Katy Perry using all her assets to promote Purr in Mexico City.


On Saturday, February 5, 2011 singer-songwriter and 2011 Grammy nominee, Katy Perry, teamed with Gigantic Parfums to launch Purr by Katy Perry in Mexico City. The day began with a press conference at hotel Distrito Capital, in Santa Fe, Mexico City, where invited media learned about Katy’s inspiration and involvement with her new fragrance. Following the press conference, Katy greeted over ten thousand fans at the Liverpool Department Store in the Perisur Mall, south of Mexico City. Katy signed autographs for her fans and introduced Mexico City to her new fragrance, Purr by Katy Perry. Later that night Katy Perry arrived on the ‘Purrple’ carpet at the launch party which included many Mexican celebrities and socialites. Katy is “absolutely thrilled to finally introduce me in a bottle. There is a wonderful world of fragrances out there, but like with my music, I believe there is room for me and my own unique twist on it. Purr is a natural extension of who I am as a woman – it’s a gorgeous blend of all my favorite scents that embodies my style, my tastes and my love for all things incredibly cute. It is an absolutely purrfect perfume that I hope leaves you meowing with delight!”

Katy Perry is the latest celebrity to be seen sporting the ‘Stiletto Nail’ trend! She tweeted the picture above, along with: “Nails for the day… This took 4ever to type.”

The long, tapered and sharpened nails are becoming increasingly popular amongst celebs, with fans like Rihanna, Fergie and now Katy Perry!

“It’s a very dramatic,” Irene Nahon, owner of the FiFi Nail Salon in midtown Manhattan told the News. “It’s definitely a hot look. Not for the conservative or for the office.”

Not all nail salons in the city will know exactly what a “stiletto nail’ is yet but most can help you choose the length of your tip and file it down to the exact amount of pointiness you desire.

You can choose your polish or add jewels and pick any kind of wrap you like. Once the nail is set with UV gel and wrapped, your talons are permanent.

Total cost: Around $120. The most popular color? Black.

One reason women seem to like the stiletto nail is that it elongates the fingers and hand, Jamie Ahn, owner of Acqua Beauty Bar and Townhouse Spa in Manhattan told the News.

A downside? Injury.

“People have to be careful,” says Ahn. “You can really poke yourself in the eye. I’ve seen it a lot more times than you would think.”

“Men don’t seem to like the look much either,” she added.

What do you think – do you like them? I’m not a fan, personally.


Katy Perry opens up about her new diet

Katy Perry is preparing for her ‘California Dreams’ tour, which starts February 20 in Portugal and has 95 show dates through November. In a new interview with Rolling Stone she talks about how she’s getting in top shape.

“After this interview I’m going to have a nice healthy breakfast,” she told the magazine. “I’m on a meal plan, which absolutely sucks – but on Sundays I get to have a cheat day where I go buck wild and eat In-N-Out Burger. Then I’ll work out, go to a vocal lesson, run through the entire set at rehearsals, go to dance rehearsal until 10:00 p.m. and then go home and sort through e-mails concerning the production. I feel like I’m training for the Olympics!”

She also told the magazine about her new show, which “smell like you’re in cotton candy heaven” and require 15 outfit changes.

“I have this whole thing in my show that is about candy and cupcakes and meat,” she told the magazine. “It’s both really sweet and shocking, but not in a sexual way.”
