A cat lady: You know her as the old woman who lives a life of seclusion save for an abundance of furry, feline friends. Her pastimes include knitting with her kittens, watching re-runs of old soap operas, and seldom leaving the house. But this, my friends, is merely a misconstrued stereotype. Some of Tinseltown’s most purrfect celebrities are certifiably crazy about their cats. And you don’t see them knitting sweaters and eating cat food… Read more…
Katy Perry‘s #TBT will have you thinking about your awkward teenage years, Pretty Little Liars’ Ashley Benson lands a huge modeling gig and the cast of Full House reunites for Uncle Joey’s wedding.
One thing we can’t help but wonder when we see someone rocking a full set of grillz in their mouth is: what the hell does that taste like? Is that person just walking around with the tang of metal in their mouths? As far back as we can remember, “metal mouth” was a schoolyard taunt for teenagers with braces, but now it’s become something of a fashion statement, as grillz have become increasingly popular amongst the rich and famous.
Get ready to pick yourÃ‚Â eyebrow off the top off your forehead, because according a new interview Katy Perry once considered breast reduction. Says Perry, as a 13-year-old, “I had really bad back problems and was a little bit thicker. Then I grew up and lost the baby fat and said, ‘Hey, this isn’t all that bad.'” Wow, and to think: Katy could have ended up some boring ol’ nuclear physicist if she had gone through with reducing her jiggle. Thank the gods she didn’t take them down a cup size; how would adolescent boys know when to enter puberty? From whence would the nation’s breast-mounted whip cream lasers flow? Imagining the possibilities is like It’s A Wonderful Life, but with nipples. Seriously though, Katy, America needs those jugs almost as much as your career needs them. Well, everywhere in America except Sesame Street.
When chatting about the fitted clothes worn during a photo shoot, Katy explained, “I’ll tell you about my boobs and fashion. It can be hard to wear those looks because they’re best on people who have no curves or thighs. I don’t have a Kate Moss body, but I’m very proud and happy with mine.” Ah yes, how hard it must be to be happy with KATY PERRY’S PERFECTÃ‚Â BODY. What a struggle Perry must go through each morning as she pulls on a new latex minidress and faces the new day. Seriously, we just gained 5 pounds of rage weight just thinking about it (admission: it was actually from eating fudge).
Though…would you mind if we pointed out the elephant in the room here? Or rather, the two saline elephants jammed into the skin-tight rhinestone bustier? Are we honestly supposed to believe that Perry was just naturally build like Jessica Rabbit without a boost from a medical profession? IT CANNOT BE TRUE.Ã‚Â Now if you’ll excuse us, this rage fudge isn’t going to eat itself.
Watch out paparazzi! Russell Brand is looking to shove dudes and smash cameras, and not even the law can’t stop him! Arrested for battery following a run-in with a photographer he claims was taking an upskirt of lady friend Katy Perry, it turns out Russell Brand won’t be charged with anything. Now if you want to see Katy Perry’s underwear, you’ll just have to look at EVERY CONCERT PHOTO OF KATY PERRY EVER TAKEN.
Says the L.A. City Attorney’s Office spokesman Frank Mateljan of the dismissal, “This is the only action as of now. Based on the info, it has been determined that this is the most appropriate action at this time.” Mateljan then clutched his giant portfolio of Katy Perry panty pictures to his chest and gave a big wink. Oddly, while Brand won’t be thrown in the clink anytime soon, he must meet the photographer who put him under citizen’s arrest in court on Nov. 19, either to hug it out or be yelled at by a judge, we’re not sure. Wow, don’t let people know they can put unruly celebs under citizen arrest. Lindsay Lohan won’t be able to make it to the mailbox without being slide-tackled. [Photo: Getty Images]
Gaga? Who hated on Lady Gaga? Oh, you just assumed that Katy Perry was talking about the “Alejandro” video when she tweeted “Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke.” According to Perry, she was talking about other topical stuff like, you know, Madonna’s on-stage crucifixion in 2006. “[People think] I’m a very hypocritical person, ‘How do you say that and [sing], ‘I Kissed a Girl?’ Spirituality and sexuality are two separate things,” she (kind of) explained on French radio earlier this week. “When you decide to put it into the same subject, it gets interesting for some people.” Oh, so what was “cheap” is “interesting” now? You just prefer the degradation of women to the degradation of religion? Want to complete your backpedal with an “imo” caveat, Katy? “Some people have different view points.” Thanks!
Katy showed off her viewpoints outside her hotel in NYC yesterday, wearing a short animal-print dress totally suitable for Sunday service. See more photos in the gallery below.

