Katy Perry’s Spinning Candy Bra Deemed An Insurance Liability

By Zachary Swickey

Pop star Katy Perry’s music is more sugar-coated than Madonna’s, but one thing the divas have in common is an affinity for unique bras in their touring wardrobe. Unfortunately for Perry, her blinged-out spinning peppermint bra has been deemed too dangerous by tour insurers.

The Sun reports that the costume, which got plenty of use on her “California Dreams” tour, is considered a hazard by insurers after an onstage mishap revealed it could injure her neck.

“My hair got caught in the wheels of my spinning peppermint bra and began to coil around and around,” Perry told The Sun. “I’m forced to just go with it so, by the end of the song, it looked quite like I was licking my own t**. What a girl does for her art.”

We’re sure the men in the audience were quite thrilled with the spectacle, but the party-pooping insurance company is worried about dear Katy. “I keep being told the insurers are worried I will injure my neck,” Perry revealed. “I seriously doubt it could be lethal but they want a new bra designed that will not allow hair to be caught up.”

“Well, I was always known at school as the over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder,” Perry joked.

A source defended the concerns of the insurance company, saying, “It may seem trivial but a simple pulled muscle can stop a performer like Katy from going on. Insurers don’t care about the art or the fun — just the dangers” … which admittedly makes sense.
