It’s still March, and yet pop star Katy Perry is already having an eventful year. She premiered her latest single, Chained The Rhythm with Skip Marley at the Grammys 2017 and broke up with her beau of one year, British actor Orlando Bloom. And like any independent woman with a successful career and a new freedom in life, she simply had to get a makeover and yes, cut her hair.
Apparently, sh’e cut almost all of it.
Maybe the pixie cut was so 2016, but Katy Perry is bringing a fresh new twist to it, thanks to her celebrity hairstylist and professional hair-color expert. Not only has she chopped off her famous mane, she’s even gone platinum blonde. It’s kind of giving us this whole Miley Cyrus-Ellen DeGeneres vibe to it.
First, she tweeted out what she feels her fans plans should be for the new year. She said, “HOW BOUT A NEW WAY OF THINKING FOR 2017?! U can still b friends & love ur former partners! No one’s a victim or a villain, get a life y’all!”

This comment was probably in response to obvious mixed feelings of the internet upon learning that she and the Pirates Of The Caribbean star had split for good, after an official statement was released by their reps. It would make sense why the two decided to part ways, much like a lot of couples in a demanding industry that is Hollywood – they’re both busy with their own careers. While Perry is working hard in the studio for her latest album, and promoting her latest single, Bloom will soon be hitting the road to promote the latest instalment in Disney’s hit pirate franchise.
Meanwhile, she also posted a short video of her new ‘do on Instagram, that immediately received mixed reactions, since random people feel their opinions count. For example, a number of them pointed out how just a couple of weeks ago she passed an unwarranted insult towards fellow pop star Britney Spears, in reference to her 2007 public meltdown where she ended up shaving her head. Many are calling Perry out for hypocrisy, saying she did the same after her breakup.
