Katy Perry: pop star turned rapper? The singer hit the stage at the Radio 1 Live Lounge at BBC studios this week, and decided to test out her rap skills!

Katy even paid a little tribute to Brooklyn native Jay-Z by wearing a New York Yankees hat while she spit rhymes. Prior to her performance, she hinted that she’d be rapping, tweeting: 

“ISH is gonna get CRAY on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge starting @ 10am w/ @fearnecotton! Gonna show u a different side…I start singing @ 12!”

Katy, 27, also made a scene with her blue bob that she complimented with a gold and black curve-hugging dress. 

The singer seemed to have enjoyed her time across the pond as she tweeted: “That was so fun. Can we do it again soon? #radio1livelounge#livinglive.”
