Ready to learn a lot more about Katy Perry in less time than it will take to finish one of her songs?
Even if you don’t enjoy Katy Perry as a musician, we’re sure you’ll love our list. After all, there is little denying that she is well deserving of being considered to be one of the best looking celebrities. Whether she strips down for a day on the beach, various photo shoots or of course, her various music videos; you have come to the right place if you want 10 of the hottest moments of Katy Perry’s career thus far. In fact, there’s even a moment where she shows off plenty of her body in a photo tribute to Kim Kardashian.
But just in case you’re not the biggest Perry fan, we also make sure to play fair and include 10 of the star’s most embarrassing moments, some of which may even leave you questioning how hot she truly is (but then we have your back with another hot one, so no worries guys!). Though we’re sorry if we ruin your fantasy a little bit because we also make sure to include the harsh words that Russell Brand had about her love making ability.
These are the 10 photos that Perry definitely wouldn’t want you to see, and 10 that we’re sure she is incredibly proud of.
20. Doesn’t – Her Makeup Free Photos
When you’re a female celebrity and you’re going out for a night on the town or a photo shoot, you are more than likely going to spend some time getting your makeup and hair styled.
Katy Perry, however, was clearly not expecting the photo on the right at the very least to make its way on the internet. It was posted by Russell Brand one morning to her Twitter account before he quickly deleted it but not before it got saved on the internet forever. You can imagine that wasn’t the most pleasant conversation when Perry realized what he had done. Though as you’ll learn, this is far from the worst thing he’s done or said about Perry.
19. Does – Her Music Video Outfits
Katy Perry may look gorgeous in various photoshoots, and she definitely knows how to look good when she’s walking around on the street, but perhaps her sexiest and most captivating outfits come from what she chooses (or perhaps more aptly, chooses not) to wear. Granted when it seems like every single, single that comes from Perry tends to gain millions of views, who are we to argue with her success?
You also wouldn’t be the only one if after seeing her rock the whipped cream bra in the song “California Gurls” you attempted to try it out at home!
18. Doesn’t – Her Beach Day With Bloom
Now when it comes to the above photo, the first thing that you may think is “whoa Katy Perry is looking super hot on the beach, why wouldn’t she want us to see that?” but unfortunately for Perry, accompanying her on this beach trip is her now ex-fling, Orlando Bloom.
The day became even more infamous when Orlando Bloom elected to walk around without his shorts on and while it’s very possible Perry joined him in her birthday suit, she was able to keep uncensored photos of herself from the day from making their way online.
Bloom was not quite so lucky and when asked about the nude photos, admitted,
“I wouldn’t have put myself in that position if I’d thought it would happen,” he told Elle UK, “I’ve been photographed a million times in a million different ways. I have a good radar. We’d been completely alone for five days – nothing around us. There was no way anyone could get anything. I had a moment of feeling What can I tell you. Note to self: You’re never free. Ha!”
17. Does – Her Kim K. Look
One of the big negatives of being a celebrity may be the fact that you’re always going to find yourselves getting compared to others. Katy Perry clearly chose to steer into that full-speed however when she took to her Instagram page to share her new blonde hair and braid style which is classic Kim Kardashian; especially when you consider Katy was also comfortable showing off her body in that pink latex outfit.
Leaving little doubt, Katy even captured the post “Katy Kardashian”, but something tells us it might be a while before she elects to go on Instagram and make a joke about how she has nothing to wear.
You wouldn’t be the only one if you’re a huge fan of the above photo though, as not only did it garner over 1 million likes on social media but it also earned the approval of the entire Kardashian clan.
16. Doesn’t – This Coachella Photo
Katy Perry has some of the most beautiful eyes out of any celebrity, but you definitely can’t tell from the above photo that we have! Because like many famous celebrities, Perry also clearly loves to party it up and on the above night, clearly didn’t have enough awareness to realize the paparazzi would be coming for her.
The photo was taken of Perry back in 2012 when she was enjoying her weekend partying at the Coachella music festival; which also means it wouldn’t be the craziest notion that she may have partaken in some illegal substances as well.
15. Does – Her First Photoshoot For Vogue
There are several photo shoots that Katy Perry has taken part in that will probably leave your jaw on the floor, but we don’t think you’re going to be hating on us for bringing you a photo from the first time she stepped in front of the cameras for vogue magazine.
