Earlier this week, Katy Perry released a preview video for the music video in which she dressed up as a variety of party entertainers, ranging from an Instagramming, gum-snapping princess to a drinky clown to a possibly kind of offensive Jewish comedian.

According to the video’s intro, Perry actually attended five different birthday parties as these characters without revealing her identity. Watch the Many Party Faces of Perry, below:

Katy Perry plays dress-up in music video preview, maybe makes awkward anti-Semitic gesture -- VIDEO

Katy Perry really wants our attention, and she’ll do whatever she can to get it. Even if that means making a video that might be a tiny bit racist.

In a preview for Perry’s upcoming “Birthday” music video, the singer put out a clip in which she poses as various birthday party performers — a dancer, a princess, a clown. Spoiler: It’s weird. Super weird:

Katy Perry performs tracks off 'Prism,' answers fan questions at iHeartRadio album release party

Katy Perry celebrated the release of her newest album, Prism, last night by throwing a party at the new iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles — and unleashing live performances of “Dark Horse,” “By The Grace Of God,” “This Moment,” “Unconditionally,” and of course, “Roar” for a room of very happy Katycats.

Things we learned during the Q&A, hosted by Mario Lopez: The most famous person in Perry’s phone is Miley Cyrus. (“I think she’s the most famous person in the world right now!”) Her favorite song to belt out in the car is Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” The strangest thing she’s ever been asked to autograph? a scan of someone’s brain.

And the weirdest thing in her purse: She once carried around locks of hair belonging to Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift in an otherwise empty bag.Turns out Perry, who shared a dressing room with both singers the first time she attended the Grammy Awards, asked Cyrus and Swift for snips to commemorate the occasion.

“I put bows in it and popped them both into my purse and carried those around for a while.” said Perry before adding almost as an afterthought that now everyone knows she’s “a freak.” READ FULL STORY

Katy Perry vs. Lady Gaga: Who won the singles showdown?

Katy-Perry-Lady-Gaga.jpg

Turns out Katy Perry was right: She is a champion, as she sings on the chorus of “Roar,” and she’s on track to move 525,000 downloads of her latest mega-single, compared with 200,000 to 225,000 sales expected for Lady Gaga’s “Applause,” Billboard reports.

Gaga and Perry weren’t planning to go head-to-head like this, but when both their new singles leaked online last weekend, everyone wondered: Which diva would come out on top? While Billboard‘s initial projections had the singers neck-and-neck — even suggesting both could surpass a half-million sales in what would have been a chart record — Gaga’s sales stalled around 200K, while Perry’s prospects soared.

Katy Perry is back with a 'Roar' -- hear her new single now

In a promo for her new single “Roar,” Katy Perry tongue-in-cheekily lays to rest her old bubblegum image, as starlight-mint pinwheels spin on a casket and purple-wigged fans wail. But fans shouldn’t worry about Perry straying too far from the formula that made her famous: “Roar” has arrived, and it’s just as upliftingly poppy as her previous megahit “Firework.”

The song’s clear jock-jam aspirations — sample lyrics: “I got the eye of the tiger, the fire/Dancing through the fire, ’cause I am a champion/And you’re gonna hear me roar” — will likely make the song a fall-football staple (the Bengals should just send her a check now).

Katy Perry's latest 'Roar' teaser lays her old image to rest -- WATCH

In an epic new teaser—at 24 seconds, it’s four times the length of a Vine—for her album, Prism (out Oct. 22), Katy Perry attends the burial of her old spinning-popsicles image. Just a few days ago, of course, she released a video of herself burning a blue wig. What’s next? Will she put a sweater on over a cleavage-baring dress?

All we know is that Katy’s not revealing anything about her album, or “Roar,” the hashtag and apparent song title flashed in each video. She’s only telling us what Prism will not be—another Teenage Dream. (Hopefully it won’t be Adult Reality either.)

This much is clear: Lady Gaga’s septum-piercing video is looking pretty lame right now. (To say nothing of her non-metaphor about applause.)
