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!

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 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.

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.

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.”

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.
Paz Vega or Penelope Cruz? We just can't work it out!
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.
