MTV VMAs 2014: Katy Perry And Riff Raff Pay Tribute To Justin And Britney

Well played, Katy Perry. The pop queen felt a little slighted that “Roar” didn’t snag any major nominations (despite being watched billions of times) but she still made sure all eyes were on her at the 2014 MTV VMAs red carpet tonight (August 24). Which was no easy feat given the sea of attention-hungry divas vying to be the most outrageous.

The 29-year-old arrived on the arm of her side-piece Riff Raff in matching denim outfits — an obvious tribute to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake‘s iconic appearance at the 2001 American Music Awards. The cute couple kissed on the red carpet and recently worked on a remix of Katy’s new single “This Is How We Do”. So it’s obviously true love. More »

We Put A Ring On The Past 10 Years
At this Sunday’s (August 24) MTV Video Music Awards, Pharrell will be the one male facing off against female pop forces Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea and Sia in the Video Of The Year category. And of course we all know those names today, but who remembers that Panic! At The Disco once waltzed away from the VMAs with a Video Of The Year moonman? Or what song Green Day nabbed the award for in 2005? Or what year Britney Spears emerged victorious in the category?

Ahead of the latest staging of MTV’s annual extravaganza, we decided to flash back through the past decade, all the way back to 2004, to refresh our memories on exactly which artists and songs won the big prize on VMAs night. We then compiled snippets of all the winning clips into one two-and-a-half-minute video, which you can watch above. More »

MTV VMAs: Does Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus & Katy Perry Sitting Next To Each Other Spell Drama?

Awkward?
According to sneak-peek video footage E! grabbed of the seating arrangements at this Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, Miley Cyrus will be perched right between Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry. That should prove to be interesting for all involved, considering Nicki appeared to be irked when Miley co-opted her racy “Anaconda” single art earlier this month, slapped her own head on it (twice) and retitled it “Hannah Conda” — something that prompted Nicki to respond with, “Give me one good reason why Miley made this her twitter avi”.

Katy Perry Drops Free Riff Riff Remix Of “This Is How We Do”: Listen

Katy And Riff Raff, Yo!
Oh WOW, Katycats! Katy Perry sure has a treat for YOU!

Are you bumping “This Is How We Do” on repeat all day and night? Are you trying to teach your ice cream to twerk? COOL, YO! Now get ready, because Katy’s already switched it up with a brand new remix, starring her newest BFF Riff Raff.

Who? Well, the Houston-bred rapper has been kicking around for a while now as part of Diplo‘s Mad Decent label. You might know him for his current Vine-popular jam “Tip Toe Wing In My Jawwdinz,” or maybe from his work as part of comedic hip-hop troupe Three Loco with Andy Milonakis and Simon Rex. More »

Katy Perry, Rihanna Or Coldplay To Play 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show (But They Might Have To Pay)

Katy, RiRi Or Coldplay?
The NFL Super Bowl! A shining American beacon of sportsmanship, teamwork, freedom — and heavily censored FCC rules and regulations.

After a series of superstar performances in past years, including Bruno Mars, last year’s Beyoncé Bowl and 2012′s show with Madonna (which landed her in hot water thanks to M.I.A.‘s middle finger), the show organizers have reportedly narrowed down the potential performers for next year’s show to Katy Perry, Rihanna or Coldplay. That is — if they’ve got the money.

The Wall Street Journal reports that NFL organizers “also asked at least some of the acts if they would be willing to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig,” which has apparently been met with “chilly reception.” That’s right: They’ve got the gall to ask if these superstar acts would pay to play.

Katy Perry’s “This Is How We Do” Gets A Twisted Trap Remix From Brillz: Listen

Katy Perry‘s new single “This Is How We Do” has been morphed into a mind-bending dance anthem by trap god Brillz. I really wasn’t ready! The Los Angeles-based DJ turns the rising hit inside out, transforming it into a seething mass of twisted synths. And it works surprisingly well. So much so that the pop diva tweeted the link and put it on Facebook.

Of course, this isn’t Katy’s first flirtation with trap. She helped bring a pop friendly twist on the genre to the musical landscape with Juicy J-assisted chart-topper “Dark Horse” but this is a balls-to-the-wall banger. It goes really hard and should find serious love in clubs. “This Is How We Do” is the fifth single from the 29-year-old’s Prism LP and is currently the most-added song on pop radio.

Katy Perry Performs “Roar” At White House Reception: Watch

A Champion
Katy Perry took a brief detour from her ongoing tour to perform at the White House. On July 31, she performed an intimate rendition of her Prism hit “Roar” during a Special Olympics reception, to high-profile guests including Maria Shriver (whose mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver founded the organization) – and after a warm introduction from President Barack Obama himself.

“I love Katy Perry,” Obama said. “She is just a wonderful person. I just met her mom, now I know why she’s such a wonderful person.” Prior to that, he had called her “one of my favorite people.” And after that, he mentioned that the “This Is How We Do” star was currently on tour – her Prismatic tour, to be more specific – to emphasize what a privilege it was to see her there.

Watch Katy Perry do “Roar” up top, then see Barack Obama’s introduction below. More »

Here’s An Adorable Pic From Katy Perry’s ‘Rolling Stone’ Shoot. Because Katy Perry.

Katy Perry threw a little shade in her recent Rolling Stone cover story but, as far as I can tell, told no lies. Little Monsters are still reeling at the prospect of the Prism diva possibly taking aim at Lady Gaga‘s martyr antics (she never mentioned her by name) but the world has already moved on. Which is a shame because the photo shoot was really cute!

A new pic surfaced online and it’s totally adorable. Katy shows off her toned tummy while rocking a fluffy pink top and green alien earring (that matches her hair). It’s like the ’90s never ended. The 29-year-old the video for “This Is How We Do”  today (August 1) and it’s another candy-colored winner. Maybe she’ll have the two most-watched videos of 2014 by the end of the year? See the full pic after the jump. More »

Katy Perry’s “This Is How We Do” Video: Watch The Color-Drenched Spectacle

Do It Up, Gurl!
If Katy Perry was going for a dazzling, eye-popping colorgasm with her video for “This Is How We Do,” the fifth single released off Prism, then she can stamp “accomplished” across this particular mission. The visual for the party-vibe pop jam features Rolling Stone cover girl Katy and a pair of her girlfriends tearing through hair colors and ’80s-leaning outfits as they strut and twirl through a series of vivid, computer-generated backgrounds. They’ve also got a crew of handsome male dancers on hand to serve them popsicles and assemble a Maserati. Convenient Perry!

Did we mention that there’s a (pretty realistic) Mariah Carey impersonator? Or a twerking ice cream cone?! Good God — watch above! More »
