Katy Perry Wants To Be A 'Teenage Wet Dream'

Singer says she wants Teenage Dream LP to 'exude euphoric feeling.'

We've learned an awful lot about Katy Perry over the past week or so: She doesn't take kindly to Lady Gaga mucking around with Christian iconography, she wields a mean whipped-cream bra and, according to soon-to-be-hubby Russell Brand, she's a virtual flatulence factory.

One of the things we haven't heard from the 25-year-old blue-wig-sporting pop diva, until now, is what inspired her to name her upcoming album Teenage Dream.

"I want to call it Teenage Dream because there's a song on the record [called that] and I wrote that song in Santa Barbara and it was a very pure moment for me, because that's where I'm from," she told MTV News. "And it was, like, where I started my creative juices. And also it kind of exudes this euphoric feeling because everybody remembers what their teenage dreams were — all the girls that were on your poster walls.

"And I want to continue to be one of those ... teenage wet dreams," she added, laughing.

With her red-hot MTV Movie Awards performance of "California Gurls" with Snoop Dogg, Perry likely provided plenty more of those moist moments. Although there wasn't any of the teased nudity, Perry dressed up like a DayGlo Wonder Woman, complete with electric-blue hair and LED-encrusted Daisy Dukes, which was surely enough to send some teenage fantasies into overdrive.

Perry, who is slated to host the upcoming Teen Choice Awards on August 9, also made news this week when she appeared to dis Lady Gaga's new "Alejandro" video, tweeting, "Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke." Perry, who was raised in a strict religious household, seemingly took issue with the controversial video's depiction of sacred Christian iconography, including scenes of Gaga swallowing Rosary beads and strutting around in a rubber nun's habit with an upside-down cross over her crotch.
