Katy Perry Channels Hillary Clinton More And More With Every Outfit

Katy Perry regularly hit the campaign trail for Hillary Clinton during election season, and it seems like all that time together translated into a style shift for the singer. 

The “Chained to the Rhythm” songstress stepped out in a chic gray pantsuit on Monday in London, doing a slight twist on what Clinton herself would wear. Perry spiced up her look with a zebra-print mock turtleneck, gold jewelry and dark green heels.

Her newly platinum hair is a sharp-contrast to the Trump-like color she was sporting a few weeks ago.

Perry drew a few comparisons to Clinton after wearing a white suit and a “Persist” armband at her politically-motivated Grammys performance:

Once a Hillary supporter, always a Hillary supporter.

Chris Brown’s Ex Claims He Threatened To Kill Her

Eight years after he brutally assaulted Rihanna in a widely publicized incident, Chris Brown has been accused of physically abusing another woman: His ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

On Feb.17, Tran filed a temporary domestic violence restraining order against the Grammy-winning R&B singer, alleging that he pushed her down the stairs, punched her in the stomach and threatened to shoot her.

In the court documents, obtained by RadarOnline, Tran stated that as recently as this month, Brown was texting her death threats, and told other people that he was going to kill her. The couple split in 2015.

“He said if no one else can have me then he’s going to ‘take me out,’” she wrote, adding that Brown had also been harassing and threatening her friends. “This is why I’ve decided to finally go through with the restraining order because he is starting to take action on his words.”

The restraining order instructs Brown to stay 100 yards away from Tran, refrain from contacting her directly or indirectly, and to surrender any firearms he possesses. Tran’s mother and brother are also protected under the order.

“They are my family and I don’t want them at risk,” Tran wrote.

Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, did not return a request for comment. A court date on the restraining order is scheduled for March 9.

Also in the court documents, Tran accused Brown of physically abusing her a few years prior, but offered few details. She said that Brown punched her in the stomach twice, and pushed her down the stairs. She indicated that police were not called and no one else was present.

It’s possible that Brown was still on probation stemming from his assault on Rihanna at the time of the alleged violent incidents.

In 2009, Brown, who was 19, assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna inside a car after leaving a pre-Grammy party. According to the police statement, Brown punched Rihanna in the face repeatedly, smashed her head into the window, put her in a headlock, and constricted her breathing until she began to lose consciousness. He also bit her ear and her fingers, the statement said, and threatened to kill her.

“He had no soul in his eyes, just blank. He was clearly blacked out,” Rihanna said of the assault in an interview with Diane Sawyer later that year. “There was no person when I looked to him.”

Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault and was sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community service. A judge officially ended his probation in March 2015.

In interviews conducted early on in his career, Brown talked about seeing his mom abused by his stepfather, and the effect of domestic violence on his childhood.

“He made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself. I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, ‘I’m just gonna go crazy on him one day,’” he told Giant magazine in 2007.

That same year, he told Tyra Banks that he treats women differently because of what he experienced.

“I don’t want to go through the same thing or put a woman through the same thing that that person put my mom through,” he said.

‘Little House On The Prairie’ Star Pinpoints Why Some Child Predators Flock To Hollywood

Since 2010, “Little House on the Prairie” star Alison Arngrim has spoken publicly about the sexual abuse she endured for three years as a child. The molestation occurred before Arngrim took on the “Little House” role of villain Nellie, she says, and while abuse can happen to anyone, Arngrim tells OWN Digital that children in Hollywood are particularly vulnerable.

“See, the way child predators work, it’s like the old thing about Willie Sutton: Why do you rob banks? ‘It’s where they keep the money,’” Arngrim says. “Child predators go, ‘Well, where are they keeping the children? And where might there be some children who are not being supervised all the time by their parents?’ Oh, look ― agent, child manager, photographer, casting director. These are also things where a child predator will say, ‘Oh, wow, what if I got a job doing that? How many parents would leave their kid alone with me?’”

In Hollywood, that answer appears to be, “Plenty.”

“There were parents dropping their kids off at these guys’ houses,” Arngrim says. “Did it occur to you that maybe it’s odd for a 40-year-old guy to want that many 11-year-olds in his pool without their parents all day?”

“With show business, it’s very weird. People will get star-struck,” she continues. “If their next-door neighbor said, ‘Hi. You hardly know me, but I would like to have your children over and stay in my house and not have you there,’ you would say no… But, someone very rich, someone very famous, someone who’s an agent or a manager or a star comes up and tells you this, people say, ‘All right, let me pack a bag.’”

“Did it occur to you that maybe it’s odd for a 40-year-old guy to want that many 11-year-olds in his pool without their parents all day?”

In Arngrim’s case, her abuse was perpetrated by a relative and ended when Arngrim was 9. She never told anyone about it until she was an adult, however, despite having people around her whose support and love could have made a huge difference in her youth.

“I had people I could have told. Can you imagine if I had told Michael Landon or anyone on ‘Little House on the Prairie?’ Of course they would have done something,” she says. “But you don’t think of that when you’re a kid. You don’t know. You don’t think like a grown-up.”

Now, Arngrim is helping create a platform for people to share their stories of survival, called the Indomitable Spirit Symposium. The kick-off event will be held at Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles on Feb. 25.

“We’re gathering up these people who have these incredible stories of courage and strength and survival ― people who have overcome seemingly insurmountable odds,” Arngrim says. “[We’re] talking about how they did this. Come to this and hear… Come. Find out what we’re doing.”
