Want to see a Katy Perry concert? Here's how to do it, for free

Katy Perry performs onstage during the MTV Europe Music Awards 2010 live show at at the Odyssey Arena on November 6, 2011 in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Katy Perry is doing a "Katy Perry Gives Thanks" show to end her California Dreams Tour at the Staples Center, with the tickets being given away free on Facebook. It's a drawing, so you're not guaranteed to get a chance to register, but if you're interested and happen to be available the night before Thanksgiving, you can give it a shot. Each entry is eligible for up to four passes. This ends a 122-date (wait, what?!) tour.

This is the part where I feel a bit jealous of those who manage to win tickets to this show, and feel a bit guilty for winning tickets to a Katy Perry show when she was first breaking out and deciding that I didn't need to go wait around for a couple hours to hear "I Kissed A Girl" at the end. (I didn't know she was going to be a star! And, after listening to more of her music, I enjoy her work. So there.)

Katy Perry & Rebecca Black duet on 'Friday' in LA, ballad-style

At Katy Perry's Friday night L.A. concert, she welcomed very special surprise guest Rebecca Black to do a duet of Black's song "Friday." Perry introduced her as "the infamous Rebecca Black," which sounds about right.

Black also appeared in the music video for Perry's recent single "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)." They slowed "Friday" down for a brief pairing and shared about a minute-and-a-half of stage time. (I mean, come on, she's still Rebecca Black.) Perry closed the segment by yelling "I love the Internet!"
