Katy Perry had the famous stars and stripes of the American flag on her chest while celebrating the Fourth of July on Thursday.

“BB UR A FIREWORK πŸŽ†,” Perry, 39, began her caption, before promoting her upcoming single, “Woman’s World,” which comes out July 11.


The upcoming track marks Perry’s highly anticipated return to music and follows her recent appearance at Paris Fashion Week last month.

The former “American Idol” judge gave fans a preview of the song by placing some of the lyrics on the extra long train of her red velvet Balenciaga dress last month.

Others speculated that more lyrics included, “Fire in her eyes / Feminine / She was born to shine.”

Before she left, she offered a touching tribute to 168 “Idol” contestants by featuring their faces on the maxi skirt she wore during the finale in May.

“I thought a good way to honor my time here would be to put the top 24 from each season on my skirt so they’re all there,” Perry told “Entertainment Tonight” at the time, before touching on the moment she showed . out of sight on the stage. “It was a fun surprise because I got up and you just saw more and more contestants.”
