Guess she couldn't contain her excitement: Katy Perry beat CoverGirl to the punch this morning and announced her new status as the latest spokeswoman for the makeup brand. Following the announcement, CoverGirl tweeted an ad featuring Katy with the line "Bold, bright, a beam of light" — which we can only assume is a reference to Perry's new album, Prism, set to drop on October 22.
Perry fits the model of nouveau CoverGirls to a T: she's gorgeous, edgy, with just a bit of tongue-in-cheek sass. She will join the ranks of musical spokeswomen such as Pink, Janelle Monáe, and DJ duo NERVO, all of whom have a hand in adding a new dimension to a classic brand. We can't wait to see Katy usher in some easy, breezy, beautiful new products — tell us, do you approve of CG's latest move?
