Katy Perry follows Lady Gaga in mermaid trend

A few weeks ago Lady Gaga tweeted an introduction to her latest alter ego, Yuyi the Mermaid, describing her as “a reincarnation of my birth + artistic spirit. In incubation, awaiting a human lover to save her.”

Now, Katy Perry has posted a photo of herself as a mermaid on Twitpic.

As MTV points out, neither Gaga nor Perry are the first pop stars to tap into mermaid mythology, and notes that mermaids are popping up elsewhere in pop culture at the moment – in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and in several new novels.

Gaga tweeted that her new video featuring Yuyi was just days away, adding the hashtag #YuyiIsReal. So expect the current resurgence of interest in mermaids to intensify very soon.
