Katy Perry is about to embark on her first headlining tour -- and she's giving it the same wonderfully wacky treatment that she brings to her red carpet fashions. Perry, 26, tells Rolling Stone that she is approaching her worldwide "California Dreams" tour as if it's a Broadway show.
"It's got a storyline...kind of loosely based on my life, but a cartoon version," explains Perry, who says she'll be doing no less than 15 costume changes throughout the show. She also has some pretty unique ideas about the atmosphere she wants to create -- even down to how the theater will smell.
"It's the first concert that's going to smell good," she promises. "It's going to smell like you're in cotton candy heaven."
So does that mean she's taking a cue from her fabulous Candyland-themed "California Gurls" video? Yes indeed -- but this time, she's adding some protein.
"I have this whole thing in my show that is about candy and cupcakes and meat," she says. "It's both sweet and shocking, but not in a sexual way." Intriguing!
The 95-date tour kicks off in February, but fans may get a sneak peek when Perry performs at the Grammys on February 13th. Though she's keeping her rehearsals under lock and key, she says that it's going to be her "favorite performance ever."
In addition to being nominated for four Grammys, Perry also is leading the nominees for Celeb Whose Wild Style We Can't Get Enough Of in our iVillage Entertainment Awards. Think she can yank the title out from under Lady Gaga? Cast your vote now!
