Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Dressed up As Mario and Luigi for a Go-kart Tour of Tokyo
Orlando also upstaged another Bloom while in town: the cherry blossom bloom.
Tokyo’s cherry blossoms may be in full bloom, but that isn’t the biggest story coming out of Japan today. No no, that title belongs to the other Bloom — Orlando Bloom, that is.
On Tuesday, Bloom was spotted in Tokyo alongside his ex-girlfriend (who may also be his current girlfriend, but we can't say for sure) Katy Perry as she kicked off the Asian leg of her worldwide tour.
Bloom was spotted in the audience during her show, and, according to People, the 33-year-old singer appeared to give him a shout-out as she introduced one of her songs. Perry said on stage that she “felt very loved. And this next song is about being so loved and so seen that you never ever have felt this feeling before. This feeling of love.”
She added, “This is ‘For Me You See,’ for Bubba Doo,” which reportedly is one of her pet names for Bloom.
Beyond sending thinly veiled shout-outs to Bloom, Perry also took her ex out to see the sites around Tokyo.
In an Instagram post, Bloom shared a selfie next to those famous cherry blossoms, simply captioning the shot, “Cherry blossoms bloom.”
Though the pair didn’t post any photos together, they were spotted laughing it up as they went on a go-kart tour of Tokyo. The best part? They did so while dressed as Mario and Luigi. Bloom sported a red sweater and blue jumpsuit to play pretend as Mario, while Perry wore a green Luigi costume with white sneakers.
You can go on the same tour as Bloom and Perry, too. The tour known as, what else, MariCAR, provides the costumes for guests before they jump into their go-karts to hit the streets. The tour will take you to several different neighborhoods around the city, allowing you to see the sights in your open-air vehicle. Though, drivers be warned: The carts have been the subject of several scandalous accidents, with 86 percent of all go-kart accidents in Tokyo involving foreigners.
