Katy Perry Lives It Up at MTV Video Music Awards Afterparty!

Giving in to her night owl tendencies, Katy Perry hit up a shindig at the Dream Hotel in New York City after the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards last night (August 25).

The Firework hitmaker donned a black leather bra top and plaid skirt as she strolled inside the soiree to mingle with her fellow pop stars.

Earlier in the evening, Katy closed out the VMAs with a live performance of her new single Roar under the Brooklyn Bridge.

Perry explained, “It”s a song about standing up for yourself, who can be the biggest bully in the equation — yourself…[It] can get in your way. It”s a song about speaking up for yourself and having the strength to do that.”
