Katy Perry brought her very own candy land to life during her California Dreams World Tour, complete with blue wigs, pin-wheel dresses and “smell-o-vision.” Now, she’s putting the cotton candy in the past, and looking to change things up when she hits the road in support of her latest chart-topper, Prism.
“[It will be] less cartoony but just as dynamic as always,” Perry said. “And it will be a feast for your eyes and for your Instagram.”
But Perry may have already given her Katy Cats a tour sneak peek with her emotional performance of “Unconditionally” at the MTV EMA. Draped in a colorful robe, Perry turned herself into a human Maypole as dancers wove patterns beneath her. As the song reached its bridge, Perry was suspended high above the stage, belting the song to a crowd of spectators.
“It’s a challenging performance; it’s unlike any of the performances I’ve done before,” Perry told MTV News on the EMA red carpet before the show. “It looks like I’m being abducted, basically … and also there’s a bit of a magic trick in it — I’m not getting sawed in half, I’ll do that later — I’ll be floating in space.”
