If you’re like us* and begin solidifying plans for an entire year before January’s even half over, then let The Rooster make a suggestion for September 30th, 2014. Katy Perry’s people announced yesterday that the wonder-why-she’s-so-relevant starlet will be touring our great land starting June 22nd.

The “Prismatic” tour will come through Denver and the Pepsi Center on September 30th. General sale of tickets begins January 27th through whatever ticket outlet the Pepsi Center uses. Tickethorse? Something like that.

The news of the impending concert is of course a trend in the music industry to announce bigger tours months, even years, ahead of time to gauge ticket sales and possibly pull out (cough Kanye cough) if demand doesn’t meet certain standards. Considering it will be tax time soon, the move to announce is probably just another ploy to pinch everyone's hard earned benjis. But by all means, don’t let our sour notes of jealousy dictate how you spend hundreds of dollars.

Our guess? Mrs. Mayer will tour with fetus in tow. The two stars have tried to quell rumors of a little one planned for the near future, but nature is nature and Hollywood loves to throw in some babies for extra media attention. We don’t see why it wouldn’t happen.

And in keeping with our hard-hitting journalistic approach to everything, we’ve wasted – edit – used our time wisely googling baby predictors to come up with these images of what the little flesh-ball will look like.

*Note: we don’t plan for anything, ever, so please don’t trust us when we say we have the next 8 months of our lives penciled in.
