We learn in Katy Perry’s Paper interview with Marie Lodi that she and boyfriend Orlando Bloom are so serious that they are in the “throwing out each other’s belongings without asking” phase of their relationship.
Explaining that they are both hoarders by nature, Orlando Bloom wanted to keep his old toiletry bag because it has been around the world for 10 years, even when Perry presented him with a new one for Christmas. Perry is equally bad at hoarding, especially in the clothing category.
“I have all of them,” Perry said about her old costumes and iconic looks that she’s worn over her career, like her cupcake bras. “I have my costumes, my dancers’ costumes, all of my tour sets. My whipped-cream gun.” All her memorabilia reside in a warehouse.

@emrata, as she is known on the social media platform where she is followed by 19 million people, is more than conversant in how to wield the tool of the 'Gram. "I think of my Instagram as a magazine," she says, adding, when asked about what sort of magazine it would be, "It's a sexy feminist magazine." When asked if she feels her Instagram account espouses the full narrative of @emrata-hood, she gives the answer that should be obvious to all: "Of course not. I mean, does anybody's?" She continues, "I am not going to shout from the rooftops that I am smart on a visual platform."
