Close your eyes and mentally picture a bendy, paper doll version of singer/actress Zooey Deschanel. (Or, better, yet, just check out the image above).
Got it? Rightyho! Now grab your Zooey doll, douse her with liquid eyeliner, remove her bizarro tambourine and replace her peachy-colored lip gloss with a rosy red lipstick. Next, liberally bedazzle her bust region, brush her bangs out of her face (and swap that weird, rose-shaped scrunchie for a giant, glittery butterfly barrette) then tilt her head forward until she's staring directly at you, wondering WTF is going on. Then pat yourself on the back: you're just officially recreated Katy Perry's vamped-out disco queen look from the 2008 VMAs.
Granted, Katy and Zooey have always had that dark-haired, blue-eyed, fair-skinned lady of leisure thing going on, but it wasn't 'til Katy winked at us in her costume-y, Xanadu-inspired two-piece last Sunday that we came to an important realization: Katy and Zooey MAY ACTUALLY BE THE SAME PERSON.
+ Think about it: When was the last time you actually saw them in the same room together, at the exact same time? (Answer: Never). Check out this pic of Katy from the VMAs, compare them with this snapshot of Zooey from FNMTV -- Katy and Zooey's band She & Him were on the same episode of FNMTV, which was really confusing -- and watch their videos below. Then admit that they're either (a) identical twins, or else (b) aliens from some faraway planet where no one uses self-tanner -- and EVERYONE can sing.
