It’s been almost a year since Katy Perry’s first appearance/performance on the Today Show. She was back on again today, once again trying to show what a unique rebel she is and trying to distance herself from her religious Christian past. She’s had a few singles since I Kissed a Girl came out, and she got to perform them all. Hot and Cold has been overplayed to death, so I won’t even bother with that one. I do quite enjoy the new one that’s been getting played, Waking Up in Vegas (which would have been a perfect theme song for the movie The Hangover, but that’s neither here nor there), and this clip of her performing it contains come of the most awkward moments and downright strange stuff I’ve ever seen:
Let’s take a look at some of the more notable moments, shall we?
At the 0:27 mark, please note the will-they-or-won’t-they handshake moment that results in Katy grabbing onto Matt’s hand in a very awkward way.
At 0:31, Matt Lauer asks her about her (as usual) ridiculous outfit.
At 1:07, Katy starts talking about bananas and implies something about dicks while practically grinding against Matt, then tries to make a joke about potassium as he ignores her shenanigans.
At 3:10, Al Roker looking like the biggest square on earth as she starts singing the song.
At 3:51, the girl with braces who looks about 12 or younger singing along to a song about getting wasted in Vegas. That’s appropriate.
At 4:21, the cameraman dancing and playing air guitar on the platform. Just wow.
I will say this, whenever Katy Perry’s on the Today Show, she sure doesn’t seem to disappoint in regards to a ridiculous appearance. That’s what I get for waking up and watching the Today Show, I suppose.
