Katy Perry keeps Taylor and Miley's hair in her purse for good luck... it's The Dredge
Jamie Doran’s the new Grey, and Nicky’s a Dad again. All that and the rest of the day’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

Katy Perry has revealed that she once kept a lock of Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift’s hair in her handbag. The singer owned up to the bizarre custom during a fan Q&A after a release party for her new album, Prism.

The hair theft happened during her first time at the Grammy Awards, where she was sharing a dressing room with the two.

One of the first times I went to the Grammys, I got to share a dressing room with Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift and I asked them for a lock of their hair from each one of them, which is totally creepy, but awesome.

Or just creepy.

I put little bows on them individually and put them in my purse. And that was my little secret. I’m a freak!
