Agent Bedhead has been covering a lot of Katy Perry news lately, but sometimes I like to dip my toe in just because Katy has become one of those “WTF?” celebrities. As in, WTF is she doing? WTF is she wearing? These are photos of Katy at last night’s Echo Awards in Germany. Lana del Rey was there. Yeah. Lana and Katy were buddy-buddy on the red carpet too. That says something, to me at least. Anyway, I absolutely loathe Katy’s current blue hair, and I don’t get why she feels the need to do these Flinstones-inspired hairstyles. As for Katy’s Paco Rabanne dress… um… okay. It’s, like, made of mirrored plates contouring her body. Like she’s the embodiment of a disco ball.
In other Katy Perry news, can you believe that people are still trying to convince us that Katy and model Baptiste Giabiconi are a thing? And please, don’t yell at me. I know all male models aren’t gay. I know that you can’t just look at someone and know that they’re gay. But this boy is totally gay. Still, we’re being sold this romance:
Katy Perry’s new romance with French model and musician Baptiste Giabiconi is heating up, and he’s thinking about a move to Los Angeles to be closer to the singer.
“He’s considering moving to LA, at least for some time,” a rep for Giabiconi, who is signed to DNA Model Management and is also a singer, confirmed to Page Six. “He’s really focusing on his music career from France, but he’s always traveling for his modeling career.”
The rep added that Giabiconi’s relationship with Perry is still in its early days: “It’s new, they’re feeling it out, but they’re spending a lot of time together.”
Perry was married to British comedian Russell Brand for 18 months, until he filed for divorce in December. Their divorce will be finalized in July. Last year, Giabiconi shared his feelings to a reporter about then-married Perry, telling fashion magazine Dansk, “If I could make her divorce her husband, I’d marry her.”
Well-groomed Giabiconi is a “far cry” from the scruffy, shaggy-haired Brand, we’re told.
“When it comes to having a real-hot man to escort her around, you can’t go wrong with Baptiste Giabiconi,” his rep quipped.
Perry and Giabiconi have been spotted together in Paris nightclubs this week, where they were described as “cute,” smiling and laughing together. “Katy looked really happy and in a good place,” a friend told us.
The new couple was photographed cuddling aboard the Eurostar train from London and disembarking in Paris, looking content.
Perry and Giabiconi sat together in the front row at the fall/winter 2012 Chanel runway show in Paris earlier this month. But Perry’s rep told us she “does not comment on Katy’s personal life.”
Giabiconi is a face of Chanel and has been described by Karl Lagerfeld as “a boy version of Gisele Bündchen: skinny, skinny but with an athletic body — good for clothes and great with no clothes.” Perry clearly agrees.

There’s just so much information packed into that story, right? Of course he’s the “boy version of Gisele” – they both have slim hips and both are sexually attracted to Tom Brady. And, “When it comes to having a real-hot man to escort her around, you can’t go wrong with Baptiste Giabiconi” – the operative word being “escort”. So it’s obvious to me that Baptiste’s rep is really trying to make this happen in a big way – perhaps to get Baptiste more exposure in America, and more work internationally? But why is Katy going along with it?
Maybe she’s not. Us Weekly reports that Katy and Baptiste traveled together from London to Paris earlier this week on the Eurostar (the train), but an “observer” says that they just looked like friends, not lovers: “They were all chatting away like best friends – looking at magazines, looking out the window, just relaxing. They just looked like two people traveling with a group of friends.” So maybe Katy just found her new gay BFF?
