American Idol fans have waited a lifetime for a moment like this. Captain Fierce of Funkytown is a free man. Although Adam Lambert and Drake LaBry squashed last month's breakup rumors with a follow-up public make-out session, a source confirmed to Usmagazine.com that the two have decided to call it quits. It appears that the breakup was a mutual, amicable decision, prompted by Adam's busy schedule.
In true celebrity style, pop star Katy Perry and actor/comedian Russell Brand are fast-tracking their new relationship. The two have been inseparable since making headlines with their VMA after-party snog-fest last month, and are now rumored to already be looking for a Hollywood Hills love nest.
Don't get us wrong. We like kissing. We like it a lot. And we want everyone who enjoys kissing to be able to kiss whomever they want (as long as it's all consensual, of course). But here's where we've had it: girl-on-girl kissing. Not the kissing itself. But the ridiculous hullabaloo that erupts around it. What's the big deal? Why do people care? And why do straight female celebrities (yes, you, Megan Fox and Katy Perry) keep making such a big deal out of the fact that they've done it?
Pop stars Josh Groban and Katy Perry are evidently just "very close friends." This comes from Groban's rep Luke Berland. The gossip of a couplehood between Perry and Groban came fresh off the heels of a rumor that she was dating Benji Madden. Which begs the question; is she manipulating the media to get more attention?
Listen up. Katy Perry is an absolute delight. You never know what you're going to get from the "I Kissed A Girl" singer. First she's kissing girls and liking it, then she's not making a habit out of it. After that, she got engaged but it didn't really happen. Then she broke up and went celibate. But then we find out that she was just funning on us. Then we find out that she's dating Benji Madden, but it turns out that they aren't "bumping uglies." Katy Perry is an absolute hoot, God broke the mold with that one.
Tucking your tail between your legs and saying sorry is not an easy thing to do, but when we're wrong, we're wrong. We'd like to apologize to Madonna and Guy Ritchie for jumping the gun on their divorce settlement, to Katy Perry for false reporting her engagement, to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for thinking about mentioning their prenup, to Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez for mentioning that they may break up and to Tom Cruise for all the weird rumors. Sorry all.
Word on the street is that Katy Perry's inspiration for "I Kissed A Girl" was Scarlett Johansson. This was news to the diminutive actress but she's flattered. While she's talking shop, she is incredibly protective of her relationship with Ryan Reynolds, so you'll have to buy the book to hear more about that one (assuming that one day there will be a book). And her odd relationships with Woody Allen and Lindsay Lohan.
If you haven't already seen it, check out Katy Perry's video for "I Kissed A Girl." The song is number one on Billboard's Hot 100 and the "I Kissed a Girl" video is a perfect pop confection: slightly transgressive, pinks, full of girls dancing in lacy reds and golds, feathers, guitars.
No matter what lovestage you're in, a girl crush is a way to satisfy your craving for infatuation and remind yourself of your best qualities. YourTango explores the intense platonic feelings of admiration, inspiration or just plain excitement another woman can inspire. "Lately, it seems like everyone has one. Hardly a tabloid goes by without announcing Lindsay Lohan's new best friend or Britney Spears's latest source of emotional support. What's more, you don't have to attend boarding school or emulate Cynthia Nixon to play this game. A girl crush is strictly platonic, an admission that a head over-heels tumble can just as easily be set off by a budding friendship as by an office flirtation—no strings (or kissing) attached. Best of all, girl crushes need never stop. Whether you're single or taken, a girl crush is a way to satisfy your craving for infatuation and remind yourself of your best qualities. Unless you have some seriously possessive women in your life, there's always room for a few more friends."
