Katy Perry

Katy Perry is officially the nicest human being on Earth. Prepare yourself, this story is an absolute tear-jerker.

The pop singer is currently on tour and had a concert set in Australia, but one fan could not attend.

Little Grace had bought tickets to see the show with her mum over a year ago, but unfortunately, she’s been battling a brain tumour all year.

Her sister, Tiana, immediately took action and was determined to get Grace the concert she had been dreaming of for so long.

“RETWEET PLEASE! my baby sister is meant to attend @katyperry concert in Adelaide this year but was diagnosed with a 6cm Brain tumour and has been battling all year,

“Grace has love been Katy’s biggest fan since she was 3, please help us try and get in contact with @katyperry,” Tiana tweeted on July 24th.

The Internet came to her aid and eventually, the news reached Katy Perry herself.

Just yesterday, the popstar came down to Grace’s house and gave her a private concert!

Katy introduced herself to the whole family, commending Tiana for shaving her head to raise money for her sister’s treatment.

The singer also said that little Grace was ‘the first person’ she had ever given a private concert in their home.

In the video, Katy is seen laughing and hanging out with all the kids and singing her hit song “Firework” while holding Grace’s hand.

Grace and Tiana’s mum thanked Katy and gave her a big hug for doing this for her daughter.

‘The power of the Internet’ that Katy captioned her photo can truly be attributed to the power of sisterhood.

Tiana probably wanted to cheer up her little sis in any way she could, and her constant posting with the hashtag #helpgracemeetkatyperry spread like wildfire.

We wish Grace the best of luck with her recovery and are so glad that she has such an awesome sister and supportive family surrounding her.

Russell Brand and his wife Laura Gallacher welcomed their second child into the world over the weekend. The Sun confirmed that Laura gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.

They shared that the parents are overjoyed following their baby girl’s safe arrival.

“Obviously they are over the moon, and Russell will no doubt be gushing about her whenever he next performs stand-up,” the source said.

It is understood Russell and Laura want to keep their children out of the spotlight, so didn’t feel the need to make a grand announcement.

They are also parents to daughter Mabel, who will be two-years-old in November.

Russell previously admitted that becoming a dad made him a better man.

Appearing on The View, the 42-year-old admitted: “I love being present and being a father to my daughter [11-month-old Mabel] – it’s completely changed my outlook.”

He continued: “I was a person who was obsessed with fame, obsessed with what people think of me…but I know nothing can make me happy except for my inner life, and my inner connection.”

“Having a baby is the materialisation of ‘I’m not the most important person in the world’,” he added.

Russell and style blogger Laura tied the knot last year, after two years of dating. The couple said "I do" in an intimate ceremony near their home in Henley-on-Thames.

We can’t wait to find out what name they chose for their daughter.

Love them or loathe them, we have to admit – we're a little bit obsessed with Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom's relationship.

The unlikely pair have hooked up/split up/gotten back together again and it has kept us all enthralled.

Katy recently gave an interview to Vogue Australia for the August 2018 issue, where she opened up about her relationship with Orlando. 

She explained that while she loves being with him, that there were many reason's why she does not speak about him publicly.

And it's not simply because she wants to keep that part of her life private. 

It is down to the fact that if she does divulge about her love life, it will give it more significance than other areas of her life – such as her activism, her career and her faith.

When Katy met Pope Francis in the Vatican in April, she was disappointed with the media coverage that it got, because Orlando was by her side for the trip. 

“I don’t want it to be a headline of the story, because it takes away from the purpose,” she said.

“Also, it’s extremely misogynistic. Of course, I love my relationship, but that is one part of me, and I don’t want any part of what I do to be diminished.”

These comments have been hailed as a powerful and feminist view of relationships and it's not surprising.

Katy has weathered her fair share of unwanted attention on her romantic life but, as she acknowledges, ''there will always be noise.''

One downfall about the lure of the bright lights of stardom is the intense pressure to appear perfect in front of the camera, a pressure which has led many celebs to go under the knife to tweak their least favourite feature.

Katy Perry has been plagued by plastic surgery rumours since she burst onto the music scene one decade ago with I Kissed A Girl, and the star has opened up about the work she has had done. 

In an interview with Refinery 29, the singer said that while she has had filler work done on her face, she has not had any other augmentations.

'I've done lasers and got injections under my eyes for the hollowing—which I'd recommend for everyone who wants a solution for their dark circles—but all of my assets are real,' she revealed to the online mag.

'People tend to think they are fake, but it doesn't really matter,' she said, referring to her chest. 

In fact, while many would shun the notion of plastic surgery, Perry is open to the concept, as long as the reasons for going under the knife are right. 

'We're getting away from that negative stigma about physical alterations,' she explained.

'Of course, always be your authentic self—but if someone wants a nose job that makes them feel better, and they love their profile more because of it, it's like, go ahead.'

'Do whatever makes you feel better about yourself. Stay in therapy, but get it, girl.'

When you have all the fame anf=d fortune the world can offer you, the high life is bound to come with some downsides. 

Celebrities in the public eye are regular targets for stalkers, with the likes of The Kardashians, Madonna and Justin Timberlake all having to take action against super fans who definitely cross the line of admiration and into obsession. 

Katy Perry is the latest pop sensation to have to deal with a stalker of her own. 

According to E! News, Katy Perry superfan named Pawel Jurski appeared in court today.

The 37-year-old faced felony charges of aggravated stalking.

According to the celeb outlet, the man reportedly said: 'I will do whatever it takes to be with Katy Perry.'

Jurski has pursued the singer during her Witness tour, attending multiple concerts of hers. 

He also attempted to access the star by infiltrating the stage during her performances.

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.

 

A post shared by KATY PERRY (@katyperry) on

“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.”

Right now, Katy is just about to kick off speaking to a scientist, Neil. If you want to tune in, check out here.

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!

You can check out the rest of the dates and ticket details right here.

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:
