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!

What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried

She isn't jealous she is just dissappointed that you chose to get lessons when she did to get better . She had to get better to catch up to you so you can enjoyher as your best friend. Then you went ahead and got lessons as if you needed them. She is just upset that you showed off a talent that she didn't have. And she tried to get better to impress you but you got better as well. Which kept her at the stage she will always be at my best friend sings way betyer than me but I try.

It may be hard but break it down to them we aren't friends but we can be associates. It may leave them a bit dissappointed but tell them we aren't in the same category to be as close as friends.
