We’re all for being fashion-forward here at Scandalist, and certainly expect our pop stars to err on the side of crazy when it comes to style. But Katy Perry, words fail us! How can the girl who wore the cute Obama dress have sunk to such leopard-print lows in only a few months? The shade of pink can only be described as “Headache Fuschia” and we wouldn’t trust ourselves not to get an electric shock from those shiny man-made fibers on her coat. Bring back the Minnie Mouse ears, all is forgiven. [Photo: Splash News Online]
She’s already reportedly turned down advice from Jessica Simpson, but will Rihanna listen to her new friend Katy Perry? Apparently the two have recently become “inseparable” friends and have been out together on girlie nights. (When? Where? Hmmm.)
“Katy was there when Rihanna needed her the most and as terrible as the stuff with Chris is, at least one good thing has come of it,” it’s reported. Although we’ve seen little evidence (so far) of this friendship and Rihanna’s still behaving in a confusing manner after the Chris Brown scandal, surely someone as feisty and strong as La Perry can only be a good addition to the camp?

Katy Perry strips down and puts on a negligee for the April issue of Esquire. In the mag, Katy dishes about what kind of man she is looking for and her obsession with bananas.
On what she is looking for in a guy now that she is single: “I have a soft spot for musicians. If a man could ride this roller coaster with me and come out alive, then I guess we’d deserve each other’s company. But I don’t really have the right energy to be with somebody right now, because when I love somebody, I love somebody. Like, I want to marry them. I don’t date around. I haven’t been on a date.”
On bananas: “I always wanted to suspend from the ceiling in a twirling banana. I’m going to be inside the banana. So the banana drops into a fruit bowl with the other sparkling, glorious fruit, and their tops pop off and dancers come out and help peel me out of the banana. I have a fascination with fruit.”
Her Jesus tattoo: “I got that when I was eighteen, on the Sunset Strip. I was with my boyfriend, and I just wanted to get something so I would always remember where I came from.” [Source, Photo: Esquire]
When she’s not busy wearing so-kooky-it-hurts outfits, Katy Perry likes to scare the crap out of men. Well, if making threats to chop them up counts (and we think it does), any sensible guys fantasizing that the single fox could be their next conquest will be looking somewhere else now.
“We will love you so much, make you beans on toast and butter your bread. But if you break our heart, we will take the butter knife and cut you into little pieces and put you in the freezer,” she says.
Mmm, ready-to-microwave-ex-boyfriend! Yummy. Has anyone seen Travis McCoy recently?
We’re just sayin’ – we’re in a recession, people are getting laid off, and Katy Perry still insists on prancing around dressed like Minnie Mouse. It’s campy crap like this (and Lady Gaga wearing a bow of hair on her head) that swung the cultural pendulum toward grunge in the early 90s. We’re praying Katy suffers the same fate of C&C Music Factory – eternal obscurity. [Photo: GettyImages]
Lily Allen is one of our favorite celebrities to follow on Twitter, as she’s constantly telling people (mainly Perez Hilton) to eff off and mocking other stars on her site. Most recently she posted this picture of her new tattoo (it reads “shhhh” on her finger) which she reportedly got at 2AM this morning in West Hollywood with Lindsay Lohan. Yep, when you roll with Lohan, you live on the edge.
Lily also seems to be mocking frenemy Katy Perry on her Twitter page, after the American singer snagged a Brit award in London last night and then vomited immediately after. Katy posted on her blog about her sick spell (seriously, these girls love to be online), writing “F*cking flu. I guess we are all human. I can’t wait to come back to the brits next year… and not puke.”
Around the same time, Lily twittered, “Oh my god , bad lunch, can’t stop vomiting.” Was she just making fun of her American rival, or did they eat the same bad batch of beans and toast? [Photo: LilyAllen]
We’re busy live blogging the Brit Awards (check it out here!) which is the UK’s version of our Grammys – minus two young pop stars engaged in a domestic battle, natch. Scandalist has rounded up pics of the night’s best fashion moments – as well as our favorite faux pas – for you to ogle at below. A few highlights thus far:
- Breast cancer survivor Kylie Minogue‘s outfit – Yay!
- Kanye West pal Estelle‘s get-up – Nay.
- Natalie Imbruglia‘s botoxed face – Nothing’s right. We’re torn.
Check out pics from the red carpet and show below!
Update: Oh. They’re not doing it. On her blog, Katy laughs at us and our silly little heads for even imagining such a thing. “oh kittens! It’s two pseudo famous people sitting next to each otherÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ doesn’t mean we were bumping uglies. You know I don’t just do that with anyone! … I was there celebrating a really fun show and a boozy valentines with all my good friends. We were like a group of 25! Benji is a nice young fellow, but my heart really belongs to kitty purry/markus molinari,” she writes. Shame.
No, Katy Perry, no! Not Paris Hilton’s sloppy seconds! (Excuse us). But our favorite singer-“comedian” was spotted getting very very giggly and cozy indeed with Benji Madden over the weekend. The pair were in Las Vegas at her Hard Rock Hotel’s Wasted Space gig, and spent time later together at Lavo nightclub, allegedly leaving together at 2am via a back exit.
“They were with friends but you could definitely tell they were on a date. There wasn’t any public making-out but they were very “friendly” with each other,” a source tells OK magazine.
The Grammys threw its best awards show in recent memory last night — despite last-minute cancellations by Chris Brown and Rihanna, both of whom were scheduled to perform. Jennifer Hudson‘s highly emotional singing helped fill the void as did an excellent set by a very pregant M.I.A. But we loved this year’s show mostly because the celebrities looked so damn hot! Could anyone have sexier legs than Carrie Underwood? Who would make a better object of a 1920s-inspired wet dream than Katy Perry? Even nine-months-pregnant M.I.A. got our blood boiling and stoked our imaginations. Yeah, we’re that dirty. Check out our Top 10 Most Hideous Grammy Outfits, then feast your eyes on our Hottest Grammy GWILFS …
Is it wrong for us to be attracted to a woman who is nine months pregnant and wearing a cow costume? If so, we’re worried about the salvation of our souls. Oh Mamma MIA!
9. Paris Hilton
They say she’s a skank, but Paris Hilton looks 100% sophisticated and sexy to us.
