The "Left Shark" incident was one of the most talked-about Super Bowl events in years, but Perry hasn't been able to make a case for the design of the costume to be trademarked.
Pop star Katy Perry has failed in a bid to register a “Left Shark” design as a trademark, in an attempt to cash in on the internet phenomenon sparked by her Super Bowl halftime show earlier this year.
Back in February, one of the singer’s two back-up dancers dressed as a cute cartoon shark seemed to have forgotten his choreography, throwing some rather erratic moves compared to the other. The incident was dubbed “Left Shark” and was the most talked-about event of the evening on social media, eclipsing the game itself and spawning a ton of internet memes.

Taylor may not have bagged any awards on Sunday night, but she did manage to keep us talking thanks to her tangled web of celeb connections.
Taylor Swift really didn't need to win any Grammy awards on Sunday evening to have an eventful night. Despite having three nominations and going home empty handed, Swift managed to steal nearly as many headlines as Kanye West on Grammy night, thanks to her always eventful personal life.
Taylor Swift had an eventful Grammy night.
Hitting the red carpet, Taylor’s first noteworthy moment came when she encountered Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O’Dell. After the camera’s panned to Swift’s dress O’Dell decided it would be appropriate to say to the signer, "I just wanted to show the legs, because as I was telling you ahead of time, I think you're going to walk home with more than just a trophy tonight. I think lots of men.”

Remember that whole Diplo, Taylor Swift, Lorde twitter incident last year? Well it seems that one's been stirred up again thanks to Diplo's latest interview.
Back in November Diplo, the music producer, DJ and rumoured boyfriend of Katy Perry, tweeted that Taylor Swift needed a kickstarter to help her get ‘a booty’. This distasteful bit of twitter attention seeking caused the singer’s BBF Lorde to retaliate ‘should we do something about your tiny penis while we're at it’ and thus the great Diplo/Lorde/Taylor Swift feud was born. Or actually it wasn't, as nothing really happened after that. Until now that is, when Diplo decided to bring it all up again in an interview with GQ.
Diplo made comments regarding Taylor Swift's 'booty' last year
Addressing Lorde’s tweet Diplo said it was, “funny, because me and Lorde, we're actually friends, and it was a funny, in-jest conversation.” Adding “I think Taylor Swift is such an impactful character, that it was because she was involved that it became really big.”
Let it be known, Ms Perry is no scrub (and neither is Bette Midler!)
Just three days after launching their Kickstarter campaign, TLC have not only raised enough money to record their fifth and final album, they’ve exceeded their goal. The group have so far raised over $210,000 in just three days, beating their target of $150,000 in 30 days.
TLC have raised more than enough to record their fifth and final album
The amazing total is thanks in part to some of the band’s famous fans including singer Katy Perry, who, according to TMZ, has donated $5,000 to the campaign. That $5,000 pledge gets Perry a slumber party with the girls where she can “put on her jammies, order some late night snacks and have some #TLCPillowTalk".
Katy Perry has been speaking ahead of her big halftime gig on February 1st.
It’s one of the most coveted gigs a performer can land, the halftime slot at the Superbowl and this year the honour has fallen on Katy Perry. But while there had been rumours that the NFL asked the artist in consideration for the 2015 gig to ‘pay to play’, Perry has said she didn't buy her place on the show.
Perry is this year's halftime performer
"I put my foot down very early in the courtship," Perry told The Associated Press "I said, 'Look guys, here's where I draw a line in the sand.' I want to be invited on my own merits and not with some fine print.”

