Katy Perry Drops New Single ‘Small Talk’ with Lyric Video


Katy Perry is over small talk.

The pop star, 34, dropped her newest single on Thursday night with a lyric video for the track, titled “Small Talk,” which is all about the awkward distance that happens between ex-lovers after a breakup.

Perry wrote the song with Jacob Kasher Hindlin, Johan Carlsson and Charlie Puth, with the latter two producing, and Peter Karlsson producing the vocals.

Perry teased the song earlier in the week with a sequence of photos shared on Instagram that included snippets of the song.

The Instagram posts included notes “from the desk of Katy Perry,” that featured lyrics from the song, her second single of 2019.

“Isn’t it weird / That you’ve seen me naked / We had conversations about forever / Now it’s about the weather okay,” read the first lyric.

The second note followed, “Isn’t it wild / That I know your weakness / And everybody at the party thinks / That you’re the best since sliced bread.”

“I just can’t believe / We went from strangers to lovers to / Strangers in a lifetime,” read the third revealing note. A fourth note, posted Wednesday morning, read, “Acting like we never met / Faking like we’d just forget / We were lovers.”

Perry and her collaborators slammed the decision in a statement obtained by Variety.

“The writers of ‘Dark Horse’ view the verdicts as a travesty of justice,” the statement said. “There is no infringement. There was no access of substantial similarity. The only thing in common is unprotectable expression — evenly spaced ‘C’ and ‘B’ notes — repeated. People including musicologists from all over are expressing their dismay over this.

“We will continue to fight at all appropriate levels to rectify the injustice,” the statement concluded, indicating that Perry’s team will likely be appealing the decision.

Kylie Jenner and Khloé Kardashian Hilariously Take 9 Shots as They Do Their Makeup


Kylie Jenner is taking her makeup routine to a whole new level by adding one hilarious extra step — getting drunk with big sister Khloé Kardashian.

On Thursday, Kylie, 21, shared a new “Get Ready with Me” video on her YouTube channel, which featured herself and Khloé, 35, testing out the makeup mogul’s Birthday Collection a.k.a. The Money Collection.

The Kylie Cosmetics founder opted to switch things up for this particular tutorial by taking shots of the bedazzled and engraved Don Julio 1942 Tequila Khloé gifted her on her 21st birthday.

During the vlog, Kylie tells Khloé that she wanted to film with her because “you’re my favorite sister … but don’t tell the rest.”

The youngest Kardashian/Jenner sister then reveals that she and Khloé will be attempting to do their best Birthday Collection looks while under the influence.

As they apply their concealer, it becomes apparent that the alcohol has kicked in as Khloé gasps in disgust as Kylie says, “I’ve honestly never done my makeup intoxicated, but I’m doing pretty good.”

Khloé then calls her best friend Malika Haqq before excitedly taking another shot of Don Julio — at this point they’ve taken six shots each. By the end of the video, the sisters took 9 shots.

They then call momager Kris Jenner and beg her to come and take shots with them.

Kris declines the invitation, but says, “You guys are drunky monkeys, but I love it.”

While Kris was unable to make an appearance, Kris’ boyfriend Corey Gamble shows up and watches them apply eyeshadow and of course takes a few shots.

That’s when Kim Kardashian West calls and her kids Saint, 3, and North, 6, say hi to their aunts.

Scott Disick‘s girlfriend Sofia Richie also makes a cameo in the clip.

Kylie’s birthday collection drops on Saturday the same day as her lavish birthday celebration in Capri, Italy.

For the occasion, Kylie has chartered the mega yacht Tranquility.

According to TMZ, the 300-ft. ship accommodates 22 guests, comes with a 29-person crew and costs about $1.2 million per week. It includes 10 cabins, a sauna, helipad, beauty salon, theater, steam room, Jacuzzi and swimming pool with underwater lights.

Richie, 20, and Disick, 36, are also on the trip and Kourtney Kardashian is expected to join her and Disick’s three kids at some point. Kris, 63, and Gamble, 38, are also on the trip and were photographed on the boat.

Hours after touching down, Kylie and boyfriend Travis Scott were spotted enjoying a date night in the romantic Italian city.

For the outing, Scott, 28, kept it cool in a white T-shirt and jeans while Kylie wore a Versace two-piece set paired with a black handbag, gold sandals and mini hoop earrings.

Kylie and Scott has previously sparked speculation that they would be tying the knot on the vacation after Kylie was spotted boarding a private plane with what looked like a wedding dress earlier this week.

A source has since told PEOPLE they have no such plans.

“It’s not Kylie’s wedding and she is only flying to Italy to celebrate her birthday,” said the source. “She had a big, successful year and she wanted to treat herself, her family and friends to the best party.”

Anne Hathaway Debuts Baby Bump in Fuchsia Pink Cut-Out Dress on Red Carpet at Broadway Opening


On Thursday, Hathaway, 36, debuted her baby bump on the red carpet at the Broadway opening of the play Sea Wall/A Life.

The actress wore a fuschia pink cut-out dress — which showed off her growing belly — paired with metallic heels and a rose-colored clutch. She styled her signature brunette tresses in loose waves.

Hathaway is expecting her second child with husband Adam Shulman, who attended the premiere, but was not pictured with her on the carpet. The couple, who tied the knot in September 2012, are already parents to son Jonathan Rosebanks, whom they welcomed in March 2016.

The Princess Diaries star announced she’s expecting baby number two last month alongside a black-and-white mirror selfie, showing off her baby bump under a loose-fitting white tank top.

“It’s not for a movie …⁣⁣ #2⁣,” she captioned the post, going on to hint that getting pregnant wasn’t exactly an easy journey for her and husband.

“⁣All kidding aside, for everyone going through infertility and conception hell, please know it was not a straight line to either of my pregnancies,” the actress added. “Sending you extra love 💕»

Just a few days after sharing the news, Hathaway said in an interview with the Associated Press that it was important to her to be honest that pregnancy didn’t come easy for her in an effort not to make others “feel even more isolated.”

“I didn’t just wave a magic wand and be like, ‘I want to be pregnant and, wow, it all worked out for me.’ It’s more complicated than that,’” said the Modern Love star during her appearance at a Television Critics Association panel. ” ‘Gosh, admire my bump now!’ It wasn’t like that.”

Hathaway mused about the “very one-size-fits-all approach to getting pregnant” she feels that, despite the “happy time” in “the majority of cases,” doesn’t apply to all people trying to conceive.

“[For] a lot of people who are trying to get pregnant, that’s not really the story. Or that’s one part of the story,” she told the AP. “And the steps that lead up to that part of the story are really painful and very isolating and full of self-doubt. And I went through that.”

The Oscar-winner revealed that she was “aware of the fact that when it came time to post that I was pregnant, somebody was going to feel even more isolated because of it.”

“I just wanted them to know they have a sister in me,” she said. “Our sisterhood is amazing, and we were kept from each other for a really long time because I think we were kept from our own stories. And we get to decide where the silence lives and where it goes away.”
