Katy Perry Says She Doesn’t ‘Need a Dude’ to Have Babies

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Katy Perry has had some pretty high-profile romances with the likes of John Mayer and ex-husband Russell Brand.

But the pop singer, 29, said while she wants to have kids someday, she doesn’t need a man to make it happen. She can do that on her own.

“I don’t need a dude,” she told Rolling Stone for its cover story, out August 1.

She also cited couples like Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, who have twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace.

“I mean, Neil and David, their twins are beautiful,” she said. “It’s 2014! We are living in the future; we don’t need anything. I don’t think I’ll have to, but we’ll see. I’m not anti-men. I love men. But there is an option if someone doesn’t present himself.”

While she has babies on the brain, she won’t be having them anytime soon.

“I want to be doing that in the right time,” she said. “And that’s not in the next two years, you know? Maybe it’s in a five-year plan, but I need to really be able to focus 100 percent of my attention on it.”

Perry is still promoting her latest album Prism and said the rigors of the music industry aren’t conducive just yet for her to have kids.

“I don’t really want to take the child on tour. Not until, like, birth through five is over,” she added.

Chris Pratt: Premature Son ‘Restored My Faith in God’

ABC/Lorenzo Bevilaqua(NEW YORK) — Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were excited to start a family.

“It started [for us] around the same time, and I don’t think one of us wanted it any more than the other,” Pratt, who stars in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, told People recently.

“She would say, ‘How do you feel about that?’ and I would say, ‘…I’ve been kind of thinking about that too! I think that’d be cool. Let’s make that happen.’”

Then their son, Jack, was born nine weeks premature in August 2012, and the couple felt helpless.

“We were scared for a long time. We prayed a lot,” Pratt, 35, said about the month Jack spent in intensive care.

“It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it,” the actor continued. “The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect.”

Now, Jack is now approaching his second birthday and Pratt calls him “a fighter.”

“He’s amazing,” Pratt says, laughing. “He’s so open and there’s no fear in him no matter what.”

The proud father added, “He is so charming that my plan is to just let him take care of us as soon as he’s old enough.”

Pratt’s Guardians of the Galaxy, backed by ABC News’ parent company, Walt Disney, opens Friday.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Wrote Handwritten Love Notes While Apart

ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) — Not long ago, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were working on projects on two different continents: Pitt was shooting Fury in London while Jolie was directing Unbroken in Australia.

However, they still found a way of staying close.

“We decided to be of that time when we could imagine he was in the European theater and I was in the Pacific theater and we wrote handwritten letters to each other that were very connecting for us,” she told TV Week in Australia. “He was supportive from a distance and it was quite romantic in a way.”

To Jolie, 39, Unbroken was a project that was worth sacrificing proximity to her love for. Based on the life of World War II veteran Louis Zamperini, it depicts the man’s life from childhood, to his time in the Olympics, to the war and beyond. She even got to show a rough cut of the film to Zamperini before he died earlier this month.

“I brought him the film on my laptop in the hospital and it was amazing seeing someone at the end of their life watching their life unfold again, at the same time their body was shutting down,” she said. “He wanted me to make the movie to show something hopeful about the strength of the human spirit that can pull us through. He reminded me to have my surgery in the year that I did and he reminded me to appreciate every day of my life.”

Justin Bieber Posts Photo of Orlando Bloom Following Fight

Theo Wargo/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — In what looks like somewhat of a taunt, Justin Bieber took to Instagram Wednesday night to post a picture of Orlando Bloom looking emotional, or just rubbing his eye.

Nonetheless, in the picture, Bloom’s head is down and he’s rubbing his right eye like you would do if you were tearing up.

The post came hours after the two reportedly got into a fight in Ibiza, Spain, while both the Lord of the Rings actor and the “Baby” singer were at the same venue.

Video surfaced of Bloom, 37, taking a swing at Bieber, 20 — then people stepping in to break it up.

This is the second picture Bieber posted involving Bloom following the altercation. Early Wednesday morning, he posted and took down a picture of Bloom’s ex Miranda Kerr, who is reportedly the subject of the argument between the two celebrities.

In 2012, pictures surfaced of Bieber hanging out with Kerr, then Bloom’s wife. Whether the two were taking things further than just being in each other’s company was never confirmed by either Bieber or Kerr.

Bloom was also photographed with Bieber’s ex Selena Gomez this past April, while the two looked to be taking a smoking break during the night. As with Bieber and Kerr, nothing has ever been confirmed about Gomez and Bloom, other than they hung out.

As of Thursday afternoon, the picture had mixed responses from Bieber’s followers on Instagram, including some that asked the singer to take it down, while others defended him.

“The Bachelorette’s” Andi and Josh Planning to Move in Together…Later This Year

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman and fiance Josh Murray are planning to move in together, but not immediately.

The couple tells People magazine they’re just “enjoying being engaged” and probably won’t move in together until later this year. They both live in Atlanta.

“We pretty much have been living with each other for these two months,” says Josh, a 29-year-old former professional baseball player. “We’ve been over at each other’s houses all the time.”

“That’s important for us, especially because of how quickly we got engaged. I’ve learned so much about him in the past two months and I love him more now than I did when I got engaged,” says Andi, a 27-year-old former assistant district attorney.

“It has definitely been a season of ups and downs, but just knowing that it’s Josh and I in the end makes it all worth it,” she added.

The couple plan to wed in spring…in front of ABC cameras, of course. Andi is okay with having her nuptials on TV. “As long as I get to marry him…and they have to show the reception,” she said.

“We’d have so much fun at the reception,” Josh added.
