Good Morning America

Video: John Mayer & Katy Perry Debut "Who Do You Love" On GMA

You love who you love,” sing John Mayer and Katy Perry in their new single together, and their new video reveals that “who you love” is someone with whom you’re willing to ride — and fall off — a mechanical bull.

The two stopped by “Good Morning America” on Tuesday morning to debut their music video for “Who You Love,” which shows couples riding mechanical bulls in slow motion. Mayer and Perry also saddle up in front of falling fireworks, and sing to each other throughout the video.

The appearance marked their first television interview together. “We don’t know exactly what kind of body language we’re supposed to be exhibiting at the moment,” joked Mayer of the onscreen nuances. “You get too close, it’s a little too touchy-feely, and then you get too far, they say, ‘I don’t see chemistry.'” Perry added, “They’ll see chemistry in the video.”

Katy Perry’s PRISM Debuts at #1

(pr)—PRISM, Katy Perry’s new studio album, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. According to Nielsen SoundScan, 286,344 units were sold in the US in the album’s first week of release – giving the global pop superstar the best sales week of her career and reflecting a nearly 50% increase over first week sales of 2010’sTeenage Dream, which debuted at No. 1 in eight countries and spent more than two years on the Billboard 200. The strong showing also marked 2013’s largest US sales week for a female artist. PRISM is the first No. 1 album for the Capitol Music Group since Chris Tomlin’s Burning Lights topped the chart in January and the first No. 1 album for the Capitol label since August, 2012.

The album is a global smash as well, shooting to No. 1 on iTunes in 90 markets around the world. Lead single “Roar” has already sold more than five million singles worldwide. It’s certified 6X Platinum in Australia (where it’s topped the chart for nine consecutive weeks), 4X Platinum in Canada (where it has become the biggest-selling single in chart history and has been the No. 1 airplay record on three formats for five weeks running) and 2X Platinum in New Zealand (where it’s been No. 1 for 11 consecutive weeks). “Roar” has gone Platinum in the UK, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Ireland and Sweden and is certified Gold in 10 countries.

“Perry has never sounded better,” said People. “This is a pop blockbuster that easily beats 2010’s hit-laden behemoth Teenage Dream.” “She’s making the mainstream not just swimming in it,” noted Entertainment Weekly while Idolator hailed the album as a “transcendental pop experience.” “Prism strikes a newly sophisticated balance between accessibility and idiosyncrasy,” observed the Los Angeles Times and The New York Timessaid, “Katy Perry is the most potent pop star of the day.”

Following the success of “Roar,” PRISM’s second single, “Unconditionally” is undeniably Katy’s next hit. Over 200 Pop, Rhythm and HOT AC stations have already added it and the song is already in the Top 20 most played at Pop in its first week- it’s no doubt that the song’s rapid rise is the making of yet another smash album.

Katy celebrated the release of PRISM with a series of special events:

– The Katy Perry iHeartRadio Album Release Party was the inaugural event at Clear Channel Media and Entertainment’s new iHeartRadio Theater Los Angeles. The October 22 event featured a live performance and Q&A with Katy, hosted by on-air talent/TV personality Mario Lopez. It aired live on 175 Clear Channel Contemporary Hit Radio (CHR), Rhythmic CHR, Adult Contemporary (AC) and Hot AC stations around the country and exclusively online at Yahoo Screen. The party was televised on The CW Network later that week. Katy also took over all Clear Channel CHR radio stations nationwide and on iHeartRadio as guest DJ, as CCM+E branded its stations “Katy Perry Radio” for the entire day.

– Citi and CBS Radio presented Katy Perry’s WE CAN SURVIVE on October 23 at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl. Ellie Goulding, Sara Bareilles, Tegan & Sara, Kacey Musgraves and Bonnie McKee joined Katy in the sold-out show with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Young Survival Coalition, the premier global organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.

– On October 25, Katy’s performance at Colorado’s Lakewood High School aired live on “Good Morning America.” Lakewood was one of nearly 1,000 high schools that submitted lip dub videos of “Roar” to the “Good Morning America’s ‘Roar’ With Katy Perry Contest.” View Katy’s performance and the winning clip here.

Katy co-wrote each track on PRISM, with various producers including Max Martin, Dr. Luke, Klas Ahlund, and Greg Wells.

Marie Osmond: ‘Britney Spears Will Feel Right At Home In Vegas’

Veteran entertainer Marie Osmond is confident Britney Spears will settle in Las Vegas in no time when she starts her residency at the Planet Hollywood resort in December (13) – because it’s like a “stay-at-home” job.

The Paper Roses hitmaker is currently performing with her brother Donny at the Flamingo Las Vegas hotel and casino, and she admits juggling her career with motherhood has been made all the more bearable by working and living in one place.

Speaking on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America, Osmond says, “I have loved Vegas actually because, being a mum, I have eight children – four at home still, and you know, it’s a nice stay-at-home job.

“Celine (Dion), myself, we live there and there’s something nice about not being on the road, not being at different venues. I tour for Christmas shows and things like that, but there’s some stability and I can understand why she (Spears) wants to do that.”

Dion is currently in residence at the Caesars Palace resort in Sin City.

Katy Perry Reveals ‘Radiant’ Prism Cover

Hours after she premiered her jungle-themed video for “Roar,” Katy Perry woke up early on Friday (September 6) to appear on “Good Morning America” to debut her Prism album cover.

The simple cover art for the October 22 release features the singer standing in the rainbow-hued sunlight. “I shot it with this amazing New York photographer named Ryan McGinley. And I just wanted it to be pure and radiant and full of light,” she said on “GMA” about the image, which she shot in upstate New York.


“The reason why I named the record Prism is because, you know, for a minute I was going through a transitional period in my life. It was a little bit dark, yes, but it was kind of like what they call your return of Saturn; it’s when you’re about to go into your 30s and you actually have to be an adult,” she explained. “But, you know, I embrace the light. I let the light in and it influenced all my songs and then I get to kind of beam the light out to all my fans through these songs. I want to make people happy, and smile.”

Channing Tatum Talks Fatherhood

It’s only been three weeks since he officially became a father with the birth of daughter Everly, but Channing Tatum has already learned a few things about parenthood. He opened up about being a father this week in interviews promoting his new film White House Down.

“I’ll give you some baby advice: You’re not going to do anything for the first six months. You’re just like, ‘Can I have the baby at some point today?’ You’re never going to be so excited when something poos,” Tatum told Extra’s A.J. Calloway. Calloway is currently expecting a child with his fiance Dionne Walker.

Another thing Tatum has learned is how fast babies grow. “I’m away from her for 12-13 hours and I feel like I come home and I feel like she’s changed—like her face looks different. You feel like every minute that you miss is horrible,” he told E!.

As for how wife Jenna Dewan is handling motherhood, the actor revealed, “She’s good, she’s really good. Tired, you know…just taking care of the baby on those first months. First months are hard.”

Tatum told Good Morning America that he received some good advice from his White House Down co-star Jamie Fox. “Jamie told me, he’s just like, look, you’ve got to learn how to be a father and a buddy, like a homey, to your little girl and be a person that she can come and talk to as well,” said Tatum.

White House Down hits theaters this Friday.
