That sound you might’ve heard earlier day was the collective gleeful purrs from KatyCats rejoicing Katy Perry announcing North American concert dates for her Prismatic World Tour. The 29-year-old entertainer will embark on a 4-month journey in the United States and Canada beginning on June 22 in Raliegh, North Carolina. Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves, Tegan & Sara and Becky G will open for her in different markets.

“THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is coming to light up some of my favorite North American cities this summer, as well as some new cities that you introduced me to through your video requests” said Katy. “This colorful show will bring you all the songs you know as well as ones from my new album, PRISM. I’m so excited that I got to hand-select some of my favorite artists to join me on this journey – I know you’ll love Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan and Sara as much as I do.”

The show will feature a state-of-the-art stage, specifically designed for Perry, that allows her to get closer to her fans than ever before. Citi® cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, January 21 at 10:00 am local time through Citi’s Private Pass® Program. Katy is teaming up with Tickets-for-Charity again to offer fans some of the very best seats in the house to benefit important charitable causes, available exclusively at www.ticketsforcharity.com. Additionally, $1 from each ticket sold for the North American leg of The Prismatic World Tour will be donated to UNICEF.

To launch her North American Tour, Katy asked fans on Instagram to tell her about their #PrismaticCity. Check out the video and concert dates below.

Nothing says true love like getting thrown off a mechanical bull with your loved one ;) For their sake, I hope John Mayer and Katy Perry stay together forever. It’d be painful for the dumpee to stumble upon their “Who You Love” visual during a moment of weakness. That’s the sucky thing about appearing on-screen with your real-life lover. When things go bad, accidentally looking back at happier times could open a floodgate of tears. I know I would.

Mayer and Perry dropped by ABC’s Good Morning America to premiere the visual for “Who You Love.” Just like the track itself, the video is simplistic but beautiful and heartfelt. Directed by Sophie Muller (Rihanna “Stay”), it shows couples including John and Katy riding a mechanical bull in slow-motion. For me, the most beautiful moments are when Mayer and Perry look into each other eyes and sing. Either they’re really in love or fantastic actors. I’m thinking the former. Kate Winslet and Daniel Day Lewis they are not. Check out the video below.

VEVO Reveals The 10 Most Played Music Videos In 2013

2013-most-played-music-videos-vevo

Despite all the headlines and chart success, Miley Cyrus received no Grammy nominations. I guess all her antics scared off Academy voters. Here’s a small consolation prize for being snubbed.

VEVO recently released their annual list ranking the ten most played music videos of the year. In no shocker, Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” topped the list. After all, the clip generated 19.3 million views on its first day of release and was the fastest to be certified in VEVO’s history by reaching 100 million views within just six days. As of December 1, the much-spoofed clip stood tall with over 371 million views worldwide. Last year’s winner, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen notched 357 million clicks in 2012.

The most interesting part of the list is how a couple of leftovers from last year made the list. Both Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and will.i.am’s collabo with Britney landed in the Top 10. On the flip side, Katy Perry breaking the Top 5 is equally as impressive, given that “Roar” only premiered just in August. Check out below what other clips were extremely popular in 2013.

Months after “Who You Love” first surfaced online, John Mayer and Katy Perry finally got around to pose for their duet’s official artwork. Perhaps it was due to their busy schedules or their on-and-off again relationship status that kept them from being snapped by famed photographer Mario Sorrenti. Whatever the reason, at long last we have the stunning black-and-white photos to check out. It’s a beautiful way to commemorate their collaboration.

“If the music is framed correctly and quality. And if it’s right and the soul is there, it would be the highest compliment to the record if somebody said or people said, ‘I don’t even think about it being [about] a relationship, I just hear it as a great song,’” – John Mayer

Surprisingly, the beautiful ballad hasn’t done well on the main chart, but has managed to break the Top 20 on both Billboard’s Adult Top 40 and Rock charts. Hopefully, coming soon is a music video to accompany these gorgeous pics. Check out the photos below.

songs-for-philippines-charity-album

In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan where thousands of lives were lost, the recording industry is banding together to raise money for the relief efforts. The three major record labels- Sony, Warner Music and Universal- created a compilation album titled Songs for the Philippines. It features 39 hit songs from some of the biggest names in the business.

