Katy Perry made an appearance at the Occupy Wall Street protest in Manhattan on Saturday. The singer, who went to the site along with her husband, Russell Brand, and music mogul Russell Simmons, documented the visit and promoted the Occupy Wall Street live stream on her Twitter feed. The duo downplayed their flashy images for the occasion, bundling up and wearing sunglasses and beanie caps.

Brand had already visited the protest earlier in the week, and he published his thoughts on the movement on his website. Simmons, clearly a fan of the protest, previously brought Kanye West down to Zuccotti Park to take in the scene.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
