Katy Perry tricks museum-goers with her ‘disembodied’ head
She slumped disco balls across world cities, as well as baked cherry pies to introduce her new single “Bon Appetit,” but Katy Perry’s novel approach to promote her music goes on and on.
With the help of Vanity Fair, the pop star tricked random visitors at New York’s The Whitney Museum of American Art by transforming her cover art for “Bon Appetit” into a real museum art piece. While Vanity Fair’s Derek Blasberg was luring visitors to check Santa Barbara-based artist Katheryn Hudson’s (Perry’s real name) exhibit, Perry surfaced her head in the middle of a fruit platter to deceive them.
The unsuspecting visitors were ushered into a dark room where Blasberg lifted a metal dome covering Perry’s head. At one point, Perry joked that she was Miley Cyrus to a fan asking if she was actually Katy Perry.
Perry returns from years of career hiatus with her singles “Chained to the Rhythm” and “Bon Appetit.” Soon, she will sit on the judges’ panel of ABC’s reboot of “American Idol” and drop her album entitled “Witness” this coming June. Gianna Francesca Catolico /ra
