Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom made the mutual decision to end their 10-month relationship with an amicable split.  On Tuesday, the duo released a joint statement: “Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.”

An E! News source revealed, “Katy pulled the plug.  It was a few events that happened over the past few months.  They both still love each other very much, though, and getting back together could happen once they have some space."

Perry and Bloom were photographed smiling together at the Vanity Fair Oscars after party on Sunday night.  An onlooker told People, “Katy didn’t spend much time with Orlando.  They got together for a photo, but that was about it.”  According to the source, Perry had grown close with Bloom’s son, Flynn.  The insider said, “They are still in contact and want to keep everything between them pretty private.  Katy has built a really strong connection with Flynn.  It's sad but it will work out how it's supposed to.”

Recently, Perry has been busy promoting her fourth studio album, while Bloom has been around the world for UNICEF outreach.

CELEBS REACT TO “AWKWARD” BEST PICTURE MISTAKE AT 2017 OSCARS

On Sunday night, the 89th Academy Awards were held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.  The night was full of memorable moments, from host Jimmy Kimmel’s teasing of Matt Damon, Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali’s important Oscar wins, to several political statements throughout the night.

But perhaps the most unforgettable moment came right at the tail end of the ceremony when “La La Land” was mistakenly named Best Picture instead of the real winner, “Moonlight.”  Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway took the stage to open the Best Picture envelope and read off the film’s name, during which Beatty seemed to pause for comic effect before announcing, “La La Land.”  The “La La Land” crew took the stage to accept the award and even started giving speeches before the mistake was realized.  “La La Land” producer Jordan Horowitz went up to the mic and said, “You guys, I’m sorry, no.  There’s a mistake.  ‘Moonlight,’ you guys won Best Picture.”  After a few moments, the “Moonlight” cast and crew ascended the stage where they exchanged hugs and words with the “La La Land” team.  Beatty chimed in later: “I want to tell you what happened.  I opened the envelope and it said, ‘Emma Stone, La La Land.’  That’s why I took such a long look at Faye, and at you.  I wasn’t trying to be funny.”

Watch the entire awkward moment below.

Celebrities who tuned in to watch the ceremony reacted with shock and cracked jokes at the Best Picture flub on Twitter.  THE WANNA has gathered the best celeb reactions below.

CELEBS TWEET IN SUPPORT OF TRANSGENDERS AFTER TRUMP LIFTS BATHROOM PROTECTION LAWS

On Wednesday, the Donald Trump administration reversed Barack Obama’s federal protection laws that allowed transgender students to use whichever bathroom corresponds to their gender identity.  The White House explained Trump’s decision in a statement: "As President Trump has clearly stated, he believes policy regarding transgender bathrooms should be decided at the state level.  The joint decision made today by the Department of Justice and the Department of Education paves the way for an open and inclusive process to take place at the local level with input from parents, students, teachers and administrators."

The reversal sparked protests and angered several civil rights groups, such as the American Civil Liberties Union.  The LGBT project director for the ACLU, James Esseks, said: "Revoking the guidance shows that the president's promise to protect LGBT rights was just empty rhetoric.  But the bottom line is that this does not undo legal protections for trans students, and school districts can and must continue to protect them and all students from discrimination.  School districts that recognize that should continue doing the right thing; for the rest, we'll see them in court."

Obama’s decision to protect transgender rights in the bathroom had previously been celebrated among civil rights groups, including the ACLU.  The group wrote about Obama’s move: “This is a BIG deal – the federal government just made history and set clear standards to protect transgender people!”

Several celebrities took to Twitter to express their outrage at Trump revoking the protections, and show their support of the transgender community.  THE WANNA has gathered the reaction tweets below.

Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance at the 12th annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball to present Katy Perry with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award.

Perry and Clinton have a serious mutual appreciation of each other, and it was on full display at the Snowflake Ball.  Clinton took the stage unannounced to dedicate a speech to Katy as recipient of the Humanitarian Award.  Clinton said, “On a personal level, I cannot tell you how delighted I am to be here to help celebrate a global megastar, a social media queen with the most Twitter followers in the world – although she's getting some competition – and someone whose powerful voice and creative lyrics remind us when you get knocked down to get back up.”  Clinton continued, “I have seen Katy's commitment to the causes she believes in firsthand.  I've gotten to spend time with her and I know how deeply she cares about making our world a better place.  She is serious about understanding the complex problems we face and pulling people together to solve them.  We need champions like Katy now more than ever: her passion, her energy and, yes, her voice, louder than a lion.”

Perry, who actively supported Hillary throughout her Presidential campaign, was visibly emotional when she went onstage to accept the award.  Perry, tearing up at Clinton’s speech, joked, “Does anyone have a tissue?”  Perry returned Clinton’s kind words in her acceptance speech: “I've always had a voice, a singing voice, but I've never had a voice like I've had before.  Hillary has lit that voice inside of me, and that light will never go out, it will continue to get brighter and brighter and brighter.  Thank you Hillary.  You motivate me and so many millions of people.  We appreciate you for your incredible work and your heart.”

The WANNA is all for two powerful ladies supporting each other!

KATY PERRY SAYS PLANNED PARENTHOOD TAUGHT HER “HOW THINGS WORK DOWN THERE"

While some celebs have chosen to join in on the anti-Trump riots including: Mark Ruffalo, Josh Hutcherson, and Lady Gaga.  Others have chosen to move forward and speak out about certain Liberal issues that are incredibly important to them...

Pop star Katy Perry, an avid Clinton supporter, proved she will continue to be a Democratic voice despite which party is in office in January.  This past Saturday evening, Perry made her fans proud when she publicly posted on Instagram that she made a $10,000 donation to the "pro-choice" and pro sex education organization, Planned Parenthood.

In the Instagram post, Perry expressed her fear of Planned Parenthood being defunded “in the future by the government.”  It's obvious Perry is like millions of other pro-choice advocates who are anticipating President-elect Donald Trump will stay true to his campaign threats to cut government funding for planned parenthood, once he takes office in January, 2017.

We give Perry major props for her pro-choice post which revealed a very personal and positive experience she had with Planned Parenthood as a young girl.  Perry (a preacher's daughter) revealed how growing up, her family was “lower-to-middle class," and they could not afford health insurance.

Thanks to the help and services of Planned Parenthood she was able to receive some necessary sex ed.  Katy said it was her "sheltered upbringing" that left her with no idea of “how things work down there!”  But Planned Parenthood gave her the sex education she needed.  Perry's exact post stated,  “Planned Parenthood educated me on my body and my reproductive health, so that I could focus on my dreams and using my voice until I knew the timing was right for me to make a plan to have a family.”  She also said her experience with Planned Parenthood allowed her to become a “voice for others.”

The WANNA wants to know what you think! 

If you were famous, would you publicly support Planned Parenthood?  Comment below! 

You can read Perry's entire post below. 

It's time to turn words into action❗️There are so many steps to take, but my first vow is to support organizations that may have their funding support taken from them in the future by the government. I am making a public donation to Planned Parenthood for the teenage me who made several visits to first a clinic in Santa Barbara and then Los Angeles, CA to educate myself on my sexual health, a subject I had little to no information on because of my sheltered upbringing. I had no idea how things worked down there, and had no idea how to make a plan for them. Planned Parenthood educated me on my body and my reproductive health, so that I could focus on my dreams and using my voice until I knew the timing was right for me to make a plan to have a family. Since then, I have been able to focus wholeheartedly on bringing messages of strength and becoming a voice for others. Without this education, I may have had a different life path. That is just my experience, but I know Planned Parenthood's broader range of services can sometimes be the only medical support low-income families ever see. I know what it's like to need help. I came from a lower- to middle-class family and never grew up with the option of health insurance. I remember having 13 cavities as a teenager, and the best option my parents could come up with was to try and take me to Mexico because we couldn't afford anything in California. I am grateful for and stand in support of Planned Parenthood for giving Katheryn Hudson the knowledge to plan, and for continuing to be a haven for women to learn all options for their future. Now, more than ever, we all need to protect and create safe places for each other. I hope I can help inspire you to make a gift as well, and become a member and an ally.

After a long night of waiting for all the Election results to roll in on November 8th, Donald Trump was named President-elect of the United States with a win over Hillary Clinton.  Throughout Hillary Clinton’s campaign, a long list of Hollywood heavies supported her and dissuaded people from voting for Trump.  These celebrities included Beyonce, Jay-Z, Scarlett Johansson, Madonna, Adele, Robert Downey Jr., Meryl Streep, Robert DeNiro, and so many more.  The WANNA kept up with the celebrities who said “I’m with her,” and the many celeb-driven PSAs dedicated to voting against Trump.

Yet even with all this backing from Hollywood A-listers, it was just not enough to win Hillary the Presidency.

On Election Night, November 8th, left-leaning celebrities took to Twitter to express their shock, fear and sadness over Hillary’s loss and Trump’s Presidential victory.  The WANNA has gathered the most emotional celebrity tweets below.

Election Day, November 8th, is here people!  Americans are flocking to the polls to cast their ballots for the next U.S. President.  Throughout this presidential race, famous singers have taken the stage at various rallies and fundraisers in support of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, including Katy Perry, Beyonce, and Chance the Rapper.  On the final night before Election Day, Hillary got some major help from music legends Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, and Madonna.

Monday night, Hillary held a last-minute rally at Independence Mall in Philadelphia, for a crowd of around 20,000 people.  Hillary was joined by her husband Bill Clinton, the Obamas, Bruce Springsteen, and Jon Bon Jovi.  Bon Jovi performed a live set for the rally crowd, including The Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun.”  Bon Jovi then addressed the audience, saying, “I am voting for someone who sees my nieces as future leaders, and not objects to be rated.”

Next up, Springsteen performed his three songs, "Thunder Road," "Dancing in the Dark" and "Long Walk Home."  Springsteen had some choice words for Donald Trump: “This is a man whose vision is limited to little beyond himself, who has the profound lack of decency that would allow him to prioritize his own interests and ego before American democracy itself.  Somebody who would be willing to damage our long-cherished and admired system rather than look to himself for the reasons behind his own epic failure.  And that's unforgivable. Tomorrow, those ideas and that campaign is going down.”

Springsteen finished with, “Let's all do our part so we can look back on 2016 and say we stood with Hillary Clinton on the right side of history. That's why I'm standing here with you tonight, for the dream of a better America.”

Nothing like a free Springsteen-Bon Jovi concert to spread the word to get out and vote!

Hillary also had some last-minute campaign help from Madonna.  The hugely famous singer took it upon herself to perform a surprise, acoustic concert in New York City’s Washington Square Park Monday night.  She sang, “Express Yourself,” “Like A Prayer,” and John Lennons’ “Imagine.”  After the performance, Madonna implored the audience to vote, saying, “Please come out tomorrow.  Vote with your heart, vote with your mind, vote with your spirit, vote with your soul.  Save this country, please.  Vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton!”

Take it from music legends Madonna, Springsteen, and Bon Jovi – Get out there and vote!
