In the video, Katy Perry's looking, but not seeing. She's somewhere else entirely.

Her glazed eyes belie a world of weariness—or is it a dream of another world, a parallel universe? We can only imagine what's spinning inside her mind.

Pop musician Katy Perry is known mostly for gallivanting on top of clouds and shooting whipped cream out of her bra, but in the video known only as "Katy Perry deep in thought at breakfast," she shows us that there are many more facets to Twitter's most popular account-holder than any of us imagined.

She's wearing striped pajamas and her hair is short. Sitting alone, she gazes off into the distance. She has a cup of coffee in front of her, but she's not drinking it. Instead, she absently fiddles with the spoon and chews on something absentmindedly. Her blue eyes are bright beneath their impenetrable glaze.

She looks, if not exhausted, then spent. She looks like everyone on the subway in New York looks at 6:30PM on weekdays or 4:00AM on weekends. She is elsewhere, dissociated, removed, gone. Perhaps she's floating on the astral plane, or maybe just hallucinating. Maybe she's actually an android whose mind has just recently become aware of its true nature. Maybe she has just cracked the code to the Matrix. Maybe she's been possessed, a la Laura Palmer in Twin Peaks—the red curtains are evocative of that show's seminal red room, and the scene is definitively Lynchian. There's also an Edward Hopper kind of domestic apathy to the scene, a kind of resigned loneliness that is evocative of the cosmopolitan dissociation of Nighthawks.

What is she thinking, for God's sake? Is she calculating how to hack the Twitter algorithm, so that she might end up with almost as many followers as the President of the United States and Kim Kardashian combined? Maybe she's dreaming up her next "Firework"? Or is it something more?

Look, there's something weird about the video, something off or skewed, which is perhaps why it has haunted me for so long. I have so many questions. We are told that she filmed this as part of a 4-day Orwellian spectacle in which she allowed a camera to follow her around 24/7. But why is she wearing so much eyeliner? And what's with the prison pajama suit?

Aesthetically, the footage resembles a grainy 1990s TV special or one of those hand-held horror movies, complete with the local time emblazoned in the right corner. The time, 11:26 AM, is printed on an image of an eye-shaped outline filled with several rainbow-colored rectangles, which may or may not signify something. Like the Trystero symbol in Pynchon's Crying of Lot 49, is that symbol trying to link us up to some postmodern underground cult of people trying to connect in a world outside capitalism's invasive presence? Is 11:26 the answer to some secret code?

The footage evokes bygone eras in part because she is not looking at her phone, a fact that could be the source of the video's strangeness. We never see anybody spacing out anymore. There is no room for space, not in the collapsed digital landscape where everything is literally at our fingertips, just an Amazon link away. In fact, her decision to simply not participate in a world that perpetually demands our attention and participation is almost radical.

Whatever she's thinking, she doesn't seem too concerned. She seems a bit bored, a bit detached, maybe incredibly hungover. This leads me to think that it really is Katy Perry sitting there and not an android, though you never know.

Knowing that this is part of a live-stream meant to let people into her life makes it even more strange, more full of contradictions. Maybe she's exhausted beyond belief by the perpetual surveillance, or she's contemplating reality and mankind's place within it, or she's simply inviting us to witness the lost art of being lost in thought. Or maybe she's stoned. Who knows?

Whatever it is, I relate.

The MailOnline are reporting that supermodel Miranda Kerr has accepted a marriage proposal from her boyfriend Evan Spiegel and is officially engaged.

Spiegel is the founder of Snapchat and is worth, wait for it, a staggering $2.1 billion. He started the social media phenomena while he was still at Stanford, apparently as a way to "be cool".

Kerr, who was a Victoria's Secret Angel, was previously married to Orlando Bloom for three years with whom she shares a five year old son, Flynn. She met the actor in 2007 and they married in 2010.

The end of their marriage was more than a little messy.

In October 2012 Justin Bieber was the musical guest at the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and rumors soon started circulating that he and Miranda were exchanging flirty texts and had hooked up after the show.

Kerr and Bloom broke up officially in the fall of 2013, although speculation had been rife for the previous few months and their separation statement confirmed they had been living separate lives for six months prior to the announcement.

