Katy Perry reveals how she stays slim on the road!

Katy Perry has one of Hollywood’s hottest bodies! How does the singer stay in such great shape – even while on the road, touring?

“When I was on the road, I liked to have a light soup, a piece of grilled chicken and some quinoa with grilled asparagus for dinner,” the “Teenage Dream” singer, 27, tells PEOPLE. “I always need my daily vitamins and I loved fresh-pressed juices and coconut water. I also love snacks, but pick healthier options like veggies and hummus, tangerines or Popchips.”

Speaking of Popchips, Perry has just been named the spokesperson for the healthy snack, shortly after she Tweeted about the product and was approached by the brand.

“They taste great and don’t make me feel guilty about them afterwards,” she says, adding that BBQ is her favorite flavor.

“Eating healthy is so important because I can’t afford to get sick,” Perry says. “When I was on the road, it was very important to eat a balanced meal and to make sure my energy was up for every two-hour show.”

Aside from eating right, the pop star says she feels the best about her body when she gets into “a routine of waking up early, starting my day with a workout, meditating and getting fresh air.”

As for those workouts, Perry doesn’t hit the gym.

“I love being outdoors,” she says. “I prefer to go on hikes or ride my bike.”

I love Popchips (except the jalapeno ones – those are nasty!), BBQ is my favorite.

Summer Makeup Q&A with Jose Parron

During the summer months, heat, sweat and humidity can wear you down, but it can also leave you looking like a melty mess.  Makeup Artist Jose Parron answers all your questions and provides helpful pointers to keep you looking fresh during the hot summer months!

Q: Is it safe to wear makeup at the beach?

A: As long as your makeup has a sufficient SPF for the time you are spending at the beach or pool, it is safe to wear makeup in the sun.  For extended stays, you might want to consider a higher SPF under your foundation.

 Q: How can I assure that my makeup stays on during humid weather?

A: Using a foundation like Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Foundation SPF 20, will ensure that you have a lightweight texture product that can perform in any extreme situation—not just when it’s humid, but even while perspiring.

Q: I have a birth mark on my leg, what is the best way to cover this on the beach? 

A: Marks on the body are a concern for many, particularly at the beginning of the summer when people feel pale and blotchy.  A quick application of Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15,can help conceal your birthmark, while covering other problem areas, such as bruises and veins.  Simply match the Leg and Body Cover to your skin tone and then apply it to already moisturized skin in short up and down strokes, let dry for five minutes and set with Dermablend Setting Powder.

 Q: How can I maintain a sun-kissed look without exposing myself to the sun? 

A:  Many of my clients like the look of a healthy glow, but fear the risk of exposing skin to the sun’s harmful rays. Using a sheer application of Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15, in a shade darker than your own skin tone, will give the illusion of sun-kissed legs, while helping to evenly cover imperfections.  Then apply Dermablend Setting Powder, let it set for a few minutes,and you can dance or workout without the fear of it coming off or staining your favorite shorts or sundress.

 Q: I have a formal event this summer and would like to conceal a visible tattoo. What is the easiest way to ensure my tattoo is covered?

 A: Dermablend has an easy fix to cover tattoos without taking drastic measures. Apply Dermablend Tattoo Primer directly on tattoo to help enhance wearability and texture. Next, cover your tattoo with Dermablend Leg and Body Cover SPF 15 and lastly, set with Dermablend Setting Powder. The three-step system allows for 16 hours of smudge-resistant, long-lasting wearability.

How Jordin Sparks lost 50 pounds!

Jordin Sparks landed the August cover of Shape Magazine. The singer posed in a bikini, showing off her recent 50-pound weight loss! So how did Jordin lose the weight?

“There is no secret,” the 22-year-old Sparkle actress told Us at the event. “It’s just eating better and working out! It’s definitely a daily thing.”

Among her favorite ways to get her sweat on: high-energy dance classes like Zumba. “My mom’s best friend is a Zumba instructor and I loved it,” she gushed. “I started with walking then went to jogging and then Zumba. I started [working with a trainer] and we did 30 minutes of circuit training so I didn’t feel like I needed to be in the gym for two hours.”

In addition to intense cardio sculpting sessions, Sparks, who had been dating fellow singer Jason Derulo since last August, had to makeover her diet as well. “I stop now when I’m full,” she admitted. “I love food and I love to eat. My thing was, do I really need seconds or do I want it just because it tastes good?”

But leftovers and second helpings have proven to pay off for the season 6 American Idol champ, who admits that she got extremely emotional when shooting her first bikini cover.

“I could only dream having a cover and looking like that,” she said. “I thought, ‘I did it!’ I had to walk back to my dressing room and I had to pull myself together because I was overwhelmed. I cried. I shed a little tear but I’m really happy with how it turned out.”

She looks amazing, but honestly…….she doesn’t look much different to me. I know she was a bit pudgy, but did she really have 50 pounds to lose? Either way, good for her. She looks beautiful on this cover!

Evan Rachel Wood tweets video of herself getting her nose pierced!

“I may or may not have just gotten my nose pierced again… And i may or may not have video….you see where this is going?” That’s what the ‘True Blood’ actress said before posting the video.

She followed it up with a link to the video, a thank you to “Victor” at “House of Ink” for doing the job and a disclaimer: “I must warn you, do not watch that last video if you are squeamish.”

Is it just me, or does she really seem to like (you get my drift?) getting her nose pierced?
