Katy Perry Unveils Official Art for Latest Single “Dark Horse”—Check It Out!

image

Katy Perry’s latest track art has officially been released.
The pop singer tweeted the abstract artwork for “Dark Horse,” her third single from her album Prism which features rapper Juicy J . Perry wrote, “ICYMI: the official ART for # DarkHorse by the talented @yaoxiaoart!”
New York-based illustrator Yao Xiao responded to Perry’s tweet with, “Thank you!! :3 have a great show in China.”
The colorful piece almost plays off of Katy’s look from the “Unconditionally” video, by dressing the animated photo of Perry in historic and regal attire. Or maybe she’s becoming that knight in shining armor that’s coming at you like a dark horse.
That would make sense.
Perry released the track on iTunes in September. The lyrics, which Katy cowrote with pal Sarah Hudson, make mentions of magic, perfect storms and Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. Juicy J spoke to MTV News about working with Katy, saying, “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.”
Fans seemed to respond well to the trap-pop creation. The track jumped into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 this week—going from No. 11 to No. 6—and reached the top spot on the iTunes download chart on Wednesday, Jan. 8.

Kim Kardashian is proving just how much her baby daughter North West looks like her.
The 33-year-old E! star took to her Instagram page earlier today to share a photo from when she was a baby. In the retro pic, Kim flashes a giant smile while being tickled by her grandmother in the bathroom (presumably after bath time). “#FlashbackFriday me and my grandma MJ,” Kanye West ‘s fiancée captioned the adorable snapshot.
Now compare Kim’s baby pic to the precious shot Kim shared of Nori in December.
In the close-up baby pic, a 6-month-old bright-eyed North holds a white blanket to her mouth while flashing a supercute smile. At the time, Kim simply captioned the pic, “SMILE!”
Can you see the adorable resemblance between little North and her mama’s baby pic?
Meanwhile, Kim shared a pic of little Nori holding her massive diamond engagement ring the other week as a nod to her big year (giving birth to baby North and getting engaged in 2013).
Kim also recently told fans via Twitter that having Nori was the absolute best thing she did in 2013 .

Jessica Simpson Covers the February 2014 Issue of Redbook

Jessica Simpson covers the February 2014 issue of Redbook .
Jessica wears a floral print dress in the cover photo shot by Matt Jones. In the interview, she talks about the media attacking her weight while she was pregnant and what it takes to make a marriage work.

On Criticism of Her Weight in the Media: “I never listen to it, no matter who the press talks about when they’re pregnant. It’s ridiculous and unfair. I think any woman who is pregnant and creating a life is pretty much entitled to eat whatever she wants as long as she’s healthy. I wasn’t going to let the media take away from what was one of the happiest times in my life.”

On What it Takes to Have a Healthy Marriage: “I’ve learned that sometimes love is not enough. You can have a soul mate and be madly in love with that person, but it’s not necessarily enough. I think you have to have personalities that mesh well. You have to be the yin to their yang. You also have to be open to figuring things out together and communicating – even when it’s the last thing you want to do.”

Harry Styles is reportedly planning a “series of activity dates” for Kendall Jenner

The One Direction heartthrob and Keeping Up with the Kardashians star are rumoured to be dating after they were seen together several times last year.
The 19-year-old singer is apparently extremely keen on model Kendall, so is preparing to go all out to impress her this year.
“Harry’s really keen on Kendall, so it planning a series of activity dates in 2014,” an insider told British magazine Heat.
It seems Harry has already put his plan into action as the pair were seen enjoying a ski break over the festive season.
The couple hit the slopes with friends in Mammoth, California, with Harry seen gazing adoringly at his model love interest and Kendall glancing around with a coy smile on her face.
The One Direction star has even started probing his supposed girlfriend for tips on how to impress her.
“He asked Kendall, 18, what she’d most like to do when he was back in America and she said horse riding,” the source explained. “She told him she adores horses and has been riding for ten years and if she wasn’t so busy with her fashion career she’d be riding all the time.”
Neither Kendall nor Harry have confirmed they are dating, with Kendall insisting they were just good friends last year. However, things are now said to have moved on and Harry has even met her father Bruce Jenner.
“When Harry and Bruce met at his Malibu home a couple of weeks ago, Harry charmed his way through the visit by talking about golf.
Bruce is very protective when it comes to his daughters,” a source told British newspaper The Daily Star earlier this month.
“He’s experienced how difficult it’s been to have a relationship in the public eye with his estranged wife Kris. Harry wasn’t in for an easy ride but things couldn’t have gone better, all thanks to golf.”

Kanye West reportedly wants honeymoon in space

Kanye West reportedly wants to honeymoon in space.
The Yeezus star is gearing up for his nuptials to fiancee Kim Kardashian, which are rumoured to be taking place this year.
But instead of the usual getaway to a beach in the sunshine, Kanye is said to want to visit outer space and enjoy his holiday among the stars.
“Kanye is obsessed with space and anything sci-fi – he’s shot many spaceship themed videos and he even considered training as an astronautical engineer. Now he’s fixated on the idea of honeymooning in space,” a source revealed to Britain’s Grazia magazine.
The 36-year-old singer is reported to have spoken to the people behind the world’s first ever space hotel to make a reservation for himself and Kim.
The CSS Skywalker will be an inflatable 330 cubic-meter station created by Bigelow Aerospace, and has been in the pipeline since 2009.
But timing could be an issue, as the hotel isn’t set to be launched until 2015, with stays costing $1million a night.
“Kanye is saying this will be their third honeymoon, as it won’t be ready for another year, so they’ll have two others before then.
“They’re multi-millionaires, so money is no object. Apparently, Kim wasn’t keen at first, but Kanye has talked her around and there’s even talk it will be chronicled on her reality show,” the source added.
The pair got engaged in October 2013, with Kanye pulling out all the stops to impress 33-year-old Kim. He hired an entire baseball park in San Francisco to get down on bended knee.
The pair have six-month-old baby daughter North together.
