Katy Perry is known for her wild child style.
And on Friday evening at her concert in Brooklyn, New York, the 29-year-old lived up to her reputation with a colourful and eye-catching ensemble, reminiscent of a night sky lit up with fireworks.
The Firework singer posed backstage with local teachers and students, who were set to visit with the star through her collaboration with office supply store chain, Staples.
Baby, you're a firework: Katy Perry, 29, showed off her voluptuous curves in a plunging blue bustier, covered in shimmering rhinestones and with a red, orange, yellow and pink starburst design exploding from the center
She paired the sexy top with a pair of loose bright blue glittering trousers.
The raven-haired beauty wore her shoulder-length tresses down in loose waves, highlighted her blue eyes with over-the-top fake eyelashes, and added bright pink lipstick that brought out the fuchsia tones of her bustier.
Earlier in the day, the Last Friday Night artist tweeted about her excitement, stating: 'Brooklyn. Gonna leave it all on the floor tonight. Recover later. Get ready'.

The first show from her tour at Barclays Center, on Thursday night, saw Katy taking selfies with fans.
The pop singer performed to a packed crowd, wearing an array of colourful costumes and wigs, as she took her world tour to New York.
At one point the I Kissed A Girl hitmaker sat down and posed for a photo with a gaggle of excited supporters in the front row.
Say cheese! Katy Perry takes a moment to pose with fans and take selfies during her performance on stage on Thursday at the Barclays Center in New York
What a show! The singer delighted the crowd with an array of bright outfits and different wigs
Purr-fect! The songstress pulled on a catsuit, complete with kitty ears, during another segment
Katy performed a selection of her hits old as well as new, including California Gurls, Wide Awake and Part Of Me.
On Thursday morning she posted a photo on Instagram showing her outside the Brooklyn based performance venue and standing next to her bike, wearing casual clothes.
She accompanied the snap with the caption: 'Squad 2 Barclays! Gonna shut it down tahnight (sic)!!!'
Katy finished off with the hashtag 'ThisIsHowWeDo,' a reference to her song from her fourth studio album Prism.
Regal: Katy channels a new age Cleopatra look as she is carried aloft by two hunky dancers
Luminous: She kicked off the American leg of her Prismatic World Tour last month
The song will be the fifth single release from the LP and will start getting radio airplay from Monday.
Katy is currently romancing with on-off boyfriend Diplo, a 35-year-old DJ and producer.
It comes following her split from John Mayer earlier this year. She was formerly married to British comedian Russell Brand, but the marriage lasted barely a year.
Her Prismatic World Tour kicked off in the UK in May, where she performed 17 dates up and down the country.
Job done: Katy was pictured leaving the venue in a car afterwards and stopped to sign autographs for fans
Ready to rumble: Katy shared this Instagram picture earlier in the day outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn where she will perform again on Friday night
The American leg of the tour started last month in North Carolina; she did one performance in New York earlier this month in NYC's Madison Square Garden.
Boston will be the next stop on her neon-party concert tour.
She'll then travel to Australia in November once she has finished her North American dates, while the final leg will be in Europe early next year - the last date on March 22 in Stockholm, Sweden.
The ex factor: Katy's former flame John Mayer was meanwhile spotted grocery shopping in Beverly Hills
Much like a quote that was recently used to describe their beloved Beyonce and her husband Jay Z, Kid Fury and Crissle are individually impressive, but unstoppable together. Collectively known for their side-splitting podcast The Read, this duo has garnered a healthy social following by simply being their shady selves.
Now Kid Fury and Crissle are going to make like Iyanla and fix our social media lives. Tackling trends from selfies to Throwback Thursday, we fittingly tapped these two for tips on how to maintain some Internet couth and keep your followers from chucking the deuce.
It's a slow night, let's make up a new list of do's and don'ts for ONTD!
Piper Perabo's wedding dress is certainly "something new."
The Covert Affairs actress wore a unique, textured metallic gown to tie the knot with director-producer Stephen Kay on Saturday in New York City.
This is the first marriage for both.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds headed to a nearby reception with a New Orleans-style band in tow.
The Following is approaching season three like a reset.
The Hall H crowd was treated to an alternate ending for the season-two finale, which saw Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) fatally shot by Mark Gray (Sam Underwood). The ending would have had larger implications for the new season, but creator Kevin Williamson insisted that things wouldn't change that much had Joe died or stayed alive, which the producers decided to go with. Plus, he wanted to keep the Joe Carroll thread dangling.
