Katy Perry Is Excited To Visit India

Earlier this week, Katy posted Instagram photos of herself wearing a pink and yellow polka dot dress. She teased this weekend’s festival performance, saying it’s been seven years since she was last in India.

Since “they say every single cell of your body rejuvenates itself about every 7 years,” Katy said fans could expect “a brand new me” at the event. She added that she’s “ready to par-tay” on Saturday, and gave Dua Lipa a shout-out.

The OnePlus Instagram account also posted about Katy’s upcoming performance, pointing out that her “travelling troupe includes 50+ energetic dancers, production engineers, light technicians, skilled back up singers, and over 25 tons of cargo.”

What’s Next For Katy?

When she’s not performing in India, Katy Perry has been putting out some pretty catchy singles this year. Her most recent release was “Harleys in Hawaii.” However, she has yet to announce a new album to follow 2017’s Witness. Fingers crossed it happens soon!

Katy is also returning as a judge on American Idol with Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. They’ve been taping the first episodes of the new season, with Katy posting updates on Instagram. We’ll have to wait until next year for the show to return.

The singer also happens to be engaged to actor Orlando Bloom. We can’t wait to see what their wedding is like.
