Over the weekend, a snapshot of Katy Perry looking striking in a black and white photo for Inteview magazine was circulating the social networking sites but no one really knew what was going on. Today, it was officially revealed that Katy would be the mag’s March 2012 cover girl. Along with a hi-res version of the cover shot by Mikael Jansson, the mag released the following statement:

“If you haven’t already heard, Katy Perry is our March covergirl. We’re pretty excited (!), especially as she’s interviewed by one of our favorite comedians, Kristen Wiig. Above is a sneak peek of Katy’s cover, shot by Mikael Jansson and styled by Karl Templer. More to come later in the week…”

An interview with Kristin Wiig? Are you kidding? That sounds amazing! I cannot wait to read that and believe you me, I’ll be posting it on here for all of you to enjoy as well. Check out Katy’s stunning full cover for Interview magazine below.