"It was an opportunity to open up a new chapter in his life," said Kevin Bacon of Ryan Hardy's new arc. "Losing James Purefoy and Joe Carroll would've been tough. ... The door is open now," added Shawn Ashmore, who noted that had Joe been killed off, his presence would have still been felt for the rest of the show. Sam Underwood, who returns in an "unexpected" way, said that the ending "was going to be provocative either way."
When The Following kicks back up again in early 2015, a year has passed and Ryan finds himself in a happier place and in a brand-new relationship with a doctor, Gwen."We're living together and she has a daughter," Bacon said. "I'm actually trying to experience some domesticity. Along with the inner struggle to pull [Ryan] together, he's also taking on a giant adjustment being a dad."
Mike and Ryan will be working with each other in the season-three premiere going through numerous cases to make sure all ties to Joe Carroll are gone, but new showrunner Jennifer Johnson revealed that "a brand new threat for New York" will present itself, which throws the city into "urban paranoia" and "disintegration" of the city. "The characters' home lives will be a microcosm of that," she said, adding that in the opener Ryan will request a task force.
Johnson added that "we will challenge that [happiness] episode after episode. Can he hold on to the happiness that he has found?" She also hinted that there will be a "bigger, badder villain" who will be going up against Ryan Hardy — though it will be difficult to tell who it is from the onset.
Johnson teased that the show will go back to its first season, promising that it will be more of a "psychological mystery"— "a little more Hitchcockian, a little more of what you don't see.""We're going to throw the title on its head," she said.
-- Siega stands up for Johnson's dark side, but says that you don't have to see all the killing for the show to be effective.
-- Does Mike's new dark side make him potentially manipulatable? The writers imply the moderator has read their mind. Siega jokes that Mike kills Max in Episode 1. Stroup insists this is not true. We're jumping ahead a year. "I don't think these two will ever have an easy relationship," Ashmore says of Max and Mike. "I think what's gonna be interesting about it is traversing that and I don't think it's gonna be easy," he adds. Stroup calls Max "a woman of now," calling her strong and capable. Stroup says that she started with Max having morals and being very centered, but now she's seen things from Mike and from Ryan.
-- Moment of silence for Emma. Sniffle. But where will we find Sam Underwood next year? "In the most unexpected place," Johnson says, telling people that he "will be hiding in plain sight and he will have transformed himself." Well, OK. Is Underwood looking forward to doing scenes with actors present? He's looking forward to acting with other characters, but notes that there were actors with him when he was acting opposite himself.
-- Poor Emma. "It was really hard, because I loved that character so much. I loved Emma from Day 1," Williamson says. "I didn't want to kill her, but I knew it was her time," he says. Bah. "You just have to say good-bye to some characters you love," Williamson says. He adds that they brought Claire back just to kill Emma, basically. And will Claire be back? Williamson squirms.
-- "Ryan has learned so much over the past two seasons," Johnson says. He's learned the dangers of breaking the law and he's led Mike down a dark path. So this season will be about whether or not Ryan has learned anything. "He's going to fight the fight the hard way," Johnson says. Johnson adds that we'll go home with our characters more, that it'll have a soap-style angle with more characters and relationships. "And people will die and asses will be kicked," Bacon promise."We're going to see two couples at very different points in their lives," Johnson says, but she notes that Max and Mike will have been apart for a couple months when we pick up, for some reason. But Stroup says that she wants to fight more this season. "Whenever possible, she was kicking ass," Williamson says.
-- Siega references the DC Sniper as a comparison for the urban paranoia of Season 3. Williamson says that The Mystery Man in The Car from the finale wasn't necessarily meant as a cliffhanger. "I didn't expect it to be The Thing," Siega says. So who do they think it is? "I thought it was Sprague [Grayden], she was the newscaster," Stroup says. "I don't think it was anybody we've seen," Ashmore says. "I thought it was Claire's son Joey," Bacon jokes. "I wanted it to be Keith Carradine," Underwood says of Ryan's AA sponsor. But Williamson says it was a character we haven't met before. So much for your theories, Internet! Speaking of Sprague Grayden, Williamson doesn't know if she'll fit into this chapter.
-- Dr. Strauss mentioned that Joe Carroll wasn't his best student. "Oh, you're paying attention," Williamson says. But the other producers agree that will or won't be important. And will they continue to cast British villains? "We love playing villains," Underwood says. The crowd yells a few names for potential villains.
