Now it can be told: Katy Perry travelled 14 hours from California to perform Down Under (no pun intended). And I travelled 10 hours just to see her too… three hours to Singapore to meet with the Katy Perry Hotmail contest winners and another 7.5 hours to Australia, on a turbulent plane ride at that! 😀
But it was all worth it because as you well know….. Katy Perry rocks!
Can’t blame the young fans for having their own culture of Katy Perry adulation. On May 5, 2011, the big concert date in Brisbane, the adoring fans of the California Gurl came to the Brisbane Entertainment Centre all dressed up for the part : cupcake bras, candy dresses, blue wigs, and all…. KP’s trademark is to wear them with all the colors.

The lady in the dice dress told me she made her own costume for the occasion.
Did I say blue wig? Count in the pink wigs too:)
It seems the average age of Katy’s fans are from 13 to 15 years old. I wished the Philippine fans dressed up like this, if not for Katy then for Justin Bieber 🙂
A stylish mom in LV even brought along her ten-year old daughter.
The lucky winners of the Katy Perry contest in Asia who were flown to Australia by Hotmail and Warner Music rejoice before watching the concert: Sonny with partner Cheng Cheng, Lynn with daughter Sydney, and Joy with good friend Yvonne. Now I realize, it really pays to join these online contests… you never know if you might win 😉
… and am shown here with fellow bloggers Budiey, the Sensasi Selebriti, from Malaysia and Adrian Seet of Superadrianme in Singapore with our uber-nice host Tamara Yee of WindowsLive/Hotmail (not in photo is the energetic Amy Kurian). It was a pleasure meeting you guys!
This picture says it all… what a fun night we had! Till the next time KP… hopefully in Manila:)
