Katy Perry is releasing a Christmas single possibly for H&M. We knew it all along!

Christmas is definitely coming early from the KatyCats this year as it’s been confirmed that Katy Perry will release a Christmas single named ‘Every Day Is a Holiday’ this December. We told you, didn’t we? Remember? Last month.

We’re almost excited for this as we are our 1D advent calendar.

Fans seem to think that the track could have been recorded to accompany this winter’s H&M advertisement campaign. H&M like to change their ‘face’ a lot, don’t they?

But the most surprising this about this new Christmas track is that it was co-written by none of than Duke Dumont. Could we see Katy record a special ‘Need Christmas (100%)’ by the end of the year?

Are you excited for ‘Every Day Is a Holiday’? Let us know on Twitter at @maximumpop.

Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and Katy Perry are slaying the social media game

We see it everyday—someone like Taylor Swift posts a picture on Instagram, and within seconds, thousands of likes and comments start pouring in. (Ever wonder what her notifications must look like?) In the game of social media, numbers matter most. So here are the musicians with the best social media numbers, as told by CBC Music.

That’s right, Taylor has over 176 million combined followers on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, placing her at the top of the chart. Justin Bieber isn’t too far behind her, with over 175 million, and Katy Perry comes in third with over 171 million. The lowest number on the top ten is Jennifer Lopez, who has over 102 million—which is still more than entire population of the Philippines, the 12th largest country in the world, for reference.

Christmas has come early… Katy Perry has teased she’ll release a festive single.

With just 134 days until Christmas (yes, we’re already counting) – we’ve become even more excited about this year’s festive season as Katy Perry has teased to her millions of Instagram fans that 2015 is the year that she releases a Christmas single.

The short video upload shows four people dressed as elves sitting on chairs with what looks like a Christmas tree in the corner of the room and stockings hanging on the wall.

The caption reads “When your derp squad writes a Christmas song in August.” But you’ll know all this if you position your eyes below and watch the Instagram vid for yourselves.

Can you guess the popstar from the Twitter bio? Take our quiz to find out.

After Zayn tweeted about the new One Direction single, we’ve been glued to the social media site anticipating their replies and whilst we were snooping, we had an thought. How many of our faves’ Twitter bios do we know off by heart? And then we had another though. How many of YOUR faves’ Twitter bios do YOU know off by heart?

So we decided to throw together a little quiz to see how good you are. No cheating, now!

Keeping with the Twitter theme, why don’t you let us know how well you did over on @maximumpop. Give us a follow whilst you’re there, too. We’ll send you cookies!

Tay Swift is throwing some major shade during one of her recent concerts.

We all know of the beef between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, but has Tay gone a little too far this time?

During Katy’s Super Bowl half time show back last February, she had the iconic ‘Left Shark and Right Shark’ dancing around her beach themed stage.

At her 1989 tour stop in Boston, Taylor had a little puppet shark dancing over her left shoulder (in relation to the left shark in Katy’s performance). She began laughing, and we can tell it probably was not a coincidence.

We just honestly want the feuding to stop and have all the celeb ladies be friends!

Selena Gomez called Katy Perry after filming the ‘Bad Blood’ video. Find out what she said here.

Selena Gomez has been speaking about her involvement in Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ music video and what her friend – and the song’s inspiration – Katy Perry had to say about it. It turns out that she didn’t have a lot to say at all.

Bad-Blood-Taylor-Swift-3

 

Selena, who’s currently promoting new single ‘Good For You’, was speaking to New Zealand radio show The Edge about starring in the video and revealed that she DID phone Katy after the video. But they didn’t talk about her starring role as Arsyn.

“I love Katy. I just talked to her,” Selena told the station. “She’s amazing. But I didn’t talk about that, but I just talked to her. She’s awesome.”

We wonder what Katy does think of it. Bet she had a good ‘Roar’ about it.

Katy Perry’s manager says she hasn’t recorded a shady T-Swizzle track. Boo, we kind of wanted a musical catfight.

After Taylor Swift detonated the ultimate music war bomb with ‘Bad Blood’ which is seemingly aimed at Katy Perry, the world has been waiting for the ex-BFFs’ next move. We all got a little bit excited when a new track named ‘1984’ was registered under Katy Perry’s name, holding baited breath to see if the song was going to throw major shade at Swifty or not.

Now we hate to be the bearers of bad news but it’s seems that the whole ‘1984’ thing is a massive hoax, according to KP’s label Universal anyway. Continue reading Katy Perry’s manager says she hasn’t recorded a shady T-Swizzle track. Boo, we kind of wanted a musical catfight.

Are you Catastrophe, Mother Chucker or maybe even Arsyn? Find out your ‘Bad Blood’ video character in our quiz.

Now we’ve all had time to calm tf down after Taylor Swift’s super sassy, super sexy ‘Bad Blood’ music video, we’ve realised that we identify with quite a few of characters (is that a good thing?)

Anyway, we wanted to know who we were most like so thought we’d make a quiz for you to take to see who YOU’RE most like. *prays for Catastrophe*

One Dizzle smash Billboard’s money-makers list – they’re rolling in the $$$.

It comes as no surprise to us that the 1D lads are pretty flush when it comes to money. Their ‘Where We Are’ tour was the highest grossing tour of 2014 raking in $290 million (that’s £195 million to us British folks) from ticket sales of their six month tour. Combine that with record sales, merchandise and sponsorship deals like the Toyota commercial and they’re rolling in the moneys.
