Rihanna & Katy Perry Party In NYC: Back To Being BFFs?

Rihanna and Katy Perry were once pop music’s favorite BFFs but outside factors (*cough* Chris Brown *cough*) caused a rift their friendship. Until now! On April 25 the ladies were spotted together once again doing some serious partying in NYC. Could their issues finally be resolved?


It looks like friendship has withstood the test of time between Katy Perry, 29, and 26-year-old Rihanna. The pair had reportedly gone their separate ways after a few disagreements and disses, but the singers are back at it! The two pop stars appeared to be celebrating their reunion at a mutual friend’s birthday party at NYC’s 1Oak nightclub on April 25. Could their feud be over?

The pop singers met up to party at NYC’s 1Oak night club with other celebs including fashion designer, Jeffery Campbell, and Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire. Onlookers watched the two dance the night away while Katy puffed on a cigarette and Rihanna puffed on… something else.Drake & Rihanna Sexy PDA During Clippers Game

This is the second time Katy and Rihanna hung out publicly since their feud began — the first was backstage at a Grimes concert back in January. So yes indeed, it looks like the girls are back at it for good!

Rihanna and Katy were always both really open about their friendship together before the two drifted apart. RiRi has referred to Katy as her best friend in song lyrics and even threw her a bachelorette party prior to her short lived marriage to Russel Brand. Things began to noticeably change for the friends when Katy requested to be seated far away from Rihanna at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

The source also said that Katy distanced herself from Rihanna after news that she was back with former boyfriend, Chris Brown. Katy criticized Rihanna for going back to the man who assaulted her, and Rihanna did not take kindly to the advice. But now that Breezy is totally in RiRi’s past, it seems that her and Katy have no problem being close buddies again.

Kim & Khloe Kardashian Wish Kris & Bruce Jenner A Happy Anniversary Even Though The Two Are Separated!

Aren't marital anniversaries reserved for those couples who are not separated??



Apparently Kim and Khloe Kardashian don't think so!



Kris and Bruce Jenner celebrated 23 years of marriage on Monday and the Kardashian momager took a moment to publicly wish her better half a happy anniversary while her daughters followed suit!


KoKo posted to her Instagram profile:

And Kimmy shared a captionless picture on the photo sharing site:


 Well, it just looks like they're one big, happy family!



Whatever works for them, right?!



Some people glam it up for a trip to LAX, knowing paparazzi will be there ready to snap their photo.



Britney Spears is not one of those people.



It's her prerogative.



Taylor Swift is safe from a stalker who allegedly threatened to "kill any man" who came between him and the singer -- a judge just ordered him to stay 100 yards away from her for the next 3 years.



TMZ broke the story ... Swift obtained a temporary restraining order earlier this month against Timothy Sweet, who allegedly believes he's married to the singer. Swift claims Sweet vowed to murder anyone who came between them, including Secretary of State John Kerry.



The temporary restraining order was extended Tuesday to 3 years. Sweet is also forbidden from going near Taylor's parents.



Swift claims Sweet has harassed her since January 2011 ... bombarding her with emails, letters, and social media posts professing his love for her.



You might say ... she knew he was trouble.

LADY GAGA John Lennon Look-Alike Cut from 'G.U.Y' Video


There are dozens of things that don't make sense in Lady Gaga's "G.U.Y." music video ... it has been solved ... The Mystery of the Empty Coffin.


In the video, which has over 13 million views on YouTube already, there's a part where Gaga resurrects Michael Jackson, Gandhi and Jesus from the dead ... and they emerge from smoke-filled coffins. But if you watched closely, you would have noticed 4 coffins ... but only 3 resurrections. 


We have learned the fourth dead celeb was supposed to be John Lennon. We spoke with Alexander Karavay, who was cast for the part after submitting the photo below.  He shot his scenes, but was cut from the final version.



Karavay says he's bummed he got the ax -- he'd told his family and friends he was in the video -- but he understands Gaga is an artist and perhaps it was her vision to cut him out.


We're all at the mercy of Gaga.




Talk about a slap in the face -- after earning $8 MILLION from her infamous Pepsi deal back in 2001, Britney Spears went turncoat by investing in Coca-Cola!

We've obtained new docs in Britney's conservatorship case, which detail her investment portfolio, including her overall gains and losses for the year 2012 -- the most intriguing part is what she dumped into Pepsi's arch enemy.

Britney sold 574 shares of Coke for a modest profit of $3,238.55. She held on to 208 shares. As for Pepsi ... it's nowhere to be found in her portfolio.

Brit sold a few other random stocks for a profit -- including AT&T and Deere & Co. -- but it wasn't all gravy: she lost $640.13 on McDonald's and $1,277.38 on Chipotle.  She eats at both places enough that you'd think the stock would be worth more.