Farting seems to be a rather integral part of Katy Perry‘s life. Lady Gaga‘s Alejandro video premiered yesterday and Miz Perry took to her Twitter to reprimand, “Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke.” And now fiance Russell Brand, gives the statement a lot more pong, saying that Perry herself is a “flatulence factory”.
He was on Nick Cannon‘s Rollin’ radio show this morning, and revealed some facts we’re guessing he’s going to be in a lot of trouble for. “That woman is like a flatulence factory,” he said adding, “The pop hits that she fires out of her mouth are nothing compared to what comes out the other end of her!”
He also went on to say that he’s sick of her spreading rumours about him and that everything she says is a lie. Brand insists he can’t retaliate without looking like the bad guy. He stated, “Don’t trust that woman. You know what women are! You can’t trust them. She’s a bad person! She goes around spreading rumours about me and I have to go clean up the mess afterwards! I don’t know if your woman does the same thing. She says a lot of freaky sutff, and out of respect, I can’t really play by the same rules!”
And Nick Cannon agreed saying wifey Mariah Carey often does the same. She apparently got into the habit of calling up his radio show to reveal humiliating fiction about his life. He empathized, “I’m right there with you. I thank you for clearing that up. My wife actually calls in to radio station and disguises her voice and calls in and says that I love porn, and crazy things like that so I’m right there with you. I feel your pain!”
They decided to retaliate. The plan is to make up some rumors about Perry and Carey! While Brand wanted to fib saying they liked going to illegal dog fights, Nick took it up a notch. He said, “Let’s start some rumours about Mariah and Katy – that would be hot!” You two realise that you’ve got to go home to them, right?

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards included some style highlights (Kristen Stewart‘s D&G mini, Sandra Bullock‘s mile-high Louboutins, Whitney Port‘s Yigal Azrouël yellow dress), but for every perfect 10, a belly flop lurked within arm’s reach. What was Katy Perry thinking?! Who let Lindsay Lohan out of the house? And would the real Christina Aguilera please stand up?! Here are our Top 10 WTF fashion moments from the star-filled evening.
10. Katy Perry
Offense #1: Katy Perry’s bright blue wig clashes with her bright yellow nails. Add hundreds of shiny rhinestones to the equation and you get something resembling a human sparkler.
Plus Side: She still looks hot!
9. Snowboarder Shaun White
Offense #1: We know the 60s and 70s are in style, but do we really want to see man nipple on our MTV Movie Awards red carpet? Leave the bare-chested vest to the gang members of 1979’s The Warriors.
Offense #2: We respect that Shaun’s hair has become iconic, but it was iconic for Robert Plant too!
Plus Side: We’d like Shaun’s vest if there were a shirt underneath it.

Now that their engagement is officially confirmed, we wanted to know exactly what happened when Russell Brand proposed to Katy Perry. We already knew the pair was vacationing in India when the question was popped, but People found out that Russell, ever the romantic, planned an elaborate feast for Katy on the night of their engagement.
The couple were staying at the Taj Rambagh Palace hotel in Jaipur, India, and Russell coordinated with the hotel to prepare a night to remember. He and Katy arrived for their meal on a horse and carriage (aww!), ate dinner in a candlelit garden (ooh!), watched midnight fireworks while sitting on an elephant (er, ok), and then Katy found her engagement ring which Russell had hidden in flowers (to make up for the elephant thing). Brand’s rep confirmed that he bought the right before Christmas at Cartier, but would not confirm any wedding details just yet. [Photo: GettyImages]
Where’s the best place to talk fashion? On the runway, of course! A Jean Paul Gaultier clad Rihanna and fresh-from Russell Brand‘s pad in London Katy Perry swapped fashion tips while sitting across the runway from each other at the designer’s Paris fashion show. “I love your jacket,” Katy told Riri while sitting across from each other in the front rows at the show. Rihanna smiled back and pointed towards the backstage where Jean Paul was before the show began.
Katy, Rihanna, as well as Dita Von Teese and French screen legend Catherine Deneuve took in the designer’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection, which resurrected Madonna’s 80’s cone bra and featured silk peach jackets paired with glittery black and white leggings, green silk trenchcoats, and all denim jumpsuits, and long flowy orange and white dresses. “Gaultier was FAB!” Dita wrote on her Twitter after the show. “Lots of new ways to wear luscious peach satin circle-stitched bullet bras. LOVED IT!”
“TRUE!” Katy Twittered back.
Luckily for TheFABlife, we nabbed a coveted front row seat after an usher grabbed us from the standing section and placed us in an empty seat right in the front row, where we could see all the action from the best row in the house, right across from Janet Jackson, who smiled when the DJ played her late brother Michael Jackson‘s song “Bad”! It MUST have been the crushed velvet Margi Kent dress and Tuleste jewels we were wearing. After the show, France 5 even interviewed us about our opinion of the show. Magical! [Photo: Getty Images]
