“When you could go anywhere for your bday dinner,” Katy Perry writes on Instagram alongside a picture of herself and a dozen friends standing under an Olive Garden sign, “but you’re so OG that you go to OG with all your OG’s.”
The “Roar” singer apparently considers herself and her friends Original Gangstas, and although Olive Garden may not be the first place some think of when they hear that phrase, the OG/OG thing is clever enough to deserve its own lyric on Katy’s next album. Perry is celebrating birthday number 31, and according to the restaurant website “Olive Garden guests can receive a complimentary appetizer or dessert coupon as special birthday gift.” So, let’s hope she had enough forethought to sign up for the eClub.
