Who could have guessed that tonight’s brand new episode of Glee titled “I Kissed A Girl” would feature a cover of the Katy Perry earworm of the exact same name? Then again, at a high school where the median age of the student body hovers around 24 and the house band is always on the ready, anything is possible. And that includes a sultry performance by the gals of Glee, led by Naya Rivera and Lea Michele, complete with more cheerleading Katy Perry enthusiasts and uncomfortable reaction shots from Matthew Morrison’s Mr. Schuester. (Keep it together, man!) While the ladies’ cover of the ode to experimentation likely won’t garner the same reaction as Glee‘s other ventures into the Katy Perry catalog (namely Darren Criss’ swoon-worthy take on “Teenage Dream”) it will probably return the 2008 hit to its rightful place: On a relentlessly endless loop in your head. Check out the full clip below: READ FULL STORY
Tag: Katy Perry (41-50 of 58)
Four weeks after she partied with 14-year-old Rebecca Black in her “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” video, Katy Perry is living the teenage dream all over again — only this time, it’s with Canadian mini-heartthrob Justin Bieber. Or at least with a giant painting of him.
Perry tweeted a photo of herself Saturday posing next to what looks to be a 10-foot outdoor mural of Bieber in his signature hoodie and side-swept mop of hair. “Eatin’ corn on the cobb [sic] hangin with my adopted son, The Biebs,” reads the caption by Perry, who is pictured in a cowboy hat and a flannel shirt, snacking on an ear of corn. A quick jaunt through her Twitter feed and online tour dates suggests the mural is somewhere in scenic Calgary, Alberta, Canada. READ FULL STORY
Michele Bachmann (mis)uses Katy Perry's 'Firework' in campaign. Does it irk you when a song is misunderstood?
Over the weekend, controversial Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann entered the RightOnline conference in Minneapolis to the sounds of Katy Perry’s “Firework”, which can only lead to one reasonable explanation: Bachmann and Co., perhaps in preparation for the 4th of July, wanted to get super patriotic and play a song about fireworks.
Otherwise, it’s fairly easy to assume Bachmann was looking off to the side when someone tried to show her the music video for “Firework” and inform her that the song itself is actually Perry’s love letter to many, including homosexuals. Of course, if you know anything about Bachmann, then you know she’s hardly been supportive of the LGBT community throughout her career. (And at the same event, the representative had glitter thrown at her by an alleged LGBT activist.)
So was Bachmann’s use of the tune in her campaign insulting or a simple misunderstanding? READ FULL STORY
Earlier this month, we asked you how you think How I Met Your Mother guest star Katy Perry would compare to the show’s other seemingly endless supply of guest stars. And, based on the promos for the episode starring the “California Gurls” singer — which became available yesterday after Neil Patrick Harris tweeted them: “CBS just emailed me promos for the Katy Perry ep of HIMYM. Not sure if I’m supposed to tweet ‘emyet. Oops.” — she’ll rank somewhere between Wayne Brady and Britney Spears. (HIMYM fans know where on the spectrum those two fall.) Unlike some of the CBS sitcom’s guest stars, Perry, I’ve always felt, has great comedic timing (which I’m sure was bolstered by marrying a certain British comedian). Just watch her fluster Ann Curry on Today (at about 1:50) earlier this summer. As for the promos, watch them here. And, no, she’s not the mother.
Anyone else think Perry, from certain angles, looks like a brunette twin of The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco?
Google Zeitgeist — because we are what we search, no? In addition to searches about major political events and humanitarian crises, there was, of course, the celebrigoogling. This year’s most searched person in the United States: Justin Bieber. Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift, Eminem, and Megan Fox rounded out the top 10.As 2010 draws to a close, it’s time to turn to the
On the film front, Batman and Star Wars were the most searched for movies, which is kind of wild considering neither Batman nor Star Wars movies came out this year. (Of course, we can’t rule out Clone Wars as being responsible for the surge in searches.) Or even last year! But they are pretty awesome. Toy Story 3, Dear John, Tron, Percy Jackson, Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Avatar, and Inception were among the most-searched films as well. READ FULL STORY
To promote tonight’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (CBS, 10 p.m. ET), the world’s most beautiful models filmed a video lip-synching musical guest Katy Perry’s “Firework.” Watch it below. That seem wrong to anyone else? Maybe it’s because Perry’s video for the song shows kids with real problems — parents who verbally and physically abuse one another, issues with their bodies and sexuality, cancer, etc. — and the models’ main problem appears to be how wide to open their mouths to make the lip-syncing convincing. (That one blonde fails.) I know, I know, everyone has their problems, it’s just tough to see these women embody the underdog. (Though I have no problem imagining them making us go, “Oh, oh, oh.” Perhaps they’re what we’re supposed to aspire to.)
So while I try to disassociate “Firework” with its video (the beat does make it a killer runway song), are you ready to watch the Victoria’s Secret models strut their stuff (in a $2 million Bombshell Fantasy Bra if they’re Adriana Lima)? In addition to Katy Perry, Akon will perform. CSI: Miami‘s Adam Rodriguez will also take part in the evening as “Vic, the hip owner of Club Victoria, the hottest nightclub in town where the show is taking place.” Do you think they paid him for that gig, or did he volunteer?
