Simply, the star had a few things accidentally stuck in her teeth.
“Currently taking applications for real friends who aren’t afraid to tell me there’s quinoa in my teeth,” she wrote on Instagram.
Not to fret, Perry successfully kicked off the night’s show with her newest chart-topping single, “Chained to the Rhythm.” As she sang out her hit, the newly single star was joined by a large group of kids dancing in newsboy hats and overalls as well as a massive dancing hamster—of course.
“Well yeah, if you’re going this extreme it should, hello! I’m trying to get more attention, obviously,” she teased. “You can just grow it back. Honestly, I tried to take my full head of hair platinum and I had a lot of breakage. I’ve always wanted to look like Miley Cyrus. I’ve always wanted to have that pixie haircut, so I said, ‘Let’s just go for it.'”
