Katy Perry Polishes Her Diamond Certification Awards Before Releasing New Single ‘Woman’s World’

The chart-topping pop star shared a glimpse of her life at home and how she takes care of a few of her existing accolades. In a video shared to TikTok and Instagram, Perry used some cleaning spray and a cloth to scrub down five of her six diamond awards from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

According to the RIAA Perry has earned the Diamond trophy for singles ‘California Gurls’, ‘Roar’, ‘Firework’, ‘Dark Horse’, ‘Teenage Dream’, and ‘E.T’. Each of these singles has now sold over 10 million units. Notably, ‘Teenage Dream’ and ‘E.T’. officially earned their diamond status just this week, per the RIAA’s website.

“Just did some house cleaning this weekend hbu 💎💎💎💎💎,” Perry captioned the clip, in which she hilariously can be heard chewing gum as she spruces up her collection of accolades. In the video, she wore a washed leather jacket and shorts, and a neon orange cap, and proved she isn’t afraid to get her silver-painted nails dirty as she gave her plaques some TLC.

Perry’s “house cleaning” glimpse comes as she continues to tease her new single ‘Woman’s World’, which arrives ahead of its video the next day. Before wearing the song’s lyrics on a dress in Paris last week, Perry announced the single last month, and it is set to lead her forthcoming sixth studio album, which has yet to be announced.

It’s been a big year for Perry, who not only has been teasing her new era but also just celebrated her final season as an ‘American Idol’ judge. Perry got emotional during Abi Carter’s Idol win, as the finale marked her last stint as a judge, a role she first took on. “I think this probably will be my last show, my last season for Idol,” Perry confirmed in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this year. “I mean I love Idol so much. It connected me with the heart of America, but I feel like I need to go out and feel that pulse to my own beat, you know what I’m saying Jimmy?”

As Perry sets her sights on her next round of material and potentially some additional family time, she shared a touching Mother’s Day post in honour of both her own mother and her daughter Daisy Dove, 3½, back in May. In a sentimental carousel post that featured images of the moment she told partner Orlando Bloom she was pregnant, Perry wrote that she “told my mother that the day I realised how much she loved me is the day I had my own daughter, Daisy Dove. There is nothing like a Mother’s love… never take it for granted… Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers and caretakers — any way you come ♥️,” she wrote.
