(VIDEO) Posted 10/11/13 6:15 pm EST by Jenna Hally Rubenstein in Celebrity , Photos Katy Perry channeled her inner-Mary Katherine Gallagher last night on “Fallon.” Katy Perry is usually the very picture of grace and serenity, no? Just look to her angelic Billboard cover , where she’s drenched in golden sunlight and surrounded by butterflies. And then there are the other times… times when Katy ditches the butterfly bullsh** and gets real. Which, in Katy Perry Land, means channeling Molly Shannon’s “SNL” character and not-so-repressed Catholic schoolgirl, Mary Katherine Gallagher , on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon”! Because pleated skirts, pigtails, and knee-highs!! And smelly armpits! (Although we’re pretty sure Katy’s incapable of B.O. — heck, for all we know, her pits smell like freshly baked cronuts.) Watch Katy Perry on “Jimmy Fallon” after the jump. Anyway, it wasn’t just Katy’s dead-on MKG ensemble that made us wanna be all “SUPAHSTAH!!!” We were also LOL-ing our faces off over those nerdy, awkward ” Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) ” faces Katy kept making while playing a game of Taboo with Jimmy! That’s Katy for you: never afraid to be a gorgeous goofball. Alternately, maybe we misinterpreted Katy’s entire shtick. Perhaps she rocked that leather, pleated, ” Dark Horse “-inspired skirt to pay homage to Britney Spears ‘ schoolgirl look circa ” Baby One More Time “? I mean, gotta keep the crowd guessing now that she’s burned all of her wigs and chucked all of those candy-themed onesies ! Either way, we commend Katy for having enough chutzpah to rock pigtails AND knee-high socks after the age of 14.

Stop whatever you’re doing (inappropriately Snapchatting your Facebook crushes, feeling like a plastic bag), because we have some veryyyy important news! Internationally renowned pop megastar and legally recognized queen of the jungle, Katy Perry , will perform her new Prism single, “Unconditionally,” LIVE at the 2013 MTV EMA ! Even though we often think of Katy as, like, the all-American girl next door who just happens to have access to crazy multimillion-dollar neon-colored styling, the ” Walking On Air ” singer is actually no stranger to the Europe Music Awards stage. In fact, she’s performed at MTV’s international awards show three times and hosted twice! We’re assuming that’s at least two more times than you’ve hosted the EMA, so… uh, #BowDown.
