Katy Perry To Edit Beach Boys Reference Out Of “California Gurls”. Though Katy Perry has been riding a huge wave of success with her hit “California Gurls,” the Beach Boys are trying to crash it. They’re trying to get compensation for her own homage to West Coast women. Beach Boys’ infamous “California Girls,” or maybe not if you’re a young fan of Katy Perry’s, features the lyrics “I wish they all could be California girls.” On Perry’s hit, Snoop Dogg utters the line at the end of the song during what seems to be some recorded ad-libbing. But Rondor, the copyright owners for Beach Boys Brian Wilson and Mike Love’s original “California Girls,” want some of that “California Gurls” cash. They’re asking for royalties from the single, which has sold over 3 million digital copies. While Rondor is threatening to sue Perry for plagiarism, the singer has already addressed the issue in her latest Rolling Stone article. There, she basically states that the song will be undergoing some cuts. “As much as I want a Beach Boys credit on my album, we have to take it out,” Perry told Rolling Stone about the Snoop Dogg-uttered line. While Snoop Dogg won’t be wishing they all could be California girls anymore, the song will hit record stores on her upcoming album sans the Beach Boys as co-writers. “Teenage Dream,” Perry’s follow-up to “One of the Boys,” is out August 24th

For my wedding I’m going to do what I call wedding nails which is basically traditional and pretty. Because you see those photos where you’re holding each other’s hands and I don’t know if I’d like Oompa-Loompas on my nails while taking my photos. So I’m going to have wedding white nails.’ Katy also revealed she thinks Russell, 35, will be a great father when they eventually have children. She said: ‘We’re excited to get married, of course. I think in marriage, when you’re picking a partner, one of the things to keep in mind is would they be a good baby daddy and he’ll be perfect.”

And he basically used to be a professional prostitute and now he’s not.” “He’s an extremist, which can be both good and bad. I always needed someone stronger than me and I am like a f****** strong elephant of a woman. I say that hopefully in the humblest way I can.” Perry also recalled how they got together on the night they met. Brand was expecting her to go home with him but he was in for a surprise when she refused him.

Katy Perry has treated her mother to a facelift. The ‘California Gurls’ singer splashed out on a skin-tightening operation for her mother Mary Hudson, and her Christian pastor father Keith Hudson is so pleased with the results he has been bragging about how ‘amazing’ his spouse looks. According to The Sun newspaper, the reverend told his congregation at The Way Family Church in Temecula, California: “My daughter, little Katy Perry, bought my wife a facelift. Hallelujah! My Lord, does she look good. It is amazing what they can do. They took 25 years off her. I am serious – it’s amazing. “I don’t know how I am going to handle this. I mean, she doesn’t look like her mother no more, she looks like Katy Perry’s sister. It’s going to be difficult because they’re going to say, ‘Who’s this old man with Katy Perry and her sister?’ ‘ Katy treated her mother to the operation in the run up to her own wedding to British funnyman Russell Brand in September. Before they started dating, the comic was known for his womanising ways but Keith is hopeful he will convert to Christianity and calm down once and for all. He said: “That Russell Brand – he’s a prayer challenge. He is searching for God and that boy is going to get saved. If he’s going to hang around us, he’s going to fall in! He’s hungry for God.” Although they’re just weeks away from their nuptials, Russell and Katy can’t agree on where they will settle down when they become husband and wife. She said in an interview with UK station Capital FM Capital FM radio: ‘We won’t be moving to London anytime soon. I’m sure that Russell wants to keep his roots, he’s English and likes being that dapper man so he’s going to want to keep something here. But right now I’m clinging to California. ‘It’s because I’m a serotonin girl. That’s why I live there. Like my serotonin level would fluctuate if the sun doesn’t come out, my personality doesn’t come out.’
Katy Perry Denies Lady Gaga Twitter Diss. Katy Perry wasn’t talking about Lady Gaga when she Tweeted about blasphemy. The “California Gurls” singer even claims that she is a “massive fan” of the “Poker Face” hitmaker.
The alleged Katy and Gaga feud started last week when Perry wrote on Twitter: “Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke.” The post was widely assumed to be about Gaga’s “Alejandro” music video, wherein she uses religious imagery liberally. But Katy, who, like Gaga, was raised as a Christian, claims that the post was not directed at Gaga and was “more of a non-specific, general thing. But everybody made it out to be a cat fight,” she told EW. “I think people love cat fights. It’s a turn on for people.” It doesn’t mean, though, that she’s fine with anyone with blasphemous behavior. Just the other day, boyfriend Russell Brand got a taste of her fury when he made fun of her faith. She continued to our source, “The other day he was yelling out the window. He said something a bit off color, kind of blasphemous about the Lord Jesus Christ, and I smacked him for it. It’s just kind of deeply rooted inside of me, and hard to get away from.”
Katy Perry has posted a topless photo of herself in her Twitter account. Fans might be frustrated as the shot is just an odd image in which Perry photoshopped her face onto fiance Russell Brand’s from a shirtless shot of the Brit that graces the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine. Katy made it in a bid to celebrate Russell’s 35th birthday and the launch of his new movie “Get Him to the Greek”, which both happened on June 4. Together with the quirky image, Katy wrote, “In honor of @rustyrockets birthday; film release! MY Rolling Stone Cover!” and then sends fans to the ‘Twitpic’.”
