Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom confirmed earlier this week that they’re not together anymore – for now – because they’re taking some “loving space”. Supposedly it was amicable, although PEOPLE reports that Orlando “didn’t want things to get more serious” and has recently been behaving like “he had one foot out the door and Katy picked up on that”.

I believe it. Orlando got what he needed out of that relationship. It has been a long time since he’s been as famous as he was when he was with Katy. What he failed to consider is that that level of fame can’t be sustained on his own. Bye, Orlando. Unless you get into a fight with Justin Bieber again. Or hitch a ride off another popstar – the point is we only care about Orly Bloom when he’s attached to someone MORE than Orly Bloom.

Still, Katy insists that there was nothing ugly about their split:

That’s what her Twitter says but her hair is saying something entirely different. Katy revealed a drastic cut yesterday:

Many are comparing the cut to Miley Cyrus. Katy is citing Michelle Williams as inspiration. Whatever, does it matter? What matters is that it looks AMAZING. I love it on her. It’s giving me haircut itches, which  I never follow through on… but just for a week, I want to try out how this feels.

As you can see, Katy’s stylist is Chris McMillan, made famous by Jennifer Aniston. And to go back to the breakup, in my experience, haircuts – major makeovers, in other words – that happen so close to a breakup are a direct reaction to the breakup, when you want to rid yourself of that era, literally cutting yourself off from that time, that person. It’s the kind of dramatic beginning that follows a dramatic end.
