Katy Perry makes one thing abundantly clear on her Instagram: She's a hilarious, relatable queen. In lieu of polished, publicist-approved posts, Perry opts for more candid moments—like Snapchat mashups, videos of puppies wearing tiny suits, and A-plus selfies. She's basically all of us trolling Tumblr at 2 A.M. for weird GIFs. (The only difference is she has 60 million followers favoriting her stuff, and we have...well, not that.)

We can all relate to this on some level. Of course, most of us don't have as extensive Google search results as Perry, but we're all guilty of looking at good photos of ourselves when we're feeling upset—which is exactly what Perry is copping to. And that's pretty damn refreshing, given that many celebrities claim they don't Google themselves at all. (Lies!)
Building self-esteem is hard—and yes, even for celebrities. Thanks for keeping it real, Katy Perry. Do what you 'gotta do to feel like a
