PREACH IT! Hey, Katy, Celine, Portia, thanks for sharing! Or not.

It's been quite the banner week for celebrity oversharing. And we're not even talking about David Arquette. That oversharing happened, like, a week ago. This is a brand-new slew of way-too-personal stuff that stars think we need to know.

Such as? Hey, glad you didn't ask.

Katy Perry wants everybody to know that she's amazing in the sack. “Like Ludacris rapped, 'I'm a lady in the street and a freak in the bed,' " she told Now Magazine. "I can't rate myself, but if you ask [husband] Russell [Brand], I'm sure he'd give me a ten out of ten."

Meanwhile, Portia DeGeneres is telling all about her past bout with anorexia, as part of a publicity junket for her new memoir. "It wasn't that I was proud of it," she told Oprah Winfrey. "But it was certainly a recognition for my self-control. I definitely had some pretty amazing willpower to get down to 82 pounds. And that's what I was holding on to. I didn't think about anything else."

What else? Oh: Mariah Carey feels like throwing up right now. Katherine Heigl had a bumpy honeymoon period.

And one more thing, in case you missed it, which you probably did not. Celine Dion had twins, but she really needs you to know that she also had a miscarriage.

We'll keep all this in mind next time these same stars demand their privacy at some difficult time.
