Katy Perry brought down the house last night at the MTV Video Music Awards, and although Miley Cyrus is hogging most of the spotlight today plenty of people are talking about Perry’s Brooklyn Bridge performance, which included synchronized jump-roping and a gold-plated boxing theme.
Perry debuted a live performance of “Roar“, the first single off her new album “Prism”, and in typical Katy fashion went all out in the boxing motif. There was a “coach” giving her a pep talk beforehand, a stage set up like the ring, and a slew of backup dancers all dressed in warmup gear. The pop singer recently did away with her old candy-colored image for good–burning her iconic blue wig in the process–and is moving on to bigger things. According to Twitter, the new image looks good on her.
Roar by Katy Perry is like my theme aong for life

I'm not sure who I am or how I got here, but for better or worse I'm obsessed with the new Katy Perry song #ROAR http://t.co/I5aicfUhNV

I really do have to say that Katy Perry’s Roar was superior to Lady Gaga’s Applause performance. #VMAs

While everyone is reeling from Miley's #vma performance, I'm obsessing over Katy Perry's synchronized jump roping skillz. #roar
