Katy Perry takes revenge on teenage crush who rejected her after spotting him at her concert

Sweet revenge: Katy Perry got her own back at her teenage crush when she spotted him at a surprise concert at Dos Pueblos High School in Santa Barbara

Katy Perry got her own back at her teenage crush when she spotted him at a surprise concert at her high school yesterday.

The 25-year-old singer was performing to past and present students at Dos Pueblos High School in Santa Barbara, California when she spotted former classmate Shane Lopes in the crowd.

While Perry is probably having the last laugh being a millionaire pop star, she took the opportunity to chastise him for turning her down.

During a break between songs, Katy said: 'Is that Shane Lopes?

'You were the most popular kid in my class! But you never wanted to date me, it was always Amanda Wayne.

Old schoolmate: Shane Lopes

'Oh yeah, you really chose right honey. What’s up. What’s up now, player. I’m going to dedicate this next one to Shane Lopes everyone.'

She then embarrassed him further by dedicating her song Ur So Gay to Lopes, who was a quarterback on the school's American football team.

After the final bell rang, students dashed to the outdoor stage, which was complete with drum risers, smoke machines and faux lollipop stage sets.

As well as giving something back to Dos Pueblos High School, Russell Brand’s fiancĂ© was also promoting her new material from her new album.

She opened her set in the school’s cheerleading uniform but had one of her latex mini dresses underneath which she stripped down to and sang Hot N’Cold.

Katy then broke into I Kissed A Girl in front of the entire student body of 2,000 students.

In case the students were confused as to why the international pop star showed up to perform, she said: ‘Maybe you don’t know, but I went to high school here.

‘I was on this very stage many a lunchtimes. I was such a showoff. There was a pumpkin pie-eating contest, which I won, and a freestyling contest that I lost.
‘That was one of the saddest days of my life.’

She also gave inspiration the youngsters who might feel that school is a struggle, she said: ‘High school can be tough, but you know what? You’re stronger than that.’

Then it was back to the hits and she continued her set with Waking Up In Vegas, followed by Teenage Dream.

Yr So Gay got the students standing up cheering before she told another story about how her heart had been broken by a former school boy from Dos Pueblos.

The singer has had more luck with love since leaving school though and is set to marry Brand later this year.

Earlier in the week the British comic filmed his last scenes on the set of Arthur in New York, dressed in a full batman suit.
