Yesterday I tweeted that I thought it was time for Katy Perry to release the video for the smash hit, Roar. That obviously worked… I’m powerful that way 😉 Jokes, anyways. The video is finally out and I just love it. Ms. Perry is looking gorgeous as ever, as she plays a Jane (Tarzan and Jane) like character in this one. Fun video and it has already amassed over 1.7million views. BIG UP lady.
The song is currently sitting at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Katy Perry’s Roar dethroned the song of the summer, Robin Thicke‘s Blurred Lines. So Katy has a lot to Roar about. Her new album, Prism is expected to drop on the 22nd of October. Cannot wait for the new offering!
UPDATE: Below is the cover of Katy Perry’s Prism. Beautiful huh?
YAY!!! Katy Perry is back. Her new single, Roar unofficially hit the web at the weekend. It will be released today on iTunes and I’m certain we’re going to be hearing a lot more of it in the weeks to come. Roar is taken off Katy’s forthcoming album, Prism, which is expected to drop on the 22nd of October. I love this woman’s energy. She’s fun, intelligent, likable and just my type of person. Groupie moment done, have a listen and #ROAR!!!
Next week Katy Perry makes her movie debut. It’s called Katy Perry: Part Of Me 3D and its set to be one of the big blockbusters of 2012. Will it live up to everyone’s expectations? Well with 75million records sold worldwide, there is no doubt in my mind that she will hit number one. In the film we get to see more than just what we see on stage. We get to see Katy as a young blonde girl. We get to see her rise to fame and of course we get to see and hear more about her marriage and subsequent divorce to Russel Brand.
There are two things I’d like to raise here. One is this, I watched this report by ABC News and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is the sort of media work I intend on doing as I progress in this industry. It’s fun, but it’s cleverly crafted and well produced. Nice work ABC News. Secondly I like this trend of singers making films about their lives and their rise to fame. The other day there was literally nothing to watch on TV except Justin Bieber‘s Never Say Never film. While I’m not his demographic and therefore not such a fan, I’ve always respected the star. I reluctantly settled in to watch the film and after ten minutes I was hooked. It’s incredible to see how far he has come, how long his journey to becoming the Bieber we know him to be was (despite his age) and how talented he really is. I feel we’re going to see something very similar with Katy Perry.
As for love, does she still believe in it? “Of course. I’m going to let love lead the way and I think I will stick to it. So yes.” Love you Katy 😉
Katy Perry: Part Of Me 3D releases in South African cinemas on the 7th of September.
When editor-in-chief of Maxim magazine, Joe Levy says he thinks singer Katy Perry is “triple – no quadruple – kind of hot,” I completely, 150% agree. This comes to light as the “California Gurls” singer was named the number 1 hottie in the magazine’s hottest 100 list. Levy went on to say, “It’s that feeling you get when you suddenly realize that the smartest, funniest, coolest girl you know also happens to the best looking and a pretty good skateboarder, too.”
I’ve always been a fan of Katy Perry because of her free spirit and fun lyrics, but when I saw her guest judging on American Idol, I found myself not listening to what she had to say, but rather staring aimlessly at how beautiful she is. Those blue eyes… eish, hottie! Perry’s fiance, Russel Brand is one lucky man, that’s for sure!
Also on the list was Sports Illustrated swimwear model, Brooklyn Deckers (2), Gossip Girls’ Blake Lively, Rihanna, Zoe Saldana and more. Check out the full list here.
I feel this is going to be a big big year for Miss Perry, as she’s expected to drop her sophomore album soon. Can’t wait. So for your listening pleasure, here is the first single off that album. It’s called California Gurls and it features Snoop Dogg. Have a listen:
