Katy Perry may shoot things out of her breasts and sing about kissing girls, but underneath the makeup, tight clothing, and theatrics is a woman who longs for a lost childhood. In a revealing interview with Vanity Fair, Perry opens up about her conservative upbringing, telling the mag she wasn’t able to use the words “deviled eggs” or “Dirt Devil.” She says the only book she was allowed to read was the Bible and admits, “I didn't have a childhood.” The songtress describes her evangelical parents as “a very non-accepting family,” but that her family has grown and changed with her. She tells the magazine, “I think sometimes when children grow up, their parents grow up. Mine grew up with me. We coexist. I don’t try to change them anymore, and I don’t think they try to change me. We agree to disagree.” Katy says her parents are now very accepting of her career. [Vanity Fair]

The Hacking Continues at Sony

Sony Online Entertainment has once again been forced to shut down its online games service and Facebook games after discovering a second system hack. The system was suspended yesterday at 1:30 am PT. This security breach involved the hacking of 25 million personal accounts and actually occurred before last week’s crippling PlayStation break-in, which resulted in the theft of data from 77 million user accounts. Sony released a statement stating “we had to temporarily take down SOE services during the night.” Games that were affected include PoxNora, Dungeon Overlord, Wildlife Refuge, as well as games based on the Star Wars movies. Sony hopes to restart its PlayStation Network next week and is planning on offering users a 30-day free subscription, plus one day's free usage for every day the service was out of action.

According to information from The Drudge Report, Barack Obama has finally decided to release photos of Osama Bin Laden's corpse. U.S. officials have stated that there were three sets of photos taken from the day Bin Laden was killed by American forces. They include his body moments after the American attack, his burial at sea, and shots of the actual raid itself. Unfortunately for all of you salivating for these images, there’s been no word from the White House on when they plan to release the images. [Drudge Report]

Phil Spector Murder Conviction Appeal Rejected

Phil Spector's recent appeal to overturn his murder conviction for the death of Lana Clarkson back in 2003 has been rejected by a California court. The legendary maestro’s appeal centered on objections to the testimony of a number of women who knew Spector personally and all stated on record that Spector had indeed threatened them with guns. Justice Joan Klein stated: "The evidence showed that, when fueled by alcohol and faced with a lack or loss of control over a woman who was alone with him and in whom he had a romantic or sexual interest, Spector underwent a sharp mood swing, exhibited extreme anger, and threatened the women." My guess is that Spector is just depressed about his lack of hair product access in prison. [Billboard]
