Katy Perry Premiering ‘Part of Me’ Vid on Wednesday-
To prepare the masses for her newest single, “Part of Me” the 27-year-old pop singer has released a short preview of the video. Images in the clip confirm our suspicions that she was using a military theme and thus the video seems even more epic.
“Part of Me” is a previously unreleased single that did not make the original cut on Katy’s biggest record Teenage Dream, but will be featured in her new compilation Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.
Despite that fact that this song seems so timely in Katy’s life, she insists that it’s not about latest ex, Russell Brand. “I wrote it two years ago, which is funny because everyone is like, ‘Oh, it sounds so current!’” Perry said. “Some people I work with are like, ‘You should just say you wrote it a couple weeks ago.’”
But she didn’t. Keeping it so real. Get ready for the video! It Debuts on Wednesday March 21st. You can catch it right here on AMPradio.com.
Rihanna Dishes on Weight Loss Secrets: “Ice Cream..Fast Food”-
Maybe you haven’t noticed lately, but Rihanna is becoming a shadow of her former self. The Barbadian hit machine just recently finished her latest tour, but unlike many women, she isn’t stoked by the revelation at all.
Seems her steady diet of junk food on the road didn’t do her any justice at all. “I’m eating everything — people think I’m not eating,” she affirmed, “and I’m eating McDonald’s at 3AM type and it’s an issue. I’m eating ice cream.” When we first met the singer, while we could never call her large, certain assets of hers could easily be regarded as voluptuous. Alas, no more.
She credits her weight loss to not having a set routine or eating schedule. “It’s actually pretty annoying” she said of losing weight “Now, I don’t have a butt, no boobs — already had no boobs — so annoying,” she said. “It’s difficult to have any kind of routine when your schedule is that crazy,” Rihanna continued. “So I really have no idea how I’m continuously losing weight.”
Well it’s not the worst problem to have. She still looks good! HEEEEY!
T.I. Talks Album Collaborations-
Remember that time Taylor Swift brought out T.I. during her concert in Atlanta and they all sang “Live Your Life” together? Well it was awesome and Taylor Swift remains a friend of T.I. and the Grand Hustle label. That’s why she had the distinct pleasure of getting to work with T.I. and B.o.B. on a record that will appear on his sophomore effort, Strange Clouds.
When news first broke about a secret collaboration between the Kang and T. Swift, nobody wanted to break their silence. Tip must’ve been in good spirits at SXSW because when asked, he finally dished on the facts. “I can. I heard it,” he laughed, when confirming the collaboration track adding, “Taylor’s extended Hustle Gang. She a part of the crew. She just ain’t got her dog tags yet.”
Bobby Ray explained how the whole thing got started. You might be surprised to learn that Taylor Swift got the whole thing in motion. “She came to Atlanta and she hit up Grand Hustle,” he said. “I wasn’t there. Tip was there and I eventually linked with her in Dallas and the rest is history.”
“So Good” is the latest track off Strange Clouds burning up the charts. Keep an eye out for its release on May 1st.
We can’t wait for that track to drop. B.o.B., Taylor Swift, and T.I.-that sounds like magic!
