Why Katy Perry "Cried With Joy" at a Broadway Show
Katy Perry mixed high fashion with drag queens yesterday in NYC. She dressed up in a blue Vera Wang gown when she arrived at the 2013 Delete Blood Cancer Gala, and also dropped by a performance of the Tony-nominated musical Kinky Boots on Broadway. Katy, who is a big fan of musicals, tweeted her support for the show after the performance. She said, "Just saw Kinky Boots on Broadway and cried with joy from its powerful, beautiful message." Katy also added, "If Billy Porter doesn't win the Tony for best actor in a musical . . . There will be words . . . Trust." The musical, which was brought to the stage by Cyndi Lauper, earned a whopping 13 Tony nominations earlier this week, more than any other show.
Katy has been having a busy time on the East Coast over the past few days. She attended the White House Correspondent's' Dinner on Saturday in Washington DC and visited Prada's party for The Great Gatsby in the Big Apple on Tuesday. While at the Gatsby bash, Katy hung out with Isla Fisher and chatted with friend Florence Welch.
