Katy Perry reveals how she learned to do ‘doll eye’ trick

Katy Perry knows how to multi-task.

The “California Gurls” singer revealed in a TikTok for Vogue on Friday that she learned how to do a move called the “doll eye” — in which she keeps one eye closed and the other one open –in order to give her glam team feedback.

“I’ve sat in a hair and make-up chair for 15 years,” Perry, 38, explained.

“If they’re putting eyeshadow on this eye and someone is putting my hair up into a French twist, I want to give notes in real-time.”

The pop star also said while demonstrating the move, “I can close one eye at a time and still, like, maintain all function.”

Perry’s peculiar trick first went viral in October 2022, when a clip of her doing her “doll eye” in concert caught the attention of many fans.

During a performance at her Las Vegas residency, “Play,” the “Dark Horse” singer played around and made it appear as though she was unable to keep her right eye open.

Perry said the move came about after spending years in makeup chairs.

At the time, she even pressed her finger against her temple to make it seem as if she were trying to keep her eyelid from drooping.
