‘Not only is she talented and gorgeous but she’s also resourceful,’ fan jokes
On Wednesday, the pop star performed the first show of her residency at the Resorts World Theatre, where she appeared on stage in multiple extravagant outfits.
However, despite performing alongside a number of over-the-top stage props, including a giant surgical face mask and an oversized orange toilet, it was Perry’s silver dress that has garnered the most attention – as it also included a refreshment for the singer.
The dress, which was made up of hundreds of metal can tabs, featured multiple crumpled beer cans, while the bra consisted of two smashed aluminum cans.
The metal accessories weren’t just for show, however, as videos taken of the performance show the Dark Horse singer telling the audience that she could “really use a drink right now” before popping open one of the bra beer cans and pouring the liquid into a large beer mug.
After filling the oversize glass with beer, to loud cheering from the crowd, Perry then drank the beverage on stage.
On social media, the eccentric fashion moment, which took place while Perry engaged in a conversation with the talking face mask, entertained viewers.
“Not only is she talented and gorgeous but she’s also resourceful,” one person wrote on TikTok, while someone else said: “She’s so iconic.”
Another person joked that the outfit gave a “whole new meaning to pop top”.
Not everyone was a fan of the look, however, as one person shared their distaste for the outfit on Twitter, where they wrote: “Words can’t express how much I hate these photos of Katy Perry lactating beer into a cup.”
During the debut performance of her Play residency, Perry also took to the stage wearing a red latex bodysuit, complete with red fringe pants and a mushroom-shaped hat, a hot pink and white striped dress, which she paired with white go-go boots, and a black and white wrap dress, which she wore while performing alongside the oversized toilet bowl and rolls of toilet paper.
The singer’s extravagant choices were unveiled after she previously revealed during an appearance on Good Morning America that the set and props for the residency were designed to be “fun”.
“A lot of my shows have been figuratively larger than life, but I play a doll in this show, so everything is like, three times the size of me,” she said of the 16-show residency. “It’s Honey I Shrunk the Kids meets Pee-wee’s Playhouse, but we knew what our audience is. People are here to have fun, people are here to let loose.”
