Does Katy Perry Play Chess?

Pop star Katy Perry is so famous that even I have heard of her. This is no mean achievement since I pretty much stopped listening to chart music circa 1992 Wink.

Since Ms. Perry is extremely famous I have to assume that the first picture at this link is noteworthy and worth sharing, especially as it follows on nicely from my last blog about chess-playing Prada models! Cool

More evidence of the 'cool' image of modern chess. Hopefully someone, maybe AGON, can eventually capitalise on the positive vibes around the royal game.

    Actually music , chess and math are coorelated, brain wise at least.   skill in each is strongly based on pattern recognition. (note the are similar brain wise but skill in 1 does not mean skill in another) They are also the only 3 areas where there are prodigies. (kids of a young age able able to compete at the same level as adults)

    So, she is obviously not playing chess, BUT...

    isn't it encouraging that she wants to LOOK like she is?
