Last night’s MTV Video Music Awards were filled with both heart-stopping and hilarious moments that only this live show could provide.
One of the best moments in the ‘hilarious’ department was definitely the red carpet arrival of Katy Perry and rapper Riff Raff in their matching denim dress and tuxedo outfits.
And no, you didn’t see a ghost of pop stars past! Perry actually donned the get up to pay homage to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s denim ensemble circa the 2001 American Music Awards.
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Well, Britney sure thought so! The princess of pop sent Perry her stamp over approval via Twitter.
Katy tweeted at Britney on Sunday night, saying, “I did my best impression, hope you likey!” to which Brit replied, “Just when I thought the denim dress had retired…you bring it back! You looked amazing tonight bb.” According to People’s Choice rankings, Britney’s Facebook post about the look was engaged with more than 147,000 times in the last 24 hours.
Britney sent the tweet from Vegas in the wee hours of the morning as Perry and her denim clad counterpart partied the night away in Inglewood, CA. And even though Katy and Riff Raff have been rumored to be dating, this coordinated statement seemed to be more of a promotion for their new collab, “This Is How We Do (Remix)”, than a couple’s announcement.