-- A questioner asks if by asking Kevin Bacon a question, she has a Six Degrees score of "one.""Technically, you're really supposed to be in a movie with me. But I've got an idea: If I make a movie with all of us..." Kevin says. He stands up and films himself with the whole crowd. So now we've all been in a movie with Kevin Bacon. Her question is actually for Kevin Williamson, about whether studios are scared to refuse him thing because of his twisted mind. "You won't believe this, but I'm squeamish as the sight of blood. I'm kinda scaredy-cat," Williamson. "People tell me 'No' all the time," Williamson says. "He's more 'Dawson's Creek' than 'The Following,'" Siega agrees. Williamson says he goes for emotion. "That's what I love about horror. That's what I love about the genre. That's why I live in it, because I want to feel it," Williamson says. Have any scenes gone too far? He admits he sometimes forgets he's on network, but says that FOX has been "lovely." What is the show's blood budget? "Blood's fairly cheap," Williamson cracks. "The show's meant to be scary and shocking and full of twists," Williamson says.
-- What was the most messed up part of Season 2 for everybody? "I've never danced with a corpse before, so that was pretty messed up," Underwood says. Siega thought the subway sequence was most messed up. Kevins Bacon and Williamson loved the finale. Johnson also loved the finale. Siega backtracks and says that Ryan and Joe working together was his favorite part. Ashmore liked the satisfaction of killing Lily Gray, celebrating the darkness. "I really liked getting to shoot one of the twins. That was a fun moment for me," Stroup says.
-- Does Sam Underwood think Mark will have different personalities now that Luke is dead? "That sounds fascinating," Underwood says. He didn't know he was auditioning for twins when he went in. Williamson explains that he was originally instructed to play the character as somebody with multiple-personalities. "I do think that Luke's death is going to affect Mark in an incredibly dramatic way, for better or for worse," Underwood says."I think you'll be happy with how it all lands," Williamson promises.
-- What was Shawn thinking when Mike's father was killed? "It was a difficult scene, obviously. It's really emotional," Ashmore says. He never actually met the actor playing his father and he was watching a monitor with a green-screen.
-- Last question: A fan has loved Kevin Bacon ever since "Crazy Stupid Love." Yes. Since 2011's "Crazy Stupid Love.""Thank you for loving me for such a long time. I guarantee you that I have socks that are older than you. But time is relative," Bacon cracks. He tells her that he doesn't view characters as good guys or bad guys. The show came along when he'd been doing a lot of villains on the movie side of things, so he was interested in being on the right side of right-and-wrong, but he wanted Ryan to have flaws.

Werk! Supermodel Karlie Kloss—and Taylor Swift's BFF and favorite workout buddy—revealed to Style.com how she keeps her famous bod lean and fit, and unlike her bestie Swift, Kloss added she prefers to head home after the gym to get ready!
"I like to exercise and get moving first thing in the morning," the Victoria's Secret stunner, who is the new face of Nike, told the site. "It's so important to change up your workout routine, so I like to take a range of classes," Kloss adds, who does everything from SoulCycle, Pilates, ballet, running and workouts with trainer Justin Gelband and Swift at ModelFit gym in New York City.
"I'm not a great runner, but I'm getting better! It's such a great way to break a sweat," the 21-year-old goes on to say, adding, "As much as I love to take cycling classes for my cardio workout, I always tend to be one beat off of the rest of the class and the instructor usually calls me out on it in front of everyone!"
PHOTOS: Taylor's many celeb BFFs
Despite having a seriously svelte physique, the model admits she has trouble spots. "I personally find it difficult to tone my inner leg muscles," she revealed, adding she focuses on doing strength training and Pilates to target the area.
As for her killer abs? Kloss credits "good-old fashion sit-ups—It's something you don't need any equipment or trainer for and you can do anytime."
After sweating it out "consistently four to five days every week," Kloss isn't like her BFF Swift, who spends reportedly an hour getting ready post-workout to look like perfection exiting the gym. "I don’t have a gym bag. I usually just grab my vinyl coin purse and go … I like to head home if I can to shower and get ready for the day."

DC bested Marvel at Comic-Con with its film presentation Saturday — at least when it came to early online buzz. The first look at Warner Bros. and DC’s “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” edged out Marvel’s “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” generating 112,108 overall mentions and 8,356 intent-to-view mentions, or 7%, according to research group Way to Blue.
