Hey TGs!

It's not every day you go down to the mall and see a TG cover star, but today was one such day! Remember TG's May cover with Katy on it. Well, I just saw Katy in the flesh!

Katy Perry at Myer Sydney

I got an invite to come cover Katy Perry's appearance at Myer in Sydney. Perhaps you were there too? There were HEAPS of KatyCats there. We spent what felt like ages getting hyped and they played us a lot of songs. You know that feeling when the bassline shakes the room and makes your heart beat in time with the music? It was like that. 

Then! OMTG! Finally, the moment came - Katy appeared in a shower of glitter out of a confetti canon, I think. She had her hair short and blonde and spiky and she was in a cool, blue jacket. 

Katy Perry appears at Sydney Myer

And here's what was said: 
  • Katy will tour to promote Witness, her new album, in July-August next year. 
  • Myer is boosting her tour by giving away 8,000 tickets! Whoa! Crazy, huh? And I'm pretty sure they said each winner would get four tickets! And if my maths holds up, that means 2,000 chances to win! Myer has the deets on how you win exactly so if you want to do this, it's best to suss it out through the store - don't forget to ask Mum and Dad if you can if you want to. 
  • Katy said her goal in Australia is to eat as many meat pies as possible! Haha! I wonder whether she likes potato pies; those are my fave. 
  • Katy reminisced about the time she wore her hair in a black and white 'do and she had to smile through her tears because there were so many pins and they were hurting her. 
  • She likes Tim Tams. 
  • She thinks Australia is a fun, chilled out place. 
  • She says in her new album, you can hear her progression and how she's gotten a little more grown up. "There's purpose in everything I do... [I make[ better choices and I'm more present," she said. 
  • Naturally when she tours, she'll play all the jams you love, plus new ones too. 
  • The show will be very bright and colourful, with heaps of escapism "because the world is a strange place". 
  • She's got her own range of shoes out and they smell like watermelon!
  • Tickets are out on July 19 through Ticketek. KatyCats, are you going to her shows? Let me know in the comments!
Oh... and here are the tour dates in case you're wondering!
