know It by LMFAO, CeeLo Green's Forget You, Happy by Pharrell Williams and Lady Gaga telling us about her Bad Romance, there's certainly enough hits to get you smiling and singing along (however much you try to resist). There's also songs in this mix that are questionable as pop and could easily be classed in other genres - there's Lean On from Major Lazer x DJ Snake, a blend of dancehall/electronica; the dreamy indie synths of MGMT's Kids; and Rudimental ft. John Newman's drum and bass tones of Feel The Love to name a few. However, pop or not it's no bad thing these have been included, as they're all absolutely fantastic tracks.

She was kissed by a girl - and didn't like it!
Katy Perry was left slightly surprised after she invited a fan up to the stage during one of her songs, who then proceeded to spend most of her time groping the singer.
Perry was performing a gig at the Rock In Rio festival in Brazil as part of her Prismatic World Tour on Sunday night (September 27th), and before one of the tracks she stopped to pick out a young female fan, identified by some as being called ‘Rayane’, from the front row to the stage. However, the fan seemed generally a bit out of it, and couldn’t stop touching her idol.

The goldmine that is Taylor Swift's '1989' is being plundered for yet another single.

The judge ruled that the nuns, who opposed the Archbishop's sale to Perry, did not have the right to make a separate deal with a real estate developer, but deferred the ultimate sale to church law.
There’s been mixed news for Katy Perry in the legal battle concerning a former convent in Los Angeles that she wishes to purchase, with a ruling handed down on Thursday in favour of the archbishop (who wants to sell to her) over the order of nuns who had arranged a deal with another purchaser.
While this is positive news for her, the judge in the case ultimately deferred the decision over the actual sale of the property, ruling that church law had jurisdiction over sale of the property, rather than civil law.
Katy Perry received mixed news in the convent court case judgment
The case over who has the right to sell prime piece of L.A. real estate - in which Perry is one of the prospective buyers - goes before a court on Thursday (July 30th).
The bizarre legal battle between two nuns and an archbishop over a Los Angeles hilltop convent that the latter wants to sell to pop megastar Katy Perry is to go to court today.
An order of nuns owns the multi-million dollar property in the hills surrounding L.A., and claims that it has sold it to a businesswoman, Dana Hollister, who intends to convert it into a 60-room boutique hotel with a restaurant and bar, for $10 million. However, L.A. Archbishop Jose Gomez claims that it wasn’t theirs to sell in the first place, that the property actually belongs to the diocese and that Perry’s offer amounts to a better deal.

Taylor Swift is well-known for having close female friendships but there’s allegedly one woman in the music industry who she doesn’t get on well with: Katy Perry. Swift appeared to reference their feud during a recent performance, bringing a shark dancer (something Perry has done in the past) out on stage.
Taylor Swift – or some of her more mischievous backing dancers - appeared to reference her alleged feud with Katy Perry whilst performing on stage. Swift is currently on her 1989 tour and during her performance of ‘Bad Blood’ in Foxborough, Massachusetts, a toy shark appeared behind her on stage.

Perry had a few interesting comments on Swift's reactions, following the slight she perceived in Minaj's complaints about bias in the music industry.
More feathers are flying in the Nicki Minaj v Taylor Swift Twitter saga, with Katy Perry wading into the argument with some pretty subtext-heavy comments that all but confirm the subject matter of Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ video.
Perry called out Swift’s reaction to Nicki Minaj’s complaints to not receiving enough MTV Video Music Awards nominations as ironic. “Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman…” she said, a tweet quickly favorited by Minaj.

Katy Perry is reportedly trying to buy a former convent, but two ex-residents just aren't having it.
Katy Perry has found herself caught up in a bizarre property dispute, featuring two nuns, an Archbishop and a restauranteur. It all started when Perry decided she wanted to buy a former covent in Los Feliz, an affluent section of Los Angeles, but found her proposal being rejected by two former residents, Sister Rita Callanan and Sister Catherine Rose Holzman.
Katy Perry is currently in a property dispute with two L.A. nuns.
The two nuns, who have not lived in the property since 2011, would reportedly rather sell the 8-acre property to restaurateur Dana Hollister, who plans to turn it into a 60-room boutique hotel with a restaurant and bar, according to court papers.