“Age of Ultron” received 62,542 overall mentions, but a higher intent-to-see response, with 8,483, or 14%. What helped WB and DC was the surprise appearance of Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, who play Batman and Superman, respectively, along with the first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in the film.
When it comes to studio buzz, Warner Bros. again dominated Saturday at Comic-Con with 45% of the conversation. But the company was also aided not only by its bigscreen superheroes but also its shows on TV presenting in San Diego on Saturday, including “Arrow” and “The Vampire Diaries.”
But Disney was close behind with 23%, as Marvel brought the “Age of Ultron” and “Ant-Man” casts to Comic-Con, and announced “Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” with James Gunn again writing and directing. Its Saturday panel generated 97,887 mentions.

Who do you think won this year's Comic-Con, ONTD?
The trajectories Carver said that Sam must figure out "how to rescue his brother from being a demon" while Demon Dean "struggles to figure out who the real monster is."
Impala rights"Demon Dean gets the car, but unfortunately Demon Dean doesn't care as much about the car as regular Dean does," Ackles said.
Dean bondage! Ackles explained that Demon Dean is different because he's not just a "meat suit" being possessed. "This is Dean's soul, but it's twisted," he said. But was it easier to direct himself as Dean or Demon Dean? "[In the first episode], Demon Dean was easier because he's tied up most of the time," he said.
Castiel's priorities"Castiel's grace is fading," Collins said. "He's getting weaker and a lot less fun, but early on the season the most important thing for Castiel ... is to get Dean patched up more than recovering his own powers."
Crowley's dilemma "No one's ever going to believe that Crowley didn't know what was going to happen," Sheppard said. "We'll see if Crowley has any control at all or if he's in charge." Ackles added, "At some point Crowley is going to say, 'This was a bad, bad idea.'"
200th episode Carver described the landmark episode in November as "musical-ish" and a "love letter to the fans."
Demon Dean sings!"Technically in the season opener there's singing and music involved ... and a little rump-shaking," Ackles said. Apparently Demon Dean likes to karaoke... or does he? I just don't know anymore.
Isn't it bromantic? Ackles addressed why Dean always seems to have fun bromances with Castiel, Crowley, etc.: "Everybody wants a piece of Dean. He's just the guy to have around in a jam." "Or if you want to jam," Collins said. Ackles added, "I don't know why the bromancing or the romancing of ladies always falls into Dean's court." Padalecki had his own theory. "[In the pilot], it was set up that Sam always wanted to be a homebody, and Dean was Han Solo, a swashbuckler... it still echoes in our current season. Dean has more relationships outside of Sam than Sam does [with Dean].
Kevin returns (sort of) Kevin Tran (Osric Chau) makes a surprise appearance at the panel as a fan who asks Carver when Kevin will ever return, but it seems that he'll remain dead for now.
Deadly Demon Dean Ackles revealed that in this week alone on set, Demon Dean beat up at least three different guys and killed at least two.
It’s not enough that Chris Meloni has the best butt on television. The former Law and Order: SVU star wants us to know he’s pretty blessed in the front of his pants, too.
This week Meloni posted the photo below on Facebook, along with a caption reading, “I will stare at your genitalia until u feed me…. #dogpsychology.” Y’know that’s exactly what we said when we saw this picture.
And somewhere Jon Hamm is crying himself to sleep.
helloooo Mr Gusoh @ the VC Andrews stuff with Adlyn and Wade, and lmao @ Bill sticking it to the man, literally with that executive, and hell hath no fury like

Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot was not to be represented at ComicCon this weekend, so no one was suspecting a photo to leak from the thus far compeltely locked down production.
Much like how we saw raptors from Jurassic World, a random Twitter account, this time one called @justifiedfilms (don't even try, the account is long gone now), posted the alleged leaked image.
It doesn't look like the owner of the Twitter account is actually working on the film, but is part of Louisiana's film production circle, so this is probably a reference bust (for a CGI thing) one of his friends photographed.
I like the look, but - dearest crew members - social media is not your friend. Hope everyone keeps their job over the weekend.
(PS. Is he grey?)
It looks like it's still going strong between Susan Sarandon and her 37-year-old boyfriend Jonathan Bricklin.
The actress, 67, and her younger beau were seen enjoying a spot of shopping in the Soho district of New York on Saturday.
Looking content on the leisurely stroll, Tammy star Sarandon was clad casually in a white linen top over black relaxed-fit jeans.
How much younger would you date ontd?
Scott Caan and girlfriend Kacy Byxbee welcomed their first child together earlier this month—and they have a girl!
