8/11/14: Recently, Katy Perry has lamented that she wishes she had gotten a better eduation when she was young. When she was a child, her family was constantly moving in order to start new churches, so she bounced from school to school and was even homeschooled for a little while. The singer later dropped out of high school at age 15, earning her GED instead, in order to pursue her career. She now has a campaign, “Make Roar Happen”, that raises money for teachers, which is what brought about her reflection on education in the first place. The pop icon has said that she is still thirsting for knowledge, and takes advantage of as many learning opportunities as possible while she's on tour.
07/21/2104: Katy Perry has the most followers out of any user on Twitter, so it is essential that her tweets are accurate, especially when they concern current events and tragedies like the recent crashing of the Malaysian Airlines MH17 flight in the Middle East. Perry, who is very involved with UNICEF, a charity that promotes child welfare, tweeted her condolences to the UNICEF volunteers aboard the flight. The problem? There were no UNICEF volunteers on board. After it was verified that Perry's information was invalid, the mis-tweet was deleted. It is still uncertain where Perry received the false information.
07/08/2104: Katy might be in a bit of a bind. It has been reported that she is currently dealing with copyright lawsuits concerning certain samples in her recent song, “Dark Horse”. Flame, a gospel singer, is suing Katy Perry. He claims that the pop star illegally sampled his tune, “Joyful Noise” in the making of her hit single, “Dark Horse”. The case has not been settled yet, but fans are hoping they'll still be able to jam to “Dark Horse” on the radio after this is all said and done.
07/01/2014: Katy Perry, who's trademark was once shooting whipped cream into the audience from her bra, has seriously toned down the raciness of her performances. Rather than strutting around in sexy little outfits, her costumes were endearing and chic. Every seat in the house was sold out, and the audience was entertained by light shows, dazzling special effects, and fantastic music. Some even thought the show was a bit too censored. At one point, Perry commented that she has slowly decided to become an adult. Perhaps this maturity will bleed into her music as well.
06/24/2014: Although there is a significant amount of time until the next presidential race begins, it seems Katy Perry has already agreed to support Hilary Clinton, assuming she runs. During the past weekend, Katy posted a picture of the two posing with Clinton's new book, Hard Choices. She also tweeted that she would be willing to compose a “theme” song for Clinton if she needs it. Clinton responded by pointing out that Katy had already done so with her song, “Roar”. Clinton's bus played “Roar” at her next book signing.
06/15/2014: Are Rob Pattinson and Katy Perry just friends, or is there more to the story? It was said that the two were extremely flirty with one another at the after-party for Rob's new movie, “The Rover”. A few sources have also reported overhearing Rob tell his buddies that Katy looked “so hot” that night. However, Katy has referred to Rob as her little brother in the past, and has commented that she is proud of the abstinence between them. Perhaps those sentiments have changed considering the flirty after-party encounter.
