Katy Perry Plays Mini-Concert In Times Square

Much as she did at her listening party, Katy Perry turned Times Square into a beachy oasis on Tuesday.

Perry took to the stage at the Crossroads of the World, which had been transformed into a sand-filled vista in honor of the launch of the 2011 VW Jetta, and ripped through a taut three-song set that featured plenty of neon, some palm trees and, of course, her biggest hits.

Dressed in a skintight, neon-green dress (with pink palm trees), her hair pulled back in a pony tail (no blue wig on this day), Perry first pogo’d through “I Kissed A Girl,” thrusting her fists into the air, with her Day-Glo backing band (in electric shirts, skinny white ties, Ray-Ban shades) bobbing and weaving behind her.

“I’m Katy Perry, and this one is just because it’s hot,” she announced — to much “woo!”-ing — as she launched into “Hot N Cold,” which was still just as shiny and over-the-top as it was last year. She prowled the stage and pointed to revelers in the crowd (a feat much tougher than it would seem, considering there was a brand-new Jetta parked between her and the audience).

The tune got the onlookers moving and, hoping to build on that momentum, Perry segued into her current single, “California Gurls,” though not before delivering a little speech that made it very clear that despite her West Coast pride, yes, she still does love New York City very much.

“This is the first time I’ve sang this song not on a TV show, and I’m a little scared because I’m in New York City,” she laughed (perhaps forgetting that she’d performed the song for ad execs and TV journalists at the CW Upfront event in the city last month). “I love it here, but where are you going when it gets real icy cold, and you can’t walk without your snot freezing? California!”