Daughter Josie James (a nod to granddad James Caan, it sounds like) was born July 9, a source exclusively confirms to E! News.
Caan, 37, and Byxbee have been dating for at least a few years since meeting on the set of Hawaii Five-0.
Redressed and feeling decidedly more rumpled, I met my body guard at the door, handed him my "gym bag," and got ready to face the paparazzi (cough, ELLE.com photographer, Katie Friedman, cough). I exited with confidence and returned to my waiting SUV.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Veep star Reid Scott will appear on the Fox comedy for its upcoming fourth season,
News of Scott's addition goes hand-in-hand with Jessica Biel's gig on the Sept. 16 season premiere. He'll play Ted, the charming man who inspires some not-so-friendly competition between Jess and Kat (Biel), "the hottest scientist in the world."
In addition to his role as Dan Egan on Veep, Reid has several films on deck — including Nancy Meyers' The Intern, which recently started filming in New York.
He and Biel will tape their New Girl appearances during the first week of August, when the 20th Century Fox TV series starts production.
Q: Will we see Oliver have a challenge in being truthful and honest with [Felicity], or is that part of their attraction, that he can’t be honest and truthful with her?

Look who just got cast for the Frozen arc on Once Upon A Time!
Tyler Jacob Moore, who stars on Shameless as Tony Markovich, will head to Storybrooke on the ABC show as Prince Hans and will make his first appearance in the third episode of the upcoming season, EOnline reports.
Also joining the Frozen family is John Rhys-Davies as the best troll ever, Pabbie!
“We’re thrilled to welcome John Rhys-Davies to the #OnceUponATime family as the voice of everyone’s favorite rock troll — Pabbie! #ThisFall!” executive producer Adam Horowitz announced the news on Twitter.
Marvel Studios seized the day at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Between prop shots, incidental (but important) story and character details, first glimpses of footage from The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, the casts of both films showing up in force, and news about a third 2018 release, Marvel gave DC a run for their money. Maybe none of this is especially surprising, given that their lifeblood flows from the pages of comics, but the breadth of fan-service Marvel provided in Hall H and beyond was impressive nonetheless.
Coming on the tail end of festivities is an update on one of their decidedly more small scale enterprises: the impending serialized reboot of Daredevil, backed by Netflix for their Instant streaming service. Most of the broad details about the show are well known – its troupe of actors is in place (ranging wide and varied, from Charlie Cox, to Vincent D’Onofrio, to Rosario Dawson, among others), showrunner Steve S. DeKnight has his hands on the reigns following Drew Godard’s departure, and despite the fits and starts, the New York City based production is well on track.
What hasn’t been transmitted yet is a premiere date, or at least something more concrete (and much less narrow) than “sometime in 2015″. No longer, though: at the very last Marvel press event of the weekend, Daredevil will hit Netflix starting in May 2015. The precise day of availability didn’t come up, but knowing the month is a lot better than not knowing. If nothing else, it gives us a clearer idea of when to expect the revitalized adventures of Matt Murdock to begin anew.
Speaking at the panel, Joe Quesada – Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer – pirouetted around questions about interactions between Daredevil and the other street level superheroes (Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones); he only went so far as to express his excitement at the thought of these four characters teaming up for Marvel’s planned Defenders miniseries – also touching base briefly on Daredevil‘s NYC backdrop. Sounds like he had a lot to say about the nuts and bolts of the show, but little and less that actually ties back to new details on what to expect from it.
Maybe that’s okay, though; just having a time frame for when Daredevil will be in the can and ready to go is pretty exciting, especially given how much emphasis Marvel is putting on their bevy of hush-hush future projects. The effort they’re putting into their theatrical endeavors is striking enough on its own, so much so that it’s easy to forget about their ventures into uncharted waters by streaming original content. Official word on their fledgling attempt at bringing their brand to new platforms might seem slight, but it’s a reminder of the studio’s expanding ambitions.
With about ten months left until Daredevil vaults its way onto our Instant recommendations pages, and with filming just beginning to get underway, there’s not much else that Marvel possibly could offer to satiate fan anticipation. But now there’s an end goal in sight, and that beats being left in the dark.
Netflix's Daredevil will star Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D'Onofrio as the Kingpin, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Rosario Dawson and Peter Shinkoda in unnamed roles (Elektra and Stick or Bullseye, anyone?)
Daredevil will become available on Netflix Instant in May 2015.
Yay, I can't wait!
