US pop singer Katy Perry utilized her day off between gigs at Air Canada Center to dig into Toronto’s past by paying visit to the Black Creek Pioneer Village. Katy is on her Prismatic World Tour currently; she uploaded a snap of herself on Instagram from the well known museum along with the caption that said: ‘Took my time machine to a 19th century village and still got in trouble.’
Situated in Jane Street and Steeles Avenue West area, Black Creek Pioneer Village is a tribute to the pioneering roots of the Toronto area. Katy would play the 3rd of 3 shows at Air Canada Centre earlier on Monday before going to Pittsburgh.
Probably the green hair dye is rubbing on her too much. Katy was seen sporting a bizarre see through green dress as she explored an historic Canadian pioneer village. The twenty nine year old Teenage Dream star was living a fashion incubus with the highly punk ensemble as she walked through the tourist place while on a break from Prismatic World Tour.
The singer, thankfully sported a black 1 piece lingerie garment to save her modesty, though she was still cubing with catastrophe considering the fact that she was walking through rain. She was also donning black colored leather neck collar that she had days earlier.
James Hetfield, the Metallica frontman, has a series of pastimes and hobbies – one of which is hunting. James has experience in bear hunting and this would be the subject of the forthcoming History series named The Hunt. He would be the narrator for 8 week series that would premier on 8th June, Sunday at 10 pm ET.
A media release stated that the TV series records the hunt on the Kodiak Island in Alaska for Kodiak brown bear, which is one of the largest land animals on Earth. They could grow to be twelve feet tall and one thousand and five hundred pounds with razor sharp claws and powerful jaws. The average hunt stays for ten days, and there is less than a fifty percent winning rate in bagging a bear.
In a year, less than five hundred tags are issued, and in the world people live in these days, most hunters of the Kodiak brown bear are old school. They use black powder single shot rifles or bow-and-arrow.
Last week, James played at the Acoustic 4 A Cure benefit in San Francisco. He tuned in some tracks solo and also collaborated with Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and Joe Satriani of Chickenfoot for a medley of ‘Turn the Page’ as well as Green Day’s ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams.’
James was there at the Bob Dylan‘s ‘Rainy Day Women #12 & 35’ grand finale. The Metallica frontman joined Armstrong, Sammy Hagar, Satriani, and Train’s Pat Monahan and Heart‘s Nancy Wilson in the all-star jam session.
