When Katy Perry debuted this silver-blonde look, fans were more shocked about the haircut than the color.
The reason for the cut, however, was revealed in an interview Perry did on the Viceland series “The Therapist,” where she explained that she was having trouble connecting to her authentic self, Katheryn Hudson (her real name). “I so badly want to be Katheryn Hudson that I don’t even want to look like Katy Perry anymore sometimes,” she said.
The “Small Talk” songstress told W Magazine that she feels “liberated” since chopping off her hair.
Perry has since gone back to black.
