Katy Performs
After Pregnancy

THE Roar singer confirmed the baby news
on March 6 by showing off her baby bump
atthe end of her latest video, Never Worn
White. The baby belly was on display again
as Katy attended a media event for the
2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup at
Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia
on March 7, and she performed as a mom-to-be
at the big game between Australia and India on
Sunday. Katy wore two outfits for the gig – and
both showed off the fact that she’s expecting her
first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom. Ahead of
the show, the singer told fans she had sprained
her wrist but didn’t go into details, while during
the performance she gushed, “I hope it’s a girl,”
pointing at her belly.
The 35-year-old took to Instagram Live after
sharing the happy new and told fans that the tot is
due towards the middle of the year. “I am excited.
We’re excited and happy and it’s probably the
longest secret I’ve ever had to keep. And I like to
tell you guys everything but I knew I would tell you
in the best way, which is through a piece of music
because that’s... I guess that’s how I speak to you.
That’s how we speak together to each other.”
Meanwhile, Perry and Bloom, who is already a dad
to nine-year-old Flynn, have reportedly postponed
their nuptials to 2021 due to coronavirus fears in
Japan, where they had hoped to tie the knot.

Praise J.Lo For

Fighting Industry

THE PUSSYCAT DOLLS have praised Jennifer
Lopez for fighting ageism and creating a ‘new
era’ in music. Stars Nicole Scherzinger, Carmit
Bachar, Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts and
Jessica Sutta made their musical comeback
last year with new single React, but have been
criticised after a string of raunchy performances
featuring skimpy costumes and provocative
routines. In an interview, Jessica, 37, clapped
back at critics of the singers’ ages, insisting,
“There’s more acceptance
now. You’ve got J.Lo at 50
who’s looking as fabulous as
ever, and Lizzo who is all about
self-love and owning it. It’s a
new era, and there’s no rules
anymore.” Nicole, 41, made
similar comments, sharing, “I
mean if there is a time to be
more provocative, it’s when
you’re grown up, when you’re
comfortable in your skin and
you fully accept yourself,
right?” She went on to insist
inspiring confidence and
power has always been the
group’s message to their fans.
