Katy Perry Wants Naked Pop Stars to Keep Their Clothes On
When asked whether she considered herself to be a role model, the singer told NPR, "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 always get naked to be noticed."
Speaking of getting naked, Lady Gaga did just that over the weekend, stripping down to the buff on a stage at a London night club.
The "Roar" crooner, who sometimes rocks skimpy costumes herself, didn't specific exactly which females in pop she was referring to though.
Instead, she said, "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."
Katy went on to say she'd rather be known as an inspiration than a role model, adding, "I think when you set out to be an artist, first and foremost - a musician, a rock 'n' roller - you don't come with this kind of, like, hey, I also want to be a role model that, obviously, will let you down because I'm a human being."
"Because a role model, I think, will fail you. I mean, I couldn't tell kids when it's time for them to try things or do things," she went on. "I mean, that's not my role."
