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.”

Katy Perry says Russell Brand was “a magical man” when they met four years ago, but the spell wore off shortly after their Indian wedding in October 2010. And it bottomed out when the actor sent her a text 14 months later informing her he planned to file for divorce.
“He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him,” Perry tells Vogue in a revealing cover interview for its July issue. “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.”
Perry, 28, says that Brand, 38, seemed to have difficulty accepting her role as a successful musician and businesswoman – even if that’s what he thought he wanted.
“At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness,” she says.
Perry moved on with musician John Mayer in 2012, and says their coupling was much more than a casual rebound relationship. Desite his lothario reputation, she says, Mayer is a great guy with a “tortured soul.”
“I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him,” says Perry, who was spotted out with Mayer earlier this month.
Adds the pop star, who is currently at work on her third album, “All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind. Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.”
The 28-year-old singer, who notably toned down her wild style in the past year, has landed her very first Vogue cover, shot by famed photographer Annie Liebovitz.
Wearing a floral off-the-shoulder dress and rocking bright red lips, Katy covers the July issue, whose cover interview promises to delve into her “her life, her loves,” and her ‘”fresh, romantic look.”
Perry’s full cover story and spread will be available on Vogue.com this Tuesday, June 18.
And it seems to be a month of firsts for Perry! The singer just joined Instagram, her first picture being a tease of her left eye for her upcoming Vogue cover.

Move aside Josie and the Pussycats, Katy and the Popcats may become the newest girl group of superheroes if Katy Perry’s new Popchips commercial is any indication.
In the three and a half minute advertisement, the “Firework” singer joins with some colorfully wigged felines as they fight to save the public from fat cat and his fatty snacks.
Of course, the video ends with an indication that the group hasn’t seen the last of the portly villain.
Sharing the video with her Twitter followers, Katy captioned it, “Cats. Wigs. @popchips. Meow.” Check out the video below!

It’s been nearly a year since her divorce was officially finalised (with a smiley face no less), so it’s about time Katy Perry started chatting about it in interviews.
The former Mrs Russell Brand was at the ASCAP ‘I Create Music’ Expo in Hollywood when a brave reporter asked her about the two tracks on her album which are clearly about the split – Part of Me and Wide Awake.
And the Fireworks singer addressed the question head on.
“It’s a very tiny elephant…it’s like a little tchotchke now,” she said. “The Big D – you can say it!”
For those wondering what the heck a ‘tchotchke’ is, Wikipedia tells us it’s a Yiddish word meaning ‘small bauble or trifle with connotations of worthlessness or disposability and tackiness’.
I have added 5 HQ images from a 2012 photoshoot to the gallery. These are the same images used on the current main site and gallery layouts. I hope you like them.

Singer Katy Perry says performing her single Firework at a charity fundraiser with autistic fan Jodi DePiazza has been her career’s highlight.
The 28-year-old singer shared the stage with DePiazza, 11, at a taping of Comedy Central’s show Night of Too Many Stars last year. Her fan had played the piano and sang along with Perry.
“Firework is the most important song I’ve written. Performing it with an autistic girl accompanying her on piano and vocal harmony at a fundraiser was the most important performance of my career,” Perry said at the ASCAP I Create Music Expo.
