But not on Friday. The Roar singer took a selfie with social media star Jiff - a very furry brown and white Pomeranian - and ended up playing second fiddle as it was just too challenging to compete with the fuzzball.
The 29-year old girlfriend of John Mayer captioned the photo, 'Baaaaaast fraaaandsss fur-avaa @jiffpom.'
The Dark Horse singer looked thrilled as she leaned in towards her furry friend and snapped the photo though Jiff - in a snazzy white collar - looked indifferent.
The Grammy performer was all gussied up for the shoot complete with a pink satin top, matching pink makeup and retro-style bangs. It seemed that they were on her bed.
Jiff, meanwhile, has been enjoying his own rise to celebrity stardom.
The pup is a film and television actor and has become an online sensation thanks to his adorable looks and personality.
Jiff starred in the film Adventures of Bailey: A Night In Cowtown and appeared in several television commercials including ones for Target and Banana Republic.
He has been featured on various news outlets and websites like EllenTV.com.
His own Youtube page, where he shows off his talents and tricks, has more than 300,000 views.
Jiff even has his own Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profiles showcasing him at different events, locations and wearing cute outfits.
The pup has amassed thousands of his own followers and in addition to Katy, has also posed with dozens of other high-profile celebrities such as actor Lou Ferrigno and Real Housewife Of Beverly Hills reality star Lisa Vanderpump.
Katy made a splash on Thursday with a new promo for her upcoming music video for Dark Horse.
Inspired by the movie Cleopatra, she plays the part of 'Katy-Patra' blinged out to the max in diamond-studded grillz during the 32-second spot.
Katy must have been excited about the artsy introduction for she took to Twitter on Thursday to post a link to the promo video and write: 'MEET THE QUEEN OF MEMPHIS (Egypt, that is).'
The promo begins with a series of animated hieroglyphics in which a story is inscribed.
