Katy Perry opened the Victoria’s Secret fashion show last night in the greatest coming together of man’s favourite things since, well, the hamburger. The singer, who once did a great job of appearing on the front cover of FHM, headlined a show that included the likes of Candice Swanepoel, Adriana Lima, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alessandra Ambrosio. For anyone wondering where to book their next city break, this all happened in New York.

The 26-year-old, who had a hen do in Las Vegas then flew to India to ride an elephant and marry Rusell Brand in a traditional Hindu ceremony last month, wore one dress that looked like The Purple One from the Quality Street tin and another that looked like a Liquorice allsorts. She performed a reliable string of her pop-tastic songs, including Hot N Cold, Teenage Dream and California Gurls. The crowd were very pleased.

So, is this the greatest thing ever? For FHM, it’s right up there with the Super Soaker 500, Fizzy Chewits and Batman. A strange mix, you’ll agree, but that’s because we broke our leg playing football on Sunday and now we’re full of co-codamol and nothing really makes sense but we’re just going to keep on grinning. To tell you the truth, we almost don’t believe this story even as we’re writing it. It’s too weird and sexy and colourful and… Quick! Dictionary!… AMAZEBALLS to be real.

Oh, there you are on the pink carpet, Katy Perry. You’re just wearing a skirt and a top now, but that's cool. Have fun at the party. Make sure you eat something. Don't speak to any strange men. Call us when you're leaving. Okay, love you, bye.
