The 34-year-old “Who Says” singer stepped out in Los Angeles Saturday night at Sky Bar in Los Angeles to celebrate Mindy Kaling‘s new show, The Mindy Project, hosted by Vitamin Water. While posing for a photo with Kaling, Mayer revealed his short wavy ‘do, which he wore spiked up. To enhance the look, the singer wore large beaded necklace with turquoise pendant.

Multiple sources confirmed to Us Weekly earlier in the week that Mayer and Perry, 27, ended their relationship after a couple months of casual dating.

“She’s really upset about it,” one insider told Us about the “Part of Me” singer. Earlier this year, Perry divorced Russell Brand, and briefly dated Florence + the Machine rocker Robert Ackroyd in the spring.

“She is making it seem like it wasn’t serious with John, another insider told Us, “but she is hurt.”

KATY PERRY IS A GINGER KID ON COVER OF L’OFFICIEL LEVANT

by: Amy Sciarretto

Katy Perry LOfficiel Cover

Another magazine cover and another hair color for Katy Perry. The style chameleon appears on the cover of French fashion rag L’Officiel Levant with thick, frizzy, red hair. Katy’s a ginger kid! It’s a muted and understated look for Perry, which is not something we’re used to seeing from her.

Is it us or does it look like she’s ripping a page out of Florence + the Machine’s book, trading her typical sugary look for something more elder stateswoman? Well, at least for this cover she is.

The ‘Wide Awake’ singer’s makeup is soft and peachy, as is her outfit. She’s also swapped her megawatt grin for a sexy, distant gaze.

Don’t know what L’Officiel Levant is? Well, it’s a long-running French fashion mag, published in Paris since 1921. So it’s got some serious history in one of the world’s fashion capitals. It targets upper-income, educated women between the ages of 25 and 49, and while that’s not exactly Perry’s fan demo, the singer is known for her fashion choices and has become a bit of an icon in that scene.

So what we’re saying is that she’s a terrific cover girl.

Perry’s most recent cover was the September issue of the American version of ELLE. Of course she had a totally different hair color. Come on, you wouldn’t expect the woman who reportedly turned down $20 million to board ‘American Idol‘ as a judge to stick to a monochromatic color theme when it comes to her hair and mag covers, would ya?

Had Katy Perry said “Yes” to American Idol, she would have seen even more money than Mariah.

A source tells Us Weekly that the show’s producers were so eager to have the pop star, 27, join the judging panel that they offered her $20 million dollars for a year-long contract.

“She was being hotly pursued,” the source explains. “They really wanted her.”

Ultimately, Perry turned them down, and execs have continued their search to replace Jennifer LopezSteven Tyler and Randy Jackson (who will vacate his seat on the panel and instead serve as a mentor during the upcoming season). A number of other names have been bandied about as possible Idol additions, including Nicki MinajPharrell WilliamsKeith Urban and Nick Jonas, though none at this point have been confirmed.

In late July, Mariah Carey officially signed on to judge, accepting an $18 million payday — making her the highest-paid judge on any music competition show.

Carey’s show predecessor Lopez, pulled in about $12 million per Idol season; Christina Aguilera negotiated a reported $10 million for the third season of The Voice, while Britney Spears will rake in an approximate $16 million for her stint on The X Factor.

Star Spotting: Katy Perry Tries To Be Incognito, Accidentally Does The Bend And Snap Instead!

by 

Katy Perry really doesn’t want to get noticed, guys.

As it’s clear by the fact that she’s wearing both a hood, a hat, and sunglasses, Katy Perry was definitely trying to keep a low profile yesterday as she perused L.A. vintage clothing shop, Golyester. And sure, while a hood, a hat, and sunglasses may radiate “please don’t look at me,” what Katy failed to realize is that it’s basically impossible for people not to stare at her when she’s giving the whole street a close-up of her toned derriere! In fact, it appears as if the four-time 2012 MTV VMA nominee was in the middle of a famed “Bend & Snap!”

If you’re not familiar with the “Bend & Snap” (but srsly, how is that even possible?) then we’ll give you a quick crash course. “Bend and Snap” is a term that comes from the movie “Legally Blonde” and is a foolproof move developed by Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) to get men’s attention. Yeahhhh, so even while rocking your grungiest sweats, the “Bend & Snap” works every time. Really though, we’re sorry boo that you got noticed despite your deep disguise. On the bright side, you can watch this stunning “Bend and Snap” GIF as many times as you’d like! Well that, and you’re maybe definitely dating John Mayer so there’s really not much to complain about.

