So how will the Prism singer get to Brooklyn's Barclays Center for the 9 o'clock show?
In a new TV promo, she takes a cue from Miley Cyrus, who got dirty slinking through the tunnels of New York City. Perry descends into the subway, her loyal Katy Cats at her back. Leopard-print and tiger stripes are in abundance, on crop tops, muscle tanks and high-waisted skirts. Before she catches the D train with her growlin' gang, Katy turns heads on the streets with her fashionable crew, wearing creepers, knee-highs, a plaid skirt and pitch-black hair.
Granted, she has more luxurious transportation at hand; she came to NYC in her gold semi Monday morning.
But in the promo, Katy made her entrance into the graffiti'd neighborhood by crawling out of a manhole. But how did she get underground? Well, you know, she's been channeling a darker persona lately, burning her candy-colored wig and burying her California Gurl, so maybe that's just how she rolls. In manholes with the cool kids.
So off to Brooklyn Katy Perry goes — Jay Z-style. We'll see you there!
