Katy Perry is now the most popular person on Twitter. The singer has replaced Justin Bieber as the person with the most followers on the social media platform - but just barely. As of Monday (November 04), Perry had roughly 46,545,000 followers; Bieber, 46,517,000. Bieber has been the record holder for nine months.
More bad news for Bieber, the singer was pelted with a water bottle while performing in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Bieber was in the middle of a song when he was hit with the bottle, apparently thrown by someone in the audience, which knocked the microphone out of his hand. Bieber walked off stage after getting hit, looking visibly annoyed.
Martin Scorsese was honored in Los Angeles at the annual Art + Film Gala. The director, who was joined by Leonardo DiCaprio, was praised for helping save the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's film program.
Drew Barrymore has reason to celebrate. The singer is pregnant with her second child. Barrymore and her husband, Will Kopelman, already have a daughter, Olive, born in September 2012. No word yet on the due date for baby number two.
Finally, "Ender's Game" battled to the top of the North American box office. The film, a futuristic story of children forced to fight an enemy race, took in 28 million dollars in ticket sales during its first three days in theaters.