Taylor Swift insists things are still cool with her and Selena Gomez, but what of the recent Katy Perry rumours?
As the press speculate over Taylor Swift's alleged feud with Katy Perry after a recent comment she made regarding a new song, the 'Shake It Off' star is quick to brush off rumours that she's been fighting with bestie Selena Gomez too.
Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez still firm friends
It was reported in August 2014 in various stories that Swift had spectacularly dumped her younger best friend Selena Gomez when she re-kindled her on-again off-again romance with pop bad boy Justin Bieber; a rumour that was perhaps first sparked after apparently pulling a face on seeing Gomez and Bieber kiss at the Billboard Music Awards last year. However, in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Swift has insisted the pair are still bosom buddies.
Katy Perry has said in an interview with Harper's Bazaar that her assistant often feels the brunt of her bad moods.
How does a pop princess blow off steam? With a human punching bag, of course! Well, that's according to Katy Perry.
Perry gives a candid interview with the magazine
In her new interview with Harper's Bazaar, Katy talks about how she deals with the stress of her job. She says that on a bad day, she's "quieter. I can snap a little bit, be a little bitchy to the couple of people around me. Tamra, my assistant, is my closest punching bag. But she’s strong and understands that I have a lot of pressure on me sometimes." She also says that she meditates "five to six times a week and has an “act-out day about every four to six months. I’ll have a cigarette, which I know is absolutely horrible for me, after a few drinks when I’m having a week off. I don’t do black tar heroin."

Why do many believe a tweet from Katy Perry reveals she is the person the 24 year-old songstress sings about in the song 'Bad Blood'?
Taylor Swift recently opened up about the track 'Bad Blood,' from her fifth studio album '1989,' and revealed that a unknown "enemy" celebrity was the inspiration behind it. Although the 24 year-old singer didn't name this individual, many believe it could be fellow singer Katy Perry.
Swift recently explained' Bad Blood' was about a fellow celebrity
In a very candid interview with Rolling Stone, Swift recalled how her hatred for this person began last year at an award show ceremony, where she realized they were "straight-up enemies."

Some celebrities are not afraid of sharing their more gross feats with their fans. But perhaps intentional mutilation is a step too far?
One of the biggest problems with being able to post pictures and videos straight to the internet to be seen by armies of fans is that sometimes, those videos can be cringe-inducingly vile. Case in point, Katy Perry recently posted to Instagram a video of someone shoving a needle through her nose.
Katy Perry performing on her Prismatic World Tour
The video comes to us halfway through her Prismatic World Tour as she is currently in the second leg of the tour, traveling through the US. Throughout November and December she will visit Australia and New Zealand, before spending February and March of next year in Europe.

The 29 year-old pop star explains how someone in her position would benefit dating a man who is in the public eye.
As well as being one of the most successful pop stars in the world, Katy Perry is also one of the most beautiful so there is no doubt that many men can only dream about dating her. Unfortunately this isn't going to change anytime soon as Perry thinks dating "non-famous guys" can be a negative thing.
Perry thinks there are problems with dating men who arn't in the spotlight
The 29 year-old singer's decision to not become intimate with someone who isn't in the spotlight has come from having several well-publicised relationships with famous men in the past, which includes John Mayer and Russell Brand.

Plagiarism and paganism - of the two accusations against Perry, only one can get her in legal trouble.
Katy Perry is no stranger to controversy, but she has managed to stay away from legal copyright disputes so far. Well, not anymore. The singer is being sued over her catchy single Dark Horse, which the plaintiffs claim replicated their 2006 song Joyful Noise. But that’s not even the strangest part of this story.
Katy Perry used a smoke machine and mechanical horse in one performance.
The four musicians suing Perry are a Christian rock band and claim that the pop songstress not only used their original tune, but that she also sullied it with “witchcraft, paganism, black magic and Illuminati imagery”. This case isn’t Perry’s first brush with plagiarism accusations – last year, she came under fire for the apparent similarities between her single Roar and Sara Bareilles’ Brave.

