As a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, Katy Perry was in the presence of one her idols: Alanis Morissette, who was on the set to perform her new single “Guardian”. Ellen wrangled in Katy, who apparently didn’t need much coaxing, to introduce the Canadian pop-rock icon. “Ellen’s next guest has sold over 60 million albums and is one of the reasons why I became a songwriter,” Perry said. After Alanis’ performance (which was flawless, we might add), Katy ran up and hugged her, and the two shared a kiss. Awww — we just love pop comaraderie.
Morissette’s eighth studio LP Havoc And Bright Lights is due out in August.
