The Word: Katy Perry is ‘tired’ of her fabricated fame
Oh boo-hoo: Katy Perry, one of the most manufactured pop stars of the past decade, is fed up with fame, according to Teen Vogue. “I’m tired of being famous already! But I’m not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do,” Perry tells the magazine. “It’s a delicate creature — a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you. But really, I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago.”
Oh, so you wearing an ice cream bra, marrying a super famous actor and then divorcing him, riding “Teenage Dream” into the ground until it yielded as many No. 1 singles as “Thriller” and then recently releasing yet another version of that 2010 album (“Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection”) are all ploys to keep you under the radar? Yes, that totally makes sense.
Being famous and then complaining about being famous is so tiring. You can give it all up and live in a yurt, you know. It’s not that hard to not be a celebrity anymore. Just look at Tiffany. You can do that, too!
Lopez is the ultimate sugar mama
When it comes to her boy toy’s birthday, Jennifer Lopez, 42, really goes big. The singer reportedly gifted beau/backup dancer Casper Smart with a custom white Dodge pickup truck for his 25th birthday, according to People magazine. Lopez “knew that Casper really wanted a truck, and Casper was very excited about the generous gift,” a source says. “Casper was so excited about his new truck that he decided to drive it to dinner. She was smiling about Casper’s excitement.”
OK, first of all, whoever this “source” is needs to stop sounding like a quote-giving robot; no one talks like that. Second, considering how much shilling she’s been doing for Fiat, it’s surprising Lopez would buy American. Third: Isn’t dating Jennifer Lopez a gift enough? Smart better not get greedy.
