Katy Perry revels with girl gang at her bachelorette party in Vegas

Perry’s bachelorette party was thrown by fellow pop princess Rihanna, who is a close friend of hers.

Katy Perry had the final night of single-girl debauchery, before tying the knot to beau Russell Brand, and taking over the responsibilities of her married life.

Despite some tensions related to the arrest of her soon-to-be-husband, Perry went ahead with her scheduled celebrations and woke-up in Vegas with her girlfriends.

Brand was taken into custody after an altercation with a paparazzo at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday. While he tried to sort out the legal mess, Perry and her gal-pals hit the floor in Sin City Saturday night.

Rihanna's treat
Perry’s bachelorette party was thrown by fellow pop princess Rihanna, who is a close friend of hers.

"I have to come up with something cool, because she's getting married in India," Rihanna had said in April. "So I'm like, 'OK, now what do I do to match that?' "

And well, she did organize big bachelorette celebrations to match the grand wedding.

An entourage of 25 girls, including Rihanna, arrived at Las Vegas's Hard Rock Hotel Beach Club pool and kicked off the festivities.

The girl group lounged in the VIP cabana in 95-degree temperatures, sipping champagne, beer and vodka and munching on finger foods. The girls also had a bunch of huge pink playthings, said Vegas celebrity columnist Robin Leach.

They also entered the Sapphire strip club, where Perry checked out the female dancers who danced to her songs.

Partying poolside
Perry sported a white bikini, with a veil attached to her bottom, and sunglasses, as she relaxed the poolside. The ‘California Gurls’ singer had a good time with her friends, laughing and briefly dancing to the music, as she savored the relaxing environment.

Probably she was planning on drinking a lot as shortly after arriving at the pool, Perry tweeted, “Signing up for a liver transplant now.”

Hitting the club..
After light day-time celebrations at the pool, the group got into a stretched Hummer limo and made a grand appearance at the MGM Grand for a performance of Cirque du Soleil's ‘KÀ.’

Perry and Rihanna were later seen hanging out with the cast back stage.

Perry had changed from her swim suit into a sparkling black cocktail dress and miniature top hat with a veil.

After having dinner at Ago, the girls carried their revelries to the XS nightclub and continued the party into the wee hours.

They also entered the Sapphire strip club, where Perry checked out the female dancers who danced to her songs.

Finally they wrapped up the celebrations in the 25-year-old singer's suite, where an erotic cake was waiting for her.
