Pop star Katy Perry recently showed off her new green hair on her Instagram account, calling it “slime green.” We can’t decide if the color of slime is a good or bad thing! She shared the above photo with her followers, saying,
“SLIME GREEN FOR SPRING by my bb’s @neeenaboo& @brantmayfield at the @mcmillansalon”
We think it’s pretty cool that she isn’t afraid to try something new, even if it is slime green hair! What do you think about Katy Perry‘s new look for the Spring? Is it something you would ever try? Take our poll and tell us in the comments!

The stars have been dancing their hearts out (and their feet off!) with pro dancers on national television for almost a month now. The much anticipated (and dreaded!) SWITCH-UP finally got here, and it was intense to say the least! Some contestants were happy with their new dancing partners while others were somewhat horrified! Let’s see how everyone did below, and who their new partners are!
Meryl Davis and Val Chmerkovskiy danced a tango for a score of 39 out of 40
Nene Leakes and Derek Hough danced jazz to Beyoncé’s “Grown Woman” for 32 of 40
Cody Simpson and Sharna Burgess danced the foxtrot (and sang!) for 31 of 40
Amy Purdy and Mark Ballas danced salsa for 34 out of 40
Charlie White and Peta Murgatroyd danced the rumba for 34 of 40
Danica McKenna and Maks Chmerkovskiy danced jive for 32 of 40
Drew Carey and Witney Carson danced the cha cha for 33 of 40
James Maslow and Cheryl Burke danced a tango for 35 of 40
Candace Cameron Bure and Tony Dovolani danced the quickstep for 28 of 40
That puts Meryl in the lead and Candace in last place for this episode! We can’t wait to see how next week turns out when the stars go back to their original dance partners, and see who gets the axe next.
What did you think about the switches on this week’s episode of DWTS? Who was your favorite?

Miley Cyrus is gracing the cover of “Elle” magazine next month in a mega sparkly grey, gold and ivory ensemble! The pearly outfit is a Marc Jacobs sequined pants suit from his Fall/Winter 2014/2015 Collection and looks great on her. The May issue of “Elle” is dedicated to women who are making music history, so it makes total sense to see Miley on the cover! Miley shared the very first look of the magazine cover above with her friends and followers on Twitter along with a ton of silly emoji, saying,
“#ElleYeah @ELLEmagazine @MarcJacobsIntl I <3 MJ”
We can’t wait to see what else the May issue of Elle has in store, what other women in music will be on their pages and how they will be celebrated talented female artists! Congrats on the magazine cover feature, Miley!
Who else do you hope to see in the May “women in music” issue of “Elle” magazine? Do you like Miley Cyrus’s Marc Jacobs cover outfit?

In addition to preparing for her debut album, Bella is getting ready to release the first novel in her book series, “Autumn Falls,” available this Fall! (You can pre-order it now, though!) She’s also busy posing for Candie’s Brand!

When we know we are going to spend a day traveling, whether it be by plane, train, bus or car, we always dress down in our comfiest clothes. That’s probably because we aren’t being photographed the moment we get off the plane! Celebs don’t have the same luxury as us, though, and Debby Ryan proved fashionable while traveling this past Sunday, March 30th! Debby wore a super cute outfit (heels included!) as she walked through LAX Airport in Los Angeles, California on her way to Texas. What do you think about Debby Ryan‘s travel outfit?
