How Katy Perry can thwart GOP obstruction
When I first started hearing about this, and working with the White House on things in April, I was amazed at how little funding they had to promote this. Its like having the biggest movie of all time come out and not having a marketing budget for it. Farah, and Funny or Die, are among a small network of what you could call Obamacares celebrity volunteer army. Just as the White House understands that reaching the young and uninsured via more traditional marketing campaigns means partnering with less-mainstream media outlets, theyve also identified a number of celebrities with huge social media followings who want to make sure the uninsured have the date Oct. 1 seared into their minds. We saw the help that they needed, and the audience they were trying to reach, was so in line with Funny or Dies audience, Farah says. Unfortunately young people dont think about healthcare and so we need them to hear about this in different ways in different places for it to sink in. If its a Funny or Die video, tweet from their favorite athlete or musician, on Reddit. Theres so much crap out there its hard enough to get people to focus on Syria and Egypt. Funny or Dies goal here is to produce several videos in the next month, help them become self-perpetuating online, to increase awareness of the Oct. 1 launch date in the last days of September. Too soon, and people forget. Its an imperfect science, Farah says. Think of it like movie premier date.
Katy Perry’s ‘Dark Horse’ Shows Off Her ‘Genius,’ Juicy J Says
I never marked it down on my calendar for some reason. Is it always the Tuesday after Labor Day? Does that mean Im still allowed to wear white? Last time I checked, John Mayer was known for backing away slowly from commitment while wielding a cross and throwing garlic. Wasnt that rumored to be part of the reason Katy and John broke up? My oh my, what a change. Its like the proverbial tables were like, Were really uncomfortable from sitting in this same position all the time. What say we turn? Thatll be a nice change. And then poof, out popped this story. Not that I blame Katy Perry for being a little wary of marriage after the whole Russell Brand debacle. But I am currently brainstorming what Katy and John would look like if they switched clothes to match their switched attitudes. They havent put out a video for that duet yet , have they?
Katy Perrys Roar Aug 29, 2013 11:42am Getty Images Sara Bareilles has a message for all those people who think Katy Perry s song Roar sounds way too much like her hit Brave: stop the drama. While Bareilles hears some similarities between the two singles, she told ABC News Radio that she and Perry are on great terms and theres no issue there. Katys a friend of mine and weve known each other a really long time, so she even texted me about it and we went back and forth, Bareilles said. The shame that I feel thats happened is that its become a drama. Its putting this negative spin on two artists that are choosing to share positive messages, she added. Bareillespointed out, laughing, If Im not mad I dont know why anybody else is upset. Im like, Relax, lets just celebrate that we can be out there and encouraging people to, like, feel strong and empowered. John Mayer Not Running Anymore from Love with Katy Perry The 33-year-old singer has more important things to focus on right now: shes kicking off a co-headlining tour with OneRepublic on Thursday night in Colorado. The whole thing sort of just made sense to me, Bareilles told ABC News Radio about teaming up with Ryan Tedders band. Weve done a very limited amount of touring with them in the past, but we already know we get along great. And then I think just, musically speaking, its going to be a great crossover. I know my fans. If theyre not already familiar with them, theyre just going to love what they do. Bareilles predicted that there probably will be some sort of collaboration onstage between the two acts during the tour, and backstage, she said shed love the chance to write some songs with Tedder during the tour. Ryan and I have done a little bit of back and forth in the past, and nothing has come totally to fruition, Bareilles revealed. I dunno I think we probably have really compatible writing styles and I think hes such a brilliant writer.
Katy Perry Does Transcendental Meditation Every Morning
That song is amazing,” Juicy said of the track, which will be released early on September 17 after a fan-voted contest. Though we haven’t heard Juice’s verse yet we’ve only heard a snippet of the track a determined Katy appears to have her sights set on a certain lover, and she won’t take no for an answer. “So you wanna play with magic/ Boy, you should know whatcha fallin’ for,” she sings in a breathy tone. “Dr. Luke called me up and was like, ‘Hey man, Katy Perry wants you to do a song with her’,” J said of the “Roar” producer. Juice says that the recording session with Perry went smooth, so when “RapFix Live” host Sway Calloway inquired as to whether or not there was any twerking in between vocal takes, the rapper was very clear in his response. “No, no, no, no. She’s very professional, everything went smooth and she’s a great person,” he said. “My verse I did on that song, she was singing it. She’s really a genius, she was by the mixing board and telling the guy what to take in and take out. She’s really hands-on with her music, she knows music.” Though he’s been in the industry for over 20 years, Juice is having a resurgence of late, not just in the rap world, but amongst pop artists as well. Justin Timberlake lends his voice to “The Woods” from Juicy’s Stay Trippy album and the Three Six Mafia founder has also collaborated with Miley Cyrus on Mike Will Made It’s upcoming “23” single and a song of her own that may or may not end up on Bangerz.

The ancient Indian practice is called “Transcendental Meditation” and it involves 15-20 minutes of meditation and mantras. ”I start the day with transcendental meditation. It puts me in the best mood,” Katy recently revealed to Marie Claire magazine. “I wake up and just prop myself up in bed for 20 minutes. It’s the only time my mind gets absolute rest. When I’m asleep, my subconscious mind is switched on and, when I’m awake, I’m alert.” She also revealed more details about her extensive vitamin regime, which she provided photographic proof on Twitter when she posted a pic of herself holding an enormous bag of vitamins and supplements. ”Like everyone I have a four o’clock slump,” she explained. “I take vitamins after lunch and they give me an energy boost. I have iron, vitamins B, C and D and probiotics, which help with my digestion.” Well, it looks like the technique is working because
