Katy Perry

We throw around the phrase "beauty is pain" for a variety of situations - tweezing eyebrows, pushing through that last lap at the gym, even waking up an hour early to give our hair a little extra TLC - but apparently, in Katy Perry's case, the expression a bit of an understatement. According to a recent interview the "Wide Awake" singer gave with The Sun, Katy's insurers are pulling for her to shelve her iconic spinning peppermint bra for fear that the pop star may injure her neck. "Why would a candy-themed ladylump chariot have anything to do with her neck?" you might be shouting aloud at the computer screen. Well, Katy explains that, too.

Katy Perry has her own Barbie!

Nicki Minaj may have had the greater influence on the Barbie empire (and vice versa, of course), but that doesn't mean she's the only one who gets to have all the fun. In addition to Nicki's "Pink Friday" Barb, Mattel has also rolled out a one-of-a-kind Katy Perry Barbie for the very same Charity Buzz auction benefiting Project Angel Food, which provides food for those affected by HIV and AIDS. One lucky (and benevolent) winner gets this one-off Barb displayed in a model scene based off her "California Gurls" music video complete with a waffle cone stage, swirly lollipops, ice cream shrubbery, cotton candy clouds, and a sprinkling of gummi bears and clad in an exact replica of Katy's cupcake dress from her Candyfornia tour.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
