Via Los Angeles Times:

Pop singer Katy Perry and her husband, comedian and actor Russell Brand, are listing their Los Feliz home at $3,395,000.

The gated property includes a 1922 Mediterranean-style main house and a swimming pool. The stately 4,600-square-foot home, with a classic exterior that belies its white contemporary interiors, has four bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms.

Adding a touch of whimsy in the updated kitchen is Perry’s vintage pink refrigerator, which she brought from a previous residence. It is not included in the sale.

The pair added more trees and landscaping during the year and a half that they owned the house to increase privacy. A 25-foot-tall teepee that Brand bought for Perry stands in the yard.

Perry converted the three-car garage into a wardrobe styling room. “It’s 60 feet of costumes,” said Ernie Carswell of Teles Properties, Beverly Hills, who has the listing.

Public records show the couple bought the Los Feliz house in 2009 for $3.25 million.

Annie Leibovitz denies copying Von Teese for Katy Perry shoot
autor: | May 10th, 2011 | add comment | News ,Rumors

Celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz has moved quickly to deny allegations her recent Katy Perry shoot was inspired by burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese.

The famed snapper shot Perry wearing lingerie and posing with her hands on her hips for the June (11) cover of U.S. magazine Vanity Fair, sparking comparisons to a sultry advertising campaign Von Teese starred in for underwear firm Wonderbra in 2008.

Leibovitz has now denied borrowing ideas from Von Teese, telling the New York Post’s Page Six column, “I’d never seen the Wonderbra ad. Katy’s is a classic pose as old as the hills.”

Von Teese herself insists she is flattered by the alleged imitation, adding, “Katy and I are friends. She comes to a lot of my shows, but she (recently) came backstage and said, ‘I am taking all of this (gesturing at Von Teese’s hair and costume).’ People have always copied my style. I used to have friends who would dye their hair exactly the same shade as mine. I see it as a compliment.”

X Factor 2011: Katy Perry could be joining the judging panel, according to new betting odds

Katy Perry has emerged as the nation’s first choice to join The X Factor.

Following reports Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell are quitting The X Factor to focus on the Stateside-version, Katy Perry has been named as the front-runner to join the judging panel.

The Firework songstress – who appeared as a guest judge on the show last year – is 7/2 favourite, with Take That’s Gary Barlow in joint second place with Sharon Osbourne at 4/1.

Former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger is also in the running according to William Hill’s latest odds, sitting alongside Robbie Williams at 8/1.

Interestingly, the least likely person to take a seat on The X Factor is Eminem, who currently has odds of 66/1.

Joe Crilly, a spokesman for William Hill, said: “Katy Perry was very well liked when she appeared on last year’s show and the odds suggest that she is in pole position to either take over from a departing judge or become a fifth judge on the show.

Rounding out the top 5 choices were Monica Bellucci, with 18 percent, Angelina Jolie, with 12 percent, and recent Bond beauty Gemma Arterton, who also sashayed away with 12 percent of the vote.

Numerous women have expressed interest in the role, including singer and Cadillac Ranch actress Beyonce Knowles.

Katy Perry and OPI Collaborate on a New Nail Polish Collection
autor: | October 17th, 2010 | add comment | News ,Rumors

OPI is teaming up with chart topping megastar Katy Perry to release a new line of polishes inspired by her innovative style.

Honestly, this is such a no-brainer collaboration I’m surprised they hadn’t teamed up sooner. A professed nail fanatic, Perry always uses the red carpet to show off her daring nail designs (customized Russell Brand manicure, anyone?) and regularly posts pictures of her amazing nail art on Twitter.
The Katy Perry Collection by OPI will include four glamorous shades: Teenage Dream (a dreamy pink glitter), Not Like the Movies (a sultry silver), Last Friday Night (a fierce glittery blue), and The One That Got Away (an amazing deep berry). But the breakout hit of the collection is sure to be Black Shatter, a revolutionary topcoat that creates a cracked/leopard pattern when applied over dried nail lacquer.

I’ve wasted countless hours trying to recreate the leopard mani at home, so I will definitely be the first in line when the collection finally hits store shelves.

The Katy Perry Collection by OPI will be available starting January 2011, at ULTA stores (www.ulta.com), for $9.

Russell Brand and Katy Perry have snapped up their first lovenest together in New York, splashing out a reported $2.7million (£1.7m) on the two-bedroom, two-bathroom crash pad.

However, the couple will have to do without the services of a porter at the 140sq m (1,500sq ft) penthouse property in the TriBeca area – it does have a roof terrace, though.

The couple, who are expected to tie the knot in the next few weeks, will live full-time in Los Angeles.

According to reports, the couple’s Big Apple bedroom is on the mezzanine level of the pad, overlooking the living room.