Katy Perry has been named RIAA's top digital selling artist. Who's behind her?
It only took three records for Katy Perry to cement herself as one of the biggest names in pop music history. Of course, one could argue that the superstar held that title well before the release of the third album, and they’d have the records to back it up: from May 2010 to September 2011, Perry spent 69 consecutive weeks in the top ten of Billboard’s Hot 100. She also became the first female artist to produce five number one songs from the same album with her sophomore record, Teenage Dream. Pretty impressive, right? Even though she has been earning accolades with every move she makes, perhaps the biggest is something she just achieved: Katy is officially the all-time top digital artist, according to the RIAA.
Katy Perry has moved 72 million in digital sales
"Katy Perry is a force to be reckoned with in music,” Cary Sherman, RIAA Chairman & CEO, said about the feat. "She embodies all that makes a true global superstar: the musical talent, the extraordinary drive and genuine charisma, and an intrinsic connection with her fans." During her trip to the top, she has earned 18 Gold, 16 Platinum, and 56 multi-platinum digital single awards over the span of her career. For albums, her debut record, One for the Boys, has been certified Platinum, while Teenage Dream is double-Platinum. Her most recently released record, Prism, currently stands at sales exceeding 1.1 million. Digital sales altogether land Perry at 72 million, which easily puts her at number one in front of the competition.

Hillary Clinton already had a song in mind.
Hillary Clinton might be hitting the 2016 campaign trail soon and she’s got an unlikely ally along the way. Katy Perry, songstress, label boss and cupcake enthusiast has offered to pen a campaign song for Hillary, should she decide to run.
She may have stumbled along the way, but these days Perry is all about female empowerment.

Turns out, modesty isn't Mr. Mayer's strong suit.
John Mayer has addressed the news that his ex-girlfriend Katy Perry is planning on writing songs inspired by their relationship. The singer songwriter is usually pretty guarded about his personal life but for some reason felt comfortable talking to a TMZ pap about his famous exes and how some choose to write songs about him.
There was a touch of arrogance to Mayer's words as he opened up on dating fellow pop stars. Confronted by the news that Perry has plans for a John Mayer break-up song in the vein of Taylor Swift's 'Dear John,' Mayer was bolshy.
"I actually want everybody's song to go #1," he said as a self-confessed "third wheel" whilst out with two friends. "I purposely stopped writing hits to give other people a chance to have #1 songs. I just stand to the side." "I have super strength for gang-ups, I'm fine," Mayer replied when asked if he was bothered by the songs his former lovers write about him. "That's what you're supposed to do, man, you're supposed to write songs. You're just not supposed to tell everybody you're doing it." Miaow.

Not to mention those accusations of racism...
Avril Lavigne has dropped the music video for her sugary new single, 'Hello Kitty' from new album, Avril Lavigne. The rock and dubstep fusion track will be a surprise to say the least for fans of the pop punk of her early 'Sk8er Boi' days as the 29 year-old singer-songwriter boldly marches in a new direction in her sound.
Avril Lavigne Couldn't Have Predicted The Internet Storm That Would Greet Her New Video.
The girlish and garish 'Hello Kitty' will make fans recall the singer's similar U-turn on 'Girlfriend' but instead of cheerleader stomp rap and girl-on-girl cat-fighting, the new track is altogether another feline, full of dubstep drops, vocal effects and electro buzzes. Dressed in a plastic homage to Japanese teen culture, Avril debuts a new pastel-coloured, half shaved Skrillex-style hairdo which somehow manages to make the cheesy vid all the more terrible.

Despite claiming they are just good friends, the two stars are thought to have "very strong sexual chemistry," between each other.
Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson are both single, but are they destined to become an item? The 29 year-old songstress reunited with the 27 year-old actor this past weekend when they both attended the Coachella Music Festival.

We defy anyone that tells us there isn't a top secret celebrity forging factory somewhere out there. We present Exhibit A (B, C, D, etc.)...
We’re starting to suspect that there’s only a handful of famous people, but that they each just have a few different aliases. We’ve never been able to put our finger on it until recently, but some of these celebs look far too similar to be different people. We’re considering a theory that there is a celebrity factory and they only have a few different molds to work with.
Take Penelope Cruz and Paz Vega for example. It’s hard to believe that these two aren’t at least a little bit related. We only realised recently that it’s Paz starring alongside Adam Sandler in Spanglish and not Penelope.

