Katy Perry

There's no doubt that their relationship and subsequent marriage surprised many, but the union between Russell Brand and Katy Perry seemed like it was set to truly last.

Until it wasn't, that is.

Following a 14-month marriage, the British comedian and US singer decided to part ways in 2012, and the years that followed were peppered with veiled snipes between the pair.

But it seems like 42-year-old Russell is more than ready to draw a line under the reported ill will, and make peace with the Chained to the Rhythm singer.

Speaking to Grazia, Russell, who became a father for the first time last year, insisted that his marriage to Katy is not something he regrets, nor is it something that creates negative connotations.

"I’m willing and open for reconciliation, any kind," he said of a possible friendship with the singer.

"I don’t regret being married to Katy at all,” he said. “I have very positive feelings about that whole experience and Katy is an extraordinary woman."

Russell, who married his daughter's mother, Laura Gallacher, last month, fears than an inability to make amends would speak poorly of him.

"If we can’t overcome our relatively trivial personal disputes in this world, what hope is there for us?" he asks.

Reflecting on his relationship with Katy, Russell dismissed the notion he was unhappy, saying: "[It] a very important and lovely time in my life."

We wonder if Katy is on the same page…

Katy Perry is going Big Brother style with her promotion for her new album, Witness.

The singer is hosting a live-stream all weekend, but don't think it's going to be a parties and promos.

Katy began her live-stream with a therapy session with Dr Siri Nam Singh.

According to News.com.au, the session was very emotional and Katy opened up about a whole range of issues including depression, drinking and experiencing suicidal thoughts.

“I wrote a song about it,” the singer explained. “I feel ashamed that I would even have those thoughts, feel that low and that depressed.

“That’s the point of this whole thing, if people can see I’m just like them then they can dream just as big.

“I’m a bit more nerdy than everybody thinks I am, I’m a big goofball. The fantasy of Kathryn went into Katy and made this bigger than life personality.”

The singer even opened up about her alter-ego of Katy Perry, and said that sometimes she just wants to be Kathryn Hudson again.

“I so badly want to be Kathryn Hudson that I don’t even want to look like Katy Perry any more, sometimes.”

Pop superstar Katy Perry sat down with Eoghan McDermott to play one of our favourite teenage 'would you rather games' in a video that has since gone viral.

Katy was faced with a very difficult decision – choosing whether to snog, marry or avoid three of Ireland's top sporting stars. 

Dublin footballer Bernard Brogan, Galway hurling Joe Canning as well as Ireland full-back rugby player Rob Kearney were her three choices.

 

A post shared by KATY PERRY (@katyperry) on

It was a tense decision-making process, with Katy telling Eoghan she couldn't possibly commit to marrying someone she had never met, and so changed the game to kiss, f***, discard.

Ultimately, she made the swift decision to bed Rob Kearney, shift Joe Canning and avoid 'trying her luck' with Dubliner Bernard Brogan.

Calling all Katy Perry fans!

If you were hoping to see the pop sensation in concert any time soon, you're out of luck. 

Katy has just announced that she's bringing her tour to Europe, but sadly Ireland is off the list of destinations.

She'll be visiting the likes of France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and the UK, but no date for the Emerald Isle in site.

The star is doing seven dates in the UK and Scotland, so for any hardcore fans, a trip across the pond might not be too much of an ordeal.

However, there is still a chance that the singer might add yet more dates to her extensive tour. 

Fingers crossed!

Katy Perry is the latest start to pay tribute to the victims of Monday's terror attack in Manchester.

During an intimate one-off gig in London's The Water Rats pub, the singer dedicated her song, Part of Me, to the 22 people who lost their lives following the tragic event. 

A visibly emotional Katy told the crowd: "This week has been really hard. It sucked. It was hard for you guys and it was hard for me because we all love music.''

''We all listen to the same music. And you think about it and think, 'That's my friend, that's my sister, that's my cousin, that's my brother.'"

''I'm going to sing this next song [Part of Me] for them. They can never take that part away from us ever. Ever."

The moving tribute comes after Miley Cyrus and Harry Styles both dedicated performances to the Manchester victims. 

During a heartfelt rendition of Malibu, on The Voice US, Miley said: "I want to dedicate this song to my good friend Ariana Grande and everyone who experienced that horrific attack yesterday. Our hearts are with you."

Meanwhile, Harry spoke about the attack during a small gig in Mexico saying, ''Tonight doesn't feel like a night to celebrate.''

''Last night there was a tragedy in my hometown of Manchester. And I am left with a hole in my heart. I went to my first show in the arena and I've had some of my best experiences in Manchester.''

He added, ''I ask you to please choose love every single day.''

The Sign of The Times singer then held a minutes silence for the victims and their families.

Looks like James Corden can add 'celeb beef mediator' to his CV as he expertly got to the bottom of one of Hollywood's most famous feuds last night.  

Katy Perry recently joined the actor/ late night talk show host as a guest on the hit Carpool Karaoke series, but it looks like James wasn't just there to sing.

Instead, he took the opportunity to get to the bottom on the singer's infamous feud with Taylor Swift. 

