Katy Perry is turning heads!

On Wednesday, the singer, 39, showed off her black thong and backside as she took to the red carpet at the 2024 Billboard Women in Music Awards.

Perry wore the thong beneath a red lace-up skirt, which she teamed with a matching peplum corset and a pair of sky-high black heels. The American Idol judge accessorized her look with a pearl necklace and pearl drop earrings, and dark locks in a long, sleek pony.

The "Bon Appétit” singer also showed off her new prosthetic tattoo. Offering a closer look at the butterfly creation on her Instagram following the evening, Perry shared a snap of her back and tagged makeup artist Hugo Villasenor.

"You’re my butterfly, sugar, baby,” Perry captioned the post.

The "Roar" singer's post also featured videos of Swift performing her songs "You Belong with Me" and "Bad Blood.” During Swift's performance of the latter track, Perry flipped her camera around to show herself pulling a shocked face and singing along to the lyrics, which were seemingly inspired by the duo’s years-long complicated relationship.
