Katy Perry Bids $50K For A Date With Her Boyfriend
Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani and Alanis Morissette were just some of the artists who performed this weekend at the One Love Malibu festival to raise money for the victims of the recent Woolsey fire. The event also included an auction, and Katy opened her wallet to help raise money, shelling out a huge sum on something she probably could have gotten for free.
One of the items up for grabs at the Christie’s auction was a motorcycle ride with Katy’s beau, Orlando Bloom, with Katy really selling it in order to drive up the price. “You can get a motorcycle ride with him to a lunch destination, and you can also have lunch with Orlando freaking Bloom," Perry told the crowd. "That also means when you're on the motorcycle ride with him, you're holding him in a way that I am not excited about. You’re holding his pecs and his six-pack!”
Katy’s description apparently enticed an audience member named Laura to bid $20,000 but she wound up losing, to Katy of course. She noted, “Laura, I’m sorry -- I’m buying it for $50,000.”
John Mayer & Halsey Clear Up Dating Rumors Once And For All
John Mayer and Halsey have been flirting up a storm on social media, but they insist they aren’t dating. Well, now they’ve once again taken to social media to deny they are anything more than friends.
Halsey appeared on John’s Instagram Live show, “Current Mood,” to set the record straight. The two used cue cards to play a game of “Are We Dating?,” with Mayer joking, "If we are dating, it’ll be great, and if we’re not, it’ll be fine!”
So, when Mayer asked if they were dating, Halsey held up her card with a “No,” with John doing the same. As for why they aren’t dating, John held up a cue card that read, “The fact that we’re both alpha types, while not prohibitive, would make a romantic relationship difficult, especially when compounded by the fact that we’re both highly driven and creative artists who value our independence.”
Halsey had the exact same written response, and then joked, "For being my not-boyfriend, you really do know me so well.”
