“First I’m thinking, who is this silly girl who’s gotten in?” said one of the teachers from the Melbourne school visited by Perry. “I think, ‘Oh, that’s kind of nice, they’re letting her join in.’ Then I go into teacher’s mode and think, ‘Alright, who is this idiot?’”
Added one student who seemed both delighted and bitter at Katy’s impromptu appearance, “She said she’s never been to a prom before, and because she’s Katy Perry, she just got in. Just like that.”
We’re slightly disappointed that Perry didn’t perform any one of her new songs at the Aussie prom, but we’re even more upset that she didn’t help launch a fully choreographed She’s All That-style dance routine. Not like the movies, indeed.