Katy Perry’s ‘Wide Awake’ Video: Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming

Pop princess slaps reality in the face in first official post-divorce clip

On the outside, Katy Perry’s official not-a-lyric-video video for her first post-divorce single “Wide Awake” is as cotton candy fairy princess as her two recent award show performances of the song, but as the four-minute clip progresses, it’s clear that this time, themes are going to run a little deeper (though just as autobiographical) than in her usual goodie-goodie, bubblegum-fueled teenage dream.

In a direct nod to her upcoming 3D movie, the opening and closing scenes of “Awake” are pretty meta, starting with Perry coming off the set of her “California Gurls” video and wrapping with her stepping onto a stadium stage to perform “Teenage Dream.”

In between those two bookends, however, Perry changes. Backstage, she is magically transported into a dark and scary realm, where she and a little girl (a tiny version of herself — she’s awfully fond of those lately) must save each other from the dangers of weakly veiled metaphors of forbidden fruit, walls closing in, and mental breakdowns. When they finally escape, they reach the end of the rainbow, or the garden of Eden, or Candyland, or whatever, where Prince Charming and happily ever after awaits them — except then there’s a twist.

Well, we won’t spoil the ending, but we’re going to guess Perry assumes you know who her ex-husband Russell Brand is, and that their marriage ended. Perry is done living a Teenage Dream, … even though she performs that song 15 seconds later, but now she can make happy endings for herself — with the help of her Katy Kat superfans, who get a shout-out via expertly trimmed shrubbery. Maybe it’s time she took M83’s Anthony Gonzalez up on his offer to work on her next album: he knows a few things about dreams, too.

Katy Perry Cuddles with New Guy at Coachella

BY TIM NUDD

Katy Perry Cuddles with New Guy at Coachella | Katy Perry

Katy Perry appears to have found a new boyfriend in the music business. And where else to make their first public appearance together than at a rock festival?

The pop star, 27, was spotted kissing, hugging and swaying to music with Robert Ackroyd, a guitarist for English indie-pop band Florence + the Machine, at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., this weekend.

Perry was all smiles, in a purple outfit with a gold sunburst pattern, matching her newly dyed purple hair, as she danced the night away with Ackroyd, outfitted simply in jeans and a white T-shirt – revealing his heavily tattooed forearms.

The “Part of Me” singer has been quite the party girl at Coachella this year. One night last week, she stayed up past 4 a.m., and came back the next day for more.

This is Perry’s first new love since getting divorced from Russell Brand – not counting that fan’s Chihuahua she met in Paris.

Katy Perry ‘just friends’ with model

Katy Perry’s rumoured new boyfriend has insisted they are just ‘good friends’.

The American singer has been linked to model Baptiste Giabiconi ever since they were spotted partying together during Paris Fashion Week. He had previously spoken of how much he admired the star and it was reported they had sparked up a romance following her split from Russell Brand.

Baptiste has now confirmed he is single, although he does enjoy Katy’s company.

Katy Perry is a real good friend. Seriously, we appreciate each other, we see each other regularly, when she is here [in France], when I’m over there [in the US],’ he told News-de-stars.com. ‘Lately we saw each other in London as I was rehearsing with my musicians as my tour starts soon in Germany and she had a show. She performed on a UK TV channel and it happened we were leaving on the same day, so we left in the same train. As simple as that. Yes [I am single].’

Baptiste also took time to praise designer Karl Lagerfeld, who is believed to have introduced the model to Katy.

‘We see each other regularly, from time to time, when we can. He has a lot of things to do, but sometimes we call each other. We are still very close. It’s like family,’ he said.

Baptiste’s comments come after his representative seemed to imply romance was flourishing. Following claims the model was planning a move to Los Angeles, his spokesperson commented on reports he and Katy were dating.

‘It’s new, they’re feeling it out, but they’re spending a lot of time together,’ the representative said.

Katy and Russell are currently in the process of divorcing after he filed papers to end their marriage in December. They had been wed for 14 months and there is now speculation Russell is keen to move on in every area of his life.

He was spotted at a tattoo parlour in Los Angeles over the weekend, sparking claims he is planning to get rid of an inking he and Katy both have.
