Katy Perry has made it very clear she has no problem being seen as a sex icon, after telling Elle magazine this month, “I’m a sexy girl, so what? I never claimed I was a nun!”
Perry talked at length about her figure, and life in general and told the magazine, “I was shaped like a square at one time. I was! I’m generally around 130 pounds, which is totally fine for me. But when I was a kid, I was the same height and weighed more like 145.”
“And I had enormous boobs that I didn’t know what to do with, so I wore minimizers, which were not cute. Those thick-ass straps! I got made fun of for the over-the-shoulder boulder holder…and all I wanted was to look like Kate Moss. Little did I know…that these things would come in handy someday.”
Perry also talks about new husband, Russell Brand, saying, “Everything clicked really fast. We kind of instantly got past all the surfacey stuff. And ever since then, there hasn’t been a dull moment.”
The singer also talked about how pleased she was people were seeing her as more than a flash in the pan.
“I have a lot more to bring to the table. I’m trying to give people music that they can hopefully adopt as a soundtrack to their lives—songs that speak to a whole range of emotions.”
