It's with a heavy heart that I accept Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry's engagement, as Bloom was my first celebrity crush. In a very bisexual way, kindergarten Caroline didn't know if she wanted to kiss Legolas on the cheek or steal his silky, blonde weave. Soon after, Bloom's role as Will Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean sealed the deal for my taste in rebellious, dark-haired men with good hearts. As an older fan, I now have to support Bloom in his next role: Perry's husband. To be fair, Orlando Bloom's quotes about Katy Perry show that he's aced his audition with flying colors. The couple got engaged on Valentine's Day 2019, after an almost two-year-long relationship.
Looking at the timeline of Perrybloom (the ship name I prefer over Kabloom), it seems like the only thing in their way was timing. Bloom and Perry were ultra flirty and caught up in the jet-setting romance of it all from the start. Even after their temporary breakup in 2017 — they had been dating for about a year by then — Perry was adamant that the two were on good terms. And nothing Bloom has said was any different! While it may simply look like an on-again, off-again relationship from the outside, it's clear that the Bloom and Perry were ride-or-dies simply trying to make it work.
