Katy Perry Attends Coachella and is Spotted with New Boyfriend

Katy Perry seems to be getting back to her cheery self since her divorce from actor/comedian Russell Brand.

Perry attended week 2 of the Coachella music festival in California, but she wasn’t alone! Katy Perry was all PDA with her alleged new boyfriend, Florence + The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd. TMZ reports that the two were spotted together at the music festival and some reports say that Perry is already calling him her “boyfriend.”

Ackroyd was performing at the festival on the Outdoor Stage with Florence and the rest of the band, but when he wasn’t on stage he was spotted cuddling with Perry while watching the other bands perform. Ackroyd even tweeted:

“Best Coachella ever. Scratch that, best weekend ever. Dre, Snoop, Pac, Nate, Fiddy, & KP.”

What do you think of the new supposed couple???

Rihanna Responds to Marijuana Photo Controversy

Photos of Rihanna appearing to be rolling a blunt of weed at the Coachella music festival this past weekend have sparked criticism towards the R&B singer all over the Internet, but Rihanna has some words for those who have harsh feelings towards it.

Thursday afternoon MTV wrote on their Twitter account:

“Yikes. @Rihanna’s marijuana photos from Coachella spark controversy.”

Along with the tweet MTV posted the photos that were taken from Rihanna’s Instagram, drawing a response from Rihanna herself, tweeting:

“@MTV Yikes… @rihanna ran out of f***s to give.”

MTV has since deleted their tweet, however t story remains on their website.

Rihanna had some words for her fans who were concerned about the photo. On Tuesday she tweeted:

“I’m crazy, and I don’t pretend to be anything else.”

Well, what do you think of the photos?? Oh, and Happy 420!

Could NYC’s Catalpa Festival Become the East Coast Coachella?

It seems like there are destination music festivals all over the United States, but one of the most popular cities in the nation is missing from that list — New York City! But, that could change very soon…

California has Coachella, Tennessee has Bonnaroo, and Chicago has Lollapalooza. This summer will mark the very fist Catalpa Festival in the New York City area. The Catalpa Festival, which will be held on Randall’s Island on July 28th-29th, has just been announced and so far the list of artists performing includes the Black Keys, TV on the Radio, Snoop Dogg, City and Colour, Umphrey’s McGee, The Big Pink, AraabMuzik, Felix Da Housecat, and Fort Atlantic. More artists are expected to be announced soon.

This summer will bring back Governors Ball to New York once again and Metallica will host their Orion Festival in Atlantic City (last year was San Francisco), so what makes Catalpa more of a sure “east cost Coachella-type???”

The event will also feature a “Taste of New York” with food from some of the city’s best eateries, Art Installations, a Silent Disco Tent, and a structure built by Arcadia (a sculpture-based organization that takes military scraps and turns them into “positive environments for the purpose of celebrating life”).

The most creative part of this festival (and one of my favorites) is the Church of Sham Marriages. An inflatable church will be available for anyone who wants to have an impromptu fake wedding with the “pimp or pastor.” For those who want to get married for real, that option is available too.

The festival is produced by Dublin production company Frisky. Early bird weekend passes are available now for $99. A ferry pass is available for $35. Shuttle and parking options are also available. To find out more about the Catalpa Festival click HERE.

Do you think the east coast will get their very own Coachella???
