Katy Perry has never been one to skirt around her feelings. The Witness singer recently attended her brother David’s wedding, and when the time came for the bouquet toss, easily snagged the flowers right over other women’s heads.
But Perry, 33, didn’t let the moment end there. Instead, the fun-loving songstress shook the blooms over her head and jokingly ran off into the night as Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” blared in the background.
Perry shared the funny moment to her Instagram Wednesday, captioning the video, “When you crave companionship but run from love when you get it,” using the hashtags “happy made-up holiday of forced love” and “I love myself” and “I love you too.”
In our recent Real Weddings study, we learned that time-honored wedding reception traditions like the bouquet toss are declining in popularity, with the number of brides doing the toss down from to 49 percent from 53 percent back in 2016. And only about one in three grooms do a garter toss, approximately 37 percent, down from 41 percent in 2016!.
Among the many fans and friends who commented on her post, one name stuck out: that of her ex, Orlando Bloom, who shared a flirty comeback to Perry’s tongue-in-cheek caption.
“You can run but you can’t hide … from YOURSELF,” the Lord of the Rings actor, 41, wrote, according to eagle-eyed fans.
Bloom and Perry have sparked rumors of a rekindled romance as of late after being friendly with one another on social media and even vacationing together in the Maldives in January. (They also went to Japan together over New Year’s Eve).
The couple previously dated back in 2016 and even attended a Halloween party together in Hollywood that year (she went as Hillary Clinton and he was dressed up as someone presumed to be Trump). In November of that year, rumors began to circulate that the pair was no more; it took a few more months, until the following March, for them to issue formal statements about their relationship’s end.
“We’re friends. It’s good. We’re all grown-up. She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don’t think anybody cares what I’m up to,” Bloom told Elle UK one month later. “Nor should they. It’s between us. It’s better to set an example for kids and show that [break-ups] don’t have to be about hate.”
