Lipstick. Lashes. Love. Meet Singer, Songwriter and Actress and now the newest COVERGIRL; Katy Perry.
Bombshells P!NK and new COVERGIRL Katy Perry are larger then life and the 2014 Grammy Awards! With 125 foot billboards painted on side of Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. Watch the time lapse of the Giant Billboard painted just before the 56th annual Grammys.
GQ.com – Not very long ago, she was strumming a guitar on the street and getting paid in avocados. Today she’s the most cartoonishly ubiquitous pop star on Earth. Katy Perry gives Amy Wallace an earful about aliens (real), her world-famous body (real), her “relationship” with Obama, and what the hell she was thinking before she went full geisha at the American Music Awards.
It smells like weed in here. Weed and doughnuts.
We’re in the basement of the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, backstage at the American Music Awards, in a dressing-room suite that would be spacious if not for all the frenzied humanity crammed inside. Katy Perry sits atop a tall director’s chair surrounded by the many, many members of her team: voice coach, two hairstylists, one makeup artist, a costumer, and several others who hover and hand Perry things without her asking: Breath mints. Her phone. Eye drops for her enormous anime eyes. Special pills prescribed by her ear, nose, and throat guy to keep her voice from drying out pre-performance. “It happens,” Perry says. “It’s the nerves.”
She doesn’t seem the slightest bit nervous. Which is impressive when you consider that the 29-year-old diva (who’s never really seemed like one) is trying something different tonight. Perry has always played a dual role in the culture: at once a full-on male fantasy and a symbol of empowerment who inspires young girls. No other artist has so seamlessly blended teenage dreams and grown-up misadventures, singing about hickeys and crushes, yes, but also threesomes, blackouts, and strangers in your bed. Now, on prime-time television, she’s about to twist her image one more quarter turn, transforming from America’s audacious, outrageous cleavage-bot into its selfless, doting concubine. At precisely five o’clock, she will kick off the awards show with a Japanese spectacle featuring fluttering fan dancers, four men pounding on gongs, a forest of rolling topiary, and a metric ton of faux cherry blossoms.
Now the smell of a different type of flora—Cannabis sativa—wafts in from the hallway…. Ah, okay, Rihanna’s suite is twenty feet away. “Everyone is high!” Perry declares, giggling. She means everyone else: “The weed—I’m not friends with it.” She is bare-shouldered, bare-legged, barefooted—bare-everythinged, basically, except for the wig cap on her head and the teensy light blue Hello Kitty terry-cloth wrap that cinches above her breasts and ends where butt meets thigh. “I can’t do that stuff. I’d be like in the corner: ‘Are you trying to kill me?!’ ”
But that sugar-sweet doughnut reek? Perry takes responsibility. The doughnuts are gone—the victims, it seems, of a fried-dough orgy that ended before I arrived.
She starts warming up her voice: “Eee, eee, eee, eee, EEE, eee, eee, eee, eee!” Five notes up, four notes down, a sort of pitch-perfect keening.
“A little whinier and looser,” her voice coach commands. “Make your tongue super-loose.”
“Ex-cuse me?” she responds, batting her lashes, enjoying the vague reference to naughty things one can do with one’s mouth, then blasts out another scale. “Good,” says the coach, dodging a mascara wand and a hot curling iron to play another note on his iPad keyboard. “Now, really whiny. Say: Gwah!”
“Gwa, gwa, gwa, gwa, GWAH,” Perry projects, extending her legs, crossing them at the ankles and resting her heels on the makeup table. As someone slips a pair of glittery tabi socks onto her feet, a blur of others poke at her and tug at her and dust her face with Super White theatrical powder.
“It takes a village!” she trills, and the crew laugh anxiously. Her geisha wig has yet to be secured to her head. Her pink kimono is draped on a hanger. In just twenty-five minutes, she’s supposed to go live.
Some of the year’s most successful music acts — including Katy Perry, Lorde and Robin Thicke — have been announced as performers at the 56th annual Grammy Awards.
The Recording Academy also said in a statement to OTRC.com that in addition, two-time Grammy winner and actor LL Cool J will return as the host of the awards ceremony, airing on CBS on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET (check local listings). The rapper has hosted the show since 2012.
OTRC.com is covering the Grammys and will bring you details and photos from the show’s most electrifying performances, elaborate red carpet looks, memorable moments and, of course, a full list of the evening’s winners.
