Katy Perry and John Mayer Celebrate His 35th Birthday in NYC (PHOTOS)

It seems Katy Perry won’t be recording a John Mayer break-up ballad anytime soon.

After speculation of a split swirled late August, the singers have been putting rumors to rest this week as they hit the town in New York City. A mere two days after they were spotted dining à deux on Sunday night at Pearl restaurant, Perry and Mayer again stepped out side-by-side on Tuesday to celebrate his 35th birthday.

Where were the on-again-off-again pair spotted?

Mayer, 34, and Perry, 27, grabbed grub at Manhattan’s ABC Kitchen.

The chart-topping couple first sparked romance rumors in June, when the singers were reportedly caught cozying up at the Soho House in West Hollywood —  even though Perry was still in the midst of finalizing her divorce from husband Russel Brand. In August, the Grammy winners were snapped leaving the Chateau Marmont in the same car. Later that month, though, reports surfaced that the two had split. But come early September, the talented couple cozied up at Little Door eatery in Los Angeles.

Since announcing her divorce from funnyman Russell Brand in December 2011, Perry has been linked to male model Baptiste Giabiconi and Florence + The Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd.

Katy Perry and John Mayer Back On: Singers Spotted in NYC (PHOTOS)

Katy Perry and John Mayer may just be making sweet music together again.

The two were spotted grabbing a bite to eat at Pearl restaurant in Manhattan on Sunday night.

And the fun didn’t stop there…

After their dinner date, Perry and Mayer made their way to the SoHo House.

The “Teenage Dream” singer, 27, donned a lacy olive green, floor-length frock for the outing. Opting for a bit of modesty, she covered up with a fitted body suit underneath the dress, but added some edge with a black wide-brim hat and leather bomber.

Mayer, 34, matched his date for the evening: he sported olive/khaki colored trousers, along with brown boat shoes and a blue button-down.

 

The pair first sparked romance rumors in June after getting chummy at the Soho House in LA. In August, the Grammy  winners were snapped leaving the Chateau Marmont in the same car. But later that month, reports swirled that the two had split.

Since announcing her divorce from funnyman Russell Brand in December 2011, Perry has been linked to male model Baptiste Giabiconi and Florence + The Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd.

Katy Perry Auctions Off Night at a Gay Bar + Performs at amfAR Gala

Sex sells indeed.

Katy Perry performed at the amfAR Gala this week, benefiting AIDS research, and auctioned off a signed guitar for the cause… as well as a night at a gay bar and in bed!

E! Online reports that Perry sweetened the pot of an autographed guitar on auction by yelling, “I’ll have sex with you, too!” As a result, Joe Francis of ‘Girls Gone Wild’ fame bid $10,000. Perry later offered to take the winning bidder for a night out at famed gay bar The Abbey. However, Francis wasn’t the big winner. New York Giants owner Steve Tisch pledged $32,000 for the winning bid, at which point Perry hugged him and said, “I’m going to have sex with you.” Keepin’ it classy, Katy!

For her performance, Perry crooned her hits ‘Wide Awake,’ ‘Firework’ and a cover of Bonnie Raitt’s ‘Can’t Make You Love Me.’ Before launching into the cover tune, Perry said, “This song needs no introduction.” Maybe John Mayer was on her mind!

It’s the second cover she’s performed at a benefit recently. The ‘Hummingbird Heartbeat’ singer also covered Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ at a fundraiser for President Obama’s reelection campaign. Is she turning into cover queen Kelly Clarkson?

Kate Hudson, Katy Perry, Sarah Jessica Parker Rocked the Red Carpet at the amfAR Inspiration Gala: See All the Night’s Fashion Hits and Misses (VIDEO & GALLERY)

The red carpet was all about statement-making fashion at last night’s star-studded amfAR Inspiration Gala in L.A..

Kate Hudson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katy Perry and Alessandra Ambrosio were among the stylish A-listers pushing the sartorial boundaries in everything from daring dresses and flirty frocks to fashion-forward jumpsuits and even shorts.

Which stars took a risk that paid off — and which fashion rebels missed the mark?

The night’s clear winner, Hudson was on fire, sizzling in a revealing red dress by Prabal Gurung. The figure-hugging gown’s plunging neckline left little to the imagination, but the draped cut-out sleeves kept the look from being all about Kate’s cleavage.

