While there is no foolproof process for locking lips, Katy Perry knew how to increase her odds exponentially.
Katy Perry said “Birthday” was the most insane video she’s ever done. In reality, it’s the most unexpected homage to Candid Camera that we didn’t know we wanted.
“It became this crazy journey of learning on the one hand, how daunting dealing with dementia is but on the other hand, how much I loved her. I started writing everything down and I started photographing her and I started writing songs.”

Billboard announced today (April 9) the finalists for the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. Both Imagine Dragons and Lorde lead the nominations in 12 of the 40 award categories, with Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis following close behind with 11, 10 and eight noms respectively.
