* FauxSymbolism: At the 2012 Grammys she performed "E.T." (a song about her love story with RussellBrand), the power went out mid-song and she then started singing "Part of Me", a song about her break-up with Travie [=McCoy=] reworked to fit her divorce with Brand.

** Also she and her friends eat a living gingerbread man. He responds only by smiling. Also that last one may have been inspired by (or copied from, if you prefer) a scene in TomPetty's NightmareFuel-filled]] video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0JvF9vpqx8 Don't Come Around Here No More]]". Considering that in Petty's video it's a woman dressed as the main character of ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' being eaten after becoming a cake from the neck down, and she looks pretty horrified about it, what happens to the gingerbread man is not so bad by comparison.

* SheReallyCanAct: As the insane prison guard in ''RaisingHope''. She's [[BeautyInversion near unrecognizable]] as well, having a facial hair problem and a bushy perm.

* HilariousInHindsight: "E.T." was serviced three months before the release of the ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' expansion set of New Phyrexia, whose mechanics and storyline fit strangely well the lyrics.

** The underperformances of ''Prism''[='=]s fourth and fifth singles, "Birthday" and "This Is How We Do," have often been attributed to the continued monstrous longevity of "Dark Horse."

** The underperformances of ''Prism''[='=]s fourth and fifth singles, "Birthday" and "This Is How We Do," (and quick burn-out of second song "Unconditionally") have often been attributed to the continued monstrous longevity of "Dark Horse." This has become known in fan communities as the "Dark Horse" effect (i.e. Swedish DJ Avicii having his American popularity completely cannibalized by the his own ultra-long-lasting hit, "Wake Me Up!")

* FandomRivalry: Recently it's Taylor Swift's fans vs. Katy's fans, although it's a bit more one-sided from Taylor's fandom, given that her song "Bad Blood" is allegedly about Katy.

* CriticalResearchFailure: In "Dark Horse", the song mentioned the Greek goddess Aphrodite...in a music video sets in ''Memphis, ancient Egypt''. Creator/ToddInTheShadows had a field day with this.

* SignatureSong: Perry has many popular songs, but "Firework" is becoming her leading song after being her UsefulNotes/SuperBowl halftime show closer, with Perry on a shooting star being raised in the air during the closer.

* SignatureSong: Perry has many popular songs, but "Firework" is becoming her leading song after being her UsefulNotes/SuperBowl halftime show closer, with Perry on a shooting star being raised in the air during the closer. Second place is seen as a tie between her two major hits from ''Prism'', "Roar" and "Dark Horse."
* ToughActToFollow: Scoring 5 #1s in an album? It's unlikely Katy Perry will be able to redo that record.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: A lot of the lyrics in E.T., considering it's about Russell Brand and she ended up divorcing him, such as "They don't understand you", meaning her friends warned her about it.
