If my Gaga love is second to any artist, it's Katy Perry. Today, she headed to Facebook HQ in Palo Alto this afternoon for a Facebook Live chat, and revealed that her upcoming tour will feature a whole lot of geeky goodness. "I feel like I'm a child of the Internet," she says. So, she's incorporating some of the best online features into her upcoming shows.
Katy is partnering with Facebook to encourage fans to check into her concerts. She's also planning to encourage Twitter and Facebook usage during shows, displaying tweets and status updates in real time on screens.
After being asked several questions by Facebook's Randi Zuckerberg, Katy commandeered control of Zuckerberg's MacBook Pro, choosing her own fan questions to answer. In addition to questions about the tour, she shared some of her favorite new songs (Taylor Swift's latest), upcoming tour stops (Mexico and Brazil, among others), and also showing the Facebook audience her awesome pair of platform shoes.
