Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry officially announced their engagement earlier this month, and the actual proposal sounds like it was a doozy.


Perry stopped by the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live to dish on what it was like to be proposed to by Legolas himself.

Perry said the two went to dinner––and that she expected they'd head to an art show.

"But we pulled up to a helicopter," she said. She and Bloom boarded: There was champagne on hand for a toast.

"The box was in his pocket and he had written down everything he wanted to say in a note to divert -- he was gonna pull it out while I was reading it," she said.

Things went awry after Bloom tried to pull the tiny engagement ring box out of the even tinier pocket of his jacket. His elbow hit the champagne bottle in the process. It fell to the floor of the helicopter and shattered, sending shards of glass everywhere.

"And I'm like, 'No, I'm just reading the note. I know you're not doing anything,'" she said, saying that she was able to dismount from the helicopter and meet family members once they'd landed on a rooftop without further incident.

"My whole family was there, and all my friends... he did so well," she said lovingly.

You can watch Perry recall the memory below.

Take a look at that ring, by the way.

That story's adorable... and it's a pretty cute disaster. But love is love as they say.





Perry recalled that she and Bloom first fell in love after they bonded over an In-N-Out Burger at the Golden Globe Awards a few years ago.

"He stole one off of my table. I was sitting with Denzel Washington and he took it and I was like, 'Who...oh, you're so hot. Fine, take it,'" she said. "Then I saw him at a party and I was like, 'How are those onions resting on your molars?' He was like, 'I like you.' Then, you know, cut to!"

You never know, ladies and gents. The love of your life could be a burger snatcher. Get off Tinder right now and head to your nearest fast food restaurant.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...
