Katy Perry: Grammy Awards offer familiar stage as performer
Daybreak Daily’s afternoon throw-down with the pop-culture boys and girls finds funny hair, a boss, other things, and the mystery music video.
HAIR COLOR TBD: Katy Perry is set to perform at the Grammy Awards, apparently having fully shed her public-eye shyness after the Russell Brand breakup, per Celebuzz, “The blue-haired pop star is the latest performer to join the star-studden line up, which includes Adele, country singer Dierks Bentley, rapper/actor and current four-time nominee Drake and Grammy winner Miranda Lambert. No word on what pop hit she’ll be belting when she hits the stage, but it is sure to be a knockout performance — just like her previous ones.” http://bit.ly/ws6R6c
MEANWHILE: She’s talking to Paramount about making a concert 3-D movie, per Rolling Stone, “The studio, along with Imagine Entertainment, are still in early stages of developing the project, which is largely dependent on the logistics of filming, staging and releasing the movie. A source close to the deal says Paramount hopes to follow the template of last year's Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which now holds the box office record for the most successful concert film in the United States with a gross of $73 million.” http://bit.ly/yQK2k0
E-(STREET) TICKETS: Bruce Springsteen wants to peddle some seats to his approaching concert tour as non-transferable electronic tickets. And a battle begins, per the Los Angeles Times, “On one side is Ticketmaster, acting as a proxy for Springsteen, arguing that non-transferable tickets are meant to foil scalpers who scoop up tickets en masse and resell them at astronomical prices. On the other are ticket resellers who oppose paperless tickets, saying they restrict the consumer right to do what they want with tickets they purchase.” http://lat.ms/zfMMli
SO MUCH FOR SPECULATION: Taylor Swift had been the chief chatter choice, per BroadwayWorld, “Samantha Barks is set to play Eponine in the film version of Les Miserables - the role she played at the 25th anniversary concert. Cameron Mackintosh announced it live on stage at the Manchester Palace at the end of this evening's performance of Oliver!, in which Barks is currently playing Nancy.” http://bit.ly/xZjIhl
SNOOKI SNACK: She reacts forcefully when asked whether she’s pregnant, per TMZ, “The "Jersey Shore" star left Sirius XM studios in New York moments ago -- where she appeared on the Opie & Anthony radio show -- and a photog flat-out asked if the pregnancy rumor was true ... Snooki firmly replied, "NO!" Worse, Snooki's livid at rumors she's gained weight, claiming, "Why are people calling me fat? That's so rude!" Snooki said she does wanna get pregnant one day though.” http://bit.ly/ymSss9
RARE RHETORIC: Lisa Marie Presley wants to make a movie about her dad, per the AP, “The daughter of Elvis Presley said she has been in talks about a movie, though she didn't offer a timetable. "There's not been anything done properly with him yet, you know, that has satisfied me in terms of capturing everything," she told The Associated Press. "It will happen, though." http://apne.ws/wmk72s
SORRY, ‘STALKERS’: That’s the party line, anyway, per Radar, “Lindsay Lohan has ditched her condo in trendy Venice Beach because of security concerns and she is currently residing in a room at the infamous Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles for free, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.” http://bit.ly/xhf3Im
SELENA GOMEZ ALERT: She tells Cosmo, “I’m just like every 19-year-old-girl", per E!, “The 19-year-old Disney starlet not only shows off her sexy side—not to mention full-on cleavage—on the March cover of Cosmopolitan magazine, but she also dishes for the first time on what it's like to be the gal-pal of Mr. My World himself, Justin Bieber.” http://eonli.ne/yD4VQG
