Normally, the Monday before a long weekend is, like, the worst. The weekend is very far and it feels like each day is 400 hours long. Today, a Monday before a long weekend (the first of the summer, WHATUP!), is a different story thanks to Katy Perry, Madonna, and V magazine. Katy and Madonna cover V’s Summer 2014 issue, dressed in matching black skirts and jackets.
While neither is fully featured on the other’s cover, their legs and a whip (I think?) are. Katy wears a full leather outfit, decorated with safety pins. Her hair is green, though only on the bottom—as an expert in Katy’s wig collection, I can confidently say this is a wig. Katy loves green wigs these days.

Madonna is similarly outfitted, though instead of safety pins she has subtle satin stripes across her jacket and skirt. She has on leopard-print driving gloves and tights with runs in them—if you’re anything like me, you’ll take comfort in knowing that Madge also rips her tights. Stars: They’re just like us. Madonna’s hair is serving up some serious Bettie Page vibes, a look Katy is quite familiar with.
While the two have not collaborated on a song (yet, amirite?), they have worked together on Madonna’s Art for Freedom Initiative. Katy has also been covering “Vogue” on her Prismatic World Tour, so maybe the duo are hinting at just how well they work together? We’ll keep our fingers crossed.
You can preorder the issue now on V’s website and it’ll be in your hands by Memorial Day. Perfect long weekend reading!
