STORY: Pop star Katy Perry was greeted by hundreds of ecstatic fans as the pink carpet was rolled out in London on Tuesday (July 3) for the singer's new concert film "Katy Perry: Part of Me".

Hundreds of fans, many of them dressed with coloured wigs and heart shaped spectacles, lined the barriers of the pink carpet, which had been decorated with a giant milkshake and lollipop sculptures for Perry's arrival.

Despite the weather staying largely dry, Perry decided to complement her Marchesa outfit with a huge Union Jack umbrella. The singer also wore Union Jack eyelashes as part of her pink carpet outfit.

Perry's movie is named after her song "Part of Me", which was released in February and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100.

Distributor Paramount Pictures and Perry, whose last album "Teenage Dream" produced such hits as "Firework", "California Gurls" and "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)", teamed up to promote the first big screen look at Perry's life and 124 performances on her tour.

Paramount also co-produced and distributed pop singer Justin Bieber's concert film, "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never", which grossed nearly $100 million worldwide on a budget of $13 million.

A trailer for Perry's movie details her religious upbringing, her struggles and pressures on becoming a pop star, her marriage breakup with actor Russell Brand, as well as tour footage, including her telling the audience, "Thank you so much for believing in my weirdness".

The film opens in U.S. theatres on July 5.
