Katy Perry Embraces the Memes About Her Pink Grammys Dress — See Her Favorite

Katy Perry is embracing the meme-worthiness of her 2019 Grammys ensemble.
The singer and American Idol judge, 34, turned heads on the red carpet at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday evening, wearing a strapless bubblegum-pink Balmain Couture gown featuring a sculptural silver-accented bodice and a structured pleated skirt.
Djula diamond jewelry added extra sparkle to her look.
Fans were quick to use social media to poke a bit of good-natured fun at Perry’s outfit, likening it to a host of household objects — and sweet snacks! “Why is Katy Perry’s dress making me hungry #GRAMMYs,” one Twitter user wrote, sharing a side-by-side snapshot of Perry and a cake featuring a Barbie doll with a long pink gown made of frosting.
Along the same confectionery lines, a second fan posted a photograph of pink Hostess Sno Balls, writing, “Katy Perry’s dress reminds me of Hostess Sno Balls cakes.

The “Firework” singer took the comparisons in stride, sharing the above examples on her Instagram Story and perhaps the most hilarious one to her actual feed.
“Hi to whoever made this edit ,” Perry captioned a Photoshopped image of herself in the dress — attached to the end of a pink paint roller.