Bieber meanwhile, had been dating Selena Gomez for two years when the rumors about him and Kerr erupted, and the tweenagers favorite couple broke up shortly afterwards. They then entered an on/off period with Biebs periodically posting pics on social media hinting at their reconciliation.

Complicated love triangle....

During this time, pictures emerged of Gomez hanging out with none other than Orlando Bloom, with the pair both claiming to be just pals hanging out.

It all came to a head in July 2014 when a video was taken of Bloom and Bieber who happened to be at the same venue in Ibiza. The footage shows Bloom throwing a punch at Bieber after ever mature Biebs allegedly made a derogatory comment about Kerr. They were eventually pulled apart by friends, but Bieber added fuel to the fire by posting a pic of Miranda to his Instagram account with a crown symbol, before quickly deleting it.

Miranda soon finds happiness...

The scandal eventually died down and Miranda met her new husband-to-be shortly afterwards in 2014 at a Louis Vuitton dinner in New York.

They went public with their relationship in June 2015 and she has spoken about the importance of their friendship and his relationship with Flynn. She told The Edit earlier this year;

"We were really good friends for a long time before we started dating. [Orlando and I decided] that we had to know the person for six months and feel good about them [before introducing them to Flynn]....

Evan met Flynn, so year, things are going well. Orlando thinks he's great. We're just a modern family now."

At 33, Kerr is seven years older than Spiegel, however the age gap is not a problem for them. She said to The Edit;

"He's 25, but he acts like he's 50. He's not out partying. He goes to work in Venice [Beach]. He comes home. We don't go out. We'd rather be at home and have dinner, go to bed early."

A spokesperson for Spiegel, who is the Snapchat CEO told the MailOnline following the engagement announcement;

"They are extremely happy."

Kind of a given really!

Miranda later shared a pic of her beautiful engagement ring (as befits the fiancee of a billionaire) on Instagram.

Congratulations to the happy couple!




Are you going on vacation this year?

What do you wear to travel long haul?

Jeans? Sweats? Or a full on stylist put together outfit complete with sky rocket heels? (No prizes for guessing which of these three the Kardashian Klan opt for).

Some celebrity travel attire has to be seen to be believed. Now obviously they don’t fly coach so have all the room they need to change mid air, but even so—could you squeeze your feet back into a pair of tiny stilettos after a 12 hour flight?

Miranda Kerr has revealed she prays for forgiveness every day - both for herself and others.

The model has been making headlines recently thanks to ex-husband Orlando Bloom smacking the shit out of Justin Bieber, who Miranda ALLEGEDLY had a little hanky-panky with last year (shudder).

Because everyone is innocent until proven guilty, we're not going to just assume Miranda feels guilty about sleeping with the douchiest douchebag on earth - but if she did, she needs to apologize to EVERYONE.

"We're all humans and we all make mistakes—even little things like looking at someone the wrong way, or snapping at someone. But forgiving yourself and asking for forgiveness from the person creates an energy shift," Miranda tells Into The Gloss. "It's another thing I pray for—'Please forgive me if I have said anything to anyone that has hurt someone. Please allow them to forgive me and allow me to forgive myself.'"

Meanwhile, Orlando seems to be reveling in his new hero status, and quite right too!

Miranda Kerr Is Engaged To Her Billionaire Boyfriend—Snapchat Founder Evan Spiegel

Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber's beef went VERY VERY public during the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The actor and singer got into a physical fight at Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza—which was caught on camera—and you can watch it right here on Popdust.

In the video you can see Bloom lash out with a right hand shove to the Bieb's face as his bodyguard steps up in an attempt to shield him.

According to TMZ , directly after the blow, Justin screamed "What's up bitch?" before fleeing the restaurant to rapturous applause.

Bad blood has been brewing between the Biebs and the Bloom since 2012 when Justin was spotted getting cozy with Orlando's then-wife, Miranda Kerr at a Victoria's Secret fashion show after party in NYC.

It was ramped up a notch this April when Orlando was snapped hanging out with Selena Gomez.

Meanwhile, he may have fled the scene of the fight, but the Biebs still managed to deliver the last blow—kind of—shortly after their altercation Justin posted a pic of Miranda on Instagram—he's since deleted it.
