Congrats, Katy Perry!
The 29-year-old pop princess set yet another record this week. The Recording Industry Association of America–the organization responsible for certifying gold and platinum records–named Perry the “most rewarded digital act” ever. What does that mean, exactly? Perry’s loyal fan base of “Katy Kats” have purchased an astonishing 72 million singles online. That’s 20 million more than her closet competitor, Rihanna.
And Perry has a lot of fans: Almost 13 million people subscribe to her VEVO account (KatyPerryVEVO), which has racked up over 3.5 billion views.
Perry’s happy-go-lucky, bubble-gum-and-fireworks attitude has produced some wild looks in her music videos. Her eccentric style has ranged from nerdy, school-girl glasses and a metal-filled mouth in “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” to a simple leopard top and modest leaf (as in jungle) skirt in “Roar.”
In honor of Katy Perry’s record-setting feat, here are 16 of the wildest looks from some of her biggest music videos.
