'If there’s anything 2020 taught me, it’s to not get too attached to plans...'

July 27, 2020

Don’t cry Katy cats, keep smiling…good things take time. Katy Perry took to Twitter on Monday ,July 27 to updated followers on the delay of her highly-anticipated fifth studio album, SMILE. 

The “Daisies” singer explains that the delay to the new LP is unfortunately inevitable because of technical delays. Katy forlornly shares, “Welp. I hate to throw this bad news at you like a pie in the face... but if there’s anything 2020 taught me, it’s to not get too attached to plans and be malleable.”

The tweet comes with four promotional photos of Perry rocking a clownish glam look while quite literally being pied in the face. It’s as if the “unavoidable production delays” unexpectedly hit her like a pie in the face.

The “California Gurls” singer also tweets that the album will arrive two weeks later than the original date on August 28th.

Additionally, Katy makes an effort to make it up to her fans and says, “starting this Sunday (Aug 2) and until the album drops (or until #Babycat... whichever comes first ) join me for #SmileSundays! Every Sunday, time TBA soon, I’m going to go on LIVE for 30 minutes or more and talk all things SMILE.”
