Listen to her! Rihanna, who called blasphemy Lady GaGa’s video!

Everybody knows that Katy Perry will marry Russell Brand (if they didn’t somewhat secretly married already), but the singer doesn’t dream at a white wedding dress, she wants to wear a latex dress in her wedding day.

Katy Perry: “I’m not a traditional type of person in general but after we get married we have decided we are not going to talk to the media about our relationship.

“This whole new process is exciting and everyone wants to know the details. But after we are married, we’re not going to say anything about us. When you notice we’ve stopped talking about it, we will finally be married.”

Back on the strip dance

Katy Perry said in a radio interview that she is nonconformist. Moreover, she said she hoped that her good friend Rihanna will strip at her bachelorette party:

“Well you know you see people coming and they strip at your bachelorette party? I want her to strip at my bachelorette party,” she confirmed to Chicago’s Kiss FM.

“She’s hot and I love her and she’s just like the coolest chick and I want all of her clothes,” she said.

Katy also revealed how Rihanna kindly offered to take care of what is expected to be a lively hen night.

“Rihanna hopped on the bandwagon of doing it, and was like ‘I’m gonna do it!” she said. “I was like, ‘okay.’ That’s the one thing I don’t have to plan which I’m really excited about.”

Well … yes. Does anyone really expect anything else from a singer who says: “I Kissed A Girl … And I Liked It”?

Madonna sued for using the Material Girl Brand illegally

It seems that the company filed a lawsuit against the singer claiming she soled their trademark. The L.A. Triumph’s attorney said: ‘Our client and its predecessor have been continually selling similar clothes in similar retail outlets at similar price points under their Material Girl brand since at least 1997 and Madonna and her new-found company do not have the right to trade in the same space under this brand.’

Even so, Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes, 13, was the one that designed the Material Girl Brand, that Madonna is being sued now. The singer told People magazine how Lourdes inspired the clothing line: ‘I usually tell her to take off her three-inch or six-inch platforms and pull her skirt down just a little bit and take off some of the black eye makeup.

‘My role is really to make sure we were all going in the right direction … and it was a line that I could stand behind and be proud of and feel good about and one that she could also feel represented her. … ‘I really like the way Lola dresses, and I think this line is absolutely an extension of her taste.’

Actress Taylor Momsen, 17, was the image of Material Girl Brand launched several weeks ago by Madonna in the Macy’s stores. Until now, no comments were given by Madonna concerning this matter.
