Katy Perry slammed for being 'jealous' after paying $50,000 to stop fan going on a date with Orlando Bloom

Katy Perry is the ultimate petty queen.

While onstage at the One Love Malibu benefit show on Sunday night - in support of those affected by the Woolsey wildfire - the pop-star took part in auditioning off a date with her boyfriend Orland Bloom, an actor whose defining role was being splattered across teen magazines in the 00's.

Perry, understandably, got a little jealous and didn't let Laura - the woman who was winning the bid for the motorcycle date with Bloom - respond, she simply put down an additional $30,000, and shut down the bidding.

"So, I just wanted to start and say that he's going to do a motorcycle ride…and then you can have lunch," Perry, who also performed during the benefit show, told the audience. "That also means, that when you are on the motorcycle with him, you're holding him in a way that I am not excited about!"

"You're holding his pecs and his six-pack! And it's so glorious!" Perry asserted before the bidding started, and reached $20,000."What's your name?" the Firework singer asked the $20,000 bidder, who revealed that her name was Laura. "Girl, you're gonna love this! I'll send you on your way, I'll put the helmet on you. Hold on tight."
Then, just before the auction closed, Perry told Laura "I'm sorry, I'm buying it for $50,000."


Perry is facing some backlash online, with people saying that her move was in poor taste. Responding to the Instagram video of the moment, one fan wrote "That's only pocket change for you! You could have donated and let the fan have her once in a lifetime experience!"

I mean, these people obviously don't know what it's like to auction a date off with your significant other - who also happens to be an adonis, and a former Sindarin elf.

If you have $50,000 to casually throw around, do it! It's for charity, after all.

Personally, I think this was the best possible outcome - Bloom gets to ride around on his motorbike, the charity gets $50,000, and Katy gets to save some girl called Laura $20,000, which is just as well as he's crashed at least once, per Wikipedia.

In related news, Perry attacked President Trump on Twitter, after he suggested that the devastating wildfires were the result of "forest mismanagement".

"There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!" the 45th President of the United States wrote on the social media platform.

"This is an absolutely heartless response," Perry responded. "There aren’t even politics involved. Just good American families losing their homes as you tweet, evacuating into shelters."
