I mean, for one thing, this is the kind of thing Katy wears all the time, anyway: Shiny, colorful, decidedly unsubtle. But last night, she performed with Dolly Parton — a woman whose very existence fills me with unadulterated joy, personally — and I am confident that Katy was (a) overcome with glee, and (b) decided to go at Katy Perry Country as humanly possible to mark the occasion.
I am just bummed she didn’t wear a cowboy hat. Come on, Katy. Committing only 95% to a theme isn’t usually your style.
I also kinda don’t know why she changed for the performance:
This is like changing out of a three-quarter-length sleeved Breton-striped shirt into a long-sleeved one. Different enough so that YOU understand the nuance, but basically the exact same idea.
