Happy Birthday, Katy Perry! It’s been quite the year for the ‘California Gurls’ singer, who performed at both the Super Bowl and the Grammys AND reunited with her ex John Mayer! Celebrate now with a look back at her year in photos!
It’s an extra special day for KatyCats everywhere! Katy Perry turns 31 today, October 25, and you can bet she’s celebrating in style. And how could she not? The “Dark Horse” singer is coming off another stellar year filled with new releases, headlining performances and new love (well, sort of). Join us now as we celebrate her special day with a look back at her best pics!
We’re sure Katy Perry won’t be having your average birthday celebration — not after the amazing year she’s had! First and foremost, we have to discuss her EPIC performance at the 2015 Super Bowl, where she road out onto the field on top a gigantic robotic lion while performing her mega-hit “Roar.” The pop superstar than proceeded to bring out Lenny Kravitz, who performed her first hit single, “I Kissed A Girl,” and Missy Elliott, who busted out her hits “Get Ur Freak On,” and “Work It.” Amazing!
Not long after that, Katy returned to the Grammys stage, where she sent chills down our spines with her haunting performance of “By the Grace of God.” Shedding her zanier costumes for an angelic white column gown and matching cape, Katy belted her heart out while singing the song she wrote after her divorce from Russell Brand. On the Grammys red carpet, Katy told Ryan Seacrest that she chose that song to perform to “close out” her album Prism, which proved to be a huge success.
Meanwhile in the love department, Katy was rumored to have reunited with her ex John Mayer, 37, after the two were spotted holding hands at Allison Williams‘ wedding on Sept. 19. Pics of the pair on The Daily Mail show them all cozied up with each other during the ceremony, looking happy as ever. Prior to the wedding, the two were also spotted together at a Grateful Dead show on July 4, despite breaking up for a second time this year alone. Hey, whatever makes her happy!
While it seems unlikely that Katy will be releasing new music before the end of the year, the “Birthday” singer (that’s right, she has her own birthday song) she did tell HollywoodLife.com that she plans to hit the studio again once her tour ends. “I’m still on tour so when I get off tour is when I will start to refocus,” she said. “I have been on the road for almost a year and I am tired. I have done enough! I have done one-hundred-and-forty-one shows and I have ten more shows in South America, so that is what I am looking forward to right now.” Take all the time you need, Katy — you deserve it!
