Well it looks like someone in Hollywood felt the world is ready for The Smurfs in 3D, which had it’s premiere this weekend in Los Angeles. While we’re not quite sure how to feel about this, one thing is clear: Katy Perry looked Smurfin’ Smurftastic as she strutted down the red (er, blue) carpet. The California gurl played cartoon heart-throb Smurfette, the only female Smurf in the Smurf Village and envy of every Smurf in the land. We’re not sure if Katy dyed her hair blonde to get even closer to her cartoon alter ego (which she displayed proudly on her dress), but we’re diggin the new ‘do.
What do you think? Let us know! And while you’re at it, check out more pics of Neil Patrick Harris, Sofia Vergara and more Smurf stars in the gallery below!
Calling our crush and hanging up the phone, sitting on our grandma’s couch, lounging fully dressed by the pool since it’s still too cold to go in: Katy Perry’s David LaChapelle photos for ghd capture our suburban teenage reality perfectly, rather than our teenage dream. Only in our dreams would we have hair as banging as Katy’s, which the singer recognizes by teaming up with the ghd hair care line: so lush, so shiny, so not constantly getting caught in our braces when we laugh. “Katy is the epitome of modern fashion and styling. Her unique, ever changing looks are the envy of style devotees around the world,” ghd CEO Paul Stoneham said. “Katy completely embodies ghd’s spirit of female transformation and empowerment, as she is recognised as a cutting edge style icon unafraid to push fashion and beauty boundaries.” Throw in another photo of Perry failing to pass her driving test, and it would be like looking at an infinitely more fabulous version of our yearbook.
Here’s some news we really don’t want to believe (and it does come from Life & Style Magazine, so we don’t necessarily have to). The magazine reports that Katy Perry and Russell Brand‘s new marriage is already on the rocks after just three short months of wedded bliss. A source says that the pair have sought out couples therapy because they spend so little time together due to their busy careers. The source says that before Katy began her “California Gurls” tour this January, she “started asking friends to recommend a marriage counselor,” which actually sounds pretty healthy to us if she’s preemptively trying to work on things before they even spend time apart.
If you’re looking forward to seeing Katy Perry guest-star on How I Met Your Mother, might we suggest you don’t watch this preview clip? The unnervingly silent footage of Perry doesn’t have a laugh track added in yet. We never noticed all of the long, humiliating pauses between the actor’s lines before. Just like we imagine a real conversation with Katy Perry would have!
Perry stops by the show to play cousin Honey, who is seduced at the speed of light by Neil Patrick Harris. We mean, NPH’s character Barney…yeah, sure, of course that’s what we mean. Katy seems to be giving it her all, but since her character’s personality consists of “having spectacular cleavage,” “acting like a moron” and “having spectacular cleavage,” we doubt she’s going to pull down an Emmy for this one. Perry’s other memorable acting turns have included a guest spot on Seasame Street and on The Simpsons, where she destroyed America’s childhood. Maybe you’d better stick to performing at the Grammys, Katy; at least there you know your large talents will be appreciated.
Say what you want about Katy Perry: she’s never boring to look at it…or smell, apparently. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Katy Perry discusses her California Dreams world tour starting February 20. “It’s going to smell like you’re in cotton candy heaven. It’s a fun little nuance,” Katy explains. “I am a woman of detail, and you will be seeing that — even down to the 15 outfit changes I’m doing.” As if smelling like a clown’s boudoir wasn’t enough, the Firework singer will also be throwing a few slabs of beef on the BBQ…or into the audience; it’s unclear. “I have this whole thing in my show that is about candy and cupcakes and meat. It’s both really sweet and shocking, but not in a sexual way,” she reveals. Well, maybe not to you, Katy, but everybody’s different!
While Katy might have plans to dance out in a onesie made entirely of honey-baked ham, she’s only going to shake that bacon, not eat it. “After this interview I’m going to have a nice healthy breakfast. I’m on a meal plan, which absolutely sucks,” Perry, who’s gearing up to release the video for her single E.T. as well as perform at the Grammys on Feb. 13, told her interviewer. “But on Sundays I get to have a cheat day where I go buck wild and eat In-N-Out Burger.” No wonder Perry has beef on the brain! Somebody need to tell her to calm down and eat a Lunchable already, or else she’s going to start wearing Lady Gaga‘s meat dress. And no, we don’t mean just to awards ceremonies.
Is it just us, or do there seem to be more and more televised award shows each year? That means one thing (and it has nothing to do with awards)—there’s more red carpet fashion than ever. When we compiled our list of favorite fashion moments from 2010, we had quite a crop to choose from. Gone are the days where the only shows worth mentioning were the Emmys, Grammys and Oscars. This year’s style compilation comes to you courtesy of the Creative Arts Emmys, the SAG Awards, and even the ESPYs. Oh, and a couple dozen film premieres, too. Check out who made our cut for best dressed celebs of 2010 in the gallery below—including just about everyone from Mad Men, a very GOOP-y celeb we love to hate, and the most famous half-vampire couple ever.
This photo of Katy Perry from Grazia Magazine looks like it belongs in Awkward Family Photos or something, doesn’t it? Alas, it was just Katy, putting on some holiday cheer for her interview with the mag, decked out in crystal star headpiece and…a towel? In her interview, Katy discusses her life with new husband Russell Brand, saying “What can I say? He’s brilliant. Every day he amazes me. . .This relationship is real, it’s not a photo opportunity, it’s two people who have found what they want.”
Perry also says that the Brands plan to start a brood soon, saying “I don’t want to miss out on any experience. I want lots of children.” And of course, since she put the star on top of her tree head for the interview, she had to mention what the couple’s holiday plans are. “We’ll open one present the night before because that’s the tradition in my family,” she explained. “And we’ll do something new. We’ll start our own new tradition because we are a family now.” She’s not all tradition though—she did mention that the Brand family Christmas tree is pink. Of course.
We can’t pinpoint what it is exactly that makes us love Katy Perry and Russell Brand as a couple, but it’s getting to be an irrational obsession of ours. They can’t get any more lovey and adorable than they were at last night’s premiere of The Tempest in L.A.—we l.o.v.e. when Katy goes more glam, less whipped-cream bra. She looks fantastic and we could honestly stare at this portrait of cuteness all day.
Brand stars in the film adaptation of the Shakespeare play with Helen Mirren, which is sort of appropriate since we imagine that Helen Mirren is just the older version of Katy Perry: sassy, sexy, and someone who would be really fun to get drunk with. However, Helen wins because she can be all those things and portray Queen Elizabeth II perfectly. Check out all our red carpet photos of the event, but seriously, we dare you not to swoon over these two newlyweds.
