Katy Perry Surprises Museum Goers with Her Creepy Floating Head

No flash photography, please.

Visitors at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art expected a low-key afternoon admiring masterworks and High Line views. They were treated to a strange encounter with Katy Perry, who took up exhibition space and posed as the album art from her single “Bon Appetit.”

Vanity Fair‘s Derek Blasberg rounded up museum goers and led them to a room promising an art installation by “Katheryn Hudson,” Perry’s birth name. When they entered the space, Perry’s actual head was poking out from under a table surrounded by a platter of food.

“Is that Katy Perry?” they began to wonder, and indeed it was. The whimsical prank brings “Bon Appetit” to life in a fancy space, but Perry doesn’t take herself (or the stunt) too seriously. Some visitors look a little lost, others applaud, and many others just don’t know what to say as Perry’s disembodied head starts singing The Sound of Music soundtrack and “I’m A Little Teapot.”
