FAKEY PERRYAI Generated Katy Perry at Met Gala 2024 Goes Viral

AI-generated images of Katy Perry and Rihanna at the Met Gala have taken social media by storm. Despite their absence from the star-studded event, fake photos of the pop icons circulated on X, formerly Twitter, leaving fans both amused and bewildered.

Katy Perry added fuel to the fire by sharing two AI-generated images of herself on Instagram, playfully captioning them “couldn’t make it to the MET, had to work.” One particularly convincing image of Perry in a floral gown garnered over 13 million views on X, sparking a frenzy of reactions from fans who fell for the ruse.

“I really reposted this believing it was true,” confessed one fan, echoing the sentiment of many who were fooled by the lifelike images. Even Perry’s own mother fell victim to the AI magic, prompting the singer to jokingly warn her, “lol mom the AI got you too, BEWARE!”

Meanwhile, an AI-generated image of Rihanna also captured the internet’s imagination, depicting the singer in an elaborate embroidered gown adorned with fauna and birds. According to reports, the 36-year-old songstress was unable to attend the event due to illness, but that didn’t stop her virtual counterpart from making a splash on social media.

The digital hijinks didn’t stop there. Fake photos of Dua Lipa surfaced early in the evening, showing her in an off-shoulder corseted gown. However, the British-Albanian singer later made a grand entrance at the gala in an entirely different ensemble, proving that sometimes reality is stranger than fiction.

The annual Met Gala, known for its extravagant fashion and star-studded guest list, draws A-list celebrities and fashion icons from around the world. This year was no exception, with Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Hemsworth, and Bad Bunny among the attendees. Hosted by Vogue’s Anna Wintour, the event raises funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, with tickets rumored to cost upwards of $70,000.
