Style Wig Katy Perry in MTV Video Music Awards

The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards have seen lots of great hair and makeup, a few familiar faces, some seriously inspirational speeches, and plenty of nostalgia (hi, Mel B.). But then…there was Katy Perry’s “wig, snatched” moment. And it was not a moment that went over well with folks on Twitter.

For those of you who missed it, Pink delivered a powerful speech dedicated to her daughter. She touched on body image, confidence, androgyny, and gender norms all in just a few minutes. Immediately after, the camera cut to the show’s host, Katy Perry, who then did an odd, confusing, sort-of-emotional-but-we-can’t-tell-if-it’s-sincere bit, which included her dramatically removing a long blonde wig. It seemed like it was supposed to be revealing or inspirational, but it wound up coming off as awkward and disingenuous.
