Purity Ring Drop A Powerful Remix Of Katy Perry’s “Rise”

42 minutes ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Canadian electronic act Purity Ring are back with a new release, dropping an official remix for Katy Perry’s recently released single “Rise.” The duo deliver a sturdy rework of Perry’s inspirational anthem, breathing new life into the song while pushing it to new heights with their signature synthpop vibes.

Purity Ring’s remix opens with a deep descending chord sequence and Perry’s recognizable vocal hooks. After a percussion free verse, booming kicks and rapid fire hi-hats take over as a ghostly vocal melody is layered over top, creating a haunting sheen that is as encapsulating as it is moving.

Purity Ring‘s “Rise” remix isn’t a major departure from Katy Perry’s original in that it maintains a similar identity, but actually manages to eclipse the album version with a production that improves on its sterile mainstream sound. The “Rise” remix pack is available now via »

We Ranked the Top Songs That Throw Shade—Find Out What They Are!

5 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We love a good revenge story as much as anyone—especially when it's in the form of a hit song. Just take Kanye West's newest track "Famous," for example, which takes credit for making pop princess Taylor Swift, well, famous. And speaking of Taylor, she's penned a fair share of her own gossip-laden lyrics, too. Remember when Joe Jonas left her for Camilla Belle and then she had a hit on her hands with "Better Than Revenge?" Or how can you forget "Bad Blood" that enlisted her whole squad to go up against frenemy number one, Katy Perry? But there's more where that came from. To find out which hit track burned the most, watch the video »

My family has always been very supportive of my career choice, and of course with every success the support grows. I don’t remember a time when my parents haven’t been supportive of me actually, as they believe that you must always follow your dreams to be happy, and being happy is really the only important thing in life. I am very fortunate in this way, actually, I can’t imagine trying to get through »

Katy Perry Shares Her Thoughts on Catfish Victim Who Believed the Two Had Been Dating For Six Years

26 August 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ugh! We feel for this guy. On a recent episode of MTV's Catfish, hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph set out to uncover whether or not one man was being fooled by an impostor. A man named Spencer Morrill believed he had been talking to Katy Perry for six years and had even purchased an engagement ring. Unfortunately, as one might expect, he was being trolled, and the "Rise" singer was not on the other end of the screen. We can't even imagine what a bummer this was for the poor guy. Perry went on The Morning Mash Xm radio show and expressed her thoughts on the unfortunate matter. When someone sent her the link to the story, Katy said she didn't actually read it "because I just think it's »

‘Madonna: Truth or Dare’ Director on the Film’s Legacy, Lgbtq Impact, and David Fincher’s Next Projects

26 August 2016 12:22 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Many who haven’t seen Madonna: Truth or Dare can still claim to know it in a cultural sense — probably thanks to Saturday Night Live, if anything else. The film’s recently been restored on the occasion of its 25th anniversary, and will begin a new run at Metrograph today. This also marks an occasion to speak with the film’s director, Alek Keshishian, who’s had a closer access to Madonna than just about any filmmaker, working or otherwise, and who proved remarkably open about the story behind his documentary classic.

But how else could one be? Truth or Dare still surprises in how much it revealed, even if we’re only talking about the star’s distaste for Kevin Costner and even (or especially) if its all-access quality means a bit less in light of today’s social-media-obsessive stars — one of many areas we managed to cover in our time. »

24 August 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The seating arrangement at the MTV Video Music Awards is often half the fun of the award show. How would we get reaction GIFs of Taylor Swift dancing, or the secret love affair between Katy Perry and Rihanna? Turns out, that magical arrangement is the result of a careful, months-long dance between MTV and the stars attending the VMAs. MTV music and talent vice president Gina Esposito told Cosmopolitan that stars send requests to sit next to other artists, and the network will try to accommodate them because they know that stars who are friendly with each other will create good moments on-camera. »

The 1 Celebrity-Inspired Group Halloween Costume You Haven't Thought of Yet

24 August 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Grab five of your closest friends (or frenemies), because we've got a group Halloween costume that is made for celebrity feud junkies. As you likely know, all hell broke loose in June when Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris broke up after a year of dating. There was lots of back and forth social media drama and veiled insults about her new relationship with actor Tom Hiddleston. At the same time, trouble was brewing between Taylor and her supposed pals Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, most notably when Kim released video footage of Taylor discussing the lyrics about her in Kanye's song "Famous" that proved Taylor had lied about having no involvement in the song's creation. Throughout all of the drama, Taylor's friend-turned-enemy Katy Perry was likely sitting back with her hands behind her head, quietly cackling. She did send out a few tweets that seemed to be aimed at Taylor »
