In case you spend most of your time in a cave, with your fingers in your ears going, "La, la, la, la," the iPhone 6 was released today to much fanfare, and many tech geeks spending hours in line so that they can tweet about how much Apple sucks on a slightly bigger screen.

Because while people are all psyched about the specs on the new phones, they're equally pissed about the fact that Apple violated the sanctity of millions of iTunes accounts by forcing a new U2 album on an unsuspecting populace.

Katy Perry poked fun (we hope) at the baffling decision to cram free "music" down our throats with a tweet she posted last night:

  • Katy Perry in Cosmo 2014
  • Apple iPhone 6

"FYI to all iPhone 6 buyers, there will also be a free selfie of me already in ur photo roll."

While that would certainly be weird, it would be far less objectionable than finding out that the latest politically-charged howlings of a rapidly aging Irishman are now taking up your valuable storage space. When will the world learn that no means no Bono?

The cover girl for the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, Ms. Katy Perry, says that among her many talents is the ability to bounce back from a breakup like a boss.

She means with men, of course, but that should serve her well in the current Taylor Swift-Katy Perry feud. No sense in wasting time on the past, is there?

"What I've learned is that if you don't have the foundation of self-love first, you really have nowhere to pull love from to give it away," the 29-year-old says.

"I had to learn about taking care of myself before I could take care of others. I want to mommy everyone. I want to take care of them. I want to save them."

"I forget myself in the meantime. I learned that through therapy."

Characterizing herself as "open," Perry says she has "less time for bulls--t" these days, and in partners, "I look for the same characteristics: a sense of humor."

"Someone who makes me laugh off the charts ... someone who is sensitive, someone who loves and understands music, and who is really smart."

As previously detailed, it is totally on between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

The "Shake It Off" singer took her feud public with Perry an unnamed artist when she told Rolling Stone that she penned a new song titled "Bad Blood" about a singer who tried to "sabotage" a recent arena tour of hers.

Perry then pretty much confirmed herself as the target of Swift's wrath when she Tweeted about a "Regina George in sheep's clothing" soon after Taylor's remarks went viral.

Amazing Mean Girls reference aside, what is the basis for this beef between pop superstars?

According to TMZ, it boils down to three backup dancers who worked for Perry first... then joined Swift’s tour in 2012... then left Swift's tour once Katy went back on the road.

It's sort of official: there's serious bad blood brewing between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

It all started when Swift told Rolling Stone that she penned a song on hew new album about an enemy in the world of music, someone who did “something so horrible” when she tried to “sabotage an entire arena tour."

Then, not long after these comments went public, Perry Tweeted a reference to Mean Girls and a "Regina George in sheep's clothing," who we're rather positive is Taylor Swift.

So the claws are pretty much out between two of the top-selling artists in pop music history.

Will things get uglier from here? Who will fire the next shot? And where does this feud rank among recent famous rivalries, which include Drake Bell HATING on Justin Bieber and Jimmy Kimmel trading barbs with Kanye West?

Flip around and decide now:

Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift wrote a song titled "Bad Blood" about an enemy in the music business. We're pretty sure the subject was Katy Perry.

Yesterday, Rolling Stone released excerpts from an interview in which Taylor Swift admitted her song "Bad Blood" was written about a musical rival.

The Internet instantly set about speculating as to who Taylor could've been so upset with (aside from her many ex-boyfriends) that she devoted an entire track of her forthcoming album to talking trash.

Taylor's quotes were picked apart for clues, and her history was examined by fans hoping to piece together the identity of her professional rival. Turns out the answer may have been under our noses and on our Twitter feeds all the while:

  • Taylor Swift at 2014 VMAs
  • Katy Perry: Sexy on Instagram!

Just hours after Taylor's quote went public, Katy Perry tweeted, "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing," a reference to the villainous manipulator from the 2004 film Mean Girls.

We'd say it might just be a coincidence, but there's far more evidence that Katy is the latest celeb to be the subject of one of Taylor's famous musical burns:

Back in 2001, Katy Perry wasn't even Katy Perry.

She was Katy Hudson, a fresh-faced, teenage Christian rock singer with some big musical dreams but little resemblance to the woman now known worldwide.

At that time, cameraman Jim Standridge had the chance to spend time with Katy while filming electronic press materials for her then-record company.

One which he just now unearthed. Take a look:

“Everyone thinks I’m like a superstar … but that’s not how I am at all. I’m just some little kid from California who plays the guitar and sings,” Hudson says.

It's hard to believe that this innocent girl would one day produce five No. 1 singles on one album and become one of the driving forces in popular music.

The footage, edited down from 90 minutes to just under 13, shows the 17-year-old "pizza face" playing with her hair, performing before a small crowd.

Odd behavior is sort of a hallmark of being famous. We've come to expect some celebrities to pull ridiculous stunts in the name of art or self-promotion.

When Shia LaBeouf wears a paper bag on his head, we tip our heads to the side and tap our chins and go "hmmm..." and wait for answers.

When James Franco hits on an 18 year old on Instagram, we accuse him of being a dirty old man and then realize that's exactly what happens in his newest flick, label it a publicity stunt, and move on to the next scandal.

But then there are our pop stars and the Twitter users who love and loathe them who ask questions that really make us think ..

Why Does Lady Gaga Look Like a Hash Brown?
Good question, @luisspears. Very good question indeed.

Too bad the only answers we can really come up with for these 23 questions for pop stars which cannot actually be answered are "because" and "drugs, of course."

But there's really no way to explain Miley Cyrus' right knee.

While most of the results of the 2014 Emmy Awards were fairly predictable, there was a twist at the after parties that we definitely didn't see coming:

Katy Perry and Diplo stepped out as a couple - informally announcing to the celebrity world that they've reconciled.

This isn't the first time that we've heard rumors that Katy and Diplo are back together (the couple separated back in May), but the news is particularly astonishing this time around, because it comes directly on the heels of Katy's supposed reconciliation with a different ex.

Yes, Katy and Riff Raff announced that they're "in love" at the VMAs, and while they may have been joking (we hope), they also sported matching denim outfits and left in a limo together:

Back in March we told you about the possibility that Katy Perry and Riff Raff are dating

The rumors seemed too terrible to be true, and thankfully it began to look as though Katy came to her senses and dropped the redneck rapper like a bad habit.

Katy hooked up with Robert Pattinson and a slew of other dudes who are far more worthy of her hotness, and all seemed right with the world.

Sadly, at the 2014 Video Music Awards last night Katy and Riff hinted strongly that they're a couple. In fact, they pretty much stopped just short of getting engaged in front of the paparazzi:

Yes, it looks as though Riff-Kat is officially a thing. Check them out in the video above rocking matching denim monstrosities and talking about making babies together.

The sight of Katy Perry in a bikini is one of the things that makes us thankful to live in a time when Instagram exists. 

KP has been rewarding her followers with scantily-clad selfies all summer, but today she upped her game and posted a video featuring her awesome boobs in motion!

Sure, it's not as great as the legendary Katy Perry wardrobe malfunction that earned her a season pass to a SoCal water park, but it's still a welcome change of pace from the constant barrage of celebrities dumping ice on their heads. (We get it, guys. Can you skip the video part and just make a donation?)

No word as to the identity of the dudes in the video, but given the intense focus on Katy's love life, we're sure there will be rumors that she's dated each of them by the end of today.
