Every female celebrity has to deal with unwanted attention from time to time, but sometimes the aggressive fans are less creepy than the ones who take a more subtle approach. Â Earlier this week, a man walked up to Katy Perry‘s home in California and just stood there, facing the house, staring at the door.
He did not try to gain entry to the home, nor did he make any unpredictable moves, and Katy wasn’t even home at the time, but the act of standing there was creepy enough that Katy’s security people finally decided to call the police. Â When the cops showed up, they chatted with the guy for a few minutes and then asked him to leave, which he did. Â Weird.
It’s difficult to make any marriage work, but when you never get to spend time with your spouse, especially when you’re newlyweds, it can be almost unbearable. Â Katy Perry and Russell Brand are both very busy people right now, and their respective work schedules often keep them apart for long periods of time. Â But due to a rule they made for their marriage that they’d never spend more than a week apart, they’re having to do a lot of extra traveling to make sure they get to see each other.
At the moment Russell is filming on location, and Katy is away on her world tour, so it pretty much means she has to fly back to the US at least once a week in order to fulfill the promise they made to each other. Â While that’s really romantic and everything, she’s kidding herself if she thinks all that time on airplanes isn’t going to take just as much of a toll as being apart would.
So many celebrities either starve themselves to get down to 100 pounds, or if they don’t quite manage it, they just lie and say they did. Â I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen a celebrity’s weight listed as something ridiculously low, when you can plainly see that they weigh a lot more than they claim.
Katy Perry, as usual, is doing something to cut through the Hollywood BS, by revealing her actual weight publicly. Â She says that when she was still in school, she weighed 145 pounds, but now her weight fluctuates right around 130, which is perfectly normal and healthy for her height and build. Â Hopefully this will help some young women stop thinking that they need to starve themselves in order to be “Hollywood beautiful.”
It may be old-fashioned, but it’s also very sweet – Katy Perry has made the decision to change her last name to that of her husband, Russell Brand. Â In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Perry said that people were already calling her “Mrs. Brand” to get her attention, and she’s already accustomed to turning around when people say it.
Later in the interview, Katy said that she was thrilled to be married to Russell, but that she was thankful for Helen Mirren spending so much time with her husband as a movie co-star. Â Katy says Russell can be a handful, and it’s nice to have someone else to take him off her hands sometimes.
Despite Russell Brand‘s promises that his and Katy Perry’s wedding would be normal, with nothing outlandish or extravagant, it seems the couple have wed this past weekend in a tiger reserve in northern India, and that the ceremony included a procession of elephants, tigers, and camels. Â What, you mean your wedding wasn’t exactly like that?
Apparently the celebrations got a little bit out of control, and now Indian authorities are investigating claims that the Brands violated local noise pollution laws with their late-night music. Â This follows another controversy from before the wedding, in which Brand and his entourage got involved in a physical confrontation with the paparazzi while Brand and Perry were enjoying a nature safari.
The whole drama of Katie Perry having her cameo cut from Sesame Street has now been balanced out in the universe by an equal and opposite force: the pop star will take part in this year’s Christmas episode of The Simpsons. Â But unlike most guests on the show, Perry will not just be lending her vocal talents to an animated version of herself – she will actually be appearing in the flesh. Â This special episode of The Simpsons will feature puppets not too dissimilar from those seen on Sesame Street, and the action will be real rather than animated. Â Perry will play a character who gets romantically involved with bar owner Moe Syslak. Â Apparently the episode was filmed before the PBS incident, so it’s not any kind of retaliatory action, but the timing is still pretty funny.
Katy Perry recently filmed a song segment that was intended to be aired as a cameo appearance on Sesame Street, but it appears that the song has been pulled from the show due to parents’ concerns that the curvy singer’s choice of costume comes across as too sexy for a young audience. Â The clip, which features Perry singing a toned-down version of “Hot N Cold,” shows the pop songstress in a sort of strappy corset dress, with satin fabric and plunging “neckline,” revealing more cleavage than parents would have liked to have seen. Â In fact, the producers of Sesame Street received so many complaints about the footage after it leaked on YouTube, they yanked the segment entirely. Â Because of course, no one will ever see it if it’s only on YouTube. Â Seriously, if it’s on the internet, it’s never going away – Perry’s cleavage will be viral legend in a matter of hours.
