Perry stole Cyrus' hair

Katy Perry used to carry around locks of hair belonging to Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift.

The singer enjoys letting her fans in on secrets but is aware her latest titbit might not go down well with everyone.

When she attended the Grammy Awards several years ago, the brunette beauty was astounded to come face to face with the two stars. Determined to mark the occasion, she entered a bizarre request.

"One of the first times I went to the Grammys, I got to share a dressing room with Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, and I asked them for a lock of their hair from each one of them, which is totally creepy, but awesome," she explained at an iHeartRadio's listening party for her new album Prism in Los Angeles.

Katy's kooky behaviour didn't end there. Not content with simply having the tresses in her possession, she tended to them to ensure they stayed in good condition.

"I put little bows on them individually and put them in my purse," she giggled. "And that was my little secret and I'm a freak."

Hair is a known source of interest for Katy, who has dyed hers many different colours over the years including black, blue and dark purple. Although she has put her tresses through a lot, she puts a lot of time into keeping them in good condition, and doesn't understand why others don't follow suit.

"If you’re only going to wash your hair once a week there’s one thing to remember… hair smells and your oils are fragrant… I understand that people don’t want to wash their hair as much when they’ve had a professional blow-dry, but use a dry shampoo that smells good!” she told Company magazine recently. “I use an Oribe one because the scent is amazing.”
