Katy Perry has revealed he she often approaches fans in disguise and hands them concert tickets while she is on tour.

The “Roar” hitmaker kicks off her 107-date Prism world tour in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Wednesday, and she’s letting fans know that just because a show is sold out it doesn’t mean there aren’t any tickets left.

Perry is determined to use her time on the road as an opportunity to see parts of the world she would never otherwise visit, ensuring she makes trips to famous landmarks and areas of beauty.

And she tells Britain’s Seven Days magazine, “Sometimes, when we go bike riding the day before or the morning of a show, we take some tickets and stop along the way in coffee shops and places and give them away secretly – but I wear a hat and sunglasses so you don’t really know that it’s me.”

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
