FLUFF: Katy Perry has a new boyfriend. YIKES.

Katy Perry posted an Instagram of her date with rapper Riff Raff

Why Katy Perry, why? Why in the name of God and Lycra would you do this to yourself?

Sure we can see that at some angles John Mayer has his charms. And for all his failings (and Lululemon yoga tights) Russel Brand  at least seems like a smart guy….

But this? This is just too much.

Yesterday Katy, 29, posted a picture to her Instagram saying “TBT to when I went on a date with Riff Raff aka @jodyhighroller”.

She was only throwing back to a week ago, when Riff Raff posted “”ON A DATE WiTH KATY PERRY SHE iS PURDY.”

So, who is this mysterious Riff Raff (real name: Horst Christian Simco, age 32) and is his vibe true to his name? In short, yes.

Imagine if Kid Rock was born in a Texan meth-lab then had a semi-successful career as a novelty rapper, and you’ve got Riff Raff.

You might not remember weirdo-director Harmony Korrine’s Spring Breakers, but you might remember seeing press shots of James Franco looking like this:

This is relevant because Franco’s character is based on Riff Raff. For real. He was so upset about the whole thing he tried to sue. Then he recorded this completely nonsensical and hyper, hyper sexualized diss track:

The pair apparently met while recording a track together, which maybe, kind of makes some sort of more sense than them dating?

Either way, we think Katy Perry probably needs her friends around her at this point.
