Katy Perry told to pay $550k to Christian rapper Flame

That amount is a part of the $2.7m (£2.2m) awarded to gospel artist Flame, who has successfully sued the star for copying one of his songs.

Her label, Capitol Records, will have to pay most of the total amount.

The singer's legal team say they plan to appeal, if the case is not dismissed pending a defence motion.

Earlier this week, a US court found Katy, her producers and songwriters guilty of copyright infringement.

Taylor Swift makes peace with Katy Perry in You Need to Calm Down music video

The pop star shared her new You Need to Calm Down video on Monday.

The song, which debuted on Friday, is a cheeky anti-hate anthem that celebrates Pride.

For her upcoming new album, Lover, Swift has ditched the dark, sinister colour tones of her Reputation album in favour of candy-coated rainbow ones. 

The new music video follows suit, taking place in a wonderland of a trailer park, and ending with a buzzworthy scene of Katy Perry and Swift ending their long-running feud by embracing onscreen, with Perry as a hamburger and Swift an order of fries.

Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom confirm engagement

The pair shared the same close-up image of their faces, with Perry's hand and pink engagement ring clearly visible, from their separate Instagram accounts.

Bloom, 42, captioned it "lifetimes", while Perry, 34, wrote "full bloom".

The pair have been dating since January 2016, but broke up between February 2018 and April 2018. They're both been married before - Bloom to model Miranda Kerr, Perry to comedian Russell Brand.

Perry's ring is rumoured to cost around US$5 million (NZ$7.2 million) due to the quality and number of diamonds involved.

Katy Perry: I'm a victim of social media pressure

The singer and American Idol judge says Instagram and Twitter are proof of the "decline of civilisation".

She also encouraged fans to not care about social media and to instead live their lives.

Perry has over 68 million Instagram followers and 108 million Twitter followers, but says she would rather not document her whole life online.

"It's hard because I'd rather not care about that and just live my life," she told Refinery29.

"We buy clothing and products or pose a certain way or go to an event to get a picture - it's not good for us as a society.

Katy Perry and the Catholic Church awarded $10m in convent case

Perry agreed to purchase the hilltop property for $14.5m (£10.8m) in 2015.

But two of the nuns who used to live there objected, and instead sold it to restaurateur Dana Hollister without the approval of the archdiocese.

Last month, a jury found Hollister intentionally interfered with Perry's planned purchase.

The businesswoman made her purchase of the eight-acre property with the co-operation of Sisters Rita Callanan and Catherine Rose Holzman, who maintained they had the authority to sell.

The singer was doing an intimate gig in a pub near Kings Cross station when she spoke to the crowd.

"It was hard. It was hard for you guys I know, it was hard for me, because we all love music.

"And that's my friend, that's my cousin, that's my friend who loves music", she added before getting tearful.

Katy Perry says her latest album isn't about her 'feud' with Taylor Swift

Asked whether she'd respond to Taylor's track Bad Blood, Katy said there wasn't anything on her latest record that was "calling out any one person".

"This record is not about anyone else. This record is about me being seen and heard so that I can see and hear everyone else. It's not even about me," she told Entertainment Weekly.

"[But] you can't mistake kindness for weakness," she added.

"Don't come for me. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone.

Fans attack Katy Perry for Instagram photo

She shared a photo of the cover of the New York Times, which featured Katy at the fashion event.

But it was a second photo on the image of the newspaper that upset many followers.

The cover showed an image of a French policeman who had been set on fire during recent protests in Paris.

The page also has two stories about Donald Trump and the New York Times has taken an anti-Trump stance since his election in November 2016.

Katy Perry and Ryan Phillippe shoot down dating rumors

That was the actor's message as he tried to set the record straight about him and the "Roar" singer.

The pair managed to make hay out of rumors they have been making whoopie.

It all started Sunday when Phillippe tweeted a denial, all in caps for emphasis, that he has been dating Perry.

"I am not dating Katy Perry," he tweeted. "Barely know her. Please stop flying helicopters over my house. She is not here. Thx."

That led one fan to tweet "Thats what some1 who has Katy Perry in his basement would say....."
