Katy Perry to Ryan Phillippe: ‘Can u let me out of this basement pls?’

A couple of weeks ago Hollywood Life ran an exclusive, which was picked up by other outlets of course, that Katy Perry and Ryan Phillippe were looking coupled-up at Elton John’s 70th birthday party. Hollywood Life had an eyewitness who claimed to have seen them “totally flirting at Elton John’s birthday party!” and added that “They were seated at separate tables but he made his way over to her and sat down next to her. She was totally giggling and at one point he had his hand on her knee. Then he took off but came back late with [sic] for more flirting!” Hollywood life totally didn’t proof read that quote so it’s doubtful that anyone took that story seriously. They’re both single now from what we know so it’s possible, but most people met that story with a shrug.

It’s been pretty dead gossip-wise, and I would assume that the paparazzi are feeling it too. Apparently they targeted Ryan Phillippe’s house with some drones (?) I mean I would assume he’s referring to drones here and not actual helicopters, or else it would be incredibly expensive to try and surveil him just to get some blurry faraway photos of Katy Perry. The public’s interest in them is passing at best. Here’s what Ryan tweeted, in all Kanye caps, denying that he’s with Katy.

If they are actual helicopters, maybe they’re there for another person and not your imaginary romance Ryan. It’s not always about you! I live near a hospital and those damn helicopters fly over my house day and night. I’m not deluding myself thinking that they’re trying to catch a gossip blogger sunbathing.

So Katy then responded to Ryan as if she’d never met him before:

Then she added this:

Ryan retweeted the the tweet where Katy introduced herself and had a one word response to Katy’s request to be let out of the basement.

This was pretty clever of Katy, she’s not always sticking her foot in her mouth, and she also took advantage of this news cycle to plug her shoe line. I forgot she had a shoe line! She does, they’re somewhat affordable and run from $49 to $179, and she got Hillary Clinton to wear her “Hillary” pumps! Katy tweeted this photo of Hillary in the Hillarys.

So this got me to check out Katy’s shoes and damned if I don’t want a pair. (Not the cigar heel ones or the booties with the dollar signs on them, those are weird. I was thinking of this pair in blue and green, but they look potentially painful, like they would rub somewhere.) Well played, Katy. She’s no one’s basement baby, although that sounds kind of hot if Ryan Phillippe is involved and he respects your safe word.

Update: Oh and Katy got a buzz cut! She Instagrammed this pic of her new haircut, which is frankly a good idea. I’ve heard you should get a pixie before you try to grow out an asymmetric cut.

    Hah! Good one. I love her latest haircut btw (the one she posted a pic of yesterday).

  2. Clare says:

    I kind of love that exchange. I hope it leads to flirtation via DM’s and more – she seems to have a thing for dopey has-been’s so he’s totally her type, too.

  3. QQ says:

    Liked the exchange but if Phillippe is in any way in the radar/Works.. This Girl’s Picker is irretrievably broken

  4. kimbers says:

    Still can’t believe her Britney comment, but since she’s been looking less then healthy and heavy handed in substance lately maybe there’s something there?

  5. Merlin'sWife says:

    Sooo after all the Britney shaving-head jokes… she’s shaved her head?

    “It’s like the last colour in the spectrum that I can do. I’ve done all of them and the only thing left to do is shave my head, which I’m really saving for a public breakdown. I’m down for that. I’m almost moments away from that, obviously.” -Katy Perry

    She’s the worst.

  7. Twink says:

    I like Katy. Hillary and her seem to genuinely appreciate each other.

  8. Amanda DG says:

    Must admit, her response was hilarious.
