On Saturday, Perry posted images from her time in Capri, Italy, where she performed last week at the LUISAVIAROMA for UNICEF benefit. On the Capri leg of her trip, Perry revealed a plate featuring three pasta dishes in different sauces, clearly embracing the Italians' more petite approach to meal portion sizes.

Rose, Wine

While celebrating a friend's birthday with a cake that appeared to defy international regulations on pyrotechnics, Perry and a pal toured what looked like the ancient wine cellar of one Caprese restaurant. There, the singer asked: "Wine not?"

Glancing back at Katy Perry's IG posts from the past year, we love that she lives plant-based. She seemed to reveal this in a New Year's post starring Hidden Valley Ranch's new plant-based dressing. "Prayers answered," the singer captioned, before sharing two seriously delicious-looking vegetarian meals on plates loaded with tofu, rice, and veggies.

But, it appears she enjoys the occasional fresh catch.

Like a lot of us who are trying to live more consciously by following plant-powered diets, Perry still seems to switch it up sometimes with a bite or two of lean protein. Italy is known for its seafood selection, as she shared a snap in early June of fresh crab legs on a restaurant table during a stop in Venice.

From Venice to Paris then back to the south of Italy and more, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have seen a ton of Europe this summer. Snapped by the paps at different points of their tour, this couple seems to know that one of the best ways to experience any city is to see it on foot. (One prime time to get out and move?

Occasionally, they even go barefoot.

In a recent Instagram post, Katy Perry admired a friend's abs, saying, "Look at this six-pack!" and asked, "How can I get abs [sic]" as part of the post.

As a result of their dialogue, the friends broke into hilarious laughter. Do belly laughs strengthen abs muscles? Actually, science has shown that 15 minutes of laughter each day can help you stay fit.
