While we were on the beach, Katy Perry was entertaining the masses and circumventing the globe at the same time. Swide brings you the behind the scenes shots of Katy's world tour...
Here at Swide we're keen on dispelling myths...the backstage chaos at fashion shows, drunken dancing at glamourous parties and of course, the inevitable celebrity tantrums. We had to admit however, we were a little surprised at the behind the scenes images of Katy Perry's summer tour posted on her twitter account - a) aside from the jet-lag it looks like hard work and b) where are all the flunkies?

KATY PERRT: "It's HAILING on my poor Brisbane fans right now!!! They r still standing in line! AMAZING! luv u guys. so punk!"
KATY PERRY: "Just showed 2 my hotel & they sent up the CUTEST koala wine holder. New purse,YES! SCORE! Don't b jelly!"

KATY PERRY: "Hayley & I love australia. And tapas."
KATY PERRY: "Hopefully my kitty purry nails bring me luck tonight."
KATY PERRY: "Made some breakfast friends on the way to day 2 of V FESTIVAL! YUM!"
Katy performs at the V Festival in the UK in a Dolce & Gabbana outfit that reminds us of an early Madonna...
