Katy Perry does what every girls is advised to do after a break-up: following the announcement that she and actor Orlando Bloom had split, Perry gets a new haircut.
At the iHeartRadio Music awards on Sunday, Katy Perry showed up with a Miley Cyrus-inspired haircut. She hopes that this new short blonde hairdo will get her more attention, as she confirmed, joking: “I’m trying to get more attention, obviously. You can just grow it back”, she told E! “
But she revealed that her choice for a pixie hair style came as a result of inspiration she got from actress Scarlett Johansson (and not Miley Cyrus). She continued: “I’ve always wanted to have that pixie haircut, so I said, ‘Let’s just go for it.’”
The singer posted on Instagram a couple of short videos immediately after she ditched her long hair for the fresh new short pixie cut. Chris, her hair stylist says he had always wanted to do that, but Katy says she wasn’t ready for such a radical change of look. Until now.
In the wake of her newly-found single status, the Chained to the Rhythm singer says she has found herself to be “more authentic” than ever before. At the age of 32, Perry has worked with herself to become more self-accepting and her work is paying off “because I’m having fun and feeling free”.
As for her “break” from the relationship with Orlando Bloom, she wanted all to know that there was not bad guy. “No one’s a victim or a villain, get a life y’all!” she tweeted last week, on March 2.

Perry and Bloom announced they were splitting up through their reps, earlier this month. “Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time”, the statement read.
