People: Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry are close to being engaged

Embed from Getty Images
It’s been so long since I wrote about Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom that I forgot they were still together. The couple mutually decided to take a break in February 2017 after dating for a year. In January of this year, they decided they couldn’t quit each other and began hooking up when they could, including meeting up in the Maldives and globe-trotting to attend each other’s shows. Orlando went to Tokyo to catch a show on Katy’s Witness tour and Katy went to England to see Orlando (naked) in the play Killer Joetelling him in an Instagram comment that she needs “a season pass for that ass.”

The two made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Global Ocean Gala in Monte Carlo last week. Afterwards, since hanging with the royals is so exhausting, they went on vacation in Corfu, Greece. And now, there are rumors that an engagement is coming. A source told People Magazine that “Orlando doesn’t have a ring yet but has been talking about the future,” adding that, “Everyone would be excited if they got engaged. Katy is wonderful!” Another source told Us Weekly:

“Katy and Orlando have worked out all their kinks and have had really fluid communication about what each of them wants. Katy doesn’t want this relationship to be a repeat cycle of things she’s already experienced in past relationships that didn’t work out. She’s learned to grow from them and doesn’t want that in her current relationship.”

So, is a “season pass for that ass” equivalent to an engagement ring? It does appear that, despite their hectic schedules, they are doing their best to make time for each other. Per Us’s source, “They really try to communicate well and spend as much time together as possible,” and “They are very much in love, so an engagement wouldn’t be a surprise.”

I don’t hate them together. I do hate Katy’s haircut though. That’s usually the cut you go with after marriage and kids, not before, right? Everyone around them says they’re happy, so it seems that they might be ready to take that next stepping their relationship. And, if they do get married, let’s hope that a little paddleboarding takes place on the honeymoon.

    Not a big fan per se or either but love them as a couple (idk why) and want them to get married and have kids together hahah. Again idk why… i dont even care about marriage. Weird.

    • Sojaschnitzel says:

      Pretty much the same over here. Don’t know why either. Don’t care if they have kids but it would make me happy to see those two crazy kids getting married.

    • Millenial says:

      My guess is Katy is starting to feel her clock ticking, and Orly is suitable enough, and willing. I think they will have at least 1 kiddo, maybe 2, and then consciously uncouple.

  2. Lakota says:

    I can’t hate them, they seem cute together. Lots of residual Legolas love too.

  3. kellybean says:

    I agree. That haircut is awful. She needs to go back to longer hair. And I, for one, prefer it dark, too. And what is with that dress? Why would anyone want to restrict movement of your arms? Silly

    • convexexed says:

      I am so torn on that dress. I see your point about restricted arm movement, which would hinder her ability to climb out a window in case of fire or pick up a cute puppy. On the other hand, she probably has staff to lift her out of windows and cuddle puppies on her behalf. So I kind of love the dress, love the draping and the color, love the silver sequin sleeves. Do not love the square of satin at the center-bottom of bust; would like to see that replaced with a miniature tapestry depicting Legolas in battle.
      Hair-wise, it has a bit of the post-menopausal art teacher thing going on; all it needs is a flowy scarf and chandelier earrings made of buttons. ALL DUE RESPECT TO THE ART TEACHERS, I LOVE WHAT YOU DO—but Katy hasn’t earned the right to wear that hair yet. She’s too young and too inexperienced.

  4. TQ says:

    I dunno about this pairing.

    She’s seemed a bit off the past year(?) — that bad hair, the bad album, the weird interviews, etc. Don’t see that same sparkle in her eyes. There are also those rumours about her being on something.

    And ever since his 2017 hook up with that Chiltern Firehouse waitress I’ve seen him differently. He seemed very devoted to Miranda Kerr & their son. But now he just looks (and acts?) more…sketchy.

    But hey, maybe that all makes them perfect for each other?

    • SK says:

      Agree- I DON’T feel this pairing.
      I don’t totally understand why but I love Katy and John Mayer together … I thought she glows around him and he was profoundly in love with her.
      Orlando I have heard from people who worked with him is nice but dim

  5. minx says:

    I can see it.

  6. Hazel says:

    I used to have a crush on him. Now when I see him I ask where the traces of hotness have gone. He really didn’t age well. I suppose when the looks went, so did the leading man roles.

    • Esmom says:

      I was going to say the same thing. But if Katy sees it, good for her I guess, lol.

    • Nikki says:

      It seems so mean, but sadly, I agree. It’s not just age either, because there are “silver foxes” who are super attractive. Maybe he’ll improve later in life again!

      • Dee Kay says:

        Had any actor lost the hotness as quickly as Bloom did? Mickey Roarke but that was due mostly to boxing, I think, and the drugs and drinking didn’t help. But Bloom hasn’t really done anything to *harm* his looks, they just…went away on their own, I guess.

  7. Meg says:

    He’s sleazy. Katy can do better

  8. Ramona Q. says:

    Looks like neither of them mind that the sex with John Mayer was better!

  9. TyrantDestroyed says:

    I can see an engagement coming as well. Hopefully she finds a stable love. I don’t hate them.

  10. Caseymams says:

    I just love Orly’s double denim jackets 😂

  11. Sam says:

    Despite myself, I kind of love that dress. And leave her hair alone. “The haircut you get after marriage and kids”? Really?! I mean, no, it’s certainly not the best her hair has ever looked but every girl deserves the chance to play with short hair no matter her marital or reproductive status.

  12. Case says:

    I’ll just say this: Keira Knightley is the only actor to come out of Pirates who hasn’t let me down. You go, Keira!

  13. VeronicaLodge says:

    Eh, I did the Gweneth inspired “Sliding Doors” short hair in my early 20’s. It was feminine but more maintenance then my hair now (half way down my back). After my daughter was born, a ponytail was way easier then the styling it took with the short hair. Looking back, I wore a lot more makeup with the short cut. Katy seems to be doing the same.

  14. specialp says:

    Her like ability went down quite a bit when she cut her hair.

  15. Pandy says:

    His hair cut looks like clients I see in a hospital setting who had to get a buzz cut because they are dealing with lice. Ugh. Per another commenter, he does seem sleazy.

  16. Alyse Leitao says:

    Like them as a couple

    Absolutely HATE that dress… she has done so much better fashion wise!!

    People should do whatever they want to express themselves, but objectively her style was far better when she was doing the black hair glamorous Dita look
