Katy Perry wasn’t sure what to do in Chicago with her free time other than museums. She asked for suggestions backstage at the United Center as a soldout crowd waited anxiously for the “Firework” singer to take the stage.
“Can you give me, like, a things-to-do list?” Perry said Thursday, the first of her back-to-back nights at the United Center. “If you get me a cheat sheet of what to do in Chicago, I will (do it).”
Either this is one of the few aspects of Perry’s life that doesn’t involve handlers and meticulous scheduling or Perry — who was decked out in the make-up and futuristic, glow-in-the-dark crop top and skirt she wore during her opening number — was simply making conversation.
