Katy Perry: You don’t always have to use your sexy card

It used to be that a pop star getting naked was something people got excited about. Seriously, remember when Britney Spears did “I’m A Slave 4 U” back in 2001 at the MTV VMAs and everyone completely lost their sh!t? Now that would barely get a half-glance and a passing “yeah, that’s pretty cool I guess.” Point is, pop star nudity isn’t bad, but singers rely on it so often now that it’s gotten boring. Anyway, Katy Perry has taken it upon herself to advise the newest crop of pop starlets to make nudity a treat instead of something you do ALL THE TIME. Via HuffPo

When asked if there was one pop star she was addressing, Perry continued, “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.

Look, I’m not bashing nudity or being sexual — I’m on Recon, I’m cool with it. — but I have to agree with Katy. It’s like having a nice little pint of ice cream after a long day: In moderation, it’s the best thing ever! But when you do it every day, you get sick of it and it stops being something fun. So yes, be nude and sexual and fun, but mix it up with something else, otherwise you’re just banging the same one note over and over again.
