This is so sad…
Katy Perry was busy performing in Australia this weekend, spending her amazing time Down Under celebrating International Women’s Day on Sunday at the Women’s Cricket World Cup Final. But back home in the United States, there was bad news waiting for the pregnant pop princess.
Perry herself broke the news publicly on Monday morning: her beloved grandmother passed away. Multiple outlets reported she was 99 years old. The Santa Barbara, California native shared a very poignant message and series of old pictures of the two of them (and Orlando Bloom!) in sharing the news with her fans and followers. She began:
“I don’t know when a soul enters a new vehicle, but if there is an afterlife where there’s a waiting room of the coming and going my mind wonders if the soul that is waiting to come into my world is getting a kiss on the forehead from my sweet Grandma that departed this earth yesterday. My heart hopes so.”
OMG. So, so sad.
Here’s the full post, along with the performer’s touching words (below):

I don’t know when a soul enters a new vehicle but if there is an afterlife where there’s a waiting room of the coming and going my mind wonders if the soul that is waiting to come into my world is getting a kiss on the forehead from my sweet Grandma that departed this earth yesterday. My heart hopes so. If she is able to speak with the soul in waiting the conversation would probably include “are you sure you wanna pick this wild group?!” There would most definitely be some sarcasm, a witty quip or two… tbh grandma probably had a glass of her favorite blush wine ready upon arrival to this afterlife… and a most fashionable look, jewels included, naturally. A lot of what I am is because of my father… and he is because of her. She started it all, as she used to remind us and I’m so grateful she did. Family… is there to show us what love can be… sometimes that journey of finding the love is tough to get to AND through but if you can open your heart and let the light lead the way you will find that incomparable love. Ann Pearl Hudson was a fighter. She survived the Great Depression, raised 3 kids on her own as a seamstress, making G strings for showgirls and other such characters in Vegas. She was always authentically herself, funny and full of all the sweet cozy things you think of when you think of grandmas. She gave me crisp dollar bills in hallmark cards, she let us eat her favorite almond cookies from the 99 cent store while we asked questions about the different fans she had displayed on her walls. She was a wonderful grandma and I will forever carry some of her in me. When my whit comes out, that’s Ann. When my authenticity comes out, that’s Ann. When my stubbornness comes out, hell, that’s Ann. When my fighter spirit comes out, that’s Ann. When my style comes out, that’s Ann. May she rest in deep peace and kiss the forehead of the soul to come and let them know everything is gonna be OK, especially now that they have gained an angel to look over them ♥️♠️
What a powerful, memorable message to make in honoring your grandmother… And how special she was able to reveal her pregnancy news.
Here’s to Katy and her whole family, as they navigate through this difficult time and the loss of the beloved family matriarch. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
In much better news from the pop queen’s orbit, Perry’s Aussie performance on Sunday included a very memorable moment. At one point during her song Wide Awake, the singer stopped performing, pointed to her growing baby bump, and said, “I hope it’s a girl.” The crowd went crazy with the comment, too, as you can see (below):
Awwwww! That’s so adorable and fun!
Thinking good thoughts for that little bun in the oven. Here’s hoping Katy’s wish comes true!
Of course, as we’ve been reporting, the Dark Horse singer publicly revealed her good pregnancy news to much fanfare over the past week. The 35-year-old mom-to-be and her hunky partner Bloom are now just months away from having a little bundle of joy in their lives. Truly such great news! And really, with the passing of her grandma (above), just another reminder of the endless circle of life…
