She's doing a reverse Taylor, and we're low-key here for it.


Forget everything you thought you knew about modern day fashion in the realm of Country music. Kacey Musgraves' prom dress realness? Old. Miranda Lambert's penchant for denim and leather? Nope. 

'Cause Katy Perry had the time of her life at the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACMs) last night dressed head to toe in a metallic, fringed, cow print ensemble complete with (now signature) Bump-It and there's literally NO bringing her back to pop. She's country now.

Katy's second lewk for her performance with Queen Dolly was beyond anything we could have imagined. And in that Rhinestone embellished moment, she sold her soul to Country.

When you gotta duet with Dolly Parton at 7 but you gotta be back at the Rodeo by 11, amiright?

Sources (aka live tweeters) have mixed feelings about the lewk - but what is your final verdict? Have we lost Katy to Country forever?

Let us know what you think! Do we need to bring Katy back to Pop? Or let her loose in Nashville?
