Katy Perry spends $50k on cooking lessons

The California Gurl has splashed out on home cooking lessons with chef Cat Cora.

Katy was at a charity auction after the Oscars, with proceeds going to Sir Elton John's AIDS Foundation.

The 27-year-old singer entered a bidding war with film producer Steve Tisch for the lessons at a viewing party, before the pair agreed to split the final $100,000 winning bid.

'Katy emptied her purse out jokingly for the cameras,' an insider reportedly explained, 'before she and Steve agreed to share the prize for $100,000.

'Katy got up and hugged him delightedly,' continued the source. 'She seemed a bit tipsy, but not messy at all.'

A number of stars turned out for the event, including Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler.
