Back when Katy Perry posted a photo of herself in mermaid garb planking as a mermaid, we had no idea what was going on. Was the pop star following in Lady Gaga’s flippers and jumping on the mer-person trend for a new video? Turns out the planking pic was taken on set of a David LaChapelle photo shoot for ghd’s Air hairdryer — because a mermaid, whose hair is constantly wet, is in most need of a blow-dry, right? “It’s as if Lisa Frank had done The Little Mermaid,” described Katy. So, are you digging her pink locks, or are you feeling blue?
