Pink Regrets Picking Between Team Katy & Team Taylor: 'I Should've Just Kept My Mouth Shut'

Pink is speaking out against pitting pop stars against each other.

The 38-year-old Beautiful Trauma singer revealed to the LA Times that she briefly got caught up in some unwanted drama when asked “Team Katy or Team Taylor?” during a radio interview in August. She ultimately picked Taylor – but seems to regret that she even made a pick at all.

“I should’ve just kept my mouth shut, because I don’t believe that. I don’t care. But I felt rushed and I didn’t know what to do. And I paid for it, because then the next day: ‘Pink is Team Taylor,’” she explained.

She also reacted to the climate of pop star feuds in general: “It surprises me how snarky it’s gotten. There were always these feuds between rock stars — I mean, if you like Oasis, there’s always a feud. But it’s gotten pretty bad. And we’re giving our power away by playing into it,” she said.

Katy Perry Calls For 'Some Freakin' Peace' Following Las Vegas Shooting

Katy Perry took a moment to acknowledge the recent tragic events in Las Vegas during a Witness: The Tour stop.

The 32-year-old entertainer spoke out during her concert on Friday night (October 6) at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

“My wish is for some freakin’ peace! Don’t ya think?” Katy said to the crowd before her song “Part of Me.”

She continued, “This is one of my favorite songs to sing – I want to dedicate it to you guys. You chose to come out and overcome this dumb fear. You chose to come into the community of music and to be together…and be inspired.”

“This week has been crappy. This whole year has been crappy. We’re stronger than that. No one’s gonna steal our joy, are they? We’ve come together tonight just to escape it all a little bit,” Katy concluded.

Russell Brand Reflects on 'Wonderful' Marriage to Katy Perry

Russell Brand is looking back at his marriage with Katy Perry.

During a recent interview on The Wendy Williams Show, the 42-year-old actor reflected on his marriage to the 32-year-old entertainer and nothing but nice things to say about his ex.

“It’s a bit difficult to tell what’s going on in such a situation,” Russell said. “But it was a very, very wonderful time. She was lovely. She’s such a lovely person I’ve got nothing but love for her.”

Russell and Katy married in a lavish, traditional Indian wedding back in 2010 before he filed for divorce two years later.

When asked about Katy‘s new job on American Idol, Russell believes that Katy will be a good judge.

I don’t know much about American Idol or things like that,” Russell said. “I certainly think that she’s probably a very good judge so I certainly wouldn’t comment on how much she’s earning in the negative. I certainly wish her all the best in all of her endeavors.”

During a recent press event for Idol, Katy shared that she’s trying not to be mean during the auditions.

“The most challenging thing was trying to figure out was how to say ‘no’ to people at first,” Katy said who will be one of the judges of the new show alongside Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.

“I don’t think any of us believe in being nasty. What we believe in is being constructive, and giving constructive criticism,” Katy said. “Because it doesn’t help anyone, and people are really sensitive, and we understand because we all walked into a room like that at one time in our life.”

FYI: Katy is wearing a Christopher Kane dress.

'American Idol' Judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan & Lionel Richie Share Thoughts on Las Vegas Shooting on 'GMA'

American Idol judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan shared their thoughts on the Las Vegas shooting while making their first appearance together on Good Morning America on Wednesday (October 3) in New York City.

“It’s horrible. I think that everybody feels like their heart has just been ripped out of their chest,” Katy, 32, expressed. “We just don’t know when it’s going to happen again and we’re all trying to figure out the answers. I’m not saying I have the answers, and I pray every day. But the one thing we have to remember is prayer without action is powerless.”

“We have to have some action,” Katy continued. “We have to take an unfortunate, good, hard look at what our rules and our boundaries are with gun reform. No one is saying, ‘Take away your guns,’ but we just don’t necessarily need assault rifles, assault weapons.”

“We see the fans. We look at the faces every night on stage. We live for that,” Lionel, 68, added. “They blow the kisses, they sing every word to us. To think for a moment we are now getting to a stage where live performances are in jeopardy — the worst nightmare we ever have in life is something like that would happen.”

FYI: Katy is wearing a Christopher Kane dress.
