This Is What Katy Perry Has To Say About Her Viral ‘Clone Glitch’ Moment

ICYMI, a video from Katy Perry’s performance during her Play Las Vegas residency went viral recently for a terrifying reason. In the video, Perry could be seen struggling to control her twitching right eye leading fans to wild speculations rooted in longstanding conspiracy theories about pop stars.

For many years, fans have come up with bizarre explanations for odd celebrity behaviours and phenomenons, like Avril Lavigne having several clones who take over after one passes away, explaining why the singer seemingly never ages. This conspiracy theory was fanned further after Perry’s video went viral in which it seemed as if her clone was glitching.

But the ‘California Gurls’ singer was having none of it this time.

The pop star took to Instagram to dismiss the conspiracy theory and admit that the “broken doll eye” was a party trick after all.

“Welcoming all my #flatearthers #spaceisfakers #birdsarentrealers #skyisntbluers to come see my broken doll eye party trick IRL in Vegas next year! (sic)” wrote Perry.

She went on to announce that her Las Vegas residency has been extended to include 14 more shows.

This is not the first time Perry has been the subject of an enduring conspiracy theory. Ever since 2014, she has been believed to be the actual JonBenét Ramsey, an American child beauty queen whose murder remains unsolved to date. Theorists believe that six-year-old Ramsey’s murder was staged to make her disappear from the spotlight until she could emerge again, as a global pop star, years later. Needless to say, there has been no hard evidence to substantiate the theory.

What do you think of Perry’s explanation of the viral video?
