2012 Billboard Music Awards: Katy Perry Brings Her Grandma As Her “Hot” Date

Katy Perry was a vision in purple as she arrived at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday (May 20). Prior to stepping out onto the red carpet, the pop star tweeted, “My date to tonight’s Billboard Music Awards is hotter than the las vegas weather. SMOKIN’!” So just who was this sexy escort on the recently divorced, Part Of Me star’s arm — perhaps in an effort to make ex-husband Russell Brand jealous? Her grandma, Ann Hudson! (How cute is that?!)

Now, unfortunately for the uncute: Katy’s makeup. We’ve seen the California girl in an array of hair colors and styles, and she’s looked beautiful in all of them. But the dark purple lipstick looked more like nightmare on the Teenage Dream’s face , completely washing out her already fair complexion. Hopefully, the Adidas spokeswoman switches up her look before her first live performance “Wide Awake” later tonight.

What do you think of Katy’s look? Let us know below or on Facebook and Twitter.
