Pardon Us, Katy Perry, But Your #TBT Date With Riff Raff Isn't That Throwback-y

Are Riff Raff and Katy Perry a new couple? This Instagram date night photo provides compelling evidence...

New couple alert?!

Look, we have to admit, we were kinda intrigued and excited to see this Instagram photo of Katy Perry on a date with Riff Raff two days ago, which the "Dolce & Gabbana" rapper captioned: "ON A DATE WiTH KATY PERRY SHE iS PURDY."

(Full disclosure: We've met Jody Highroller himself IRL, and he's such a gentleman -- if you define gentleman as someone who asks if your mom is single right after you meet him. Which we do. #flattered)

Anyway, the "Dark Horse" singer regrammed the photo for Throwback Thursday yesterday, adding: "TBT to when I went on a date with Riff Raff aka @jodyhighroller also, regram!"

We hate to be the Instagram police, but #TBT, KP? That pic was posted two days ago, and there's no way that it took place prior to Mar. 12, when Riff dyed his hair that bright turquoise color. That's right -- WE KNOW WHAT'S UP.

Maybe it just felt like a throwback to Katy because she's in love and it feels like an eternity has passed since their date? IDK, but don't say we didn't warn you, Katy Perry... and also Katy Perry's mom.

Oh, wait. Maybe that’s actually Ellie Goldberg Ellie Goulding? If so, we apologize for calling you the worst at disguises!
