Here's what's being talked about in pop culture:

• Singer Jackie Evancho, who sang the National Anthem at Donald Trump's inauguration, has asked (via Twitter) for a meeting with Trump to discuss transgender rights — after the president issued an order revoking federal protections for trans students. (Evancho's sister is transgender, by the way.) [The Hollywood Reporter]

• Katy Perry threw some shade at Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May at a performance at the BRIT Awards last night — with skeleton puppets dressed like the world leaders. [The Huffington Post]

• Radio and TV host Alan Colmes has died at the age of 66. For years, Colmes was the left-wing foil to Sean Hannity on Fox, where his role became liberalism's version of the Washington Generals. [Los Angeles Times]
