Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Katy Perry was spot­ted walk­ing through Syd­ney Air­port when she was per­form­ing 'live' on 'The Voice Aus­tralia' on Sun­day. The 32-year-old pop star's per­for­mances of 'Chained To The Rhythm' and 'Swish Swish' were trum­peted as be­ing live by the Nine Net­work, but the broad­caster has since been forced to ad­mit Katy's ef­forts were pre-recorded. A spokesper­son told News Corp: "There are in­stances where we have to pre-record a per­for­mance just prior to the broad­cast be­cause of the de­mands of stag­ing. "The pro­duc­tion com­plex­i­ties of per­for­mances like Katy's means sets can't al­ways be struck and re-set dur­ing the time al­lowed by a com­mer­cial break." Sim­i­larly, Katy's ap­pear­ance on 'Sun­rise' yes­ter­day morn­ing has been pro­moted as be­ing live. But a spokesper­son for the Seven net­work has con­firmed Katy's seg­ments on the show was pre­re­corded last week. The spokesper­son ex­plained: "Katy Perry has recorded her por­tions of the show. We let fans know that last week, by invit­ing them to come down and see her dur­ing her ap­pear­ance." Mean­while, Katy re­cently ad­mit­ted she was "scared" of be­ing her­self when she first en­tered the mu­sic in­dus­try. The chart-top­ping pop star re­vealed she cre­ated her on-stage per­sona "out of protection". She said: "A lot of peo­ple are liv­ing in fear from some­thing that hap­pened in their child­hood, or some form of PTSD they picked up along the way, and I cre­ated this won­der­ful char­ac­ter called Katy Perry that I very much am, and can step into all the time, but I cre­ated that char­ac­ter out of protection. "I was scared that if you saw me, Kath­eryn Hud­son, the girl wear­ing the go­ing, 'OK, I've been up­set my whole child­hood so I'm go­ing to show the world I am some­thing, that I am go­ing to do some­thing and that I am enough'. "I didn't want to be Kath­eryn Hud­son. I hated that, it was too scary for me, so I de­cided to be some­one else."
