Pop singer Katy Perry is hitting out at other female stars who think that nudity is the only thing that they have to offer up to their fans. In a new interview with NPR, she said that she is nervous about being referred to as a role model because they “will fail you.”
She said, “I couldn’t tell kids when it’s time for them to try things or do things. I mean, that’s not my role. 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 …”
She went on to say, “I’m not talking about anyone in particular. I’m talking about all of them. I mean, it’s like everybody’s so naked. It’s like, ‘Put it away!’ We know 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. And I know I have that sexy card in my deck, but I don’t always have to use that card.”
Mark this on your calendars, folks. Katy Perry said something that made perfect sense.
