Hundreds of lip-dub videos are dedicated to covering Katy Perry's hit song "Roar," with the star promising to perform live at the high school with the best one.

This one is different, though.

It's not from a school, but it celebrates the meaning behind the #1 song like never before, and Katy Perry would no doubt be proud to have inspired it.

Patients, nurses, doctors, staff and administrators at the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock in New Hampshire all assembled for this effort. Watch:

The video, shot in one day, captures almost all the kids at CHaD who were "feeling well enough to get out of bed and dance," according to local media.

Funds raised through sharing of the video will benefit the CHaD Hero Half Marathon. So far, the response has been astounding - upwards of $650,000.

For more information on how you can help their efforts, visit their donation site, and just share the video with someone. It's fun and for a great cause.

After seeing Katy Perry's new photo shoot in W Magazine, we've concluded that John Mayer is as lucky in love as he is talented as a singer-songwriter.

Yes, he's made some douchey moves over the years and some of his tunes are way overplayed, but the pseudo-blues rocker on a roll these days.

Katy has had her eyes on him for awhile. As she tells W, "I actually am dating my crush ... I had a crush on him for a long time." Prepare to envy John:

Asked if she liked being hitched, despite the 14-month length of her marriage to Russell Brand (which puts Kim Kardashian to shame), she didn't hesitate.

"Of course," she said. "I loved it. It was a new, fun, exciting journey."

"But I like how I am now, and I think all things happen for a reason."

One Direction singer Niall Horan wants Katy Perry to marry him. Jokingly, of course. But not entirely jokingly because he is a 20-year-old male and she is Katy Perry.

Niall tweeted at the "Roar" singer after she performed on The X Factor.

"I love you @katyperry! Thank you! Ps. Will u marry me?" Niall joked.

KP, who shared a kiss with Niall at the MTV VMAs, has always had a cute relationship with him, going back to when he auditioned for The X Factor in 2010.

As guest judge, Perry gave him the final vote that he needed to make it through to boot camp, although she did say that he needed to work on his vocals.

After breaking up once, only to rekindle the flame earlier this year, are Katy Perry and John Mayer on the brink of making their relationship official?

Katy Perry and John Mayer are reportedly "very serious" about each other. So much so that the couple's friends are waiting for their big announcement.

"Everyone knows it's just a question of when John will propose," a source close to the singer-songwriter told Us Weekly after his brother's wedding.

That would be Carl Mayer, who tied the knot at New York's Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht Club, and left Katy and John pondering their future.

He also attended her performance on Saturday Night Live October 12, the day before his brother's wedding, and at the after-party, the PDA was "intense."

Katy Perry loves John Mayer. He's a smart guy, according to the pop star.

"He literally is a genius, as is evident from his songwriting," Perry tells Billboard magazine, in which she also promotes her highly anticipated album PRISM.

"I always tell him, 'Darling, you know I'm going to have to give your mind to science after you've passed, because we're going to have to understand how all these sparks work.'"

You may vomit on cue. But keep the bag handy, because it continues:

"We'll be in bed, and he'll be doing the crossword puzzle. Every night, he tries to finish in under 10 minutes," she says. "When he puts his mind to something, he really gets it done very well."

Katy Perry’s new single, “Roar,” is a smash big hit with her fans.

Not so much with PETA, due to its jungle-themed music video.

The animal rights group is slamming the use of the creatures in Perry’s video, which features the singer cavorting with monkeys, elephants and tigers.

“Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods,” a PETA spokesman said.

The group added of the animals, “They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations.”

Courtney Love is on Team Miley.

With the 20-year old artist under heavy flak for an arguably racist VMA routine - followed by a raunchy, naked "Wrecking Ball" video - the former Hole singer told The New York Post last night that critics have been too hard on Cyrus.

"That hillbilly Miley Cyrus is sort of punk in a weird sex way," Love told the crowd at the Dream Downtown during a set to celebrate Scott Lipps’ book “PopLipps," adding of Miley's infamous Video Music Awards performance:

"It was openly sexual...  like dark and hillbilly and [bleeped] up."
