Did Katy Perry Bash Russell Brand and Divorce on Grammy’s

The Grammy’s is always full of surprises and this year’s ceremony was no different. Katy Perry’s performance left many people wondering if her performance was a not so subtle jab at her soon-to-be ex-husband Russell Perry.

Perry appeared on stage in a spacey gold, silver and black bodysuit and sang a newer song “Part of Me”, which was apparently aimed at Brand, instead of picking one of her well-known hits. With lyrics like, “You chewed me up and spit me out/Like I was poison/ You took my light, you drained me down… You ripped me off, your love was cheap,” it is hard not to think this song was about Brand.

Brand hit Perry with a divorce announcement early in January. He officially filed for divorced last week, which means the divorce will be final by the end of June. And though the couple didn’t get the guidance of a divorce attorney to write up a pre-nuptial agreement Brand is not trying to get hold of Perry’s fortune.

Grammy Awards 2012: As Houston’s Death Casts Shadow…

On an evening overshadowed by the shocking death of a singer who was once one of pop music’s most radiant young stars, the pop stratosphere’s latest bright light, 23-year-old British R&B-soul singer Adele, was lauded with Grammy Awards for cathartic music she channeled out of her own pain and despair.


Adele delivered the biggest single and album of 2011 with “21,” her sophomore outing that explored various facets of a painful romantic breakup, and she scored the year’s biggest single, “Rolling in the Deep,” in which the singer reaches to the depths of heartache to find solace and hope.

Those qualities ultimately eluded Whitney Houston, who died Saturday at age 48 on the eve of the Grammy show, after struggling for more than two decades with drug abuse and other issues. She died just hours before she had been scheduled to attend the annual pre-Grammy party hosted by Clive Davis, the veteran music executive who had discovered Houston and signed her to her first record contract nearly three decades ago and guided her to superstardom with soaring hits including “I Will Always Love You,” “Saving All My Love for You” and “Greatest Love of All.” Read More>>

Paul McCartney Gets Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star

Paul McCartney nabbed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Thursday, the last of The Beatles quartet to receive the honor.

“Way back in history, in Liverpool when we were kids … I would have never thought that the day would come when I would get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” he told the cheering crowd gathered to witness the unveiling.

McCartney, who has had a successful solo career since his Beatles days, received the recognition after his bandmates Ringo Starr, the late George Harrison and the late John Lennon all previously landed Hollywood stars.

The band itself even has a star on the Hollywood Boulevard strip, outside the Capitol Records building in downtown Los Angeles.

Dressed casually in jeans, a black jacket and his classic shades, the 69-year-old said Thursday he “couldn’t have done it without three boys … John, George and Ringo,” and added thanks to his supportive family.

McCartney’s new bride, third wife Nancy Shevell, and his son James, 34, were in attendance at the afternoon ceremony.

The English rocker was nominated to receive the star in 1993 but scheduling conflicts prevented him from attending until this year.

He is in Los Angeles in advance of his performance at the 54th annual Grammy Awards Sunday.
