Mind Blown! Katy Perry Gets Her Crazy Fashion Sense From A Comic Book Character?

Mind Blown! Katy Perry Gets Her Crazy Fashion Sense From A Comic Book Character?

Would you believe me if I told you Katy Perry has been taking fashion cues from a 1940's comic book character named, Katy Keene? Come see a side-by-side comparison of the two.

Hey Katy Perry, comic book character KATY KEENE just called, she wants her look back. Katy Keene, who was also known as "America's Queen of Pin-Ups and Fashions," made her first appearance in Wilbur Comics #5, a comic book that was published by Archie Comics. The same publisher that produced comics with Riverdale's most popular citizens: Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica. In 1949, Katy Keene received he own title, which ran for 12 years. At times she was a singer, a model and even a movie star. What made her comic unique, was that fans were encouraged to submit designs for clothes and various other props that characters would wear or use. The character didn't appear in a comic for 20 years, but she did have an 80's revival.

Even though Katy Keene has been in retirement for the past few decades, outside of a few short stints, she seems to have one very influential fan... Katy Perry. Over the past few years, people started to notice some striking similarities between Katy Perry and Katy Keene, but it only started to gain some real traction in the past few weeks. This was first brought to my attention by a recent Buzzfeed article. You can check out lots of images below and compare for yourself.

On a personal note, it certainly seems that Katy Perry's fashion sense is inspired by Katy Keene, but none of her outfits are perfect copycats. It would be nice if she would acknowledge the comic for inspiring her outrageous looks, but she doesn't have anything to apologize for. By the way, look at the image to the right. Notice that the guy on the cover sitting with Katy Keene's sister is named Perry. I bring this up because Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson is Katy Perry's real name but she changed it because Goldie Hawn's daughter, Kate Hudson, already had dibs on it. Maybe that's where the pop singer came up with her new last name?

Good artists steal....Great artists make wonderful films and establish a solid career so that when kids accuse you of touching them, no one cares.

This is amazing.

no offense to Ror, but "Roar" is just a terrible, awful song.

Perry is a great singer.

She is a naturally talented performer.

She is beautiful.

She doesn't even need all these stupid costumes she wears.

She would be just as great and famous without all that crap.

MericawithanM - 5/10/2014, 7:12 PM
agreed with dark knight. she sucks.
MightyZeus - 5/10/2014, 7:18 PM
She stole some outfits.

She still sucks though.
TheDarkPassenger - 5/10/2014, 7:18 PM
I don't exactly listen to her tits...I mean music.

[frick]. She's alright.
CherryBomb - 5/10/2014, 7:18 PM
Katy is hit and miss. I like her music for it's sheer catchy quality.
But she does have a good voice.

Platinum - 5/10/2014, 7:19 PM
I think she's attractive but her music sucks so bad it turns me off.
Scorpion8125 - 5/10/2014, 7:22 PM

Okay, I do admit she has some first rate boobs.

Count me in for her next warm jello hot tub gig.

Mercwitham0uth - 5/10/2014, 7:24 PM
She has glorious tits.
kong - 5/10/2014, 7:26 PM

I haven't heard a single live performance from this woman yet that wasn't awful. She is NOT a good singer by a long shot. Much of her music is rather basic as well though catchy.

Luckily she has a label that loves her, high end stage productions, Katy Keene's style and two pairs of bounchy bon bons to distract from her overall averageness.

Katy Blooody Perry.
ShelfPorn - 5/10/2014, 7:41 PM
I would only bang the heavily make-uped, good lighting, photoshopped version of her...
DaVinci31 - 5/10/2014, 7:42 PM
Sorry nail, I'm more of an ass man.

Marxman12 - 5/10/2014, 7:44 PM
I liked Katy Perry up until she made two very big mistakes. One, she hawked ObamaCare. Two, she got involved with Russell Brand.
DaVinci31 - 5/10/2014, 7:46 PM

Pretty much.

MericawithanM - 5/10/2014, 7:49 PM
@marxman you forgot her biggest mistake; making music.
SuperCat - 5/10/2014, 7:58 PM
She's got some tig ol' bitties.

Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Avril Lavigne... they all have some interesting fashion sense... but they sell music and seem to have a lot of fun doing. If you can be rich and still be having a good time then more power to ya.
mgeoff88 - 5/10/2014, 8:08 PM
Wow, that is uncanny!

And whether you like her music or not, you gotta admit she is hot:

@Tucks I really liked "Roar." I don't like her new song "Birthday" though. The music video for it is weird too.
UltimateHunt - 5/10/2014, 8:09 PM
ha... maybe thats her idol.
she does have the upper of a wonderwoman
