Katy Perry Pens Touching Tribute to Late Friend Jake Bailey

Katy Perry Pens Touching Tribute to Late Friend Jake Bailey

Katy Perry has written an emotional note to pay tribute to her late friend, celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey.

The beloved makeup maven was found dead at age 37 on Friday morning (October 23) and he was best known for his work with Katy.

Jake- My sweet, sensitive soul,” she started off the note. “What a wonderful journey and friendship we had together. What beautiful art we created together. We conquered the worlds biggest stages, together. I know you felt life so intensely and it created this incredible artistic passion in you that came out in everything you touched, from the amazing images you took to the ways you painted your muses, highlighting the beauty in everyone.”

“You had the most otherworldly eye to detail… we would laugh about how you could take a nap in that eyelid crease you created (cause it was so deep) or Jake‘s 45 minute eyes… Which was such a precise lash that even Bambi couldn’t rival. You essentially created my ‘look’ ever since we met on the music video for Hot and Cold,” Katy continued.

“We always confided in each other, rallied each other at our lows and pushed each other to be our best. We never got comfortable and I know that was why we did the best work together. My favorite moments of recent times is when we would meditate together during breaks on different jobs…tune all the noise out, forget about Hollywood and the chaos that surrounds it, and look for a slice of peace, 20 minutes at a time.

I know sometimes it was hard to find consistent happiness here on this earth, I understand you in that way. I want you to know now finally and forevermore that I appreciate you and all the lessons we traded each other in this life. I love you. No more work, no more searching, you are finally at peace.

Every time I sit in that chair we shared, just know, no one holds a brush to you, friend.

Be free now.

My prayers are with the Bailey family.”
