Color Stories: Katy Perry’s Blue Hair

What inspired Katy Perry’s blue streak? While she’s been known to rock an electric-blue wig while performing, the songstress took it to the next level when she dyed her natural locks a deep, shimmering blue hue. Could it have been inspired by her mood after her divorce from Russell Brand or perhaps lending her voice to the Smurfs movie?
