Katy Perry is chained to the rhythm, meanwhile her pup, Nugget, is breaking into the biz.
The singer’s teacup poodle, previously seen getting cuddly with Perry’s ex Orlando Bloom on Instagram, has a starring role in her mom’s new ad for Citi’s Double Cash card.
In the spot, Nugget gets her own personalized chair and Perry’s full attention, which is just the way she wants it.
“I’ve traveled from stage to stage with Katy but it’s time to take my solo career to the next level and ride my own wagging tail. I’m as happy as a hound dog chasing a gut truck to be launching this new campaign with Citi,” Nugget said in a statement. “It finally puts me on the pedestal on which I belong.”
Nugget isn’t the first celebrity pet to be bit by the fame bug. Check out these furry friends of the famous who have become stars in their own right.
