Even mega-famous pop stars have to wait in line for fast food.

During her trip to Tokyo, a black-mask-wearing Katy Perry made a pit stop at the city’s first-ever Taco Bell location, which opened in the Japanese capital last week.

“You can take the girl out of America but you can’t take the Taco Bell out of the girl, okuurrrr,” Perry posted to Instagram, noting that there was an hour-long wait for the grub—clearly a worthy way to spend an evening.

The new Taco Bell location has been drawing serious crowds since its opening, which attracted hundreds of people to line up before the doors opened at 10 a.m. Some even camped out overnight.

Clearly these consumers know that it’s never too early for tacos.

The Tokyo location may have a familiar logo, but the menu is tailored for the Japanese audience—featuring Asian-inspired dishes like taco rice and a shrimp-and-avocado burrito. There are also some American classics (like the Crunchwrap Supreme) to round out the menu.

We’re happy to see that Perry also seems to live by our life motto: No matter where you are in the world, there’s always room for tacos.

You’re in Tokyo, Katy. Live a little. There are plenty of Taco Bells at home. Try something new. It won’t kill you.

How sweet that the people there are so excited over their first Taco Bells restaurant though. 🙂

This doesn’t seem like a good use of her time. Aren’t there any museums or cultural exhibits she could visit in Tokyo?

Katy – use a paper bag and cover up your entire face! At least her mouth is covered for a change (loud-mouthed idiot)

I’d buy her whatever she wanted if she let me cum all over her pretty m asked face
