Katy Perry teases ‘The One That Got Away’ video with actor Diego Luna: watch here

Don’t let love get away!

Katy Perry offered a sneak preview of her video for her new ode to old love, “The One That Got Away,” today, tweeting, “The early bird gets the teaser: http://goo.gl/hMleR #1thatgotaway

In the clip, a voiceover intones, “The past is like a handful of dust; it filters through your fingers, disappearing little by little…I wish for one day I could go back. In another life I would do things differently.”

Watch the road-not-taken teaser below: READ FULL STORY

AMAs announce more performers, including Justin Bieber and Kelly Clarkson. Who are you most excited for?

The list of AMA performers keeps growing. The American Music Awards announced today that Christina Aguilera, Justin Bieber, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson and Maroon 5 will be performing at this year’s ceremony, airing November 20th on ABC.

It’s no secret that on one watches for the actual awards — fan-voting means predictable, Bieber-fevered results. But the AMAs do attract top-tier performers, and this year is no exception. I can’t wait to see the inevitable Christina  Aguilera/Maroon 5 “Moves like Jagger” duet. I just hope FoxNews doesn’t show a clip of the performance…right, Adam?

It’s also a safe bet that viewers will be treated to a Justin Bieber Christmas song (fingers crossed for a Mariah Carey surprise guest appearance!) as well as previously-announced Katy Perry performing her new single.

I’m sure Perry is hoping a live performance will give her the edge over other Artist of the Year noms Adele, Lady Gaga, and Taylor Swift (and Lil’ Wayne, but let’s get real. He doesn’t stand a chance.) On second thought, great performance or not, Perry won’t upset. Lady Gaga’s little Monsters are going to be voting until their fingers break off. READ FULL STORY

Katy Perry sings ballad version of 'The One That Got Away' on 'X Factor': Your opinion is desired

Let’s debate: Katy Perry performed a slowed-down version of her new single “The One That Got Away” on the U.K X Factor last night… and sounded surprisingly good.

Rocking a new pink hairdo and wielding a guitar, the emotional, stripped-down performance was a success for Perry, who is obviously more known for her radio hits than her live-performance chops.

But give the lady some credit:  she sounds better here than she does on the recorded version of the tune. I could have done without the back-up wails, but otherwise, she should definitely add this version into her rotation.

Katy Perry announces new perfume, Meow; does its name pass the smell test with other celebrity fragrances? Take our poll

Here, kitty kitty: Just in time for the holidays, Katy Perry announced today that her second fragrance will be called Meow, the sister scent to her debut perfume Purr. And yes, Purr did come in a feline-shaped bottle.

With her fairly literal sexy-cat ad campaign for Purr, I’m nervous excited moderately intrigued to see what Perry has in store for us with Meow.

The pop star has been trying to get fans to guess the new perfume name on Twitter this past week, and with picks ranging from ‘catnip’ to ‘furrytail’ and ‘catberry’, it wasn’t too much of a surprise when she announced the big news by tweeting, “My next fragrance & bestie to Purr is MEOW! She’s very sweet & inspired by that magical place, CANDYFORNIA!” READ FULL STORY

Hear, hear, TV fans. The Jukebox is back for another week with a selection of the most inventive, emotional, and surprising songs to hit TV screens this week.

Elsewhere, things got naughty on The Good Wife, civil disobedience gave Lionel Richie renewed relevance on Community, and a new show established its place in the moody CW wheelhouse. Check out our picks below! (Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD!) READ FULL STORY

Katy Perry announces new single, 'The One That Got Away' -- would it be your pick, too?

It’s a California gurl’s prerogative, when she’s racked up a Michael-Jackson-matching five number-ones in one album, to pick any damn song she wants when it comes to single number six.

And indeed, the (actually twentysomething) Teenage Dreamer announced today that “The One That Got Away” will be the next album track to go for the six-times gold, with its official radio bow slated for October.

The song, a midtempo ode to a summer-after-high-school love with whom she recalls sharing Mustang makeout sessions to Radiohead and getting “matching tattoos” (like these?), may not seem like the most immediate choice.

