The 2013 American Music Awards red carpet: crying cats, horses on the red carpet and racism.

The stars have already hit the red carpet for the 2013 American Music Awards, and the night is already looking to be a promising one.

Lady Gaga arrived on a horse (as you do) and just to mix things up, Miley Cyrus wore a relatively tame pantsuit that is kms away from the oufit she wore for her last red carpet appearance.

Take a look:

The animal theme didn’t stop with Lady Gaga’s entrance, Miley Cyrus performed Wrecking Ball in front of a huge kitten in space while wearing a cat-printed bikini.


The AMAs night wasn’t without controversy: Katy Perry has been accused of racism after dressing as a geisha.

The singer dressed as a geisha during her tour of Japan but after wearing an almost identical costume during her performance of Unconditionally, the Twitttersphere went into meltdown accusing the 29-year-old of cultural misappropriation.

One tweeted: “This is the performance equivalent of an offensive Halloween costume,” another said, “Oh, good. Katy Perry is dressed as a geisha. I was afraid her sharp vocals would outshine her racism.”
