Katy Perry's Dog Gave Her Number To 86 Million People

The Debrief: The pop star has had to change her number because of one teeny tiny mistake…

Ever kind of accidentally given your number out to someone you really didn’t want texting you? Katy Perry feels your pain, as she revealed her number to a whopping 86 million people yesterday.

It wasn’t an April Fool’s trick, either – see, she’s got an adorable little dog called Butters and she wanted to share a photo of his glorious face with the world. So she did what every pet-loving celebrity (think Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus) did and uploaded a video of her scruffy ginger dog to Instagram. He’s actually a caramel toy poodle (yes, that is a type of dog and no, we can’t bear how cute that is) but he also looks like a teddy bear.

She put this caption on it, too, referencing Rihanna’s new song Bitch Better Have My Money: ‘BITCH BETTER HAVE MY MONEY IF BITCH WANTS SAUSAGES!’

The only setback in this idyllic situation – imagine how many likes she was going to get for that video?! – is Katy had momentarily forgotten that, on Butters’ collar, there’s a little tag with her phone number on, in case he gets lost.

And it’s not any assistant’s number or anything – so she had to quickly delete the photo, reports Us. Being Katy Perry, with 86 million Twitter followers (she’d put the photo there, too) and 16.4 million Instagram followers, a LOT of people had noticed the image very quickly and decided to try their luck on the number. So deleting the video wasn’t enough, she had to properly de-activate her phone number! All that, over one single photo…of a dog!

Fingers crossed this doesn’t put Katy off of uploading more images of Butters – we need much more of him in our life.
