Katy Perry’s Perth-ect Performance

Yep, Katy said it! She has a daggy sense of humour and I love it!

I was very impressed at the opening night of Katy’s Australian Prismatic tour by her amazing vocals which were highlighted by fireworks, smoke, flashing neon lights and a lot more cats than I ever thought there would be…image

She first appeared in all her neon brilliance from the middle of the main stage singing “Roar'”surrounded by dancers dressed in multicoloured lights and holding tribal spears. Songs progressed to an egyptian theme with “Dark Horse”, her dancing mummy ladies with giant balloon bums and boobs had me in stitches all the way!

Katy’s fans are called “Katy Kats” which may explain why Katy dressed up as a full on cats-the-musical pink glittery cat costume for the song “Hot n Cold” with an amusing cat cartoon on the big screen.

Only Katy would also have giant emoji remote controlled balloons hovering over the crowd, one a giant poo, another labelled “Katy’s Taco” while she bounced around in a blow up car singing “California gurls”.

Dance camera surprises

Many costume changes were carefully executed with entertainment in between, including a dance cam, focussing on sections of the crowd who were all equally surprised and excited to be on the big screen- or pretending that they weren’t dancing especially well for the camera.

A scary but beautiful moment was when dancers ran a thin floaty material over the centre crowd, to simulate clouds, while Katy was “Walking On Air” above, hoisted high into the air.

Back on the ground again, Katy talked about her garden at home and what she liked to grow (not weed as one crowd member yelled) and then ‘grew’ a guitar and a pizza. Katy admitted she was in fact allergic to gluten but dreamt of pizza constantly, even imagining that the umbrella of sunflowers above her was actually a pepperoni pizza!

One lucky fan from the crowd was brought on stage to claim the gluten filled pizza, 11 year old Shakayla. Katy congratulated her, commenting that Shakayla was

a nicer name than Shakira and also to watch her body because “your body changes”. I believe Katy recently celebrated a milestone birthday, she looked fantastic but I’m still not sure what colour her real hair is- Katy remarked “why have one colour when you can have a rainbow!”

Katy sang “Birthday” to a lucky teen boy pulled onto the stage (apparently his birthday that day), giving him a boob-in-the-face-hug then leaving him to spend the rest of the song on top of a spinning cake. Katy serenaded him, flying around on a balloon swing, confetti cannons going off in every direction.

Telstra Thanks sponsored the event, providing “prism vision” glasses. During the later half of the show we were prompted to put on our glasses, to watch Katy perform with extra fireworks and a dazzling light show.

I enjoyed Katy’s music in the past but wouldn’t have considered myself a Katy Kat-I didn’t even know what that was! I was thoroughly impressed with her performance, singing well whilst jumping around so energetically! If I wasn’t allergic to cats I think would be meowing with the rest of Perth đŸ˜‰

19 wishes for my fire headed nephews

I wish that they grow up to be strong and healthy
I wish for their life to be full of happiness and excitement
I wish for them to be inspired and that they fill their life with passion
I wish that they find purpose and contentment in trying to achieve that purpose
I wish for their life to be hard enough to teach them tolerance and compassion
I wish for their life to be easy enough that they do not feel complete despair
I wish for them to live in a world that values both science and spirituality
I wish that the world they grow their own children in will be clean and sustainable
I wish that they will seize the day and not wait for life to start
I wish for them to treat people with respect, including themselves
I wish for their life journey to be magical
I wish for them to fall in love completely and without doubt
I wish for them to be there for each other through thick and thin
I wish for them to see the world and be open minded
I wish for them to always ask why
I wish for them to value honesty and kindness
I wish that they will have reason to smile everyday
I wish that they will grow up into men that know when to stand alone and when to ask for help
I wish that they will always cherish their family

Especially their Aunty!
