You’ll Never Guess Who Katy Perry Is Dating

Katy Perry split from her husband Russel Brand and it was only a matter of time before Brand started dating a model. He did, obviously: 25-year-old model (“and artist”!) Oriella Medellin and here’s her website.

Perry, however, totally one-upped him! She’s been photographed canoodling (worst word in the English language, I’d wager) with Karl Lagerfeld‘s daemon familiar: Baptiste Giabiconi. They apparently met at the Chanel runway show last week during PFW and hit it off. Now, sources close to the French male model are talking to websites and here is one of the more entertaining things you’ll read today:

The first thing that attracted BG to KP was her tattoo of Jesus,” one source reveals. “And because he is a strong believer in god, it was an instant attraction. It was not only who she was but her beliefs that made him so drawn to her.”

And according to mutual friends, the chemistry was evident from the first time they locked eyes on each other this week in Paris.“There was an instant spark and a connection,” reveals one source who saw the pair together.

“Baptiste is a big fan of Katy as she is his musical muse. Many of the songs on his upcoming album “Oxygen” are inspired by her or about her.”

A bouquet of flowers! That Giabiconi sounds like a real romantic. Hopefully he serenades her, too? Anyway, Lagerfeld has given his creepy, paternalistic seal of approval also: “I’m happy when Baptiste is happy.”

      Oriella’s website makes her look like an exaggerated caricature of the stereotypical “model/artist” – much like a ridiculous character from a movie like Zoolander or even Brandt’s rock star stereotype character in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Hilarious. Can’t believe she’s serious…

        That is most certainly why I linked to it. I hope your speakers were on!

      For some reason reading this made me laugh hysterically. Anyone else? Male model drawn to her Jesus tattoo…Oh! And his “album” is largely about her. So hilarious.

    • OhISee

      How are most of his songs about her? Paris Fashion Week wasn’t *that* long ago.

      Also, why is it ok for Katy Perry to have blue hair in her 20s? Didn’t everyone make fun of Avril fr not growing up/having colored hair still in her 20s?

      Katy is gross. I always think of her without makeup.
