Katy Perry Channels Amy Winehouse for 'Interview' Cover

Katy Perry's hair went from cotton candy pink to seafoam blue, but now she’s gone Back to Black. The singer poses on the March issue of ‘Interview’ magazine, channeling the late Amy Winehouse.

If it weren’t for Katy Perry’s name splashed across the cover, you’d have no idea who this was. Her eyebrows are thicker, her hair is darker and frizzier, and then there’s the signature Amy Winehouse cat eyeliner. Katy Perry also may or may not have even gotten a nose job for this photo shoot. Okay, probably not, but it looks nothing like her.

It’s not the first time ‘Interview’ has transformed a celebrity. Back in September of last year, they turned Anne Hathaway into an unrecognizable vampire.

Meanwhile, Katy Perry is said to still be reeling from her divorce from Russell Brand. A source tells Hollywood Life:

“Katy has been very upset about the divorce. She never expected it to end and now she’s dealing with the aftermath. But her friends are telling her to get back out there and date. They don’t want her to waste time being upset over Russell.”

One can’t help but wonder what Brand, Amy Winehouse’s fan and friend, thinks of the cover. When the singer died, Russell released a lengthy tribute to her, and part of it read:

“She was a f-cking genius. Shallow fool that I am, I now regarded her in a different light, the light that blazed down from heaven when she sang. That lit her up now and a new phase in our friendship began.”
