Katy Perry Reveals Chandelier Dress At Met Gala Weighed 40 Pounds
During an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America, Katy Perry was all about fashion.
The 34-year-old entertainer also talked about American Idol, her latest Katy Perry Collections shoe line and dished about wearing a dress with an actual chandelier surrounding it at the 2019 Met Gala.
"I didn’t go to any Finishing school or anything like that, but I really had to walk a straight line," Katy revealed. "I wanted to say hi to all my friends, but even if someone looked at me for long enough, I’d start to teeter. I was nervous I was going to timber at one point."
"It weighed 40 pounds," Katy said. "It was easier to walk as a cheeseburger because it was very padded, all that special sauce."
As for her cheeseburger costume, which she wore to the after party, she said she ended up on the floor on purpose. "I’m kind of a practical joker, so all night, I would kinda fall down a little bit, like ‘I can’t get up!’" she laughed. "And everybody was like, ‘Oh, no there’s a cheeseburger down in the corner!’ and I’d be like, ‘It’s part of the act.’"
Katy showed off the whimsical new line of shoes from her KP Collection, including scented sandals and a shoe that looks like a cheeseburger. Katy revealed she likes to refer to her shoes "shoe-stoppers." "They stop traffic and start conversations," said. Then the talk turned to which shoes Katy might wear when she walks down the aisle with her fiancé, Orlando Bloom.
"Someone decided to put up with me for the rest of my life!" Katy said triumphantly. As for the shoes, she admitted, "Well, I guess I should get started on that! I haven’t figured that part out."
"We’re definitely, like, enjoying the moment," she added. "But I figure if I do design a shoe, it would probably have something to do with flowers and blooming."
Perry, who in the midst of filming American Idol Season 17, said she’s enjoying her time judging the singing competition. "I am just having such a blast mentoring these kids and supporting them and lifting them up," she said.
