Katy Perry started off her weekend like a total celebrity – mobbed by paparazzi at LAX, her fiancé Russell Brand was arrested after an altercation where one paparazzo tried to take an inappropriate photo of Katy. (Perry tweeted about the incident, writing: “If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me. #standbyyourman #don‘tf*ckwiththeBrands.”) Then, twenty four hours later, Katy was in Vegas engaging in what has become and American rite of passage, her own bachelorette party, complete with binge drinking and Cirque du Soleil.
Sure, not everyone who has their bachelorette party in Vegas is accompanied by their best friend and party giver, Rihanna, but it all sounds refreshingly normal and fun to us. On Saturday afternoon, Katy, RiRi and 25 of their closest friends hung out at the Hard Rock Hotel pool, drank, Tweeted about drinking, and then took the official transportation of obnoxious partiers everywhere, the stretch Hummer limo, to the Cirque du Soleil show where they met the show’s cast, then headed to dinner and a strip club. Personally, we can’t get over the part where they met the cast at Cirque – just look at them all. We’re used to Katy and Rihanna being the flashiest people in the room, but they can’t even compare with these people!
For more pics of Katy’s hen party (as they say across the pond), check out our gallery below, it’s quite a cast of characters. And as for Russell Brand, he was charged with misdemeanor battery by the LAPD and was later released. All in all, a busy weekend for the pair.
