Katy Perry Gets Support from Orlando Bloom & Robert Pattinson at amfAR Gala 2018!

Katy Perry strikes a pose as she hits the carpet at the 2018 amfAR Gala Los Angeles held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on (October 18) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 33-year-old singer was being honored at the gala for her commitment to the fight against AIDS, as well as countless other humanitarian causes – and got support at the event from her boyfriend Orlando Bloom, and longtime friends Robert Pattinson and designer Jeremy Scott.

“Today I understand that a courageous life is the only one worth living. You may or may not have heard that I come from a Bible-thumping background that wasn’t particularly open or accepting of curiosity,” Katy expressed during her speech (via USA Today). “I wasn’t allowed to eat Lucky Charms — Luck was too closely associated with Lucifer, obviously — or watch the Smurfs because they were magical blue demons. And then I become (the voice of) Smurfette later on in life… teenage rebellion.”

“I may not have known it then but daring to ask questions and redefine right and wrong when everybody around me spoke in absolutes was my first attempt at a courageous life,” Katy continued. “To my LGBTQ-plus family who is disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS, I’ve always felt such a deep connection to, and gratitude for your bravery to live your authentic truth. It’s a gift to all of us and you deserve to be safe, seen and celebrated. I want to thank you for always offering me a home in your hearts and a bench in your ears. You have one in mine, too, and we are in this together.”

FYI: Katy is wearing an Alexis Mabille dress with Bulgari jewelry. Robert is wearing a Dior Homme suit.
