Katy Perry took to Instagram to update fans with a number of new photos of herself and announced that she will still release her fifth studio album, Smile, next month, but that it has been postponed by two weeks to Aug. 28.
The “Waking Up in Vegas” hitmaker stunned in a fitted white dress with beads of the same color embroidered all over. The garment also featured different colored tinsel tassels. Underneath, Perry wore a white shirt with a large collar and a huge red tie. She styled her long wavy blond hair down with a middle part and applied a bold red lip as well as nail polish of the same color.
In a four-photo upload, Perry posed in front of a cloudy blue sky backdrop.
In the first shot, the entertainer placed both hands on her hips. The majority of her face was covered because friend and designer Jeremy Scott was holding a cream pie in his hand in her direction. Perry appeared wide-eyed and ready to be pied.
In the next slide, her face was completely covered in the pie. Perry sported the same pose and had the foil from the pie resting on her shoulder.
In the third frame, the American Idol judge wiped a lot of cream off her so her face was visible. Perry sported a subtle smile and looked over to her left.
In the fourth and final frame, she was captured with her finger in her mouth, licking off the cream.

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. Due to unavoidable production delays, my album #SMILE will now be released ✌????weeks later on August 28 ☹️ 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! 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! 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! ♥️???? Love, Katy

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, she showed off her huge bump in a white long-sleeved crop top that featured her new album title. Perry paired the ensemble with tiny striped yellow-and-red pajama shorts and sported her short blond hair down. She was snapped inside what looked to be her bathroom from the thighs-up and was clearly glowing.
