At least she still has her day job.
Pop-star Katy Perry was booed this week when she walked in a fashion show for Moschino. Runway photographers were upset that Perry held up the fashion show by being late, according to EOnline.com.
But Perry didn’t let a few rude photographers interrupt her, reports EOnline.com. She quickly shut down their booing with an insult of her own and struck a pose before leaving the runway.

Two Dead on 'Captain Phillips Ship'

Two American security guards were found dead this week aboard the Maersk Alabama, a merchant ship made famous in a 2009 pirate attack off the coast of Somalia, the story of which was later turned into movie starring Tom Hanks.
The deaths of both men remain under investigation, according to Maersk, a commercial shipping line based in Copenhagen, which confirmed that their bodies were found on the ship, which was docked in Port Victoria, Seychelles.
The men, both contractors employed by Trident Group, joined the ship's crew on Jan. 29. The names of the men were not provided.
Maersk Alabama was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009, and later rescued by the U.S. Navy. The event was fictionalized in "Captain Phillips."
Activist Nun Sentenced
Sister Megan Rice, an 84-year-old peace activist, was sentenced to nearly three years in prison for breaking into a nuclear weapons complex where weapons-grade uranium was held.
The July 2012 break-in raised security concerns at the plant, prompting it to be shut down; security forces were retrained and contractors replaced, according to the Associated Press.
Although sentencing guidelines called for Rice to serve six years, the AP reported that the nun implored the judge to impose a life sentence.
"To remain in prison for the rest of my life would be the greatest gift you could give me," she said.
