Katy Perry Delivers ‘Smile’ Album Delay News With a Pie in Her Face: See the Announcement

Katy Perry didn’t mean to upset KatyCats when she announced on Monday (July 27) that her fifth album Smile won’t appear until Aug. 28. So she did something silly to turn their frowns upside down.

“Welp. I hate to throw this bad news at you like a pie in the face…but if there’s anything 2020 taught me, it’s to not get too attached to plans and be malleable,” she wrote on Instagram as the caption for a series of photos where the pop star got, welp, a pie in the face.

Unavoidable production delays pushed back the release date from August 14 to August 28, but she’s not done clowning around anytime soon: To make up for the two-week delay, Perry booked up almost every Sunday in August for #SmileSundays.

“To make this up to you, starting this Sunday (Aug 2) and until the album drops (or until #Babycat …whichever comes first) join me for #SmileSundays!” she continued. “Every Sunday, time TBA soon, I’m going to go on LIVE for 30 minutes or more and talk all things SMILE you’ll see new merch… I’ll play some snippets… maybe we’ll go live together… we’ll def have a good chat!”

With the finish line for her album and baby delivery coming up soon, Perry affectionately thanked her fanbase for sticking around for the marathon. “Clowns-n-Cats – Thanks for being so flexible in this time… it’s a wild one, for sure, but I hope the patience will be worth the wait!” the 35-year-old superstar concluded.
