The singer relies on 'great songs' over nudity

Katy Perry doesn’t think her body’s hot enough for getting naked like other pop stars.

The Roar singer has tastefully stripped off in the past but doesn’t plan to go fully nude in the vein of her raunchy pal Rihanna.

Actually, I did take all my clothes off, for Teenage Dream. I was on a cotton candy cloud, showing my… back,’ says Katy, 29.

I don’t have the body for it. If I had, like, Rihanna’s body, I’d take my clothes off. But I don’t.

I just hide my body in a way where you think I have it.’

Katy thinks the quality of her music means she doesn’t have to bare all just yet, though she wouldn’t rule it out in the future.

Maybe when I’m 35 I will [take all my clothes off],’ the songstress tells Sunday Times Culture.

I don’t need to do it now, because I’ve got great songs. If I get super-desperate, maybe I will then.’