Ambrosio also rocked a sexy curve-hugging  Zuhair Murad gown. The fitted corset and column silhouette highlighted the Victoria’s Secret model’s curves, while the train added just the right amount of drama, which was further heightened by the corseted back.

SJP took a different kind of risk, donning a vintage Chanel black jumpsuit. Though jumpsuits can be hard to pull off, the Sex and the City actress rocked the fashion-forward look with aplomb. A fitted bodice balanced out the black one-piece’s billowy bottoms and prevented the petite star from getting lost in the style. A tassel necklace added a modern finish to the monochromatic look.

Also shunning a dress in favor of a two-legged style, Rose McGowan, in short shorts and sheer tights, came up … well, short. While shorts can work for night, especially when worn with a fancier top and tights, the sequined jacket and sheer tights were more Rockette than red carpet.

Although we’re fans of Perry’s new sophisticated take on the feminine accents and candy-colored hues she favors, her dusty gray and pink floral dress was a step backward. The singer appeared to be stuck in limbo between the ladylike looks in her future and the girly costumes of her past, with girly accents galore — floral appliques, ruffled neckline and sparkly belt — decorating the more sophisticated silhouette.

To see our complete list of the night’s hits and misses, watch the video above. And for all the evening’s fashion, check out our gallery below.

Now it’s your turn: Tell us who you think were the night’s fashion winners and flops?

Travie McCoy Reveals Katy Perry Breakup Helped Him Beat Drug Addiction

It’s been a while since Travie McCoy from Gym Class Heroes and Katy Perry were an item, huh? We kinda almost forgot they were a couple long ago, but since breaking up and her marriage (and divorce) from Russell Brand, McCoy has opened up about his time with his ex.

VH1 is know for their ‘Behind the Music’ specials. Usually, there’s some sort of revelation that happens, considering it’s a program that discusses what the personal lives of our favorite musicians are like behind the scenes. On McCoy’s episode, airing Oct. 14, he talked about his decision to kick his drug habit.

After four failed attempts at rehab (yes, four) to try and kick the addiction, it was his breakup with Perry in 2009 that struck a nerve for him to get clean. “I was sick of trying to feed this monster … If I didn’t do something, I was gonna end up dead,” he says in the clip.

McCoy also recalls an all-time low when he woke up one morning and headed straight to the medicine cabinet in his bathroom to look for pills. Staring at himself in the mirror for a half hour, he says he face was sunken in and he had “awful rings” under his eyes. “It wasn’t me,” he said.

It just goes to show that sometimes heartache be for the best. It forces you to take a good hard look at yourself, and in cases like Travie’s, just might end up saving your life.

Katy Perry, Rihanna and Beyoncé: Stars With Political Nail Art (GALLERY)

How do Hollywood women show their patriotism? With political-inspired nail art, of course!

Katy Perry is the latest lady to hop on the bandwagon. At President Barack Obama’s star-studded 30 Days to Victory concert fundraiser on Sunday Night, the “Firework” singer tweeted a snap of her “appropriate nails,” which were adorned with Obama’s face, the Democratic donkey and red, white, and blue stars and stripes.

Putting her pro-Bama manicure on full display, Perry took the stage — during a line-up that also included Jennifer Hudson, Jon Bon Jovi, Earth, Wind & Fire and Stevie Wonder — to belt out Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together,” which the POTUS famously purred during a January fundraiser. “Today I am so honored to play for the President!” she tweeted.

What other stars have styled their tips politically?

Back during Obama’s first bid for the White House in 2008, singer-rapper Eve chose change — putting a photo of the then-Chicago politician on her thumbnail.

And after he took office, Rihanna followed in Eve’s footsteps. During her performance at the NFL Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Concert in 2009, RiRi sported a Obama’s portrait on her pinky fingernail.

Obama super-supporter Beyoncé put her die-hard patriotism on display with a stars-and-stripes manicure in her and Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” music video. And her sister took it a step further, flashing ten fingers full of presidential nail art.

Maybe soon we’ll see some Mitt Romney tips? But for now, see which celebrities are getting in on the trend in Celebuzz‘s gallery.

Pop Stars Show Off Patriotism Prior to 2012 Election – Picture Perfect

President Obama Beyonce Kesha Katy Perry

The 2012 presidential election is right around the corner, and from the look of things, it seems as if most pop stars are in support of President Barack Obama. We’ve collected pictures of singers like Beyonce, Katy Perry and others showing their support for our current president’s re-election, from holding fundraising events for Obama to sporting Obama-themed manicures and dresses. 

While Mitt Romney has proven a worthy opponent, it seems like Obama has won over the celebrity circle, with his supporters including Beyonce, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and more. Beyonce and her hubby Jay-Z are very outspoken about their support of Obama, and they recently raised a ton of money for Obama’s campaign at their 40/40 club fundraiser, which President Obama attended. While there, he posed for pictures with the famous power couple, sharing a laugh with Bey and Jay and brushing that dirt off his shoulders.

Then there’s the huge amount of younger pop stars like Justin Bieber, Victoria Justice, Big Time Rush and Taylor Swift who have either participated in events (like the White House Christmas concert or Michelle Obama’s Day of Play) or met the Obama family. Justin Bieber also likes to take his support one step further (despite the fact that he can’t vote being Canadian), like posing for a funny picture with an Obama wax statue.

There are also celebrities like Kesha and Miley Cyrus, who haven’t been too clear on their political stances, but sport patriotic garb to show their love for America as a whole. Then there’s Snoop Dogg, who has formulated a very detailed (and hilarious) list of reasons why he is voting for Obama as opposed to Mitt Romney. Check out all of these patriotic pop star pictures and let us know who you’re supporting in the comments below.

Amy Poehler Slips Into Wedding Dress for ‘They Came Together’: 19 Celebrity ‘Brides’ Spotted On Set (PHOTOS)

Just weeks after announcing she had separated from husband Will Arnett, Amy Poehler was spotted in a wedding dress — for work, that is.

The 41-year-old actress slipped into a frilly bridal gown to shoot scenes for her upcoming movie with Paul Rudd, We Came Together. Complete with white heels and a long veil, the Parks and Recreation star was all smiles as she strutted down the streets of New York City.

She isn’t the first celeb we’ve seen “get hitched” on set.

In true Hollywood fashion, TV and movie weddings have since moved from sets on sound stages to locations open to the public. Since many of these scenes are now shot on location, fans can peep at their favorite celebs in lavish gowns.

Sexiest Woman Alive Mila Kunis was seen “tying the knot” in a gorgeous mermaid-styled bridal dress on the set of Ted, while Katy Perry opted for a untraditional ’80s-inspired pink dress for her “big day” during a music video shoot.

And who can forget Carrie Bradshaw — um, Sarah Jessica Parker — and her stunning Vivienne Westwood princess gown, complete with a peacock-feathered fascinator.

Launch the gallery above for more celebrity “brides” spotted on set.

Britney Spears Releases Ad for Her Newest Fragrance, ‘Fantasy Twist’

Britney Spears is adding another fragrance to her already-impressive perfume collection.

Spears’ latest scent, Fantasy Twist, combines her two best-selling perfumes – Midnight Fantasy and Fantasy – into one chic bottle, so fans can switch off between the two scents or mix them together for a unique twist.

More on Spears’ new fragrance — and its sexy new ad — after the jump.

Housed in an orb-like container that’s divided into pink and blue sides — Spears’ favorite colors — the bottle twists apart to reveal the two fragrances.

The two-in-one perfume is perfect if you’re one of those women who likes to mix and match your perfume to your mood: Midnight Fantasy offers an exotic mixture of woody musks and white patchouli, while Fantasy is a fruitier option with hints of jasmine and red lychee.

Why combine these seemingly contradictory scents? Not just another celebrity fragrance, Spears’ perfume pairing is meant to address the many — and often contradictory — sides to our personalities.

In the black-and-white ad for Fantasy Twist, shot by famed photographer Ellen von Unwerth, Spears channels the different sides of her own personality, dressing up in two different Cleopatra-esque looks that appear to be mirror images of each other.

Mimicking the two-sided bottle, on one side of the ad, the pop star sports long blonde locks and an extravagant feathered costume, while on the other side, Spears channels a more mysterious vibe, posing in a sleek black bob and dress.

The new ads are timed with the upcoming release of the perfume, which will be sold exclusively at Kohl’s, this month (from $39.50 to $59.50; Kohls.com).

Will you pick up Spears new combo perfume — or do you prefer to stick to a single signature scent? Tell us in the comments section below.
