Katy Perry’s Early Love of Leopard Print

[tiImage width=”300″ height=”400″ url=”http://img2.timeinc.net/instyle/images/2010/wrn/122210-Katy-300.jpg” credit=”Polk Imaging/FilmMagic” align=”left” border=”1″ alt=””]Katy Perry (pictured here last year) is often spotted in leopard print, and now we know why: Her love affair with the animal pattern started in sixth grade, when her mom gave her a vintage leopard-print coat for Christmas. “You know how everybody wears [their new] clothes back after Christmas? I got made fun of super bad because it’s really warm in California. I didn’t need a fake leopard coat!” Perry told JustJared.com. “But I knew I was doing something good, or something right, because all the hot moms would pull up to pick up their kids, and be like, ‘Um, where did you get your coat?‘” Oh, Katy—always ahead of the curve!

Darren Criss Tweaked his Grooming Habits for Glee

Darren Criss, the adorable new star of Glee who blew audiences away with his rendition of Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream,’ says he and his prepster character, Blaine (left), have quite a few differences—especially in the grooming department. “I look very different from [Blaine],” the 23-year-old told Interview magazine. “He has slicked-back hair, while I have really curly hair. And I never shave. I’m kind of a bum.” As far as we’re concerned, though, Criss looks pretty darn good—with or without his five o’clock shadow.

Hear Darren Criss sing ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ on Glee’s new Christmas album, available now.
