Katy Perry hopes to take a break after film premiere

While Katy Perry fans line up to see her new 3-D documentary next week, Perry herself may very well be camped out in a “cave” somewhere.

The pop singer told the Los Angeles Times that she’s so worn out from touring, performing and everything else on her jam-packed schedule that all she can think about is taking a long-deserved break.

Katy Perry's 'Part of Me' to show 'everything'

Katy Perry says her upcoming autobiographical film will touch on her life, warts and all - including her breakup with ex-husband Russell Brand.

The pop star told Ellen DeGeneres Tuesday that fans can expect to take a ride on her personal roller coaster, experiencing the highs and the lows when her 3-D concert flick, “Part of Me,” hits theaters this July.

"I thought it was important for me to show everything in between," the 27-year-old singer said of her “bumpy” ride personally and professionally.

Katy Perry and Rihanna to collaborate?

It looks like Katy Perry has a bit of a musical crush.

The “Last Friday Night” singer told MTV she's eying a duet with Rihanna.

"I've always wanted to [collaborate with her] and she's always wanted to and that's very genuine," Perry said during "MTV First: Katy Perry," which aired on the network on Wednesday. "We're not just shooting the sh–. We're not, like, just kind of beating around the bush. But really we want to."

Does Brand have anything to do with Katy Perry's Grammys song?

Does Brand have anything to do with Katy Perry's Grammys song?

Katy Perry's "Part of Me" performance was in good company at Sunday's Grammys, as she wasn't the only one singing of broken hearts and relationships gone wrong.

Adele, the current queen of lovelorn pop songs, also took the stage to croon about getting played to the beat after handing her heart over to a paramour.

It's possible that Perry's fiery performance of her new single was just keeping in line with that theme, or perhaps she was singing generally of the emotions one has after a break-up. Or, as some have questioned, maybe those lyrics were inspired by recent events in her personal life.

Katy Perry dedicates Super Bowl song to Tebow

Tim Tebow wasn't playing in Sunday's Super Bowl, but you might've thought he was by the way Katy Perry kept dropping his name.

The pop star was on hand in Indianapolis, Indiana to play her first U.S. performance since splitting from Russell Brand in December, and E! reports that she also handed out an award at the NFL Honors ceremony on Saturday.

Tebow, who happened to be sitting in the front row of the audience, was called out by Perry, who may have heard the gossip that her parents are trying to set her up with the quarterback. "Hey Tim," Perry said while handing off the first honor of the night, "my parents say 'Hi.'"

Katy Perry's dad apologizes for anti-Semitic remarks

Katy Perry’s father, Pastor Keith Hudson, has apologized after being criticized by two prominent Jewish groups for giving a sermon that included anti-Semitic remarks.

The evangelical preacher drew ire from the Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Monday because of remarks he made about Jews during a recent speaking engagement at the Church on the Rise in Westlake, Ohio.

“You know how to make the Jew jealous? Have some money, honey,” Hudson allegedly said. “You go to L.A. and they own all the Rolex and diamond places. Walk down a part of L.A. where we live and it is so rich it smells. You ever smell rich? They are all Jews, hallelujah! Amen.”
