Billboard says that Katy Perry, who is currently pregnant with her first child with Orlando Bloom, has had to delay the release of her new album, It–I mean Smile. Her sixth album was supposed to come out on August 14 but has been pushed back two weeks over some sort of “production delays.” Cut to the Swifties rebooting the Katy Perry/Taylor Swift feud by saying that folklore’s sales have made Katy shake off her clown wig with fear and so she can’t release an album called Smile when all she’s doing is frowning.
Katy announced on Instagram that we’ll have to wait fourteen whole days for her album. It’s been months of quarantine: I feel like I can wait for anything at this point. This whole album is very clown-themed and so she revealed her delay with a pie to her face. Which is better than the other common clown activity of stalking a town to instill fear into residents. She blamed “unavoidable production delays“ on her pushback but promised to start doing #SmileSundays–Instagram Live sessions where she talks about the album. Also if she gives birth to her baby #SmileSundays will have to end since you know… she’ll have a baby to deal with.

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
She may talk more about her album delay tonight, she’s supposed to do a SiriusXM Q&A later.
I think the Katy Cats will survive the two-week delay of her album. Meanwhile, Katy can just do more clown-related shit to promote her album, shoot water from a flower, make balloon animals, kill and feast on little children. You know, just regular clown things!
