Katy Perry With Miley Cyrus: This Picture

Katy Perry was a relatively new star but one of the most famous singers in the world already when she hit the red carpet at the MTV Awards in 2008.

Wearing a white diamante halter neck, glitter eye makeup, corkscrew curls and scarlet lipstick, the star played up to her cartoonish image.
