Katy Perry Shades Other Female Pop Stars For Showing Skin
Katy Perry, apparently forgetting her rise to fame involved talk of kissing girls and shooting whipped cream out of her bra, is taking other pop stars to task for nudity. Is she shading her BFF Rihanna or her Billboard competition Miley Cyrus?
Perry told NPR’s ‘Weekend Edition’ that she’s nervous about being called a role model because a role model “will fail you,” she explained. “I couldn’t tell kids when it’s time for them to try things or do things. I mean, that’s not my role,” she said. “But, you know, it’s funny. I do see myself becoming this inspiration out of default right now because cause it’s such a strange world. Like females in pop — everybody’s getting naked. I mean, I’ve been naked before but I don’t feel like I have to always get naked to be noticed. But it’s interesting to see …”
Oh really, K.P.? Pray tell us more!
“I’m not talking about anyone in particular,” she added quickly. “I’m talking about all of them. I mean, it’s like everybody’s so naked. It’s like, ‘Put it away!’” she cried. She continued, “We know you’ve got it. I got it too. I’ve taken it off for — I’ve taken it out here and there,” she admitted. “And I’m not necessarily judging. I’m just saying sometimes it’s nice to play that card but also it’s nice to play other cards. And I know I have that sexy card in my deck, but I don’t always have to use that card.”
Aw, c’mon. If there’s an ace in your hand, you’re going to use it. We’ll take this claim seriously when she starts dressing like collaborator Sia onstage.
