When pop queen Katy Perry speaks up, the world tends to listen. When her request includes baked goods, the outpouring follows tenfold. Captioning, “Bake me a pie and you may get a surprise,” the blonde songstress shared her recipe for the “World’s Best Cherry Pie” across social media and via her fan newsletter, inciting a baking contest, all while most likely teasing the title of her next song, “Bon Appetit.”

In a Betty Crocker-esque visual, Perry broke her recipe down to last detail, noting you need flour, butter, water, pitted cherries, sugar and cornstarch (all usual pie suspects), to result in a pie featuring the “most delicious golden crust” and the “juiciest filling.”
Many fans suggested parts of the recipe might actually be lyrics from the forthcoming song. Back in March, Perry gave fans a sneak peak of “Bon Appetit,” which is rumored to also feature Ariana Grande, through a clip posted to her Instagram Story.
Considering Perry’s videos tend to be candy-colored, fantasy fueled explosions of visual and auditory stimulation, we can’t wait to see what she has in store for us.
In the meantime, mention of “cherry pie” might still bring to mind hair-metal band Warrant’s 1990 hit. To refresh your memory, watch the clip below as the leather-clad band rocks out while blonde Bobbi Brown dances around in scanty bits of denim daisy duke shorts.
