Refusing to decide who to cheer for during England's World Cup match against the U.S.A. on June 12, the singer opted to wear a special dress incorporating the flags of the U.S.A. and England.
Katy Perry commissioned a special dress incorporating the flags of the U.S.A. and England, to show she was impartial as the two national teams met in the World Cup on Saturday, June 12. The "I Kissed a Girl" star, who is engaged to soccer fan Russell Brand, was a special guest on British TV show James Corden's "World Cup Live" on Saturday evening, June 12, following a 1-1 draw between the two nations.
And, in typical flamboyant style, Perry toted a short rubber dress which featured the stars and stripes as well as the U.K.'s national flag. As she took to the sofa, she shouted, "America! England! It's not about football; I feel very divided in general. It's hard. I'm in England and so if I say, 'Screw America' I'll get press that says 'Katy hates her home place!' I thought it was a good game."
Perry also revealed that Brand is following the tournament closely as he works, saying "I know that Russell has it in his contract for his movie if England get to the finals he's going (to South Africa)." Brand wasn't celebrating on Saturday night, however, Robert Green, the goalkeeper for his beloved West Ham United, gifted the U.S.A. their equalizer by fumbling the ball on the goal line.
