Pop star Katy Perry is usually glamorous, whether on stage or on the red carpet, as befitting her status as one of the most recognisable names in music today.
But a reddit user posted a photo on Feb 15, 2014, to remind everyone that the celebrity was once like the rest of us.
"My roommate used to hang out with Katy Perry. Tonight he busted out this photo," the post simply read, reports The Straits Times Communities.
The singer looks almost frumpy in a big sweater and strumming a guitar, though the down-to-earth authenticity of the picture certainly makes it stand out from the usual shots of her in full make up or studio lighting.
