Fluff: Katy Perry dresses as a geisha. Gets slammed.

It’s the morning after the 2013 American Music Awards. And everyone’s talking about… Katy Perry.

Miss Perry has been accused of racism after dressing as a geisha for her performance of ‘Unconditionally’.

It’s not without context – the singer dressed as a geisha during her tour of Japan, and decided to re-use the costume for her AMA performance. But after seeing it yesterday, 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.”

Check out her outfit in the gallery, as well as all the red carpet arrivals:

And in other AMA news…

Miley Cyrus just keeps going above and beyond; her performance of Wrecking Ball featured a huge space kitten, and she dressed in a matching cat-printed bikini. At one point, the kitten cried, and everyone was sad. Take a look:

– Lady Gaga rocked up to the red carpet on a horse, presumably just because she could. Miley Cyrus was not at all impressed, and proceeded to complain to red carpet reporters: “What a f—ing … sorry! What a big scene stealer! Next time, I’m going to come in on a dragon.”

We’re going to hold her to that.

– Justin Timberlake won three AMAs and, on his way to accept the second one, made a little pit-stop at Taylor Swift’s seat so they could exchange Taylor-Swift-excited-faces. Check out the GIF that resulted – it’s pretty excellent.

– Speaking of Taylor – she was voted the American Music Awards artist of the year for a third time, and won four awards all up.
