Katy Perry stops by the Ellen Degeneres show!

Katy Perry on her film “Part of Me”

Ellen: Like you said, you shot the good, the bad. Who knows what’s going to happen in your life when you start shooting things? You got married during that time.

Katy: I did.

Ellen: And then that didn’t turn out to last and that part of it is still in there?

Katy: I thought it was important for me..First of all, I thought it was important to show everything in between. I think sometimes people think that we’re perfect and we know we’re not perfect, at all. I think it’s important start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dream you always have to be perfect or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world. So that’s why I decided to put everything into the film. In the most tasteful way. But mostly it’s about how I go there and the ride along the way which can be bumpy but mostly it was extremely fun…

I actually really want to see her movie. From what I’ve seen so far it looks like it will be really interesting!

WATCH: Katy Perry performs new divorce anthem at the Billboard Music Awards!

Katy Perry
not only picked up the Spotlight Award for matching Michael Jackson’s record of five No. 1 hits on a single album, but she also debuted her new song “Wide Awake” live on the Billboard stage.

The song was written for her upcoming 3D movie, “Katy Perry: Part of Me”. “I’m wide awake. I was in the dark, I was falling hard with an open heart. How did I read the stars so wrong. I was dreaming for so long. I wish I knew then what I know now. I wouldn’t dive in, I wouldn’t bow down,” she sings about her divorce from comedian Russell Brand.

“Not losing any sleep, I picked up every piece and landed on my feet. Need nothing to complete myself. I am born again, outta the lion’s den. I don’t have to pretend. The story’s over now, the end.”

Take a listen!

Here’s a clip from the show!

Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and more at the Billboard Music Awards!

Katy Perry won a major award last night at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, NV. She picked up the Spotlight Award for matching Michael Jackson’s record five No. 1 singles off one album.

Teenage Dream spun off the No. 1 Hot 100 hits “California Gurls” (featuring Snoop Dogg), “Teenage Dream,” “E.T.” (featuring Kanye West), “Firework” and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.).” The singer nabbed yet another No. 1 this year, with “Part of Me,” the first single off the special edition album Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.

Perry also performed her new single, ‘Wide Awake’ on the BBMA stage. The song was written for her upcoming 3D film, Katy Perry: Part of Me.

Taylor Swift won Billboard’s Woman of the Year, and was presented with her award by Zooey Deschanel.

Billboard also honored the late Whitney Houston, with a tribute performed by John Legend and Jordin Sparks. Jordin starred alongside Whitney in the singer’s last film, “Sparkle”. Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, accepted the Billboard Millennium Award on her mother’s behalf.

“I just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all,” she said. “Not just when it was good, but when it was bad too … Thank you so much for showing that much love, because she deserved it.”

There was another tribute last night, and that was performed by Natasha Bedingfield. The singer paid tribute to Donna Summer, who past away from cancer last week.

On a lighter note, Alicia Keys honored Stevie Wonder with the Billboard Icon Award. The duo performed a medley of Wonder’s hits, “Higher Ground” and “Overjoyed.” But before getting off the stage, the pair had one more surprise in store. With a little encouragement from Wonder, who recently celebrated his 62nd birthday and had one wish for the soulful songstress, Keys belted out the chorus of Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind.”

Russell Brand: “I Still Love Katy.”

Though it’s known Katy Perry and Russell Brand didn’t have the smoothest of divorces,  Brand has nothing but lovely things to say about Katy at his thursday appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show. 

“I still love her as a human being,” Brand said. “But, sometimes when you’re in a relationship I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything.” He went on to say that he was very happy to be married to Katy, because “she’s such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her.”

Still, when asked about their breakup, Brand said: “You can’t absolutely make everything the way you want it to be in life. Sometimes thing are just different and then you to just move with that and try and remain in contact with what is beautiful about yourself and each other with any situation.”

Very nice!  Both are rebounding, but I hope Brand’s words are truth and not just for the cameras.

Katy Perry goes goth!

Bright “California Gurl” Katy Perry has turned to the dark side!

The sexy singer stepped out to the NARM Music Biz Awards Dinner Party in Century City, California last night sporting a new goth look.

Wearing a tight black dress with some revealing cutouts, Perry matched her pale-looking foundation with dark lips and a heavy eye. Her purple hair looked longer and darker as well.

While she’s been linked to Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, she hit the red carpet solo.
