Celebrities, Facing Summer Temperatures, Head to the Hamptons Again

Published June 27, 2014 by gossipzoo

A New York City summer is no walk in the park. Unless that park is sweltering, humid and overcrowded with confused tourists, anyway.

The heatwave may have passed Manhattan but that doesn’t mean temperatures aren’t still soaring. While most of us city dwellers continue to cling to our air conditioning units, the stars have been escaping to Long Island’s finest stretch of land for some sun, sand and surf.

Katy Perry, Suri Cruise and Hilary Duff have all been spotted in the Hamptons strolling through the streets, frolicking on the beaches and mingling at super exclusive events.

Sadly, most of us can’t spare a few million dollars on a luxurious, shore front summer home. So we’ll just have to settle with loitering in department stores and indulging in a few too many ice pops.

Stay cool, New York.

Katy Perry Reveals Fierce New ‘Roar’ Cover Art

Published June 12, 2014 by gossipzoo

Katy Perry's Roar single cover art

Katy Perry looks ready “Roar” in the just-released cover art for her upcoming single.

Surrounded by a neon animal print border, the 28-year-old singer shows off a tiger-emblazoned satin jacket for the stylized shot. We’re getting more ’80s hair band and less modern pop star from this wild art, no?

Katy is known for her candy-coated sex appeal, but she seems to be laying that persona to rest with her upcoming album, PRISM. She has already released three teasers for her new single and they all not-so-subtly tell us that we should expect a new, darker Katy Perry.

“Roar” will be unleashed on August 12th. What do you think of the cover art?

iHeartRadio Music Festival - Day 1 - Show

If you will allow me to be honest for a moment, may I just say that I am perhaps not the world’s biggest Katy Perry fan? I mean, props to her and her eight gazillion #1 singles, but something about her is just so… banal. And her recent performance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, from whence this photo came, did nothing to alter my opinion. However, that said, today’s winning captions have begun to bring me around on Miss Perry. A little, anyway.

This is how it’s done Miley!!!” – Ken

“Xena meets Minnie Mouse meets School Girl.” – Heidi

“Oops I did it again…The uncut version” – Diamond

“When I jump rope, men have fits. I’ve got a butterface, but real nice t*ts!”

Congrats to our winners! Visit our Facebook page for a new Caption Contest each and every weekday. It’s never too late to add a caption, so do so in the comments!

Katy Perry Reveals New ‘Prism’ Single to ‘Billboard,’ Recalls the Time Barbara Walters “Shaded Me”

Published March 23, 2014 by gossipzoo

Perhaps the cutest part about Katy Perry‘s Billboard cover story is that she conducted the interview while wearing boyfriend John Mayer‘s tour merchandise.

But we’ll get to that later.

To start, the cover makes us yearn for summer. (We’ll take frolicking in a field of flowers over office life any day).

Next, Perry quietly confirms in the interview that the follow-up to Prism‘s first single “Roar” will be a tribal power ballad named “Unconditionally.” There’s also a brief roundup of the Prism tracklist. For example, Perry says “Birthday” is “a song that was like what Mariah Carey would have put on her first record.”

Perry also tells Billboard about the time a scheduling hiccup made her late for a sit-down with the one and only Barbara Walters. It also happened to be the time the singer was having marriage troubles with Russell Brand.

“When I got there, I apologized immediately, but then she said to me, ‘You know, I’ve only ever waited for one other person this long, and you know who that person was? Judy Garland. You know how she turned out, right?’ I was like, ‘Oh snap! Yes, bitch!’ I think that’s the coolest thing that Barbara Walters shaded me. I just couldn’t tell her as we were sitting down for a mega-interview, ‘Hey, my marriage is falling apart. Give me a break.'”

The Billboard excerpt, posted Friday, includes a moment where Perry gushes over her beau.

“I can’t believe I’m wearing my boyfriend’s shirt!” Perry says, before going into full Mayer fangirl girlfriend mode.

“He literally is a genius, as is evident from his songwriting. I always tell him, ‘Darling, you know I’m going to have to give your mind to science after you’ve passed, because we’re going to have to understand how all these sparks work.’ We’ll be in bed, and he’ll be doing the crossword puzzle. Every night, he tries to finish it in under 10 minutes. When he puts his mind to something, he really gets it done very well. I always ask for his help.”

Prism drops Oct. 18. For much more on Katy Perry, head over to Billboard and pick up a copy of this week’s issue.

Listen To John Mayer And Katy Perry’s Duet, ‘Who You Love’

Published December 4, 2013 by gossipzoo

John Mayer and Katy Perry are more than just boyfriend and girlfriend – they’re musical collaborators.

The on again, off again lovebirds’ new duet, “Who You Love,” made its way onto the Internet on Monday. The soft ballad is a little bit country and little bit rock ‘n roll and, well, a little bit sappy.

The sleepy track is heavy on Mayer’s signature bluesy guitar, as well as the lyrics “you love who you love.” (He says that a lot.)

Perry brings in her musical flair mid-track. Her verse includes the tender words, “My boy ain’t the one that I saw coming/ And some have said his heart’s too hard to hold/ And it takes a little time but you should see him when he shines/ Cause you never wanna let the feeling go.”

It’s a sweet little ditty.

Katy Perry is already having a huge week. She released her first single off her upcoming album, PRISM (after it was leaked…), and it was just announced that she will be hitting the stage at the 2013 MTV VMAs.

Listen to her song with boyfriend John Mayer, below. Lyrics for the ballad are now available on Directlyrics.
