Watch Katy Perry get her nose pierced... if you're into that
Um, ew. Katy Perry took a break from her Prismatic World Tour to pick up a little bling — and let the whole internet watch a dude poke a hole in her face.
A video posted to the "Birthday" singer's Instagram gets reeeaaal close and personal. Warning: this account of the deed, complete with a nice, loud "Ow!" from Perry, is not for the weak-stomached folks (like me).
Perry's whining seems to make the piercer nervous — or at least, that's what he says in the video. But who wouldn't be anxious about poking a hole in a mega-celeb like Perry?
The Daily Mail reports that the new jewelry is meant to cover up an old scar from Perry's first nose piercing — one she did herself when she was a kid, she recently told The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
"I asked my mother permission so I could get my nose pierced," Perry remembered. "And of course she didn't give it to me. She said it was ridiculous and she wasn't gonna do that. So she then went on an errand, so I took a safety pin and a piece of ice and I pierced my own nose."
"She saw it [later], she's like, 'Oh, it's not as bad as I thought.' Because it was just a little diamond," Perry continued. "But I still have this horrible scar that everybody brings up when they get really close."
Perry referenced her rebellious act in the caption on her Instagram vid.
“This time I thought it was best I left it to the pro's," she wrote. "Sorry mom (again).”
What do you think of Perry's video? Is it a cool look at the behind-the-scenes life of a star, or is it gross and over the top? Tell us in the comments.
