Today Katy Perry turns 29, and what a year she has had. She burnt the blue wig and ditched the kooky costumes, swapping her signature cartoon-tastic get up for sleek Chanel and Emanuel Ungaro. She also cemented her fashion credentials with her first ever US Vogue cover, where she rose from the mirrored minis and candy-inspired cocktail frocks, with porcelain skin, a deep, rose red pout and a Rodarte dress. She also frolicked around the jungle for her new single 'Roar', opened up about her split from Mr Brand and debuted a third fragrance. Jennifer Lawrence might be the internet's dream BFF, but we think Katy Perry is pretty awesome too. Here is why, in GIF form, we wish we were besties 4eva with Katy...
1. She doesn't take herself too seriously
2. She'll go to serious lengths to get the perfect BFF selfie
3. This is a girl who knows how to P-A-R-T-Y
4. And for your birthday she'll recreate The Hangover...
5. She'd invent a secret handshake just for the two of you
6. She would put together a mean selection of sleepover snacks
7. She'll always give you her honest opinion
8. We love that she went in for a smacker with Harry Styles
9. She'll understand your heartbreak
10. And would always fight for you
11. She'd be the best guest at your fancy dress parties
