Katy Perry Has A Pretty Good Reason Why She Hasn't Gotten Married To Orlando Bloom Yet

    “Every couple of months it’s like, ‘New variant! New variant! New variant!’”

    Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have been a thing for a minute now.

    They've been engaged since 2019, and they welcomed a baby into the world the following year. So why aren't they married yet?

    Good question! And Perry has the answer — or, at least, she explained why to Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O.

    💍 It feels like they've been engaged forever but why hasn't @katyperry and #OrlandoBloom gotten married yet?! #ᑭᒪᗩY #KATYPERRYPLAY #KatyPerry #KJshow

    Basically, the explanation's pretty simple. They were going to get married in Japan in 2020, but that didn't work out due to, y'know, the COVID-19 pandemic.

    So they're still holding out, for now. “It’s a destination location,” she explained. “We’re still trying for it to work out.”

    “Every couple of months it’s like, ‘New variant! New variant! New variant!’” Ain't it the truth.

    While it's more than understandable that Katy and Orlando are waiting, there's also been several celebs that recently went ahead and got married in intimate ceremonies — like Olympic skater Adam Rippon and Jussi-Pekka Kajaala...

    ...and Jenny Slate and Ben Shattuck. (Both couples also got married on New Year's Eve in 2021. What a coincidence!)

    Whatever Katy and Orlando decide to do, I'm sure they'll make it special in their own way.
