Is Katy Perry becoming a Kardashian? If an image Perry posted to social media is any indication, the 31-year-old singer is ready to join the Kardashian club. For the photo, the "Chained to the Rhythm" singer wore a pink latex outfit and long blonde braids much like a look Kim Kardashian began sporting in recent months. Perry's makeup contouring looked flawless for the photo, and her skin seemed to glisten. Take a look:
The photo was one of two pictures Katy Perry posted to her Instagram account to show off the dramatic moment. Perry's makeup artist, Hung Vanngo, posted one of the photos to his social media as well to document the work. Perry captioned her image "Katy Kardashian," earning her likes from both Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner. In fact, Kardashian even tossed some flattering emojis Perry's way.
It remains unclear whether this photo and its counterpart are recent or images from a series Katy Perry completed before she chopped off her hair for a shorter pixie cut earlier this month. We assume they are recent because she captioned one photo "Drinks unicorn drink once" as a funny reference to how she tried the Unicorn Frappucino from Starbucks the other day. (In other words, the sweet drink turned Perry into the most glamorous version of herself.) If she did take the image recently, her hairstylists must have had their work cut out--no pun intended--because Perry's current hair is super short. Still, Perry's stylists can chalk this look up as a success because Perry looks fun and her hair seems realistic.
But all the controversy aside, Katy Perry looks great in this photo. Besides, she has indicated over the years that she is a fan of the Kardashians. For example, she complimented Kris Jenner at the 2015 Met Gala and called her "the mother of everyone." She also commended Keeping Up with the Kardashians for reintroducing the world to Bruce Jenner, who was in the process of transitioning genders to become Caitlyn Jenner. Perry indicated that the show helped to evolve the public consciousness of the transgender community by highlighting the story. So, it seems like Perry simply wanted to pay tribute to the famous family in a small way.
To us, this image looks like Katy Perry having fun with her makeup artists and hairstylists. In fact, we think the long blonde braids are more akin to Cammy from the video game Street Fighter than Kim Kardashian. The pink latex is a bit much, but otherwise, it is great to see Perry happy and showing off her artistic side for her fans.
