Taylor Swift is probably my best friend. I drink too much coffee, but so do you... Weird, Wild & Free.

This is a side of Katy Perry that we don’t see very often.

Katy Perry dropped by The Ellen Show yesterday to a surprise a Pulse Orlando nightclub shooting victim Tony Marrero.

The episode will be aired today, but a clip was posted online. It shows Tony opening up to Ellen and telling her how much Katy‘s song 'Rise' helped him while he was in hospital and it pushed him to recover.

Tony was shot multiple times in the back and his recovery is considered a miracle by doctors

Ellen then asks Tony if he would like to meet Katy and let's just say it will leave you in tears.


Katy promised Tony that she would pay for his first year in film school and Ellen also gave him, a check for $25,000 to the official GoFundMe page for Pulse Victims, courtesy of Shutterfly.

You can tell how much it meant to Katy to meet him and we hope she realises how inspiring she is to so many people.
