A video of Katy Perry throwing slices of pizza while behind the DJ decks in a Las Vegas nightclub has gone viral.
The singer is currently in Vegas for her ‘Play’ concert residency, which began late last year and is is scheduled to roll on into October at the Resorts World Theatre.
In the 12-second clip, Perry can be seen at Zouk nightclub taking slices out of an enormous pizza box, before flinging them at partiers on the dance floor. Perry shared the video on Twitter, labelling herself as “a mother feeding her children”. Watch that below:

Perry’s Vegas residency kicked off on December 29, 2021, with footage and photos from the first night showing the concert series’ vibrant, over-the-top production. Part of that production includes Perry performing from the top of a giant snail.
In March, Perry celebrated winning a copyright infringement case against a rapper who claimed she stole his music to make her hit single ‘Dark Horse’. Performing the song live as part of her Vegas residency, Perry changed the lyrics to reflect the win, singing: “Just be sure before you take me to court, ’cause I’m a Scorpio, bitch.”
The singer’s last album was 2020’s ‘Smile’. In a two-star review of the record, NME said that “as much as you want ‘Smile’ to be a return to form, [Perry’s] fifth album’s songs fail to grip. All in all, ‘Smile’ lacks the fireworks of Perry’s record-breaking years.”
