I rarely speak of new music here on The Egg (because I’m rarely aware of it).
But Katy Perry has been hard to avoid. She’s everywhere. I’ve seen her all over the talk show circuit promoting her new album “Teenage Dream,” and more recently hosting the Teen Choice Awards, which I’m not ashamed to say I watched.
(Okay, maybe I have a little shame.)
If you haven’t seen the album cover, Katy is lying in a cloud of pink cotton candy, which I assume inspired the scented CD.
That’s right. When you open it up, your nose is tickled by the sugary-sweet smell of everyone’s favorite carnival/circus/baseball game confection. Even if you’ve gotten sick on cotton candy in the past — hasn’t everyone? – it will no doubt inspire a memory of a good day.
Which begs the question: why aren’t more things out there scented?
In the movie “Legally Blonde,” Elle Woods scents her resume and prints it on pink paper. She says it ‘gives it a little something.’ Her instructor and future husband both seem to agree.
What other items would benefit from good smells? We obviously add scent to detergents and candles and body splash. But what about movie posters on display at the theater? Or Playbills handed out at Broadway shows? Or how about best-selling hardback novels?
Would scent add ambiance or irritation? Inspire comprehension or incite allergy attacks?
Add a ‘little something’ or ultimately, take away?

Kristen Wiig is on the talk show circuit.
She’s promoting the MaGruber movie, which opens in theaters May 21st. Critics say it’s the funniest movie to come out of “Saturday Night Live,” and the trailers I’ve seen so far support that.
It’s great to see Kristen doing more film work. She’s one of — if not the – funniest women on television today, and has managed to steal scenes with the small roles she’s had to date in movies like Knocked Up and Ghost Town.
So, I was excited when she told Jimmy Fallon last night that she is shooting a movie this summer that she co-wrote. I could only imagine the hilariously creative starring role that Kristen would write for herself.
Get this — it’s a wedding movie. Circa Bride Wars. But she’s not the bride. She’s the friend of the bride, fighting to plan the wedding for her bride friend.
Wow. That’s amazingly original. It’s so original, I used a recent, poorly rated and received movie to describe it.
Don’t get me wrong — I want it to be amazing. With Kristen and Maya Rudolph as her co-star, it has tremendous talent and potential.
I just hope the movie can transcend its very tired stereotype.
