Think twice before you talk ish about Katy Perry!
She might actually respond to you!
Oh no he didn't!

Michael J. Fox joined forces with a host of comedians, musicians, filmmakers, actors and politicians on Saturday night to raise money for fighting Parkinson's disease.
"A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson's…" combined music and comedy to raise $4.1 million for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research!
The evening at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel New York City was hosted by The Daily Show's John Oliver and featured comedian Mike Birbiglia with special guest Ricky Gervais!
Guests were also entertained by rapper Kid Cudi and special musical guest Joan Jet, who was able to lure Michael onto the stage for a rare Back To The Future moment where he shredded his guitar alongside the rock icon.
Sounds like a blast and we wish we were there!

Ricky Gervais just recently got back into the swing of social networking, and he hasn't been slouching. He's actually used the internet as a way to announce two new shows, one of them being a Derek Noakes show!
If you don't remember Derek Noakes, he's a character that Ricky played back in the 90's — a very light hearted, mentally challenged comedian, "who loves animals and still lives with his mum."
You can see the sketch above.
Here's what the other show is about:
"We are planning a pilot of my show idea 'The Short Way Round.' Basically I send Karl around the world on a bike with Warwick in the basket on the front. It's not Shakespeare but it's f*cking funny right? The 3 of us did a photo shoot together last week. I may post a sneak look soon."
Sounds pretty great! And we're sure both will be absolutely hilarious!
Ricky Gervais used to poke fun at his own weight — but now he’s in too good of shape!
He was spotted going for a jog yesterday afternoon in North London, looking really out of breath.
That means he’s working hard!
Also, running releases tons of endorphins, which makes you happy, which will help him write funny comedy!

Comedians are young at heart, and Ricky Gervais revealed that he didn’t start eating veggies until he turned 48.
And he’s lost a ton of weight as a result.
"After Christmas 2009 I got my act together a little bit. I work out every day now and I eat my vegetables. I didn't eat vegetables at all until about 18 months ago and it used to annoy people. Jane would give me a soup or stew and I would devour everything that was meat or gravy. But I'm learning to alter my tastes and I'm liking the experience. I thought vegetables were boring."
Gervais said that he got his act together after he realized that health complications from his weight could end his career.
"I don't want to blow it. I don't want to go, 'Oh f**k! You idiot. So now, everything's great. And you're going to die at the age of 51 of a heart attack, you fat idiot.' "
LOL! We’re glad he got his act together!
