The coronation celebrations for the new King continued on Sunday with a magnificent concert held at Windsor Castle. The star-studded event featured renowned artists such as Lionel Richie, Olly Murs, Tom Cruise, Take That, and Katy Perry.
Katy Perry, who had an eventful day before when she accidentally got lost in Westminister Abbey during the actual coronation, made a stunning appearance in a glamorous gold gown. She took the stage and delivered powerful performances of her hit songs ‘Roar’ and ‘Firework,’ captivating the thousands of attendees, including the King and Queen.
While the audience thoroughly enjoyed Perry’s performance, there was one moment in her set that raised a few eyebrows. In her song ‘Firework,’ Perry sings the line: “You just gotta ignite the light. And let it shine. Just own the night. Like the Fourth of July.”
For those in need of a history refresher, the Fourth of July is a significant date in the United States as it commemorates the country’s independence from British rule in 1776.
This mention of the Fourth of July during the concert for the British King led to some humorous reactions from the audience. One person commented, “Is it awkward that Katy Perry reminded everyone to ‘own the night like the 4th of July’?” Another jokingly suggested that singing about the Fourth of July at the coronation could be considered an “arrestable offense.”
Some individuals found amusement in the situation, with one person finding it hilarious that Perry sang about the Fourth of July at an event celebrating the coronation of King Charles III. It became a topic of light-hearted banter, with others playfully comparing Perry’s outfit to a toffee penny from a box of Quality Street chocolates.
Despite the momentary controversy surrounding the Fourth of July reference, Katy Perry’s performance undeniably stole the show during the coronation weekend. Her energetic stage presence and iconic songs resonated with the audience, creating a memorable and entertaining experience for all.
As the coronation celebrations continued, Perry’s performance became a highlight, showcasing her ability to captivate the crowd and add a touch of unexpected humor to the event.
