Right now, I love them all. I love that they can’t f-cking help themselves. For all their weak accusations about the media creating drama that’s not there, I love that they’re the ones creating it for themselves. As usual.
But what about the publicist? It used to be the publicist’s job. Before Facebook and Instagram and Twitter, there was a buffer between whatever it was that a celebrity wanted to say and whatever it was that they ended up saying. Now, as artists claim to want a more direct line between themselves and their public, the publicists can only stand by and face-palm. And cringe. Because, as we’ve seen so often, most of the time, people who are famous don’t make good decisions in conflict. Gossip is grateful for it.

Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift got into it on Twitter the other day. Click here for my analysis on the situation. And for those of you who insist that Nicki was targeting Taylor, click here for Buzzfeed’s solid case in defence of Nicki, and how she was consistent with her original message before Taylor even jumped in.

Katy Perry went to Vegas to see Mimi. Then they posed together for photos. Obviously my sweet glitter butterfly angel is the most beautiful and the most thin every day, but on this day, especially so. Because Christ Jesus what is Katy wearing? I’m not just talking about the pink fur. I’m not just talking about all those pearls – three pearl drops on each ear AND a double strand around her neck. Full Story
Let me just tell you, again, how it was when I was growing up, OK? Old people do this. We have to mansplain to the new generation about the superiority of our world. Back then, a Madonna video and/or performance was a major event. It was tight. It was bold. It was always imitated. Over and over again it was imitated from basements to school gymnasiums to stages.

Taylor Swift put together a video featuring all of her friends for Bad Blood. And you know the song is supposedly about Katy Perry. Now Madonna is …well… Kinda doing the same… WITH Katy Perry. Here’s what she posted on Instagram: Video coming soon! Just tryin to make it perfect for all of you ❤️🌹❤️🌹❤️🌹❤️🌹❤️😄❤️😓❤️😁 we are hard werking bitches! #bitchimmadonna Full Story
So it wasn’t true. Katy Perry is not releasing a song called 1984 as a slap-back to Taylor Swift. Her managers confirmed to Billboard that the story was bullsh-t. There is a 1984 that has been registered but it’s not hers. Katy also retweeted Billboard’s clarification on the issue which means there’s nothing to see here…
But what were those few hours like when Taylor Swift thought that there might have been something to see there? Well, around the same time that the rumour about 1984 was circulating, Taylor was also retweeting online articles. This story in ESQUIRE featuring Taylor and Beyonce with the title…
How Beyoncé and Taylor Swift Conquered the World with Pop Music
…that namechecks Katy Perry, who’s a major player in pop too, like she’s an afterthought. You think she’d want to be part of that conversation?
It’s the only flattering headline about Beyonce that’s come out this week. The Beyhive felt f-cked over after her Good Morning America shenanigans a few days ago – click here for a refresher – as people continue to not give a sh-t about her 22 Vegan Days, and, at the same time, seriously hate on Tidal. Bey is supposedly releasing an “athleisure’ clothing line with Topshop in the fall. Seems a lot more on-brand than kale. But can she remain as removed from the consumer while promoting that than she has been with the vegan business? Would you buy it anyway because it’s fashion?

Katy Perry has reportedly registered a song called 1984. That’s when she was born. But, not surprisingly, and understandably, everyone’s wondering whether or not it’s a slap-back to Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood off her smash hit album 1989. Come on. This is not a reach. We’ve been talking about how they hate each other for months. Full Story

Katy Perry changed wigs after the MET Gala on Monday night and hit up on the after-parties with designer Jeremy Scott…and then John Mayer was spotted arriving right behind her. So Diplo is not a thing. The thing is still Katy and John. Some people deserve each other, you know? And I mean that in the best way. Full Story

If you’d have asked me who I would have predicted to pull out the ching-chong eyes before the MET Gala, I would have told you Katy Perry. Dakota Johnson would not have been on my radar. Maybe it’s because I’m so surprised that Katy wasn’t offensive that I’m not totally offended by her outfit. Full Story
