I know I say this constantly and it must be getting old, but I can’t help it. I love Katy Perry. I love Katy like this nice cool breeze blowing through my window on this scorching hot day. She’s just as refreshing to me. She puts on a show for the photographers every time she gets the chance and one gets the feeling that Katy Perry is a character she portrays in the media and not what she’s like at home. Some call that fake. I call that necessary. She keeps something of herself private and I think celebrities need that. While we see all the trademarks of a Katy Perry photo shoot here (the cleavage baring dress, the unusually colored hair, the dramatic, attention grabbing eye makeup), this is definitely a more stripped back version of Perry’s normal photo shoots. There is no dramatic backdrop. There is no crazy costume. Even her breasts are mostly covered albeit covered by black lace. It’s just Katy and a couch and I think the result is sensational. This is quite possibly my favorite set of Katy Perry photos. Just beautiful.
