Here’s how this happened: Katy Perry’s staying at a hotel in Australia. A high school prom is being held in the ballroom of the hotel. Katy Perry gets wasted. Katy Perry crashes prom.
Ok, it happened a little more adorably than that. Katy was wandering drunkenly through the hotel when she heard “California Gurls” playing somewhere. When she discovered the prom, she grabbed a microphone and serenaded the students, then hung out with them for about ten minutes before her bodyguards made her leave.
Here are some quotes from the students about this magical night:
“It was towards the end of the night and everyone was having a good time. Then Katy Perry decides to walk in and crash our formal!”
“She appeared slightly drunk and was stumbling a little.”
“She was dancing and laughing with students until the end of the song when she was subtly whisked away by her security guards. Everyone went nuts and it was the perfect ending to our evening.”
I was trying to think of a comparison, someone on Katy Perry’s level who could have crashed my prom to make it similarly newsworthy, realism notwithstanding. I think it would be Rihanna, but not “Rude Boy” Rihanna, more like “SOS” Rihanna. What about you guys? What pop star might have drunkenly crashed your prom?
