Katy Perry Showcases Her New Hair: ‘I Want To Redefine Want It Means To Be Feminine’
Following her shocking split from former beau Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry made her first public appearance at the iHeart Radio Awards on Sunday and was red carpet ready with a brand new look.
Performing her latest single ‘Chained to the Rhythm’, the 32-year old look happy and determined to move on from her relationship with Bloom, which lasted just under a year.
Perry showed off her brand new ‘do at the awards, with her blonde pixie-cut locks doing all the talking as she arrived at the event.
Talking to host Elvis Duran, Katy had this to say about her statement look:
I’m trying to get more attention, obviously. You can just grow it back. Honestly, I tried to take my full head of hair platinum and I had a lot of breakage. I’ve always wanted to look like Miley Cyrus. I’ve always wanted to have that pixie haircut, so I said, ‘Let’s just go for it”.
The singer went on to talk about how she wants to reinvent what society considers as feminine, saying,
I feel like there’s a new wave, a new authentic vibe coming in and I think this matches. I want to redefine what it means to be feminine. Look at Scarlett Johansson, who’s one of the most beautiful women in the world. We have the same haircut and I saw her at an Oscars party and was like, ‘I’m doing it.’ You’re hot, you can be hot and look great with this kind of hair. Why not?
It seems the pop star, who first rose to fame in 2008 with hit single ‘I Kissed A Girl’, is in a good place right now despite the unexpected breakup from the Lord of the Rings actor.
Talking to Ryan Seacrest later on in the evening, she revealed,
I’m 32 now and I feel great. I’m really accepting of myself and I’ve done a little work in that area and it’s really paying off because I’m having fun and feeling free. I feel the most authentic I’ve ever been.
Bloom and Perry debuted their relationship to the world at the 2016 Golden Globes, and the pair seemed totally loved up until their recent split.
The 32-year old film star even joined Katy’s family for Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations last year, as well as the ex-couple going on several romantic holidays together when they were dating.
Perry addressed the split on Twitter, clearing up rumours of any hostility between her and Orlando.
Other stars to attend the 2017 iHeart Radio Awards included Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and Fifth Harmony.
