Katy Perry graces the cover of the Vogue May issue, but the pop singer looks almost unrecognizable in the magazine where she blames President Donald Trump for bringing “up a lot of trauma for me.”

On Thursday, the 32-year-old singer shared the magazine’s cover and several other photos on Instagram sporting very short, blonde hair and odd clothing attire. (RELATED: Katy Perry Promises To ‘Vote Naked’ To Help Get Hillary Elected)

In the cover shot, Perry posed in a red leather dress with pale make-up looking very different from the person that appeared in the racy “California Gurls” video.

“‘California Gurls’ and fluffy stuff would be completely inauthentic to who I am now and what I’ve learned,” Perry told Vogue.

“I was really disheartened for a while; it just brought up a lot of trauma for me,” Perry said about her feelings after Trump won the election. “Misogyny and sexism were in my childhood: I have an issue with suppressive males and not being seen as equal. I felt like a little kid again being faced with a scary, controlling guy.”

“I wouldn’t really stand for it in my work life, because I have had so much of that in my personal life,” she added. “But it’s an awakening that was necessary because I think we were in a false utopia . . . we can’t ever get that stagnant again. I am so grateful that young people know the names of senators. I think teenage girls are going to save the world!”
