Katy Perry recently shocked the public who interpreted her then new appearance as Justin Bieber-influenced. Now, with another surprising transformation, many have seen a lot of Kardashian in the Californian’s latest Instagram posts.
The 32-year-old which is due to release a new album this coming summer seems to have been going through somewhat of a self-discovery journey including experimenting with different musical styles, but also being more open about her own sexuality.
The Instagram post which kicked off the Justin Bieber comparisons:
Only a few days later, Perry paid a tribute to reality TV restaurateur Guy Fieri with another makeover:
In February, the singer and songwriter released the lead single from her upcoming album titled Chained to the Rhythm. A collaboration with Skip Marley, the track reached number one in Mexico and number four in the United States.
Following the song’s release, Spotify announced it would run a promotional campaign leading up to a summer 2017 release of her fifth album.
Could it be that this latest Kardashian-controversy is another promotional tool for the upcoming release?
Talking to Ryan Seacrest last year, Perry told him that she was “not rushing” her next album, adding “I’m just having a lot of fun, but experimenting and trying different producers, and different collaborators, and different styles”.
Seems like same goes for her looks. But after all, is that so bad?
These latest transformations might be part of a bigger change in the star’s life, with Perry recently opening up about her sexuality and how growing up in a very religious family led her to try and ‘pray the gay away’ when she was younger.
“I did know I was curious and that sexuality was not black and white,” the 32-year-old famously said at the 2017 Human Rights Campaign Gala.
During the Gala last monght, the singer was honored with the National Equality Award for her efforts as a LGBTQ+ rights campaigner.
Perry was recognized for “her compelling advocacy, from the stage to the campaign trail, has had a profound effect on the lives of LGBTQ people – and in particular, young people.”
