By now most of us are no strangers to a little AI fakery, but it seems even the stars (or their mothers at least) aren't immune to the trickery of artificial intelligence. Following the recent Met Gala, singer Katy Perry came out to dispel fake images of her attending the event, confessing that even her own mother had fallen victim to the fake pictures.

As we've seen in recent years, AI art generators are getting better than ever. While it's a little dystopian to see how convincing Katy's fake Met outfits were, I feel a little guilty admitting that I prefer the AI-generated creations – at least AI stuck to the theme.
