Wonder Twins Activate! In The Form Of... Katy Perry And Zooey Deschanel

Wonder Twins Activate

Close your eyes and mentally picture a bendy, paper doll version of singer/actress Zooey Deschanel . (Or, better, yet, just check out the image above).

Got it? Rightyho! Now grab your Zooey doll, douse her with liquid eyeliner, remove her bizarro tambourine and replace her peachy-colored lip gloss with a rosy red lipstick. Next, liberally bedazzle her bust region, brush her bangs out of her face (and swap that weird, rose-shaped scrunchie for a giant, glittery butterfly barrette) then tilt her head forward until she's staring directly at you, wondering WTF is going on. Then pat yourself on the back: you're just officially recreated Katy Perry 's vamped-out disco queen look from the 2008 VMAs .

Granted, Katy and Zooey have always had that dark-haired, blue-eyed, fair-skinned lady of leisure thing going on, but it wasn't 'til Katy winked at us in her costume-y, Xanadu -inspired two-piece last Sunday that we came to an important realization: Katy and Zooey MAY ACTUALLY BE THE SAME PERSON.

+ Think about it: When was the last time you actually saw them in the same room together, at the exact same time ? (Answer: Never). Check out this pic of Katy from the VMAs , compare them with this snapshot of Zooey from FNMTV -- Katy and Zooey's band She & Him were on the same episode of FNMTV , which was really confusing -- and watch their videos below. Then admit that they're either (a) identical twins, or else (b) aliens from some faraway planet where no one uses self-tanner -- and EVERYONE can sing.
