Rocker Katy Perry Reinvents the West Ham United Soccer Jersey

6 11 2009

The soccer fans amongst us might be familiar with the West Ham United Umbro 2009/10 home jersey. However, at last night’s MTV European Music Awards, rocker host Katy Perry donned a new incarnation of the Hammers kit to pay tribute to boyfriend Russel Brand’s favourite soccer team.

Katy’s West Ham kit consisted of a corset and tight-fitting shorts.  The top featured the team’s badges on each breast while the shorts featured  Russell’s nickname of ‘Rusty’ on its back.

In response to Perry’s act, Russell posed the following on his Twitter page:

Wow. Now MY GIRLFRIEND has worn a West Ham basque while hosting the EMA’s. What a day! I might revive Gandhi and ask if he wants to be mates.

Yes I will be taking her to a game – West Ham Vs Everton. And, before it begins, no I won’t be taking her up the Arsenal.

It’s not known how much Santa Barbara, California – born Perry knows about the Beautiful Game.
