* GenreRoulette:
** Her first album was pop-rock oriented, even going so far as to include a "Rock Mix" of "I Kissed A Girl" as a bonus track.
** ''Teenage Dream'' was more oriented towards edited genres, such as synthpop, disco, and dance.
** ''Prism'' really was a GenreRoulette, having everything from trap to electropop to more dance.
** Meanwhile, it seems she's moving towards house music on ''Witness''.

-->'''Katy:''' "This song in particular is a dose of reality. It's kind of like coming down from a high. You’ve been on cloud nine for so long, and it can't always be so sweet and sometimes you need to realize that, and you have to pick yourself up and move forward and face the facts of life and know that this is just a lesson you learn and you're stronger because of it."

* CostumePorn: Her California Dreams tour was a showcase for an array of crazy/cartoonish/candy-themed costumes.
** The video for "Unconditionally" is a more traditional example of this, being inspired by Anna Karenina.

** Also, during the halftime show at the Super Bowl XLIX, during the performance of her song “Teenage Dream”, one of the backup dancers dressed as a shark and dancing to the left side of the singer was seen screwing up a routine while on stage. Shortly after the conclusion of the halftime show, the awkwardly dancing “left shark” quickly emerged as a trending topic on Twitter and elsewhere.
* GagBoobs: Where to start? In her various videos, her breasts have shot out fireworks, whipped cream and glitter. She's worn bras made out of candy, dice, pokeballs and practically everything imaginable. They're practically comedy props by now.
** And, don't forget her guest shot on SNL, when the Elmo T-shirt she wore had some Really Big Eyes.

* ImportantHaircut: In the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuwfgXD8qV8&feature=channel Part of Me video]], after she breaks up with her cheating boyfriend, she cuts her hair short and joins the Marines.
** Same with the music video for "Bon Appetit", though in this case, Perry did cut her hair short before the music video began filming and wore a long haired wig for the first half of the music video.
*** And in real life, the aforementioned haircut was done because she wanted to feel like Katheryn Hudson again.

* TheIlluminati: {{Discussed|Trope}}. Dear sweet goodness, there were so many accusations of her affiliation with the illuminati after her video for "Dark Horse" and it got [[FromBadToWorse even worse]] with her live performance at the grammys. The biggest argument toward the connection was the ignorance about the Eye of Horus symbol and pyramid imagery, which are both perfectly legitimate icons of Ancient Egypt.
