Katy Perry’s iridescent gown and too-dark lipstick earned her a spot on our worst-dressed list at last night’s Billboard Music Awards. But we neglected to mention that she accessorized the over-the-top ensemble with the cutest of all arm candy: her 91-year-old grandmother, Ann Hudson. Seriously, how much do you adore her bedazzled walking stick?
Anyway, Ann’s presence as Katy’s date makes a lot of sense when you take into account the rumors that she broke up with her very short-term boyfriend, Florence + the Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd. We only just learned they were dating at Coachella last month! “It wasn’t that serious,” a source told Us Weekly of their hookup and breakup. “It’s not a nasty thing and they are still talking, but Katy told him to do his thing and they’ll talk soon.”
Shocking news, we know. But we only mention this because this news comes mere days after Russell Brand admitted on Ellen that he still loves his ex-wife and then proceeded to make our wombs ache with his adorable interaction with Rosie and Sophia Grace. Can we call that a coincidence? Sure. But then we wouldn’t be the hopeless romantics you know we are.
