Someone paid $160,000 to go to Disneyland with Katy Perry

Rich Fury/Getty Images for amfARKaty Perry was honored for her charity work Thursday night in Beverly Hills at a gala thrown by amfAR, the organization that supports research to find a cure for HIV and AIDS.  But Katy also helped raise thousands for the cause by offering herself up for auction.

According to USA Today, Katy and her boyfriend Orlando Bloom each personally donated $5,000 to amfAR, and then she told the crowd, "I would like to offer an experience for anyone who is really, really rich, to go to Disneyland with me because it’s my favorite place in the whole entire world."

Katy offered "six tickets, and lunch at the very exclusive [Disney] Club 33, because of course I’m a member.” The winning bid was $160,000.

During the gala, Katy told the crowd, "Today I understand that a courageous life is the only one worth living."

She was also serenaded by former Glee star Darren Criss, who played a medley of her own hits for her. 

Among the songs Darren performed were "I Kissed a Girl, "Last Friday Night," "Hot 'N Cold," "Roar" and, of course, "Teenage Dream" -- fitting because the first look most of us ever got of the actor was on the 2010 episode of Glee where, as Blaine, he sang "Teenage Dream" with the Dalton Academy Warblers.

Did both Pink *and* Rihanna say no to the Super Bowl?

Nicholas Hunt/Getty Images for NARASOn Thursday, US Weekly reported that Rihanna had nixed an offer to perform at the Super Bowl this coming February because she disagrees with the NFL's stance on players kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.  Now, Entertainment Tonight reports that another pop superstar said no to the offer too: Pink.

As US Weekly also reported, a source tells ET that  Rihanna was asked first, but said no because "she stands with the players and Colin Kaepernick." 

"The offer and exposure would have been great for Rihanna as she’s planning a new album and tour but she stuck to what’s right in her eyes," the source adds.

But a second source tells ET that the NFL approached both Rihanna and Pink -- who, as you may recall, sang the national anthem at Super Bowl LII earlier this year.

According to that source, both women ended up passing, but it was because negotiations were taking too long; the source said Kaepernick's name didn't come up in those discussions.

Rumor now has it that Maroon 5 will be playing the show on February 3, 2019 in Atlanta, but that hasn't been confirmed.
