It’s impossible not to love Katy Perry. She is a successful businesswoman, a philanthropist, a lovely soul, and a heck of a lot of fun. Even out of the limelight, when she’s in her unguarded moments, she’s beautiful. Just the sight of her natural face, without makeup, turns us all into trembling poets. Which is why there’s no other way to describe the following photos except with a thesaurus and some very flowery prose.
Rockin’ a Hoodie
We don’t know what is wrong with this photo. Might be she’s eaten a lemon, then be challenged to a rap battle on her way to rehab.
Wonderful. She almost looks different, far away from the layer of showbiz and the troubles of the world.
On the Radio
Heart-melting. Behind the mic, she doesn’t need anything to cover up. She seems to be comfortable. She has got her voice and face.
Luminous. It’s not just from the flash of the camera phone. It looks like she’s lit from within by some inner fire, and all it wants to do is light up the world.
With Blue Hair
Does anyone know why she’s gone for blue hair? Was it a dare? Or a run in with the Cookie Monster?
She is shining down on us from the heavens like a young star.
The play of shadows, the arch of the eyebrows – that’s classical beauty, right there.
Trying On Wigs
Untouchable. And yet someone is daring to.
You might think we’re either being lazy or insulting, but there’s no other way to describe this candid moment.
Wearing a Sweater
Raw. Raw, unsullied beauty. Raw emotions. Raw, searing light. Everything fresh and pure and good, before it’s been put through this crappy blender we call life.
