On Wednesday, the pop singer’s 34th birthday, she shared a series of photos of herself posing dramatically in front of a Justin Bieber poster. She rocks a neon-green leopard-print dress, silver knee-high boots and neon-green eyeliner for the impromptu photo shoot. In the last image, she even caresses Bieber’s abs.
“Teen idol/American idol,” she captioned the post, which looks equal parts earnest and tongue-in-cheek. That’s when her boyfriend dropped a simple-yet-hilarious comment: “Thirsty.”
The birthday girl and Bieber have long held a flirtatious friendship. Fans will remember that Perry notoriously grabbed the “Love Yourself” singer’s rear end in a 2014 viral video.
As for Bloom, he and Bieber have something of a rocky history. That same year, the Pirates of the Caribbean star reportedly “took a swing” at the pop star at a restaurant in Ibiza, Spain. Bieber reportedly when on a date with Miranda Kerr in 2012, while she was still married to Bloom, which could have played a role in the alleged altercation.
