Katy Perry channeled her inner-Mary Katherine Gallagher last night on "Fallon."
And then there are the other times... times when Katy ditches the butterfly bullsh** and gets real. Which, in Katy Perry Land, means channeling Molly Shannon's "SNL" character and not-so-repressed Catholic schoolgirl, Mary Katherine Gallagher, on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon"! Because pleated skirts, pigtails, and knee-highs!! And smelly armpits! (Although we're pretty sure Katy's incapable of B.O. -- heck, for all we know, her pits smell like freshly baked cronuts.)
Watch Katy Perry on "Jimmy Fallon" after the jump.
Anyway, it wasn't just Katy's dead-on MKG ensemble that made us wanna be all "SUPAHSTAH!!!" We were also LOL-ing our faces off over those nerdy, awkward "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" faces Katy kept making while playing a game of Taboo with Jimmy! That's Katy for you: never afraid to be a gorgeous goofball.
Alternately, maybe we misinterpreted Katy's entire shtick. Perhaps she rocked that leather, pleated, "Dark Horse"-inspired skirt to pay homage to Britney Spears' schoolgirl look circa "Baby One More Time"? I mean, gotta keep the crowd guessing now that she's burned all of her wigs and chucked all of those candy-themed onesies!
Either way, we commend Katy for having enough chutzpah to rock pigtails AND knee-high socks after the age of 14. NEVER LOOK BACK, KATY! (Except for when standing in front of folding chairs, of course.)
