Katy Perry finally explains why she finally decided to address her feud with Taylor Swift during a May appearance on The Late Late Show. "Well, James Corden makes me and the whole world feel very safe. No one has asked me about my side of the story," she says, "and there are three sides of every story: one, two and the truth." Perry says she finally reached a breaking point with Swift, who has not spoken out since the interview. "Things irritate me. I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I'm also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls," she explains. "That's so messed up!" And even though Swift hired Perry's longtime collaborator Max Martin to co-write the diss track "Bad Blood," the "Bon Appétit " singer doesn't hold any grudges against the popular music producer. "I'm not supposed to tell him what he can and can't do. I'm very fair; I'm super-duper fair and I'm not one of those people who's like, 'You can't do that because I don't like that person,'" she tells sources. "You do you. Make your own choices...I'm not his mother."

America's most lovable James Corden learned the hard way that not everything is a laughing matter. On Friday night The Late Late Show star hosted a glittering star-studded amfAR Los Angeles Gala honoring Julia Roberts—and while captaining the charity event, the funnyman couldn't help but to throw a few jabs at disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of both assault and rape. But many people of the Internet didn't think his words were so funny and the entertainer faced some serious online backlash for his remarks. The Brit took to Twitter on Sunday to apologize, writing, "To be clear, sexual assault is no laughing matter. I was not trying to make light of Harvey’s inexcusable behavior, but to shame him, the abuser, not his victims. I am truly sorry for anyone offended, that was never my intention."
The Shape of Water, about a woman who falls in love with a sea creature, has taken the top honours at the Oscars. Frances McDormand won best actress for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and persuaded every female nominee to stand with her in a night full of statements about inclusion. Britain's Gary Oldman was named best actor for playing Winston Churchill in World War Two epic Darkest Hour. The Shape of Water won the most Oscars with four, including best film. In her acceptance speech, McDormand put her Oscar on the floor in front of her and addressed executives as the female nominees got to their feet. It was one of the most powerful and symbolic moments of the night. "Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed," she said. "Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight - invite us into your office in a couple of days, or you can come to ours, whatever suits you best - and we'll tell you all about them." Her request came amid a push for greater equality in film - especially in the wake of the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal.
