Katy Perry Dishes on Her Dream Guy

 When it comes to turning hits, Katy Perry knows a thing or two. And when it comes to relationships, Perry knows even more. Through her divorce and break-ups, Perry is learning a lot, “It was emotionally traumatic for me. I was in fairy tale land, and the reality of it wasn’t so. I’m interested in colorful personalities. Look, I can’t be perfect. I don’t know. I think you love who you love. You learn over time. I mean, each one has been different. I tweeted the other day that I’m just looking for the prince that fits my glass Jordans slipper.” Well said, Katy!

 What is the greatest piece of wisdom you’ve taken away from previous relationships?

 Orlando Bloom Vs. Justin Bieber

 In one corner, we have 5’9, R&B sensation Justin Bieber; and in the other corner, we have 5’11 actor and international sex symbol Orlando Bloom. LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLLLLEEEEE!

 It was the fight seen (and scoffed at) around the world. The two were standing outside a restaurant in Ibiza when Bloom threw a punch at Bieber. Eye witnesses say the Biebs ducked the punch, and retaliated by screaming “She was good” to Bloom. Who is ‘she’ you ask? Bieber was likely referring to Bloom’s ex-wife, Miranda Kerr. Kerr and Bieber were rumored to have gotten “very, very close” in 2012 after Bieber performed at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.  And to add insult to injury, Bloom spent time with Selena Gomez, Justin’s ex, earlier this year.

 Since the fight, Justin has been posting (and quickly deleting) pictures of Miranda Kerr and unflattering photos of Orlando Bloom.

 Do you think a man fighting in your honor is sexy or sleazy?

 Adrienne Bailon Doesn’t Want to Be Known as “Rob Kardashian’s Girlfriend” Anymore

 Five years ago, before Kim Kardashian had an Instagram and back when Rob Kardashian had a six-pack, Rob also had a girlfriend named Adrienne Bailon. Bailon was fresh off the wildly successful Cheetah Girls franchise, and was an emerging actress. The couple had a very public relationship with the Keeping Up cameras, and the show captured every moment, including the fallout when Rob cheated on Adrienne.

 Despite going on to do movies and being a co-host on daytime television The Real, Bailon is mostly known for being a notch of Rob Kardashian’s belt. And she told Latina magazine just how much that irks her. “To be stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and to my career. I probably realized that too late—not that it would’ve affected my decisions in terms of who I dated, but it would’ve affected my decision to appear on the show. To this day, people will still say, ‘You ruined Rob’s life!’ and I’ll think, ‘Damn, I was still playing with Barbie dolls when I met him.'”

 Kim K. fought back on Twitter with, “#LETITGOOOOOLETITGOOOOO (FROZEN VOICE),” and “Funny how she says being with a Kardashian hurt her career yet the only reason she has this article is [because] she is talking about a Kardashian.”

 When dealing with an ex, is it better to stay quiet or air the dirty laundry?