There's nothing we love more than finding out when celebrities are best friends, some of them aren't a secret, others will blow you away. We bet you never knew about Bette Midler and 50 Cent's budding best friendship...
Unlike Jennifer Lawrence and her rather normal best friend, Laura Simpson, celebs often pick other famous people to have as their BFFs. They all probably bump into each other at so many events that it’s difficult not to end up practically joined at the hip. Some of these celebrity BFFs you’ll already know about, some you’ll be totally surprised to hear have even met! The phrase chalk and cheese comes to mind.
Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston have been BFFs since their Monica and Rachel days. The pair have seen each other through weddings and divorces, children and various film/TV projects. “We just have fun, we laugh, we’re inseparable and it’s great”, Cox said of Aniston, while her best friend in turn dubbed her “the most dependable and loyal”. Mutual appreciation society, or what? We love it! That's how all best friends should talk about each other in our opinion.

The New Zealand singer warned against the fake perfection of Photoshop.
Today, Lorde has tried to prove to her fans that Photoshop perfection is not something to aspire to and that "flaws are ok" in selfies and photos. To illustrate her point, the singer posted two photos of herself performing at one concert on Twitter, one of which had been edited to perfection and the other showed off the young pop star's natural look.
Lorde Has Publically Spoken Out Against Her Photos Being Digitally Retouched.
"i find this curious - two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. remember flaws are ok :-)" the 17 year-old singer captioned the shot. She received an outpouring of support and gratitude from her fans, many of which are also teenagers themselves, who praised her for her realistic attitude towards her own image.

The Aussie's hit 'She Looks So Perfect' leads this week's Official Chart Update.
5 Seconds of Summer are on target to claim a number one single in the UK this week, with their hit track 'She Looks So Perfect.' The Australian boyband's catchy new single is selling extremely well in Britain with a reported 71,000 copies of their track shifted, according to the Official Charts Company. That's a lot more than the week's second best-selling single so far, fellow new entry 'Changes' by Faul & Wad Ad vs Pnau which has sold 45,000 units so far.
5 Seconds Of Summer Are Plotting A Course To UK Number One.
The poppy foursome have managed to dethrone last week's number one, Duke Dumont's 'I Got U Ft. Jax Jones,' which was relegated to third place. Martin Garrix's follow up to November's 'Animals,' 'Wizard' with Jay Hardway entered at No.4.

Katy Perry has come under fire from feminists once again, but is it really her fault?
Female celebrities just can’t get it right these days. Not only are they meant to pursue their own careers as actresses, singers or whatever else their profession may be, now they’re expected to be political activists as well. Everything they do must be related back to how much of a ‘feminist’ they are: each action is assessed for its level of feminism; each quote dissected to discuss what could possibly be seen as damaging or encouraging to young female fans.
Poor old Katy Perry just can't get it right
Katy Perry is on the receiving end this week, firstly because in 2012 she refused to call herself a feminist and now because she does...but she doesn’t really know what it means. In 2012 Katy told Billboard magazine, “I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women.” Big mistake. The feminist blogosphere erupted, slamming Katy for being a bad role model. She learned her lesson though, when asked on Sunday whether she is a feminist, Katy’s response was, “A feminist? Uh, yeah, actually. I used to not really understand what that word meant, and now that I do, it just means that I love myself as a female and I also love men.” Um, well, wrong again.

Decadence has come at a hefty price for the successful singer/songwriter.
John Mayer is taking legal action after it emerged that what he thought were vintage Rolex watches were fakes in a scam that has affected celebrities all over Hollywood. The singer-songwriter is reportedly suing jewellery dealer Robert Maron, a friend to actor Charlie Sheen, who allegedly supplied the phony timepieces.
John Mayer Is Suing A Fake Watch Dealer After Being Hoodwinked.

Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry seem to be at each other's throats on Twitter, but why and is it for real?
Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry have known each other for years. The pair have been photographed together at events since long before Miley was the peroxide party girl that she is today. That’s why we don’t know whether to take their brewing Twitter feud with a pinch of salt or if these two really are headed for a serious fall out. It all started at Miley’s recent L.A. performance when she dived in to give Perry a full on smooch, and we’re guessing, since this is Miley we’re talking about, that she meant it to be tongues and all! Katy wasn’t at all impressed or interested and immediately yanked her head away from Cyrus before laughing off Miley’s intrusive move.
Katy was taken aback from Miley's move to kiss her
It’s not the first time that Miley has expressed romantic intentions towards Perry, once admitting on Twitter: “Had dreams about @katyperry all night. dayummm that was a good time! #cherrychapstick need to c u more often sloot! Xxxxx”. Perhaps Miley was just taking the first opportunity she saw to make her dream a reality! Who cares if thousands of people were watching?

Katy Perry is as known for her fashion sense as her music, here's 10 of her most eye catching looks.
Since she broke onto the scene in 2007, Katy Perry has become pop's most fun fashionista. Always injecting a bit of quirky humour into her outfit choices, we can only admire Perry's bold red carpet choice. Even though there's far too many to choose from, we've done our best to bring you her ten best and most memorable looks (just so we can stop talking about her split from John Mayer).
Katy Perry performing in 2008
1. Our first memory of Katy Perry is as a retro styled singer who enjoyed kissing girls and flower hairclips. Straight from the beginning she showed off her more eccentric side, particularly in this mouthwatering watermelon costume/playsuit that she wore for a 2008 outdoor performance.

Let's not forget, the promo for Katy Perry's 'Dark Horse' is just a terrible video.
Katy Perry's new music video 'Dark Horse' is making headlines across the world for all the wrong reasons. An online petition has attracted nearly 60,000 signatures calling for YouTube to remove 'Dark Horse' from its site. Shazad Iqbal, of Bradford in the UK, launched the petition in the name of blasphemy, saying the treatment of an "Allah" necklace seen worn in the clip is offensive to Muslims.
Looks Like Someone Didn't Learn From The Geisha Incident: Katy Perry Is An Egyptian In 'Dark Horse.'
The pop star plays a Cleopatra-type character in the video, which is apparently supposed to be set in ancient Egypt. An array of suitors are presented to her and she reacts by zapping them all into sand with lightning. It's not the zapping that the petitioners have taken offence at, it's what she zaps.
Conflicting reports circulate as the pop stars keep quiet about their lovelife.
Katy Perry and John Mayer have broken up after 18 months of dating, according to a new rumour. E! News' source claims that Perry has split with Mayer in the last few days despite simultaneous talk that the couple are engaged and due to wed soon.
According To New Rumours, Katy Perry Has Broken Up With John Mayer?
With their busy solo careers, it's hardly surprising that the pair haven't constantly been by each other's side but E! takes their recent geographical distance as an indication that the rumor could well be true. Katy has been busying herself with fashion month activities in London and Milan whilst John has been pictured glumly strolling about New York City.

