The world caught a glimpse of Katy Perry’s so-called “dark side” during the 2014 Grammy Awards, where the pop star was joined by rapper Juicy J for a spooky rendition of “Dark Horse.”
Perry delivered a witchy production involving broomsticks doubling as stripper poles, light up crosses, and hellfire.
She previously noted in several interviews that the cult ’90s horror movie The Craft was a major inspiration behind the song, so her choice of staging wasn’t a huge surprise.
That didn’t keep people from talking about it on twitter:
I'm like 99% sure Katy perry just summoned satan during her performance

My mom: It looks like Katy Perry is burning in Hell. "Cast into hell Satan and all his creatures, St. Michael pray for us"
