For reasons we do not understand, Katy Perry is extremely popular. Her music is mediocre, her outfits are seemingly chosen by a drunk, blind stylist, and she tweets things like “Make grilled cheese fer you da best,” but no matter! The people of the world have spoken, and they want more Perry, not less. So Cosmopolitan is giving it to them.
Cosmo has announced that Perry will grace the front of the magazine’s first ever global cover. That means Perry will appear on the front of all 62 editions of the glossy. Joanna Coles, Cosmo’s editor, considered Perry the perfect fit.
“Katy’s music and attitude have universal appeal to young women everywhere,” said Coles, in a statement. “She crosses all cultural boundaries. Her music is soulful and empowering in equal measure.”
What does it mean that Perry is a global icon? Well, before we answer that, we’re going to have a drink or 10. We’ll let you know what we come up with later.
