Katy Perry's New Pixie Cut Is Gorgeous, Said She 'Asked For The
Katy Perry just debuted a brand-new look: a tousled, unbelievably sexy pixie cut. And it's got us a little confused.

Not on the sexiness, of course. Yesterday, Perry posted an Instagram pic of her new locks, along with a mysterious kind of "come hither" look. It's a great picture. But it's a picture that was uploaded on April 1st... aka "April Fool's Day; aka Every Single Person With a Modicum of Online Fame Posts Some Kind of Prank" day.

So this could very well just be a wig, with Perry's previous haircut tucked underneath. E! attests that Perry was last spotted on March 30 with her old ...

Katy Perry Gives Fans A Chance To Be A 'Proper' Left Shark With
Katy Perry's Super Bowl XLIX halftime show was one of the better performances during the big game in recent years, but one of the most talked about moments was the two background dancers dressed as sharks who joined her as she sang hit single "California Gurls."

The dancer on her left (from the audience's perspective) created a huge buzz online because of its out-of-sync dance moves, and was quickly dubbed "Left Shark."

Following the performance, a Florida artist began producing Left Shark figures he created using a 3D printer and offering them online for $24.99, but Katy's lawyers quickl...