While you may be used to seeing Perry show off a bit more skin than the long red dress allows for (and if you aren’t used to it, you’re about to get used to it!), there’s no denying she looks beautiful as she lounges out on the grass.
14. Doesn’t – The Ellen Stare
When the celebrities were invited to the Grammys back in 2013 they were literally instructed by CBS that they should use their best discretion and when showing up, “be sure that buttocks and female breasts are covered.”
Perry clearly skipped that memo, much to the amazement of Ellen DeGeneres who got caught red-handed taken a less than subtle look at Perry’s cleavage.
While Perry laughed it off, it’s still one of the more awkward experiences for a woman to go through. Ellen humorously played off the situation on twitter saying, “Here I am taking a tasteful glance at Katy Perry’s dress.”
13. Does – Her Success As An Actress
Katy Perry is a talented singer and absolutely beautiful, but she’s also known for her hilarious comedic timing that she has shown on opportunities like hosting Saturday Night Live in which she made Elmo seem a lot dirtier than you probably envisioned as a kid.
Perry has also shown off her versatility in sitcoms, rocking out on the series How I Met Your Mother and Raising Hope before also making an appearance in the movie Zoolander 2.
While she doesn’t seem to have many acting projects on the horizon, we’re sure she’d still be a welcome sight whenever she appears on your screen (especially if she’s wearing an outfit like the one we have featured for you above!)
12. Doesn’t – Her Bieber Comparison
Katy Perry has literally been considered the most beautiful woman in the entire world by different publications and if that’s an opinion you disagree with then perhaps this list is helping prove that point.
But Perry didn’t do herself any favors when she elected to chop off her hair and upload some photos to social media back in early April. Even if you think Perry looks sexy, the fact that the internet quickly ran with the comparison to Justin Bieber (which you may agree with given our comparison pick) is enough to give you pause.
11. Does – Stripping Down For Rolling Stone
Katy Perry is well aware that one of her most talked about features on her body is her chest. So when she stripped down for Rolling Stone she not only showed that she was comfortable showing off some skin but also didn’t hesitate to open up about her past struggles with her body
“I didn’t understand my body. Someone in sixth grade called me ‘Over-the-shoulder boulder holder.’ I didn’t know I could use them. So, what I did was, I started taping them down. How long did I tape them down for? Probably until I was about 19. And, no, I don’t have any psychological pain because of it.”
10. Doesn’t – Wardrobe Malfunction Back In 2008
There are plenty of celebrities out there who work hard to make sure they never undergo a wardrobe malfunction, but as you can tell from the above photo, Perry definitely hasn’t always been successful in her endeavors.
The photo was taken during a concert back in 2008 where Perry clearly got a little too into the music. When interviewed about her chest and the potential of slipping out, Perry gave more insight into her attitude,
“I’m highlighting what god gave me. Using what your mama made! I’m just going to be myself….I don’t care if I do fall over or if a boob does fall out!”
9. Does – Her Super Bowl Performance
Katy Perry has plenty of people to thank for how well her performance at the Super Bowl went well, but when talking to Ryan Seacrest she made sure to give a shoutout to the big man upstairs,
“It’s funny, I was praying and I got a word from God and He said, ‘You got this and I got you’ And then I was on top of the lion and a guy, a random guy, just looked at me with a headset that I’ve never communicated with before and he just looked me straight in the eyes and said, ‘You got this.'”
8. Doesn’t – Gets Groped On Stage In Rio
One of the best parts about getting to go and see some of your favorite performers in concert is the amount of fan interaction that may go on. Katy Perry is notorious for engaging with her fans, but back in 2015, one fan took it way too far.
Performing in Brazil, Perry invited a fan onto the stage who was clearly under the influence of perhaps several substances and proceeded to grope Perry repeatedly over the next few awkward minutes, including kissing Perry’s neck after she went in for a hug.
Now if we’re going to be completely fair to Katy Perry, this situation is definitely something that was out of her control and she handled it pretty well (including remarking to the crowd that she thinks the fan is ‘rolling’, a term meaning on molly), but you can imagine it was not one of her proudest moments.
7. Does – Her Recent Pie Publicity
You wouldn’t be the only person out there would happily line up to get a taste of Katy Perry’s pie. And for her fans in New York, that’s exactly what happened in April when Katy Perry elected to go ahead with a social media campaign to try and raise awareness for her new single “Bon Appetite”.
