Katy Perry’s performance on Sesame Street axed by producers

[youtube]4272VkGdl00[/youtube]

Katy sang her hit Hot & Cold alongside puppet character Elmo but in a different version. Rumors say that parents who saw the video think Katy appears too sexy for a children show.

The show’s producers announced that Katy’s performance on Sesame Street will not be screened because of the “feedback we’ve received”. Nevertheless, the show can be watched on YouTube and also on Katy Perry’s website.

According to a rep, the singer enjoyed the time recording the video and her fans will be able to watch it again on her website. All in all, the show’s 41th season will air on 27 September and will guest star also Oprah Winfrey, Jason Bateman and Colin Farrell.

Russell Brand was arrested

While Russell and fiancé Katy Perry were making their way through LAX airport, an incident with paparazzi took place because he tried to photograph her too closely.

Brand was arrested due to pushing the paparazzi and striking others while he tried to defend Katy. The comedian was released later after he posted $20,000 bail.

Being so caught up with the incident, singer Katy Perry tweeted: “If you cross the line & try and put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me. ~standbyourman ~don’tf**kwiththeBrands.” Russell Brand did not commented on this arrest.

Our verdict – Katy Perry was the hottest girl at MTV VMA 2010!

Katy Perry showed up without her husband-to-be Russell Brand, who she started dating at last year’s show, but he wasn’t far from her mind, or hands. She had his picture glued on to her nails.

Lady Gaga, who always outdoes herself in the fashionably weird department, heated the carpet up in a bold look from the late Alexander McQueen‘s final collection.

UPDATE: After the carpet came the stage … Check out the haute-couture!!!

Ke$ha loves garbage chic and she kept that theme going at the MTV Video Music Awards with a dress made out of garbage bags. The “Tik Tok” singer claimed she got the bags at Home Depot and threw a little something together for the occasion.

Katy Perry admitted stealing from hotels

The singer, engaged to Russell Brand, revealed that she steals from every hotel she stays. “I do steal pillows from every single place I stay. It’s like ‘Princess and the Pea’ and I’m just laying on a bunch of pillows in a big room,” Katy said.

“When I was 17, I went to a really fancy hotel in Japan and stole everything. I was saying to the chambermaid, ‘More lotions please, more fancy chocolates please.’ ” Katy recently traveled around the globe to promote her album ‘Teenage Dream’.

“In the past four weeks alone I’ve been to Los Angeles, Malaysia, Singapore, London, Paris … I’m thankful to even be alive today,” she said. “I feel like I’m growing another head somewhere – my body is definitely reacting to all the traveling. I’ve been zig-zagging all over the world.
“My family are always asking me for my air miles, at least I never run out!”

Katy Perry and Eminem on top

The two singers made some interesting presence on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart. Eminem led the chart for seven weeks while Katy moved up to second place.

On no 4 and 5 on the Hot 100 was Enrique Iglesias with “I like it” song. Singer Taylor Swift’s and her new single “Mine” rebounded five places to No. 9.

Ke$ha succeeded to place on No. 10 with her “Take It Off” jumped. Kid Cudi and his “Erase Me” single came in at No. 22.

Katy Perry will present a reality show

ITV wants to sign a contract with Katy for some time now. Everybody thinks she is very appropriate for this, says a representative of the station, quoted by the British newspaper.

The singer, 25, became interested in television after she attended The X Factor. Perry is doing very well in England, her fiancé’s country, Russell Brand, and she wants to spend more time with the British public.

The show won’t be a reality show as we may expect but sort of an observation documentary. The singer is set to borrow her voice for the next movie from `The Smurfs` series.

Controversial Outfit – Rihanna VS Katy Perry

Katy Perry was desperate for Rihanna to perform a raunchy striptease at her bachelorette party. But we’ll get back to that later …

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”?

Katy Perry usually dresses … more unusual, in a Christmas machinery, in an outfit of torture that you can probably find in sex shops, in colorful dresses – like a Candy Cane, while Rihanna keep up with her, looking like a Snow White or like a rock star.

Lady Gaga received 13 nominations at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards

The second place in the top nominations of 2010 MTV Video Music Awards goes to Eminem, with eight nominations at eight different categories, thanks to the success enjoyed by his latest album, “Recovery.”

However, Canadian teen Justin Bieber, 16 years old, received his first VMA Award nomination for the video “Baby.”

Newcomer Ke$ha joined the veterans Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, Usher and indie band Florence and the Machine, among the nominees.

Lady Gaga was twice nominated in the category “video of the year” – for “Bad Romance” and “Telephone”, which plays alongside Beyonce – competing with Eminem (“Not Afraid”), Florence and the Machine (“Dog Days Are Over “), 30 Seconds to Mars (” Kings and Queens “) and rapper BoB (“Airplanes”).

After finding out that she has 13 nominations, Lady Gaga tweeted: “13 VMA noms lilmonsters. Breakin records+breakin rüles. I love you, you Bad Kids are a part of me. PAWS UP! #VideoMonsterAwards.”

“I’m so honored for all the little monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA nominations in a single year than any artist in MTV history. Ironically, I’m even more proud it’s an unlucky number: 13,” Lady Gaga said in a statement about her record-breaking year.

“A long time ago, the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard. Together we changed the rules. God put me on Earth for three reasons: to make loud music, gay videos and cause a damn ruckus. Thank you, MTV!”
