Katy Perry ‘Might Just Wear a Diaper’ to the 2016 Met Gala Because Her Dress Is That Big

Fashion first. Katy Perry’s Met Gala 2016 dress is so extravagant that she might be wearing a diaper underneath it tonight. The “Roar” singer, 31, told reporters at a CoverGirl event in New York City on Sunday, May 1, that she’s concerned about being able to use the bathroom at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Annual Costume Institute Benefit.

"I'm wearing a really large thing tomorrow, which will be very difficult to use the restroom in. I might just wear a diaper. I don't really care. I am just going to be looking around for people to help me to the restroom," Perry told reporters ahead of fashion's biggest night. "I'll feel like one of those brides or something, but there's a lot going on with the dress."

Last year the “Dark Horse” singer wore a custom strapless Moschino dress that was covered in pop art graffiti.

Perry, who is rumored to be attending the Met Gala with Orlando Bloom as her date, according to E!, told reporters at the event on Sunday that leading up to the bash, she attempts to lie low.

“It’s hard, because New York is all about nightlife and lack of self-control, so I’ll try and put myself to bed with a Sleepytime tea tonight,” she said of her prep. “I’m not great with mornings. … I’ll probably have a facial this evening and do some of those LED lights — which are probably a crock of crap — but I do them anyway.”
