New Music Video - Katy Perry

Katy Perry - "The One That Got Away"

The Video begins with an old Katy Perry at a modernistic home with what is presumably her husband. As she sits on her bed it cuts back to a younger Perry with her boyfriend, an artist. They paint portraits of each other and dance at a party. He gives her a tattoo. These are inter-cut with shots of the older Perry looking sad.

 In the flashback, the younger Perry and her boyfriend are seen fighting, culminating in her splashing red paint on one of his paintings. He leaves angrily and drives way. The younger Perry appears to the older Perry in her bedroom. The painter is seen driving and, when trying to avoid running over large rocks in the road, crashing off a cliff. The older Perry is seen standing at the cliffside where the car crashed. The ghost of the painter appears and holds hands with older Perry, revealing matching wing tattoos on their hands. However, in the next shot, the ghost in gone, and the older Perry slowly walks away from the cliffside.

Doris Day To Release First Album In 17 Years

Eighty-eight's not too late: Doris Day will release her first album in 17 years, "My Heart," on December 2, Billboard reports.

At 88, Day will be the oldest person on the charts. Produced by her late son, Terry Melcher, who the album is also dedicated to, and who is known for producing records by 60s greats like the Byrds and the Beach Boys."My Heart" includes covers of songs like "Ohio" by Leonard Bernstein and Billy Preston's "You Are So Beautiful."

"This music brings back so many memories, my dear friends who appeared on screen with me, all the wonderful animals, and of course, my darling son Terry whom I miss so much," says Day in a press release.

Proceeds from album sales will go to the Doris Day Animal Foundation, which Day founded in 1978 to promote the welfare of animals. The album was released in the UK on September 5.

The Telegraph wrote of the album, "’My Heart’ is a reminder of what a strong and distinctive vocalist Day always was, and how much feminine allure she could breathe into the most buttoned-up material, making a mockery of her virginal reputation."

Today is 11-11-11

The last time it happened, November 11, 1911, temperatures in the U.S. fell a jaw-dropping 60 degrees over the course of a single day, causing blizzards and tornadoes. For some people, it was a special day.

Cruise ship industry cruising in New Orleans


NEW ORLEANS -- It's a good time to cruise New Orleans, with three cruise ships making the city their new homeport this month.

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line is returning to the city for the first time since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

It's more than 3100 passenger ship "Voyager of the Seas" docks at the port's Julia Street ship terminal this weekend.

The "Voyager" joins Carnival Cruise Lines' 2100 passenger "Elation," which sailed out of the Erato Street terminal for the first time last weekend.

Port of New Orleans CEO Gary LaGrange said the new ships increase the passenger capacity in the city from 5,500 to 11,000 per week.

"$228 million a year is the economic impact right now," said LaGrange. "That's going to more than double with the two new ships arriving this weekend."

Carnival is also bringing its 3000 passenger "Conquest" back to New Orleans, where it made its maiden voyage in 2002.

All three new ships plan to sail out of the city year-round.

The city is now on pace to attract more than a million cruise ship passengers in 2012.

"The average passenger on our cruise ship spends almost two nights, 1.9 nights per passenger in the city," said LaGrange. "They spend about $335 a day compared to $95 a day at other ports."

Riverwalk Mall manager Frank Quinn hopes the new ships will help revive the shopping center on the New Orleans riverfront.

In recent years, the Riverwalk has struggled to attract shoppers and lost many of its anchor stores.

"I think it's an incredible opportunity for us," said Quinn. "The Julia Street cruise terminal, which hasn't been in use since 2004, that's going to be reopened this Saturday. It's directly below our food court. You're going to have thousands of passengers coming on and off the ship each Saturday and Sunday."

The three new ships join Norwegian Cruise Lines' "Norwegian Spirit," which is currently sailing seven-day cruises to the western Caribbean from New Orleans.