Overall, Brit netted $97,883 last year in stock earnings ... not bad, but for her it's chump change (she'll earn more than triple that PER SHOW in Vegas).


As for her other holdings: Chevron, Microsoft, Phillip Morris, Heinz, Nestle, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Lululemon, and Visa. Nothing too risky.  In all, Brit has just shy of $13 mil of her conservatorship money in the market.

As for blowing off Pepsi, we don't dispense investment advice -- BUT PepsiCo has shown pretty consistent growth since the 80s ... so we gotta ask ...

Katy Perry Isn't Just a Gorgeous Face and Hot Body -- She's Funny, Too

Katy Perry is adorable, guys, just in case you didn't know. She might not make the most brilliant music in all of music in the entire world, but most of it's catchy, and while she's not out there penning ballads like "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" or mixing sounds like a modern day Ludwig van Beethoven or something, she does what she does well, and the only thing that adds more to her likability is her humor and her down-to-earth attitude. 


Take her most recent interview for example -- she talks about her health regimen and how it tastes like ... well, here -- let Katy herself tell you: 


"[My preferred brand of Vitamin C tastes like] a load and is disgusting ... I can’t believe I just said that! Strike the ‘load’ part!”


Hilarity, right? All the LOLs, Katy, jeez.


Here's what she says about astrology and meditation and being enlightened and all that:


“I’m 28, and… when you’re at the end of your 20s, it’s a very important growing time. It’s called the Saturn return, if you like astrology — I know it’s important for me. I think that it’s a very important time, when you kind of let go of childish things and accept the wisdom that comes with age. That’s exactly where I am now. ... I’ve always been a sponge; I’ve always had a desire to learn. I didn’t grow up with a real education, but now I am kind of educated by life. ... I learned this thing called Transcendental Meditation, which I do as much as I possibly can. It’s 20 minutes and you’re supposed to do it twice a day, but I only do it once every other day." 


On the good luck charm that travels with her -- a little piece of home: 


“I bring my teddy bear with me everywhere. It’s such a cuddly little thing when you’re alone in your bed at night. I wish I could bring my cat, but she doesn’t like to travel very much.”


And finally, on her rih-lationship with Rihanna

"I think that Rihanna always looks so fresh and I’m like, ‘How do you do that? We all know how much pot you smoke! And you don’t sleep because you’re on Instagram at four o’clock in the morning!’”

Ah, guys -- what a gem, right?

BREAKING NEWS: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Are Over for REAL, Yay!

With two separate statements about it being "off," Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus' reps both confirmed that the couple is no longer engaged, dating, seeing each other or probably even living together. ... And we all heaved a collective sigh of relief that Miley won't be doing any half-naked writhing with any foam fingers or any "little" people whilst engaged to one of the most handsome young men in Hollywood, and Liam won't be forced to put up with Miley's tongue wagging to and fro all the time. 


While it's not hard to speculate why -- because generally speaking, they're apparently going in very, very different directions in both their personal and professional lives -- it's amazing that they waited as long as they did to announce an official statement. It's like, nobody's surprised, friends. 


Moving onward and upward, right guys? You've got to many more stages upon which to grind, Miles, and Liam? "Hunger Games." Classy ladies in ballrooms or something. That's all.


Love It or Leave It: Anna Kendrick Can Make Anything Look Good

Here she is, friends, the loveliest girl in the world: it's Anna Kendrick! She's over in London right now, and here's a little ensemble she wore to the Vivienne Westwood show at Fashion Week. It's a little "futuristic schoolmarm," isn't it? If you put this outfit on basically any other lady in the world, it would look mildly ridiculous -- imagine this on Kim Kardashian or Gwyneth Paltrow, for instance, and thank me later for the LOL -- but Anna pulls it off. How? By simply being awesome.


Verdict: Love it, as long is it never touches any other body. The results would be too terrible to fathom. 




Kanye West is getting prosecuted for screwing with a photographer's equipment at LAX, but Lamar Odom basically did the same thing and he's not facing criminal charges ... and we know why.


Law enforcement sources tells us ... honchos in the L.A. City Attorney's Office cut Lamar a break because this is the first time he ever went on the attack against a paparazzo.  You'll recall Lamar went into a photog's car and chucked his camera equipment into the street, damaging it.  Lamar has been ordered to attend an informal hearing but will NOT face criminal charges.

Our sources say the reason they're going after Kanye is his history of attacking photographers.  Specifically, the City Attorney has zeroed in on another incident at LAX back in 2008, when he grabbed a photog's camera and threw it to the ground.  The case was filed, but later dismissed after Kanye paid for the repair.