Spanning multiple genres, you’ll find music from Justin Timberlake, Bob Dylan, Josh Groban, P!nk, Madonna and countless others. While some tracks like “Carry On” by Bruno Mars, “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson and “Brave” from Sara Bareilles feel appropriate, others seem out of place. “Best Song Ever” by One Direction and “Feel This Moment” by Pitbull and Christina Aguilera have me scratching my head. Oh well, I suppose casting the net a little wider doesn’t hurt. It’s nice to see artists with Filipino heritage also taking part, including Jessica Sanchez, Black Eyed Peas’ apl.de.ap and Mars.

All the artists, record companies and music publishers working on the project have waived fees. The compilation album is available on iTunes for only $9.99 with all proceeds being donated to the cause. Even if you have several of the tracks already in your music collection, I urge you to purchase the album. It’s a small price to shell out to help so many. On a day where many of us have so much to be thankful for, it’s nice to think of others who are less fortunate. If you want to donate more, there’s a link to the Red Cross from iTunes.

2013-amas-performances-winners

The 41th annual American Music Awards took place at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre Live on Sunday night with Mr. Worldwide aka Pitbull hosting. Random choice, right?

Heading into the evening, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis had the most nominations with six. Even though they nabbed two AMAs, Taylor Swift was the big winner of the night. The 23-year-old singer won four awards – Artist of the Year, Favorite Country Female Artist, Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, and Favorite Country Album for Red. It was her third time winning the year’s top prize!

The top male dog was Justin Timberlake who walked away with three statues. Other multiple winners were One Direction and Rihanna. The AMAs bestowed the latter with their first ever Icon Award which was presented to her by her mom. Adorable.

With regards to performances, Lady Gaga in my opinion stole the show alongside R. Kelly with their sexually-charged tribute to JFK and Marilyn Monroe. Other memorable highlights include Katy Perry’s Japanese-themed “Conditionally” number, DWTS’ Maks Chmerkovskiy tossing around J. Lo during her Celia Cruz homage, Miley Cyrus being accompanied by a giant kitty and Christina Aguilera’s beautiful duet with A Great Big World.

On the flip side, I was underwhelmed with both Ariana Grande and TLC. The former was fantastic vocally but a tad boring, while the latter served practically zero energy during their “Waterfalls” performance with Lil Mama subbing in for the late Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes. Check out all the performances and winners below.

Katy Perry Debuts Striking Video For Unconditionally

In: Donovan, Music

Thankfully, Katy Perry has forgone her usual campy antics and gone the glamourous route for her new visual. This refined sophisticated style suits her much more. If I never see those peppermint candy breasts spin again, I’ll be one happy man.

Inspired by period pieces like Dangerous Liaisons, director Aya Tanimura gives us a beautiful world filled with an elaborate ball with time-period appropriate choreography, a gorgeous owl flying in slow motion and Perry battling the elements while looking stunning the entire time. At one point, she’s even bursting into flames. Forget Katniss Everdeen or Alicia Keys, this girl is on fire.

“Yes, unconditional love sometimes feels like being hit by a car… Or being on fire… How does it feel to you?” – Katy tweeted about the video

As previously predicted, “Unconditionally,” is hands down her best music clip to date. Check out her striking new vid below.

Katy Perry switches gears for her new clip. She’s forgoing the camp and cheese found in “Roar” and going the glamorous route. “Unconditionally” could possibly be her best video to date. It evokes luxury to the max with it’s Great Gatsby-like vibe. Baz Luhrmann would be proud of all the excess. Plus, I’m a sucker for animals in slow-motion. That’s what made Drake & Rihanna’s “Take Care” visual so captivating. Katy features a stunning owl flapping its wings. Check out the 45 second preview below.
