Katy Perry has added radio disc jockey to her list of talents, curating a station for the new iTunes Radio feature that was unveiled on Wednesday when Apple debuted iOS7, the company’s latest operating system. Perry’s Apple station includes the requisite plug for her new album, “Prism” (in the form of new single “Dark Horse”), as well as songs by Robyn, Haim, Icona Pop, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Iggy Azalea and Drake. “Drake is so sensitive, but yet still so cool,” Perry says as she introduces Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” in one of the station’s pre-produced song introductions . “It’s a hard balance to find: emotional guys who are sensitive but strong. […] I listen to it with my boyfriend, so I suggest listening to it with whoever you want to make out with.” Perry’s current beau is John Mayer. Perry isn’t the only pop star infatuated with the emotional rapper-singer. Here’s Perry’s friend, Rihanna, quoting Drake on Twitter: It’s yours…nobody else’s Loading Slideshow Celebrity Photos: September 2013 Lea Michele left the Meche Salon after getting her hair done in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Sept. 19.

Bengals fans not feelin’ Katy Perry
“She led her album with a club song, not a pop track, and with a song that needed its video to seem brilliant,” adds Levy. THE THROWBACK BRITNEY SPEARS, TITLE TBD (DEC. 3) Britney Spears attends the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. Picture: Getty Images Source: Getty Images What we know: The album’s release will align with the debut of Spears’ two-year residency at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Dec. 27. Released this week, the up-tempo song Work Bitch finds the singer dusting off her kooky British accent. Will.i.am executive-produced the album; William Orbit, who revitalised Madonna’s career with 1998’s Ray of Light, is also involved. Spears has said the lyrics reference her recent breakup with fiance Jason Trawick, and that her favourite track is the Sia-penned Perfume. What we don’t know: Will Will.i.am’s touch be magic or tragic? Sure, he’s cranked out all those earworms with the Black-Eyed Peas, but they’re not exactly critically lauded. Still, Levy notes: “Working with a single producer is smart, because it creates a coherence. Frankly, that’s never been there [for Britney].” Anticipation level: 3/5 America has a soft spot for Spears. “The public gives her leeway because her breakdown was sensational,” says Sam Lansky, senior editor of the music site Idolator.com. “Her ascent back seemed so difficult, people are still rooting for her.” Style status: 1/5 At least the Uggs are gone.
Katy Perry Does A Miley! See Stars Wearing 90s Double Top Knots
But Katy Perry? Nuh uh. The Cincinnati Bengals found out that the hard way, when they played the bubblegum pop star’s song, “Roar,” before, during and after Monday’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Paul Brown Stadium. It was the song to which the Bengals entered the field. If you’re not familiar with it, behold: Fans erupted, but not in the good way. Dear @Bengals music director, please no more Katy Perry songs at games. That’s not football music. #lame Patrick (@PDoomcats) September 17, 2013 Original reports didn’t have any numerical estimation on how many complaints the Bengals received, but clearly it was enough to rattle the team into action. “I think some fans proved that there’s an expectation that when the team takes the field, there should be more of a hard-rock, classic-rock song and I know that’s what we’re going to do this game,” Jeff Berding, the Bengals’ director of sales and public affairs, told The Wall Street Journal . “Katy Perry is not going to be the last song you hear before the team takes the field.” HARDWOOD TO HOLLYWOOD And all sports in between. Plenty of Tinseltown’s biggest names once excelled in athletics . Even the shallowest investigative efforts would have revealed NFL fans would not respond positively to Katy Perry as pregame intro music.
But before you imagine K Pez on stage with a roaming foam finger and her tongue hanging out of her mouth, we’re talking about the hair. Katy doubled up, wearing her hair in Minnie Mouse-esque top knots. It’s all very Cheryl Cole circa 2010. This is a whole new look for Katy Perry as she went back a decade or two with a metallic choker, red wine lips, cross earrings and a 90s-tastic bomber jacket. Perhaps someone has been taking style tips from her BFF RiRi who is also in a Courtney Love phase ? Miley Cyrus has been championing the double top knot, which was worn by Bjork and Gwen Stefani back in the 90s. The internet might have compared Miley to Jim Carey , Coolio and Crazy Eyes from Orange Is The New Black but the look is on the up. It makes sense, seeing as Miley is now the most googled person on the planet. Instagram is all in knots as model Anja Konstantinova and Rita Ora regularly post ‘double top knot’ selfies. But this isn’t just for Hoxton hipsters, as planet fashion has championed this 90s crown. Vanessa Hudgens wore her hair in knots on the cover of Paper Magazine last year and Cara Delevingne did a Bjork for her DKNY x Opening Ceremony campaign. Would you? Could you? Dig out your Salt n’ Pepa tapes and take a look through the gallery below to get some 90s hair-spiration.