"There's a situation," Perry said. "Honestly, it's really like she started it, and it's time for her to finish it."

If you don't' know by now, their public feud stems back to a mix up with some backup dancers and a miscommunication between the pair. 

“I tried to talk to her about it and she wouldn't’t speak to me.” Katy says in the video.

It is widely believed that Taylor wrote her hit single Bad Blood about her beef with Katy, and now fans have speculated that Katy's new track Swish Swish is a response. 

"I do the right thing any time that it feels like a fumble," Perry says. "It was a full shutdown and then she writes a song about me, and I'm like, OK, cool, cool, cool, that's how you want to deal with it? Karma!"

''It's all about karma, right? I think personally that women together, not divided, and none of this petty bulls–t, women together will heal the world." 

James then rather lightheartedly asked the singer if she would be prepared to "remove the beef from the grill" if Taylor approached her. 

Katy agreed "100%".

James then took us back to what Carpool Karaoke is all about when he turned the radio up and Roar began to play.

Despite Katy Perry stating that she wouldn't be throwing any shade at Taylor Swift with her new album, her newest song doesn't quite seem that way.

'I think [my new album is] a very empowered record. There is no one thing that’s calling out any one person,' she said, when asked if she would be clapping back at Taylor Swift's song Bad Blood. 

'One thing to note is: You can’t mistake kindness for weakness and don’t come for me. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone.'

Today, Katy dropped her brand new track Swish Swish, and fans are speculating that it reads like a diary of events that occurred during Katy and Taylor's well-documented beef.

With sly digs like 'you’re about as cute as an old coupon, expired,' and a perceived mention of Taylor and Kim Kardashin's melodramatic moment where Kim exposed Taylor and started the now infamous snake emoji trend against her ('karma’s not a liar, she keeps receipts') it kind of looks like the singer is aiming this song at the country-turned-pop star. 

Katy even teamed up with Nicki Minaj on the track, who also has also had a very public argument with Taylor Swift. 

Taylor has yet to respond to speculation that the song is about her.

You can give the song a listen and see what you think below:

It has been nearly four years since Katy Perry released her last full album, Prism, so we've been dying for the pop sensation to create more music. 

Katy has confirmed that she does have new music on the way, full of 'purposeful pop' which reflects on society and politics.

However, fans have been wondering if the new album will have any response to her well-publicised beef with pop and country singer Taylor Swift, who is rumoured to have written her hit single Bad Blood about her feud with Katy. 

'That’s not my question to answer, if it’s about me,' said Katy, when asked by Entertainment Weekly if she will be responding to Taylor's dig.

' I think [my new album is] a very empowered record. There is no one thing that’s calling out any one person.'

'One thing to note is: You can’t mistake kindness for weakness and don’t come for me. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone.'

'And that’s not to any one person and don’t quote me that it is, because it’s not. It’s not about that.'

'Honestly, when women come together and they decide to unite, this world is going to be a better place. Period end of story.'

'But, let me say this: Everything has a reaction or a consequence so don’t forget about that, okay, honey.We got to keep it real, honey. This record is not about anyone else!'

 

A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

Okay, so it's definitely not going to have a response to Taylor, then.

We applaud Katy for bowing out of the traditional way in which women in the same industry can be pitted against one another, simply for being female.

While accepting the National Equality award at this year's Human Rights Campaign gala, Katy Perry revealed that a staunch anti-gay rhetoric had informed most of her childhood and adolescence.

Born into a conservative and religious family, Katy was taught from a young age that the LGBT community was something to fear.

"When I was growing up, homosexuality was synonymous with the word 'abomination' and 'hell'," she explained. "So most of my unconscious adolescence, I prayed the gay away at my Jesus camps."

During the impassioned speech supporting the gay community, the singer revealed that with the support of friends she began to understand her own sexuality, and ultimately realised her perception of the LGBT community had been utterly skewed.

"There is no other community that has done more to shape who I am today, and there is no other community that I believe in more than you," she said.

Delving further still, the 32-year-old singer explained that her own experiences contradicted the teachings of her church and family.

Referring to her debut single, I Kissed a Girl, Katy added: "Truth be told, I did more than that. But how I was I going to reconcile that with a gospel-singing girl raised in youth groups that were pro-conversion camps?"

Katy finished her well-received speech with a promise, saying: "I'll never cease to be a champion, an ally, a spotlight, and a loving voice for all LGBTQ-identifying people."

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have been together for just over a year, but the couple have called it quits on their relationship, at least temporarily. 

“Before rumours or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time," reads a statement from both celebrities' reps, acquired by People

The two were spotted together on Sunday at the Vanity Fair Oscars party, where they posed for photos together.

However, a source said that other than smiling for the cameras side-by-side, the two didn't have any further interaction. 

"Katy didn’t spend much time with Orlando,” the source told People.

“They got together for a photo, but that was about it.”

No exact reason has been given yet for the split, but with Katy's busy schedule promoting her new single Chained To The Rhythm and Orlando focusing on his ambassador role for UNICEF, clashing work commitments could be the cause.

Hopefully the two enjoy their break and then rekindle their relationship.