After all, Perry did perform the pretty ballad “Not Like the Movies” way back at this year’s Grammys without releasing it as a single, and the naughty show-me-yours-maybe-I’ll-show-you-mine stomper “Peacock” managed to hit the no. 1 spot on Billboard’s U.S. Hot Dance Club Songs without ever being officially pushed by her label.

Plus, there’s always the guitar-heavy ex-boyfriend burn “Circle the Drain” (not a personal favorite, but I know it has its fans), as well as “Pearl,” “Who Am I Living For,” and “Hummingbird Heart.”

Readers, listen to “The One That Got Away” after the jump and tell us if it would be your own first (or fourth) choice for Katy’s sixth single — or if you’d rather have her quit while she’s five massive hits ahead: READ FULL STORY

MTV 2011 VMAs: What you didn't see on TV

The 2011 MTV Video Music Awards are in the books, and while the show as a whole felt a little scattered and unfocused, there were indeed some high points. Russell Brand, Tony Bennett, and Bruno Mars gave Amy Winehouse an excellent tribute, Beyoncé capped off a great performance with a nice little revelation about the future of her family, and Adele tore down the house with her stunning, jaw-dropping run through “Someone Like You.”

But there were a handful of amazing moments that happened between MTV’s rapid-fire camera cuts and commercial breaks. Luckily, I was inside the Nokia Theater at L.A. Live and can report the eight greatest things you probably missed during the show. READ FULL STORY

MTV 2011 VMAs: Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Adele big winners

Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Adele all won multiple Moon Men at the MTV 2011 Video Music Awards. Perry’s “Firework” won for Video of the Year, and she also took home a trophy with Kanye West for Best Collaboration for their sci-fi fantasia “E.T.” Perry harkened back to a previous VMAs show in her acceptance speech when she told her co-winner, “Now this is the time when you want to interrupt me, Kanye!” Lady Gaga — who spent the entire night dressed as her male alter ego, Jo Calderone — won Best Female and Best Video with a Message. Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” meanwhile, took home multiple behind-the-scenes awards for editing, art direction, and cinematography.

Other winners included Britney Spears (who also took home the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award), Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, Foo Fighters, and Tyler, The Creator. Check out a full list below:

Missy Elliott remixes Katy Perry's 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)': Listen here

Yes, we know that Katy Perry really wants to beat Michael Jackson’s record for the most No. 1 hits from the same album, and now she might be getting the boost she needs from Missy Elliott, who just remixed Perry’s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.).”

This is especially exciting for supadupafans who’ve been following Elliott, since the rapper has been largely M.I.A. for the past few years.

She released a greatest hits collection in 2006 and has been working on a new album Respect M.E., but her last proper full-length was 2005′s The Cookbook.

In June, Elliott revealed that a long battle with Graves disease, an incurable disorder that affects the thyroid, had kept her out of the studio. “I couldn’t write because my nervous system was so bad,” she told Vibe. “I couldn’t even use a pen.”

But, wow, does she use that pen on the remix, which finds her working a stripper pole, getting so tipsy she loses her clothes, and waking up the next day to a “hella good morn!” from the guy in her bed. Listen to the full glory of her weekend after the jump:

Friday, round two: Katy Perry and Rebecca Black re-team onstage

Katy Perry and underage crooners: The lovefest continues.

Perry had some onstage “fun fun fun fun” with teen sensation Rebecca Black this weekend in Los Angeles. The “infamous” Black (Perry’s words, not ours!) made a surprise appearance alongside the “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” songstress for a rousing rendition of Black’s meme-tastic hit “Friday” on Aug. 5 — a Friday, conveniently. After the song, Perry gave Black a hug and a big-sisterly pat on the head, and the two proclaimed their mutual affection for one another.

After Black’s exit — to the delight of her fans — Perry shouted, “Dammit! I love the Internet.”

Teenage dream team? We’ll take it. Watch the video below: READ FULL STORY
