Original story (3/1): Katy Perry and Lord of the Rings/Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom have broken up after a little more than one year together. “Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time,” the pair's reps jointly tell People magazine. Bloom and Perry appeared at Sunday's Vanity Fair Oscars party together.
Now! Onward! So: Katy's February comeback single "Chained to the Rhythm," featuring Bob Marley's grandson Skip Marley, was much-examined through the lens of political consciousness. And it's not gonna stop, with an a cappella Snapchat preview of new music ringing out, "I won't, no / I won't apologize / I will not, will not subscribe / Don't ask me, ask me to normalize."

At the GRAMMYs, the Hillary Clinton supporter performed with an armband reading "PERSIST" and shouted "No hate!" at the conclusion. In January, she wrote this:
