Katy Perry got her nose pierced over the weekend, but instead of just premiering the results on Instagram in a selfie featuring perfect lighting and an adorkable facial expression, Katy decided we should join her in the nose-piercing process and just uploaded video of a needle going through her nose. Umm Katy, I think this relationship might be moving a little too fast. Let’s leave a little to the imagination, shall we? Don’t start leaving the door open when you go to the bathroom or anything.
Turns out Katy already had a Parent Trap piercing experience in her youth. I’m honestly surprised she had a professional do it this time. We’ve already established that she probably should have stayed in school longer, so I wouldn’t put it past her to try to pierce her own nose at almost 30 years old. (Yeah guys, Katy Perry is almost 30.)
“Last time I did this I was on my own with a safety pin & cube of ice @ 13. This time I thought it was best I left it to the pro’s. Sorry mom (again)”
I should warn you, if you haven’t already watched the video, that not only does it contain the whole needle-through-the-nose bit, but it also contains a particularly annoying “Owwwwww” from Katy’s mouth. Even if you’re cool with the needle thing, you still might want to press mute. I should also warn you that she’s wearing a very confusing outfit that you’ll probably be scratching your head about for the rest of the day. Did she really pair a rhinestone choker with a sports bra? What is happening?
It’s also worth mentioning that Lady Gaga also posted a nose-piercing video this weekend, although hers was a “re-pierce.” Last summer these two had battling albums; this summer they have battling piercings. I’m calling it right now — next year it’ll be a chili cook-off. You mark my words, those girls will go to war, and there won’t be nearly enough cornbread to sop up all that drama.
