Just a few days ago an unnamed source told reporters that an engagement was “inevitable,” so obviously the “Roar” singer knew exactly what she was doing when she arrived at the 2013 MTV EMAs on Sunday with a sparkly diamond solitaire ring on her left hand. On that finger.
Perry hasn’t yet issued a comment on the new bling, which seems remarkably understated if it was only intended as an accent piece (to be fair, Perry doesn’t seem to shy away from wearing rings on all her fingers during red carpet appearances). This is not a cocktail ring. This is a hitching ring.
Later in the evening, after Perry had defied gravity with a sky-high (and not in the Miley sense) performance of “Unconditionally,” her left ring finger was bare once more. Hmm.
Perhaps Perry was just trying to send Mayer a hint — or perhaps they’re waiting to announce the big news in some incredibly twee way, like a taped holiday duet for their fans. Either way, Perry looks great — and so happy.
