Katy Perry Is A Doll... Literally!

After the last few weeks events, I am thoroughly convinced that the world is going to hell in a hand basket doused with gasoline! And this -ish right here don't make it no better.

After spending spring and summer re-writing the record books with the seven-week Billboard Hot 100 #1 single “I Kissed A Girl,” , pop/rock phenom Katy Perry takes one more dive into pop culture iconography with a doll created in her likeness.

Wow... so where is the Janet doll? Or the Madonna doll? Just because you kiss girls that makes you an icon? Alrighty then!

The Katy Perry doll is currently available for pre-order through Integrity Toys’ Web site. Perry collaborated with fashion designer Jason Wu in the creation of the 12 inch-tall doll, which will be sold worldwide in a limited edition retailing for $49.99 from Integrity Toys, where Wu also serves as creative director for Integrity’s high-end fashion doll lines. Aaaaand I would need to pay fifty bucks for this thing? Get the *uck outta here dude!

This miniaturized version of Perry will be immediately recognizable as a signature fashion look, with her belted gold mini dress with accordion-pleated skirt, inspired by the wildly popular and 5 times MTV VMA nominated “I Kissed A Girl” video clip. The transformation of Perry into a doll is a fitting gesture to her earliest fans who saw her guest-starring with several dolls from Integrity’s Fashion Royalty line in the ironic and hilarious video “Ur So Gay,” and streamed it over 1.3 million times, laughing all the way.

“We are very excited to be working with Katy again,” Wu said. “Her fresh attitude, unique style and fun approach to music make her a perfect candidate to become a fashion doll.” Integrity Toys designs, makers of the Perry doll, produces and markets a variety of fashion dolls and other toys and related products, with a specialization in high-end and collectible fashion dolls.
