Separated at Birth: Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel

When Katy Perry burst onto the music scene back in 2007 with her hit single “I Kissed a Girl”, we thought we were seeing double because she is the spitting image of actress Zooey Deschanel! There are always actresses and singers who look alike but the similarity between these two talented women is uncanny - they could almost be twins with their dark hair, pale skin and blue eyes! They both also share a quirky fashion sense, a love of vintage fashion and bright colors. Both of them definitely have a strong sense of style both when dressing casually and at red carpet events - Katy loves sequins, Hello Kitty and things shaped like fruit so it’s always easy to spot her in a crowd! Both are California girls - Katy Perry was born October 25th, 1984 in Santa Barbara and Zooey in Los Angeles on January 17th, 1980. Despite both growing up in sunny California - they had very different upbringings. Katy’s parents are both Christian pastors and Zooey’s mom was an actress and her father a director.


Music Love

What a lot of people don’t know is that they both have a lot more common musically than you might think. Even though we mostly know Zooey Deschanel from movies like 500 Days of Summer, Elf and Almost Famous, she’s an accomplished singer and musician as well with two albums released called Volume One and Volume Two - she even sang in the movie Elf! She plays keyboards percussion, banjo and the ukulele and started her singing career performing in a jazz cabaret act called If All the Stars Were Pretty Babies. When she was in high school, she wanted a career in musical theatre! Katy Perry also started young - she knew she wanted to embark on a musical career so finished high school early so she could get started! By the time she became a famous pop star, she had already recorded a gospel album and another one which was never released. Now that’s what we call a happy coincidence - not only do Katy and Zooey look like twins, they both have the talent and passion for music!

last friday, i was home alone, my dad went to am AA meting and chiz, so i was alone for a couple og hours, i mean yeah i'm depressed, i cut, i have suicidal thoughts daily.......it's hard hurting inside..and just to see everyone pass you by like you're nothing, people judging you without knowing you. i also have social anxiety, and it really bothers me at school, so i try to walk fast in the halls, and i'm tense a lot. people criticize me once in a while.... ive been through some stuff, i've seen my mom abused infront of me thousand of times..........it's just hard...life. i'm scared to deal with it. so i made a noose, tried to attempt. long story short, my friend called the police, i got sent to the ER......my dad doesn't trust me alone for a mere 3 seconds, cause he thinks as soon as he turns his back i'll cut myself, or hang myself

So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?  Ello and I thinks he likes you and feels your the close enough friend what he can joke around with. He doesnt want to offend you or upset you and that shows he cares about your feelings. Me advises is take your time and see how your friendship develops.  If it feeels natural to ask him does he like you then ask him and theres no rush :) Good luck :love
