Katy Perry to Naked Pop Stars: Like, Put it Away Already!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Katy Perry has used sex appeal to her advantage, but it's one of many tools in her arsenal, while other stars seem to be getting naked almost by default.

So she tells NPR, admitting that these days, "I do see myself becoming this, whatever, inspiration out of default right now, '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 get naked to be noticed. It's interesting to see."

That it is. Asked if she was calling out any singer in particular - Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Rihanna come to mind - she insists she's not.

"I'm talking about all of them. I mean, it's like everybody's so naked," she said.

"It's, like, put it away. We all know that you've got it. I got it too. I've taken it off for ... I've taken it out here and there. 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. I know I have that sexy card in my deck but I don't always have to use that card."

Exercising restraint? Talk about a novel concept.

Perry has indeed appeared comparatively more conservative as of late as her peers such as Miley, Gaga, Rihanna and Britney go increasingly wild.

Her inspirational, massive hit song "Roar" and accompanying music video definitely seem all the more tame given the pop star competition these days.

Some examples of what she's talking about ...

Do you agree with Katy's point regarding her peers and their propensity for getting naked? And is she actually practicing what she's preaching these days?

Katy has no room to talk about weird outfits and weird hair although she has been looking way better dressed since she hooked up with John. Anymore of those Wonder Women outfits and I was going to have to puke. Also her new song Roar is so beneath her talent, and sounds like a Jr. High song. We would like to see her do something that doesnt sound like it was made by a High School girl. Looks like she is just going for the money and will make up any corny gimmicky song to get it, with no real talent showing.

That's easy to say if you have talent. It's not nice to make Miley feel guilty for not having anything to sell except her body.

She only wishes she were that naked. There's always a prude in the bunch after having tasted a little bit of public nudity herself, I would imagine her to be more carefree, she's still young, why not?

Maybe she's upset that she can't be as makes as she would like to be, given that she comes from a ubber religious background.
