ClearChannel's iHeartRadio Album Release Party with Katy Perry
To celebrate the release of Katy Perry's latest album "PRISM"—and her birthday!—Katy Kats got a sweet treat on Tuesday night when they tuned in to Clear Channel's iHeartRadio Album Release Party with Katy Perry. Live streamed exclusively on Yahoo Screen from the new iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles, the singer radiated light and love as she sang tracks from the album, chatted with the night's MC Mario Lopez and answered fan questions in the intimate setting. Clad in a cellophane-like, white iridescent skater dress, Perry's new penchant for everything '90s was on full display – with matching hologram belt, nails and microphone, deep purple lipstick and chunky platform Mary Janes.
The event kicked off with a rousing acoustic rendition of her eighth #1 hit, "Roar," followed by a sultry version of "Dark Horse" and later took an impressive dive into "This Moment." The standouts of the night by far were the stunning ballad "Unconditionally" and the moving "By The Grace of God," both of which shone like lights through a prism in their acoustic setting.
As promised, the night's theme was certainly "revealing," as the stripped down versions of her songs revealed the incredible power behind Perry's voice, and the Q&As revealed quite a few interesting tidbits about Katy Perry! Here are some of our favorites:
1. Her odd mementos from Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus
Asked what she always carries in her purse, Perry revealed that she actually totes empty purses - and then revealed a surprising detail on top of that fact. Laughing, she told Lopez, "The first time I was at the Grammys, I shared a dressing room with Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift. I asked for a lock of hair from each. I put little bows around them and put them in my empty purse and carried it around with me." If you're going to get a memento from some fellow chart-topping artists, why not go for the eBay gold? "That was really creepy, but awesome! And that's my secret. And I'm a freak," Perry joked.
2. She has worn makeup to bed for a guy
Womankind sighed with relief when Perry leveled with the audience that even she, a woman who people would die to look like, has been guilty of wearing makeup to bed! When speaking about her emotional new single "Unconditionally," she spoke of loving a person for who they really are and especially loving yourself for who you really are; something she really took to heart in the past year. With new love in her life, she's now unafraid to show her true face—and no more bedtime makeup!