Hanging out in the food truck we have pictured above, Katy was giving out Cherry pie and also took to her Instagram to share her own special recipe for what she is calling “The World’s Best Cherry Pie”
6. Doesn’t – Her Pizza Onesie
Katy Perry has plenty of outfits where she’s looking absolutely stunning, many of which you’ve seen on this list. Yet you wouldn’t be alone if you think she looks a little cheesy in the above photo!
Perry was spotted walking around in the pepperoni onesie back in 2014 following a concert in Philadelphia. Perry picked an extra fun night to wear it, as she announced to her concert that she was about to go and run up the famous steps in Philadelphia à la Rocky; but when hundreds showed up to watch and the event got out of hand, Perry ditched her plans.
Instead, you can imagine she may have taken some inspiration from her outfit choice, gone home and rocked out with some deep dish pizza. Amazingly Perry isn’t the only celebrity to embrace her meaty side, as Cara Delevingne has also been spotted in an identical onesie.
5. Does – Warming You Up As Santa
Katy Perry is clearly a huge fan of Christmas, and we aren’t shocked if you’re a huge fan of seeing her dressed up as a sexy Santa which she did for the above performance.
Unfortunately for Perry, she has interviews out there of her talking about new Christmas traditions that she was excited to start with Russell Brand (including a pink Christmas tree), but considering not only are they any longer together; but separated over the Holidays, you can imagine things didn’t work out as she had hoped.
Perry donned a Mrs. Claus outfit this past year as well alongside an Orlando Bloom Santa Clause and visited sick children at hospitals. While the memory of Bloom may sting, we’re sure Perry remembers the children’s happy faces.
4. Doesn’t – Any Reminder That Hillary Lost To Trump
Oops! Katy Perry is one of many celebrities who were vocal in their support of Hillary Clinton prior to the election in November, so while she may be proud of her support you can imagine this is still a hard photo to look at. Because as you know Trump won and Perry was none too happy with that result.
One positive for Perry? She admitted in an interview that her depression from the election inspired her to write music for her upcoming album,
“After the election and I was kind of depressed and, you know, I definitely didn’t want to write a club banger. I was like, ‘How are we writing a club banger when the world is on fire?'”
3. Does – Her Smurfs Outfit
Katy Perry may be beautiful to look at, but when it comes to her latest movie The Smurfs in 3D you’ll have to settle for just hearing her voice. That doesn’t mean we can’t show you her beautiful outfit that she wore to one of the premiere events!
Perry has opened up in the past about her preference to working as a voice actor as opposed to live-action,
“I love doing the animation and the voice-overs. It would really take something I could not live without to be in [for me to pursue acting]. It takes so much more discipline than being a musician,” so while she may appear here and there you probably can’t expect her to pull a Gaga and lead a television series like American Horror Story!
2. Doesn’t – Her Relationship With Brand + His Insult
Russell Brand has taken many women to the bedroom, but none may be more captivating than Katy Perry. And not only did he take her to bed, the two even got married! But given that Perry is probably not running to the closet and ripping out her photo album of her and Brand, you can imagine she’s none too pleased with being reminded of their relationship.
Especially when following the breakup, Brand came out and said, “When you’re a monk, you’re not allowed to have sex with anyone. When you’re married, it’s one person. That’s one more than a monk. It’s not that different. I’d be having sex thinking, ‘think of anyone, anyone else.’”
Ouch! Of all things that Katy Perry would get insulted about, her bedroom performance isn’t something that you may expect, but we suppose Brand does have thousands of women to compare her to (allegedly).
1. Does – She Loves The Troops
There is nothing wrong with showing off some patriotic spirit and while Katy may not be the biggest Donald Trump fan (more on that below), we’re sure you love checking her out in her camo-centric outfit that she’s wearing above. Though she could be wearing the best camouflage gear in the world and we’re sure she’d still find a way to stand out!
Perry wore the outfit when she performed at the VH1 Divas Salute The Troops back in 2010. There were several talented musicians who took to the stage to show their support including Nicki Minaj, Paramore, and Heart; but it was Perry who stole the show including closing out the night with a firework display aptly set to her hit song (at the time anyway) “Firework”.
Regardless of who is in the white house, we’re sure Perry will continue showing her support for the troops.
