Katy Perry Says She’s Constantly Mistaken For Katy Perry

Katy Perry has revealed that she’s often the victim of mistaken identity when out with her daughter, Daisy Dove. In an interview with The Cut, the “California Girls” singer said that while out at mom and baby groups with her daughter, many people mistake her for… herself. While that sounds ridiculous, it’s important to keep in mind that Perry does live in Los Angeles, and pretty much anything could happen in La La Land.

  1. The mistaken identity happens at mom and baby groups. Perry was questioned during the interview about how often she gets recognized in public given her massive level of fame. Perry said that the truth is pretty strange: people recognize her but don’t believe it’s her. “We do a lot of mommy-and-me classes. This morning, I was with her at a ballet class, and this woman goes, ‘Oh my god, you look so much like Katy Perry,'” she told the publication. “And I was like, ‘Hi, nice to meet you. I care about my kid and take her to classes’. I’ve become a member at all the museums — we go to the zoo, the Natural History Museum, the kids’ museum. That’s my new club.”
  2. That’s not the only time Perry gets recognized in public. However, the singer joked that she’s usually on her bike and can ride away quickly before she’s accosted. “I like to grab a coffee and an empanada and just drink my coffee and eat my empanada while I’m on my bike. People do recognize me, but by the time they’re like, ‘Is that…? Was that…?’ I’m already gone,” she said.
  3. In another part of the interview, Perry admitted that motherhood has truly changed her. While Katy Perry a different person in many ways, her sleep schedule is one of the biggest things that has been affected since becoming a parent. “I really try not to stay up past 10pm anymore, because I know my baby is going to be up at 6 a.m.,” she said. “Whether I put her to bed at seven, eight, or nine, come 6 a.m., she’s up. So I have to count the hours backward from that. The clock is ticking.”