Calls of sacrilege may be misplaced...
In one of the more surreal collaborations of recent times, pop star Miley Cyrus has teamed up with The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd for a performance of the latter's hit 'Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Part 1' during the former's concert. During her Bangerz tour show at LA's Staples Center, Miley welcomed the Oklahoman rockers onstage for a cover collaboration.
Miley Cyrus Welcomed The Flaming Lips Onstage For Another Cover Song.
Considering Miley's demographic is comprised of mostly pre-teens, there's little surprise than fan footage from the event shows almost no one singing along with Coyne and Cyrus but The Flaming Lips were given a warm welcome of manic screams nonetheless. Since footage from the 'Yoshimi' cover hit the internet, reactions have been divided between those who think Miley chose a great song to cover whilst showcasing her impressive voice, and those who feel that even with Wayne and Steven present, a classic song has been butchered.
The pop star leapt offstage to plant a smooch on Perry.
Miley Cyrus frequently encourages her audience to make out with each other during her current Bangerz tour and so the pop star decided to show the ecstatic crowd how it should be done. On Saturday night at Los Angeles' famous Staples Center, Miley performed her recent hit 'Adore You' which lead to her sharing a smooch with another pop megastar.
After Encouraging The Crowd To Make Out, Miley Shared A Kiss With Katy Perry.
Katy Perry, who was dancing away in the audience in front of the stage during 'Adore You,' was met by a surprise kiss from Miley, who leapt from the stage. Perry rushed forward and the pair locked lips before Miley squealed with delight and got back onstage to perform.
As Lorde wins the BRIT award for Best International Female we take a closer look at the 17 year old New Zealand pop sensation.
There’s been a ton of buzz around New Zealand singer and songwriter, Lorde, since her first EP The Love Club came out in November 2012. The first single off the EP, Royals, made it to number one in the pop charts in both New Zealand and the US, which means that the 17 year old pop star (yes, she’s just 17 years old which is something to think about for all of us out there who are much older and still don’t have any number one singles) can now proudly claim to be the first New Zealander ever to have topped the US charts.
Lorde doesn't bother dressing up to the nines like the average teenage popstar
But who is Lorde? The sultry star seemingly popped up out of nowhere and is now picking up awards and accolades left, right and centre, including last night winning the much coveted BRIT award for Best International Female before going on to then party the night away alongside fellow pop stars Katy Perry and Ellie Goulding.

A look at all of the reasons Katy Perry deserves to be named Elle's Woman of the Year 2014.
Katy Perry has been named Elle Woman of the Year at the 2014 Elle Style Awards. Ms. Perry undeniably stole the show, looking fabulous as she accepted the award wearing a stunning Vivienne Westwood rose print dress. Kylie Minogue, who has won the award twice herself in the past decade, presented Katy with the award. Check out all our pictures from the Elle Style Awards.
Katy looked stunning wearing a corseted Vivienne Westwood rose print gown
The chart topping pop starlet is certainly deserving of her gong, having barely sat down to take a breather in 2013. Katy originally burst onto the scene in 2008 with her catchy hit I Kissed A Girl and has been a regular at the top of the charts ever since. Her whirlwind marriage to Russell Brand may have not worked out, but Katy didn’t let it slow her down. 2013 may have been Katy’s best year so far, and there’s a long list of reasons we can see that Elle had for choosing her to be their Woman of the Year!

Katy Perry talks life, love and letting go of career blunders in this month's issue of GQ.
There’s nothing better for getting you through the week than a glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous and Katy Perry, lovable ball of mayhem that she is, has given us just that this week with her new interview in GQ. Besides the sultry photoshoot published along with the interview, Perry also bares her soul in some unusually personal answers.
Underneath the layers of makeup and over-the-top outfits, it sounds like Perry really cares about her music.
The GQ interview was done just before Perry’s American Music Awards performance from 2013 – the one, where she dressed up like a geisha and ignited a string of accusations in cultural appropriation. She defends her choices with the classic performer excuse – she did it for her art, apparently: “All I was trying to do is just give a very beautiful performance about a place that I have so much love for and find so much beauty in, and that was exactly where I was coming from, with no other thought besides it.”

The singer revealed her belief in extraterrestrial beings in an interview for GQ, but she is not alone in thinking that we are not alone
Katy Perry appeared as the cover girl for the February issue of GQ magazine, where amongst other things, she revealed that she genuinely believes in extraterrestrial beings and that we are not alone. She also spoke about praying for large breasts, regretting that prayer in later life, her dislike of cannabis, losing her virginity, the beginnings of her career and much more, but it was her other worldly beliefs that has caught on.
Katy believes that we are not alone
"I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form?" she questioned. "I mean, if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I'm going to ask him that question. It just hasn't been appropriate yet."
