Pop star Katy Perry is known for her unique style and catchy songs, but her “glitching eye” caught fans’ attention last year. In October 2022, Perry’s right eye seemed to shut on its own during one of her final “Play” residency shows in Las Vegas, leaving viewers puzzled. After touching the side of her face, she adjusted her eye back to normal and continued with her performance.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Katy Perry revealed the secret behind her viral party trick. She calls the movement the “doll eye,” which she perfected to keep an eye on the progress of her hair and makeup while sitting in a hair and makeup chair for 15 years.
Perry demonstrated the trick, saying, “If they’re putting eyeshadow on this eye and someone is putting my hair up into a French twist, I want to give notes in real-time.” She acted like her eye was glitching again before correcting herself and winking at the camera. Fans were relieved to finally have an answer, with many expressing their love for the singer.
Katy’s decision to quit alcohol
Meanwhile, Katy Perry has also made headlines for her recent decision to quit drinking alcohol. Perry revealed that she and her partner, Orlando Bloom, made a pact to quit drinking, and she has been sober for five weeks. The couple, who share a 2-year-old daughter, Daisy, plan to abstain from alcohol for three months.
Perry has temporarily stopped drinking, including after her divorce from Russell Brand in 2012. She went through a three-month detoxing period, which included no alcohol. In a 2017 interview, Perry revealed that she had stopped drinking the previous January and felt “empowered” and “liberated” from things that didn’t serve her.
Fortunately for Perry, she co-founded De Soi, a line of non-alcoholic apéritifs, making her sobriety journey a little easier. Despite making comments at a curated cocktail event with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest and fellow judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, Perry remained committed to her pact and joked that she couldn’t cave in.
Perry’s recent revelations have shown her fans a different side of the singer, one that is committed to self-care and personal growth. Her “doll eye” trick may have been a viral moment, but her dedication to staying sober and taking care of herself truly deserves recognition.
