Katy Perry Glams Up For Her Big London Premiere

by Meg Malone

We’ve certainly had Spidey on the brain with the release of “The Amazing Spider-Man” today, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about the heart drawn on our calendar marking the release of “Katy Perry: Part of Me” on July 5.

Last week we saw Victoria Justice all dolled up in her heart-shaped 3-D glasses at the U.S. premiere, and now it’s Katy Perry‘s turn to celebrate her film’s London premiere in her typical sparkly style.

IT’S THE ?LONDON? PREMIERE! Even my lashes are excited! See you soon! #KP3D twitpic.com/a3gpz4

We’ve got to hand it to Katy—we can barely find time to brush mascara on in the morning, but this chick is always rocking the glam!

“Katy Perry: Part of Me” is a documentary chronicling the life of the singing star that will include her concert performances, a glimpse of Katy’s life backstage and offstage, and a look at her early life. Katy talked to MTV News at the U.S. premiere where she said that she hoped this film would be “an inspiration for people.”

Lucy Hale Lands A Little Bit Of ‘Sugar’ For New Album

by Danica Ruberti

Now that we know “Pretty Little Liars” star Lucy Hale has signed with big-time label Hollywood Records, the 23-year-old has fans wondering what she has up her sleeve. Well, don’t be surprised if you’re stuck like glue to her new album when Lucy goes country with Sugarland singer, guitarist and songwriter Kristian Bush!

Kristian sings alongside vocal giant Jennifer Nettles in Sugarland— the platinum-selling band that is known to get your hips swayin’ and your feet movin’. MTV News caught up with Lucy and got the scoop on her upcoming collaboration and the details on her new country-esque album.

“We have a week off from [‘Pretty Little Liars’], and I’m flying to Atlanta to write with Kristian Bush from Sugarland,” Lucy told us when asked about this upcoming collaboration. “They’re the biggest country band out there, and I don’t even know how I got that. I don’t even know! I got an email about it and it was obviously a no-brainer.”

A no-brainer not only because Sugarland is a country giant, but also because this is exactly the direction Lucy wants to take her new album. And we’re happy to say Hollywood Records head Ken Bunt is eager to make Lucy’s vision with this upcoming record come true.

“I told him [I wanted to sing] country, so I’m going to do a country/pop album, and I couldn’t be more excited,” she said. “I grew up in Tennessee, so that’s always been my heart and soul. It’s hard to come across a true country fan in L.A., but it’s true that the fans are so loyal, once you’re in their circle, you’re in for your entire career. It just really speaks to me. Country music has so much soul and is so heartfelt. I think it’s a perfect fit for me. I think it will surprise people.”
