A Newsdump for 2 April 2012: From Katy Perry looking medieval to Jessie J’s extreme fan ordeal

Katy Perry flying into stage dressed like some sort of medieval pop monster and Justin Bieber getting gunged were just some of the highlights from the Kids’ Choice Awards over the weekend. (Billboard)

Brandy looks ‘interesting’ in this magazine photo spread, although unfortunately there is no sign of Monica anywhere. (That Grape Juice)

The Daily Mirror are quite excited that Kylie Minogue wore a t-shirt with a “vintage” Daily Mirror printed on it for her Anti-Tour performance in Manchester. (Daily Mirror)

Madonna has overtaken Elvis Presley as the artist with the most solo Number One albums in the UK, with ‘MDNA’ becoming her 12th overall. (Official Charts) Meanwhile Changed Man Chris Brown has achieved his first ever Number One single with ‘Turn Up The Music’. Well done everyone.

Michelle Obama apparently invited One Direction to the annual Easter egg hunt at the White House, but they’ve had to turn it down as they’ll be in Australia by then. (The Sun) Yes, apparently an annual White House Easter egg hunt is a Thing That Actually Exists.

‘The Other Side Of The Door’ hitmaker Taylor Swift won Entertainer Of The Year at the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards last night. (Ace Showbiz)

In case people were any harbouring any doubts, Ke$ha has confirmed that she loves penguins. (Twitter)

The Origibabes have signed a record deal with Polydor and will definitely need a new name despite the fact that no one seems to be using the old one. (The Sun) Having said this, Sean Michaels has still not confirmed this news so nobody treat it as fact until he’s had his say, okay?

And finally, Jessie J was understandably a little disturbed to find out a young fan had broken their leg to copy the injury she suffered last year. (Contactmusic) That’s taking things a bit far, isn’t it viewers? When we’re feeling in a Jessie kind of mood, we just throw on an old ‘onesie’ and sing inspirational things to ourselves while thrusting ourselves around all over the place. It might sound silly but it helps kill the time on long bus journeys.