UPDATE: Check out a list of Grammy Awards performers announced so far, in alphabetical order:
3. Katy Perry — It was announced on Jan. 7 that Perry was added to the growing list of Grammy night performers. The singer is nominated for two awards, including Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for her No. 1 hit single “Roar.” Perry released her third studio album, “Prism,” in October 2013, which also features the songs “Unconditionally” and “Dark Horse” featuring Juicy J. Check out a track-by-track review of the album here.
Katy is looking absolutely stunning on the cover of the January 2014 issue of Marie Claire (US) — scans to be added shortly! An extract from the interview is posted below; read the rest on the Marie Claire website.
KATY PERRY HAS HAD A HELL OF A COUPLE OF YEARS. In case you missed it: Amid a best-selling tour for a multiplatinum album, there was a divorce, a walk on the dark side, then a new relationship, a breakup, a make-up, and a return to a lighter side—all of which led to the release last October of her third album, Prism, that has since produced the chart-toppers “Roar” and “Unconditionally” and debuted at No. 1 with the biggest sales week of her career. Got all that?
Being Perry is a vigorous effort, even as she shoots whipped cream out of her bra and sings about kissing girls and teenage dreams to hordes of “KatyCat” fans. Her last album, Teenage Dream, tied with Michael Jackson’s Bad for the most No. 1 hits (five) off of a single record, and her multimillion-dollar empire includes partnership deals with CoverGirl, Eylure eyelashes, and Popchips; three best-selling fragrances (Purr, Meow!, and Killer Queen); and voicing Smurfette in The Smurfs movies. And she’s not about to slow down now. “I’m never going to be lazy, because there are 500 other people waiting in line for this position,” she says.
Today, the 29-year-old singer-songwriter is in rehearsals at the CenterStaging studios in Burbank, California, for her tour that kicks off in May and will travel all over the globe through fall 2015. In a faded zip-up Aviator Nation sweatshirt borrowed from boyfriend John Mayer and leopard-print sweatpants, Perry looks more like a track athlete at an away game than pop’s reigning Teen Dream Pop Queen. Around her, dancers and backup vocalists warm up, and band members rehearse “Roar,” which Perry will perform later in the week on Saturday Night Live. Her assistant lugs four large black bags, explaining that these are Perry’s closet giveaways; crew members draw a number and take turns going through the mountains of clothing that Perry is off-loading. (She is generous with concert tickets, too. On tour, she bikes around in a baseball cap and sweats with 10 tickets in her pocket to give to unsuspecting kids.)
If you wonder how Perry has time for a personal life with all this empire-building, often that is part of the enterprise, too. “I feel like my secret magic trick that separates me from a lot of my peers is the bravery to be vulnerable and truthful and honest. I think you become more relatable when you’re vulnerable. When you try to market yourself like some supernatural figurine who can’t be fucked with, I always resort back to Scripture: Pride comes before a fall.”
I’ve updated the gallery with magazine covers & scans from the latter half of 2013 (October-December) — many more to be added in a future update, I’m sure! Some of the photoshoots are truly stunning. Gallery links & previews are below, enjoy!

My name is Angie and I’m the new owner of Katy Perry Source, with Jess helping out from time to time. :)
As you can see, the gallery has been completely reorganized — with the removal of candids — as I don’t believe in posting images that intrudes on a celebrity’s privacy, including images that were taken outside of a public appearance. Thank you for understanding.
Stay tuned for further updates!
Get ready to “Roar:” Katy Perry has a new gig, and it’s a good one.
The pop star, who’s long been known for her lovely, bold and often irreverent beauty looks, has been tapped to be the latest CoverGirl spokesmodel for a series of ads that will debut in Spring 2014. This first-look photo shows the star with a soft, fresh face, complete with long lashes, rosy cheeks and just a hint of that ’90s style she’s been rocking lately.
“In addition to music, I’ve always considered makeup to be a powerful creative avenue of self-expression,” Perry (who has made forays into beauty before with a fragrance and eyelash line) said in a statement. “I’m honored to partner with CoverGirl and share more colors and textures of my approach to beauty to inspire my audience.”
And though this first shot is somewhat subdued, the release promises to showcase “a breadth of bold new beauty looks” highlighting products developed by legendary makeup artist (and the brand’s global creative director) Pat McGrath. “Katy is the embodiment of a true CoverGirl — someone we root for, identify with, and get inspiration from,” said Esi Eggleston Bracey, VP and General Manager. “We have been admirers of her music and her style for a long time, and are looking forward to a beautiful journey together.”
Are you loving Katy Perry’s new role as CoverGirl spokesmodel? What beauty looks are you hoping to see in her ads?
As you can see we have a lovely new layout by Sara at Grey Street Design. I hope you love it as much as I do.
