Katy Perry NOT in Kelowna

Castanet's Katy Perry look-a-like is actually Allison Lambert, an Engineering student at UBCO.

Thank you for the fun emails, we will post a few of the responses later today.

Our April Fool's story: Pop superstar Katy Perry was sighted vacationing in Kelowna. 

Castanet reader Alex Ryder and some friends ran into her Sunday night at the Delta Grand while she was letting loose with a small entourage. 

"Our run-in with her was brief, but she was very gracious and posed for a couple of photos. She signed the back of a parking ticket I had on me and then was gone" said Ryder. "She said she's loving the Okanagan, and is enjoying being out of the media spotlight for a bit before she goes back to her tour in Australia".  While she didn't mention how long she may be in Kelowna, Ryder thought that she "might be in town for a few more days". 

When asked if he would be submitting the parking ticket for payment Alex replied, "I'll pay the ticket, but they're not going to keep it". 

Perry's next show is in in Melbourne, Australia on April 12th.
