    Katy Perry Revealed The Way Orlando Bloom Proposed And TBH It Was A Shambles

    The story includes a big box, ripped pockets, and broken champagne bottles.

    Katy Perry probably had a better Valentine's Day than all of us combined as her boyfriend, Orlando Bloom, got down on one knee and popped the question. All together now — awwww!

    The couple announced the engagement with matching Instagram posts the following day, both with super cute captions.

    Meanwhile, on the other side of the Valentine's Day spectrum, I was sat on my sofa wearing pizza-stained PJs while watching Bridget Jones's Diary. Oh, how the other half live.

    Apparently, if you want to secure a date with one of the hottest men on the planet, all you need to do is wait for him to steal your In-N-Out burger before saying...
