For the past couple of months, Katy Perry has been working pretty hard to change her image. She gave an interview where she stated that things were “about to get real f-cking dark,” and a few days after that she showed up at an event in leather boots, a leather jacket, dark makeup, and a bad attitude. Throughout March and April, she wore a mean ol’ scowl everywhere she went, and she even changed her blue hair to a way more sinister shade of purple. She made it clear that yes, things were getting real f-cking dark.
But now it’s May, and I suspect the transformation is complete. Here’s another picture of Katy from last night:
Oh wow, Katy, you look so dark and mysterious! Maybe we can go get coffee sometime – not at Starbucks though, because that’s so mainstream – and I can read through your poetry, and then we can discuss how hard it is to live in the world when no one understands you. I would say that it would be a really cool experience, but I don’t want to offend you. I know that nothing’s cool when you have such a blazing fire burning inside your heart.
And just because it’s Friday, here’s a bonus picture of Katy staring off into the distance as she tries to articulate what On the Road meant to her:
What do you think of Katy’s new look?
