Pop star Katy Perry isn’t exactly someone you’d call conventional. When the singer donned a costume for American Idol’s Disney-themed episode, she went for something totally unexpected—and absolutely amazing!
Forget about Ariel and her flowing red locks. Instead of a Disney princess, Perry chose a villain. More specifically, she chose Ursula. And her costume was…well, fit for a serious sea witch.
Perry told Entertainment Tonight, “I was thinking about [being] the Little Mermaid but then I realized, Ursula is a character who isn’t done very much, [while] the Little Mermaid always gets her moment in the sun!” The singer went on to add an American Idol tie-in, saying, “And Ursula, actually, really wants Ariel’s voice. And that’s what I want, is these contestants’ voices!”
So what did Perry’s co-judges think of the imaginative awesomeness of the superstar’s Ursula outfit? Luke Bryan told ET, “I was in my trailer, looking like me, and somebody goes, ‘Katy is gonna be Ursula.’ And I go, ‘Is she purple all over?’ And they said, ‘She’s purple all over.’ I went, ‘God, I love that woman. I love her.'” Yep, we pretty much feel the same way!
