Katy Perry signs with Coty, Inc., to launch a line of fragrances!

Coty Inc. announced today the signing of multifaceted singer, songwriter and entertainer Katy Perry to develop and market her own line of signature fragrances. As part of the project, Coty will also distribute the artist’s successful existing fragrance portfolio, comprised of Purr and Meow!, effective immediately.

Perry joins Coty’s impressive list of brands that include Calvin Klein, Chloé, Marc Jacobs and Playboy, among many others.

Eight-time Grammy nominee Katy Perry is one of the best-selling recording artists of this era. Her monumental album Teenage Dream, which has sold more than 5 million copies and 50 million single downloads to date, has remained in the Top 40 album charts since its release two years ago. Perry is a global superstar, touring the world with sold out arenas, including 124 live shows in her 2011 California Dreams tour. The tour is documented in this summer’s hit 3D feature “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” which is already the fourth biggest music documentary of all time.

“We are thrilled to have an artist as creative and talented as Katy Perry join us at Coty,” said Renato Semerari, president, Coty Beauty. “Katy is original and daring—her unique approach to music and life will serve as the inspiration behind her innovative new scents and allow us to explore new avenues of scent creation.”

“I am honored to be working with Coty, which has produced some of my favorite fragrances,” said Perry. “I’m excited to share what’s next in my perfumed world as well as making Purr and Meow! more accessible worldwide!”

Brad Pitt’s new Chanel No. 5 commercial sexy – or not so much?

When I heard that Brad Pitt was going to be the face of Chanel No. 5, my first thought was this is GENIUS! Brad Pitt is sexy, no doubt. But could the 48-year-old actor compete with the likes of Nicole Kidman and Marilyn Monroe as the face of the classic women’s fragrance?

Now that I’ve seen the commercial, I’m not sure anymore.

Chanel is touting the Pitt campaign as “the perspective of a man on the most feminine fragrance of all time.” The company previously released a few teaser videos of the actor posing odd questions to the viewer, including “Do you feel lucky?” and “Are you going somewhere?” Ugh, whatever, Brad.

In the commercial just released, Pitt, who reportedly nabbed $7 million for the gig, looks more like he wandered out of a dive bar in Brooklyn than the chiseled stud we saw years ago. “The world turns and we turn with it,” he muses in black and white, “but wherever I go; there you are.”

If you think it’s all a little cheesy, well, you’re in good company. “TRY NOT TO LAUGH WHEN YOU WATCH THIS!” howls one commenter on the YouTube version. “Bad hair, bad style, wtf?? do i see a goatee??? Horrible taste… and btw, why use an [American] to sell a French product?” writes another.

But LOL-worthy lines aside, Brad’s good looks are still working their magic on at least one charmed lady. Writes one commenter:

“The things he says makes no sense whatsoever. But his eyes. OMG.”

I’m not a fan of the commercial, but did I watch it twice? Yes. :) I think part of the reason this commercial bugged me – is I reeeeeeeeeeeeally don’t like his hair long. He looks so much better clean cut. I’m not a fan of his hair like this.
