It's cool, Zooey accepts "Faux-ey"'s apology.
Katy Perry really appreciates that actress Zooey Deschanel was up for impersonating her in the quirky, out-of-this-world video for "Not the End of the World." In the clip that dropped on Monday (Dec.2 1), a pair of blue aliens tasked with saving the pop star from Earth's impending demise accidentally zap KP lookalike Deschanel by mistake.
Funny story: The extraterrestrials aren't the only ones prone to mixing up the two. As it turns out, back in the early 2000s, bouncers were easily duped as well. During an Instagram Live video on Monday night with the former New Girl star, Perry let it slip that back before she was an international pop icon, she used to pretend to be Deschanel in order to get into clubs.
"I have to admit something, Zooey," said Perry, 36 in the Live video, during which the pair bonded about being moms and filming the music video several months ago during lockdown. "When I came to L.A., I was pretty much a nobody, and you were just getting so huge at that time -- it was like Zooey Deschanel ran the world. ... In that moment, I was so complimented to look like you.
