Katy Perry is channeling her inner Lolita in a new Instagram photo.
Her words. The star captioned this photo "Feeling v Lolita rn."
Check it out below and try to pick your jaw up off the floor:
The famed literary Lolita was a 12-year-old girl who had sex with her stepfather, but we're guessing Katy meant the broader, catch-all use of the term.
She's feeling like a young sexual temptress in other words.
More power to her for that, although one gets the impression that the 29-year-old pop singer's motivation here may be a case of social media envy.
Have you seen Kim Kardashian nude in Paper?!
That magazine, which released instantly iconic shots of Kim's butt, breasts and more this week, stated on its cover that it was trying to Break the Internet.
Mission accomplished, Paper.
Katy Perry's cleavage (while demonstrably intense as always) and that seductive gaze (which penetrates our soul, admittedly) is just not quite on par.
Don't get us wrong, it's still one of the Seven Wonders of the Celebrity World, and we've dedicated an entire gallery of it that you should check out below.
Seriously, it's worth it.
Also, to Katy's credit:
- She has broken countless records with her endless string of hit pop songs, so she is hardly irrelevant or reliant on this sort of thing for fame;
- This is the only photo from her Instagram to show any cleavage for months. Months! Maybe she was just feeling a little risque last night.
Maybe we're being too hard on Perry and should just appreciate a good thing when we see it. Instead, let's focus on her beau Diplo mocking Taylor Swift.
What a d!ck move.
