Katy Perry's Got a New, Banged Bob!

Once you’re finished checking out Katy Perry‘s maybe-possibly-engagement ring, we’ve got some more Perry style speculation to engage in. This time, we want to discuss her brand new do.

The singer stepped out this weekend on the arm of her love John Mayer sporting two noteworthy additions: The aforementioned ring, and a new shorter cut with bangs and blunt ends — a look she debuted on her Instagram (photo below). Our first reaction was “Must be a wig;” after all, the singer changes up her look as much as Lady Gaga, and her Cleopatra character in the new video for “Dark Horse” has a similar style, so we assumed Perry was just having a little fun with her alter ego’s look.

PHOTOS: Fashion faceoff! Vote on who wore her dress (and more!) best.

But after seeing her in the same chop for a few days now, we’re wondering if her hair change isn’t actually permanent. She’s styled it with curls and kerchiefs, jeweled headbands and stick-straight strands, and she appears to be totally comfortable with the new do. It also works well with her new, more laid-back vibe; the whole look is very “Low Maintenance Katy,” which is why we’re intrigued to see if this style sticks.

What do you think: Is this chop for good or for fun? Do you like her with short hair? Tell us in the comments!

Looks like a 5 year old cut it!

Katy is so cute, but this is a NO! Actually in the south, we would call this a “Hey’ll No!”

Looks like a really bad version of Krysten Ritter’s hair. Katy looks awful.

I really like the haircut on Katy. It suits her more than the long hair. :)

I hope it’s just a wig – the bangs are too short and uneven. Also looks dry as straw. It’s awful!

Not into this devil worshiper anymore.

My daughter recently got this cut, and weeks later…I still hate it! It’s hair and it will grow, but it is not attractive when it’s so blunt cut–not at all flattering. It’s a “NO”.

mrsmass on

she looks like a frumpy mess when she’s not all done up for the camera.

DaisyMoon on

It looks like she cut it herself…

Maria on

Everything about this stupid fool is fake. I have zero respect for her.
