Katy Perry recently snatched the most popular celebrity on social media title from pop singer Justin Bieber. She now sits at almost 47 million followers on Twitter. So why do we love Katy Perry?

Here are 10 reasons.

1. This lady is not afraid of colour. She embraces it in her outfits and even with her hair. You never know what potent purple or pink she’ll break out next but we pretty much love it.

2. Katy can wear anything. The word ridiculous probably doesn’t exist in her closet. She’ll wear all items most of us would be arrested for wearing – and look gorgeous doing it. Katy wore a yellow block on her head for the 2011 Video Music Awards. A block. Enough said. 

3. She is fierce. We’ve watched her transform from a cute sexy kitten into a fierce tiger. Her song “Roar” tells us all about her transformation. “I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath, scared to rock the boat. I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire.”

4. She’s beautiful. I mean, those blue eyes, right?

5. She’s fearless. Her hit single “I Kissed a Girl” made ’fessing up to locking lips with your gal pal cool.

6. She’s inspirational. Her songs make you want to stand up and fight for yourself such as Firework. “Cause baby, you're a firework. Come on, show 'em what you're worth”.

7. Her lyrics are also unconventional. “Do you ever feel like a plastic bag?”. Well, no not really.

8. She’s not shy to be a girly girl. She once had a stage decorated with fake candy floss, lollipops and other candy.

9. She has a unique voice.

10. She’s funny. She wore big spectacles and a braces headgear in her music video "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”.
