  You have to give a girl props for trying. Having previously declared, ‘I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women,’ during her Woman of the Year acceptance speech in 2012, Katy Perry has now decided she is one, minus the actual meaning of the word. Host Karl Stefanovic…

The 2013 American Music Awards took place on Sunday night, Lady Gaga arrived on a horse, Miley Cyrus wore clothes and Katy Perry, who performed her new song, ‘Unconditional,’ has now been labelled a racist.

Packed with even more punch, sass and mischief than last time around, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (that’s Katy Perry to you) is back, coming to crash a slumber party near you.
