Happy Birthday, Mr. President

27 Jul

It’s no secret that President Barack Obama has a lot of friends in Hollywood.

Leading up to the big election last November, dozens of famous faces took part in campaign rallies, concerts and fundraisers (all hail Beyonce and Jay Z) to support the president’s bid for a second term.

On Sunday, Obama turns 52 years young, and in honor of his birthday, Celebuzz is taking a look at some of the stars the P.O.T.U.S. has rubbed shoulders with.

According to The Associated Press, the commander in chief will be spending part of his birthday at Camp David in Maryland before returning to the White House in the afternoon.

Obama will travel to the west coast this week to visit troops at Camp Pendleton, discuss plans to help homeowners and drop by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for an appearance on Aug. 6.

Watch: The Career Evolution Of Katy Perry

11 Jul

We all know and love Katy Perry as an outlandish fashion icon and pop sensation, but where did she get her start?

Known for her candy-themed stage shows and catchy songs, Katy has become a pop institution – but who knew that Katy’s real name is actually Katy Hudson and that her first single wasn’t “I Kissed a Girl,” but the similar sounding “Ur So Gay“? And that even though some of her songs like to push boundaries, she grew up in an ultra conservative household with both of her parents being pastors who refused to let her listen to any rock or popular music?

Sit back and join Celebuzz’s Taryn Brooks and enjoy Katy’s journey from one-time gospel singer to pop icon.

Another Day, Another Katy Perry Song

14 Mar

At the iTunes Festival in London, Katy Perry decided to treat her fans to another new song off the upcoming Prism. This one’s called “By the Grace of God” and, oh boy, it’s a doozy.

The ballad describes Perry’s emotional devastation following her divorce from Russell Brand, fighting off suicidal thoughts. In Perry’s Billboard cover story, she talked about the song, saying: “That song is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point. I asked myself, ‘Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?’ All the songs are real-life moments. I can only write autobiographically. I put all the evidence in the music. I tell my fans if they want to know the real truth about stuff, just listen to the songs.”

If it seems like Perry’s already given us a listen to every song off her album, don’t worry there are plenty more. Perry just released the track listing for Prism:

  1. Roar
  2. Legendary Lovers
  3. Birthday
  4. Walking on Air
  5. Unconditionally
  6. Dark Horse
  7. This is How We Do
  8. International Smile
  9. Ghost
  10. Love Me
  11. This Moment
  12. Double Rainbow
  13. By the Grace of God
  14. Spititual
  15. It Takes Two
  16. Choose Your Battles

Prism is out Oct. 22.

In a recent interview with celebrity news, KATY PERRY talked about her unearthed-and evidently “wasted”-karaoke video with ROBERT PATTINSON from 5 years ago, which went viral earlier this week.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry has been having quite a hard time proving to the masses that she and Robert Pattinson are really just friends, even after she denied the rumors herself to her good friend (and Pattinson‘s famous lady love), Kristen Stewart.

To make things worse, an old video of the unlikely pair singing karaoke at a party back in 2008 has gone viral, as it featured a drunk Pattinson and Katy sitting on his lap while covering Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love To You.”

She said on “The Kyle and Jackie O Show” about the video:

“Well, there’s the media for you, nothing is sacred, not even karaoke.”

Perry notes that the video was from 2008 and that they “got wasted and did karaoke like people do” and then “it f*cking finally showed up on the Internet.”

She then insisted that it shows “that we’re like actually just friends.”

Katy pressed:

“We’re like true friends.”

Okay, okay, Katy. We believe you!

Check out the karaoke video again below, as well as her radio interview.

Katy Perry just released the third teaser for her upcoming single, “Roar,” and this one is absolutely purr-fect. (Sorry.)

She’s already burned her blue “California Gurls” wig and laid her old persona to rest, but now Katy’s taking it to the next level proving she’s no longer a fluffy little kitten, she’s a fierce animal who’s ready to roar! (And we ain’t lion. We’re not finished with with the cat puns over here, by the way.)

Katy tweeted,”This one’s for the kittens. It’s time to make those meows #ROAR” with a link to the new video.

The pop star doesn’t make an appearance in this latest teaser, but a sample of “Roar” does. Yup – you can hear about four seconds of the track at the end.

“Roar” will be released on August 12th. We’re paws-itively thrilled. (OK. done now.)

So, what do you think, Katycats? Are you a fan of teaser #3?

LISTEN: Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ Has Leaked

We’re not sure who’s in trouble here, but we’re certainly glad to stumble upon this leaked version of Katy Perry‘s highly anticipated single “Roar,” the first track off Prism.

The leak comes after a week filled with previews unveiled by Perry (like this one).

In other Katy Perry news, the singer’s promotional Prism truck was involved in an accident on Friday.

A drunk driver was behind the wheel of a semi-truck when it hit the singer’s parked gold truck at a Walmart parking lot in Pennsylvania, causing some damage to the front of the vehicle, according to TMZ. The Prism driver and others inside the truck are fine.

Perry, who was not inside the vehicle at the time, later wrote on Twitter,

Get To Know Your Celebrity Blabbermouth: Keith Hudson

16 Aug

Katy Perry's father Keith Hudson

If the name sounds familiar, his daughter “kissed a girl” and became an overnight singing sensation.

Yep, it’s Keith HudsonKaty Perry‘s evangelical, leather-clad and bejeweled cross-loving pastor father who loves to fill his sermons with pleas to help save his daughter from the hellish depths of rock star damnation, like The Sun reported in May.

While headlining their own church tour, Keith and Katy’s mom, Mary, reportedly called the “I Kissed A Girl” singer a “devil child” in dire need of “healing”: “They ask how can I preach if I produce a girl who sang about kissing another girl?” Keith apparently said to a crowd in Santa Fe Springs, Calif. “I was at a concert of Katy’s where there were 20,000. I’m watching this generation and they were going at it. It almost looked like church. I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping. They’re loving and worshipping the wrong thing.”

And if that wasn’t enough, the pop star’s dad also issued a public apology in 2012 after being blasted in the media for using anti-Semitic remarks in one of his sermons: “You know how to make the Jew jealous? Have some money, honey,” he said to a congregation in Ohio that sparked the outrage. “You go to L.A. and they own all the Rolex and diamond places. Walk down a part of L.A. where we live and it is so rich it smells. You ever smell rich? They are all Jews, hallelujah. Amen.”

He later insisted he is “not an anti-Semite,” adding in the statement to the Anti-Defamation League, “I deeply regret the hurtful and ugly language I used in my message.”
