Check out Katy Perry’s pink-haired InStyle cover!

Katy Perry is InStyle’s October 2011 cover girl! The pink-haired singer opens up to the magazine about her feisty side!

“I’m not going to sit and be steamrolled,” she says. “I am full of unicorns and Care Bears 99 percent of the time, but don’t open Pandora’s Box of that other 1 percent — because it’s there!” She also divulges on details about her tour makeup process, “I ordered a special chair from the dentist so I can lie back and wake up looking like a million bucks — I call it my Sleeping Beauty makeup.”

Katy also chats about having kids (not yet, guys!) and clues fans in on her red carpet style: “I kind of use this inner dial: Either I turn it up or down.” No word on if she’s going to launch her own “Perry Pink” hair color line anytime soon.

Katy Perry’s personalized fingernails at last night’s VMA’s!

You may have noticed that Katy Perry wore custom Minx nails to the 2011 Video Music Awards last night as she accepted the Video of the Year award for her powerful single, “Firework.”   If you look closer at Katy’s Minx, however, you will notice that her nails had great significance.  Each nail shows a tiny personalized image of a record at the nail bed, symbolizing each of the five hit singles from her “Teenage Dream” album that propelled Katy into music history.

Los Angeles celebrity nail stylist Kimmie Kyees designed the custom Minx, using a black and white-checkered background to contrast with the blue and pink-labeled records that had “Katy” and “Perry” written on them in script.  Katy Perry is the only woman in the history of Billboard to have five songs from the same album at No. 1 on the Hot 100.  Michael Jackson is the only other artist to have achieved this.

Kimmie Kyees is the same nail stylist who applied the custom “Russell Brand” Minx to Katy Perry for her VMA appearance last year.  Minx nails is a solid nail coating that is available in salons and spas around the world.

NEW PIC: Katy Perry has pink hair!!!

Even stars like Katy Perry need their junk food fix. The “California Girls” singer was spotted today buying several bags of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos at a gas station in Los Angeles. Looks like she and Britney Spears share a similar love for the cheesy snack.

The pink-haired pop sensation really turned heads though with her outfit — a barely-there summer dress emblazoned with flower decals. The ensemble left little to the imagination, as she narrowly avoided a wardrobe malfunction when the wind blew.

After her Cheetos run, Katy tweeted:

“Kitty 2012 Purry, I think Flaming Hot Cheetos could be turned into a natural energy source #FlamingHotKatyCat.”


MUST SEE! Katy Perry lands the cover of Vanity Fair!

Vanity Fair sat down with singer Katy Perry for their June issue, and I think she looks amazing on the cover (even if it looks like she’s channeling Dita Von Teese, still hot).

On her religious upbringing:

“I come from a very non-accepting family, but I’m very accepting,” Perry says of her religious beliefs as an adult. “Russell is into Hinduism, and I’m not [really] involved in it. He meditates in the morning and the evening; I’m starting to do it more because it really centers me. [But] I just let him be him, and he lets me be me.” Perry says she didn’t stick with the mold growing up. “I have always been the kid who’s asked ‘Why?’ In my faith, you’re just supposed to have faith. But I was always like…why?” she says. “At this point, I’m just kind of a drifter. I’m open to possibility…. My sponge is so big and wide and I’m soaking everything up and my mind has been radically expanded. Just being around different cultures and people and their opinions and perspectives. Just looking into the sky.”

On her parents:

“I think sometimes when children grow up, their parents grow up,” Perry says of her evangelical-minister parents. “Mine grew up with me. We coexist. I don’t try to change them anymore, and I don’t think they try to change me. We agree to disagree. They’re excited about [my success]. They’re happy that things are going well for their three children and that they’re not on drugs. Or in prison.” Perry’s mother confirms that she is proud of her daughter’s success, telling Robinson, “The Lord told us when I was pregnant with her that she would do this.”

“I didn’t have a childhood,” she says, adding that her mother never read her any books except the Bible, and that she wasn’t allowed to say “deviled eggs” or “Dirt Devil.” Perry wasn’t even allowed to listen to secular music and relied on friends to sneak her CDs. “Growing up, seeing Planned Parenthood, it was considered like the abortion clinic,” she tells Robinson. “I was always scared I was going to get bombed when I was there…. I didn’t know it was more than that, that it was for women and their needs. I didn’t have insurance, so I went there and I learned about birth control.”

On her husband Russell Brand:

Perry says that there is “never a dull moment” and that Brand has “never lied to me once. I trust him; there’s just a level of trust that we’ve built up.” When asked about the infamous photo Brand tweeted of her without makeup in the middle of the night, Perry laughs it off. “We were just messing around,” she says, “I didn’t really care. I mean, when I go to rehearsals I look like that. I’m every woman. It takes a village to make me who I am…. You don’t have to wake up looking like, you know, Gisele.”

On being married in the public eye:

“The press is just not your friend when it comes to a marriage,” Perry explains of her need for privacy in her relationship with Brand. “That’s why we didn’t sell the pictures of our wedding, and we got offered millions of dollars for them, millions.” Why not take the money and give it to charity? Robinson asks. “Well, I can always do that later for something else; maybe if I have a child,” Perry says. “But I’ve seen too much of it with other people—it’s the wrong kind of attention. It detracts from the reason why you exist. We wanted that moment to ourselves.” After ultimately showing a clip of her wedding video at the Grammys, Perry tells Robinson she did it “because I felt the moment was right and not forced. Russell and I had time to savor our moment privately first and then share it with people when we were ready, and not for a paycheck. I loved the idea, because I thought it was beautiful and artistically accompanied the song I wrote for him. Plus, it was Valentine’s eve!”

On the gossip:

“I don’t care what people say about my relationship; I don’t care what they say about my boobs. People are buying my songs; I have a sold-out tour. I’m getting incredible feedback from my music.” But despite her immense fame, Perry never forgets what it took to get to where she is. “I don’t take anything for granted,” she says. “There are 500 other girls right behind me. And I know that, because I was one of them. I remember what it’s like to be someone who’s always trying to get there—sending out tons of e-mails … trying to connect with some person who could connect me with some other person. And I wouldn’t be working at this pace now if I didn’t truly know that fame is fleeting.”
