Katy Perry made it like your "Birthday" at Sunday's 2014 Billboard Music Awards, even if she couldn't be there in person because she's touring abroad.

Performing live via satellite from Newcastle Metro Radio Arena in England, she put on a neon-packed rendition of her latest single for the Las Vegas crowd:

Sporting a neon pink raincoat and a neon green wig, Katy was assisted on the catwalk by backup dancers ... also decked out in neon costumes and wigs.

At one point, a lucky girl in the crowd holding a birthday poster caught her eye, and Katy brought her up on stage and put her in a decorated throne.

The "Birthday" throne, of course, turned into a spinning birthday cake surrounded by athletic men in birthday-themed suits showing off their acrobatic moves.

It was a Katy Perry concert, after all.

The pop star also took a selfie with the "Birthday" girl in what turned out to be a pretty fun and visually stunning look at the pop star’s Prismatic World Tour.

Watch it for yourself above and check out other memorable performances and video moments from the 2014 Billboard Music Awards after the jump!

Lady Gaga appears to believe Katy Perry is aping her ideas by donning green hair and riding on horses on tour, and took to Twitter to take a shot at her.

The Mother Monster tweeted to her fans: "It looks like green hair and mechanical horses are the thing now," along with the emoji of a pair of googly eyes.

Katy Perry kicked off her world tour at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland, riding around on a mechanical horse and sporting green hair.

Gaga, who has been vocal about being kind online, made quite the entrance at the American Music Awards when she arrived on a giant, fake white horse.

The ARTPOP diva also has neon green hair now, for whatever that's worth.

Katy Perry and Rihanna are the sort of showbiz BFFs who seem to only hang out at awards shows, but even though they may not have regular slumber parties, that doesn't mean it's okay for either of them to go palling around with the other's exes.

At least that's the message Katy has reportedly delivered to RiRi after learning of plans for a John Mayer/Rihanna collaboration.

Katy, of course, is rumored to be still devastated by her split from Mayer and insiders say she's close to ending her friendship with Rihanna as a result of the planned recording session.

"Katy's been left shocked and hurt after finding out John and Rihanna met up at an LA recording studio two weeks ago before having dinner," an anonymous source told the British tabloid Now

Having decided she is SO over staying in at night and baking cookies, Selena Gomez has dumped Taylor Swift and sought the company of a new confidant:

Katy Perry! Says a source close to the pop star:

“Katy has been helping Selena ... she’s doing everything she can to help her right now as far as being a shoulder to cry on, someone to talk to that will understand."

“She’s like a big sister to her, a non-judgmental big sister. Katy doesn’t push her opinions on Selena, but whenever Selena needs her, she is there for her.”

Non-judgmental = the opposite of Taylor Swift?

Reading between the lines, it looks like Selena wants a female pal who doesn't care if she's back together with Justin Bieber ... and who's more fun.

Not to mention, “Katy has a lot of life experience as far as fame, relationships and dealing with players,” the source says of Perry's own history.

She's been linked to just about every celebrity we can think of at this point, but it looks like those rumors of Katy Perry and Diplo dating may actually be true.

After confirming her split with ex John Mayer and joking that she was using the social flirting app Tinder, Katy was spotted with the DJ and producer in NYC.

The duo had dinner at the Marlton Hotel before heading to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere party, leaving side-by-side and getting in the same SUV.

Katy Perry and Diplo tried to avoid being photographed together, just as they did a few weeks ago when they were also spotted getting cozy at Coachella.

According to a source, the two “were together behind the main stage, where she had a tour bus or trailer, and a group of her friends were hanging out."

"It was very obvious that Katy and Diplo were together. They seemed inseparable and at one point they were seen getting onto her bus together.”

So much for the 29-year-old beauty hooking up with Jared Leto and Robert Pattinson during the past month ... or joking that she needs a boyfriend.

Clearly she's having fun playing the field ... and John Mayer is an idiot:

Celebrities know about as much about perfume as kids know about walkmans.

Still, this hasn't prevented an onslaught of famous people from coming out with their own fragrances.

Everyone from boy band members to Material Girls to former Ray J sex tape partners have attached their names to specific scents.

These sponsored bottles cost more than the average cologne, but, hey, at least you can brag to your friends that you're wearing something Jennifer Lopez may have one given approval of. That's worth something...we guess.

Herewith, we present 17 Celebrity Fragrances That Probably Smell Terrible... and also cost a pretty penny.

This self-titled Selena Gomez perfume may leave you lusting after Justin Bieber. Consider yourself warned.

Katy Perry's "Birthday" video has drawn a wide array of responses from viewers, but few have been more vocal online than civil rights groups who take offense to Katy's portrayal of bar mitzvah DJ "Yosef Shulum."

Shulum is one of several characters Perry plays in the 8-minute video, but while other scenes draw laughs from the antics of drunk clowns or aging strippers, the portion of the video featuring the Shulum character is mainly focused on poking fun at Jewish stereotypes.

This isn't the first time Katy has found herself at the heart of a racial controversy.

In November of 2013, she drew criticism from Asian rights groups for an offensive American Music Awards performance in which she dressed as a geisha and appropriated elements of Japanese culture.

Katy has yet to respond to claims that her portrayal of a Jewish man is insensitive, and even though the video was just released yesterday, this is not the first controversy concerning "Birthday."

If half the dating rumors we've heard about Katy Perry since her split from John Mayer are true, the singer deserves a place next to Taylor Swift in the Female Players Hall of Fame.

  • Jared Leto Image

Perry and Mayer have only been broken up for two months but already its been rumored that Katy dated DJ Diplo, rapper Riff Raff, and actor Robert Pattinson.

Now reports say Katy only briefly "hooked up" with Diplo and Pattinson and she really only has eyes for one dude: uber-shaggy actor Jared Leto, who climbed down from his cross to accept an Academy Award the same week Katy split from Mayer.

Coincidence? Probably. But maybe Katy was watching the Oscars heartbroken, and when she saw Jared deliver his acceptance speech, her religious upbringing and love of shaggy rocker dudes merged into one perfect desire to get with this sexy Christ figure.

Anyway, whatever the reason, Katy and Jared also hooked up at Coachella.

Katy Perry has never shied away from theatrics, and the singer obviously loves to go all out for her music videos, but in the clip for her new single "Birthday" Katy takes things to a new level by portraying five of the worst party entertainers that ever lived.

Don't be surprised to see Katy transitioning into feature films soon, as she demonstrates seriously impressive comedic acting chops playing: Goldie, Yosef Shulum, Kriss the Clown, Ace the Animal Trainer, and Princess Mandee, whose Twitter handle is way too long to reproduce here.

Yesterday's preview prepared us for Katy dressing as a clown and causing car accidents, but we never would've expected an 8-minute epic of a music video in which the singer performs a striptease for the elderly, eats a mouse, and describes herself as a "sh!t cake."

Yes, it really has to be seen to be believed.
