Katy Perry’s topless pink-cloud album cover: cheesy or so cheesy it’s cool?


First of all, I was just going to make fun of Katy Perry for doing another topless photo shoot (for Jesus!), this time for her Teenage Dream album cover art. But I can’t – this is a painting! Damn, this is a really good painting, y’all. I truly thought it was a photograph. Of course, it’s still cheesy as hell. Pink clouds/cotton candy? Barf. A little wisp of pink covering her ass? Ugh. Who does this appeal to other than tween girls and pedophiles?

In other Katy Perry news, she’s making poor Russell Brand sell his shagging pad in London. All because he thinks he wants to build a life with Katy (because he’s addicted to their drama, perhaps?):

Russell Brand’s £2.5 million London pad has too much “history” for his fiancé Katy Perry so he is putting the property on the market, according to reports. The comedian is selling his four-bedroom, five-storey home in Hampstead and is reportedly planning on moving to New York to start married life.

The 2000 square foot home boasts modern gothic-inspired fireplaces, a giant yoga room, kinky mirrors and the supposedly infamous “hot-tub, with a built-in flat screen TV and overhead canopy, offering complete privacy’.

‘Now they are getting married, Katy didn’t feel comfortable with the amount of girls who knew where Russell lived – and of course all the history it carries,” a friend told the Mirror.

‘And Russell has moved on now. He wants to make a home for them to romp in. When he has been in London recently he had been staying in Claridge’s instead so that he could sell the house.’

Some reports suggest the house has already been snapped up. One thing the soccer-obsessed Get Him to the Greek Star won’t be leaving behind? His West Ham United cat bowl.

All I can think of is how much regret Russell is going to have when he and Katy split. He’s going to be heartbroken he sold his shagging pad, he really is. Oh well – maybe Katy and Rusty will make it work. Ha!

41590, NEW YORK, NEW YORK - Tuesday June 15, 2010. Katy Perry performs a mini concert in Times Square to launch the new 2011 VW Jetta wearing a palm tree clad PVC dress. Dressed in a skintight dress (with hot pink palm trees) and her hair pulled back into a sleek ponytail, the California Gurls singer also performed her other two hit songs, Hot N Cold and I Kissed A Girl. The pop songstress also shows off her new matching tattoo with fiance Russell Brand, seen on the inside of her right arm, Anuugacchati Pravaha meaning Go With the Flow.

    Still yawning over the “reveal”

    Lol @ “First of all, I was just going to make fun of Katy Perry for doing another topless photo shoot (for Jesus!)”
    Ah yes, for Jesus….

  5. Snarf says:

    Wasn’t that still from her “California Gurls” video?

  6. ligeia says:

    looks like she is laying on a giant cotton candy ball! i like it personally, sure it’s cheesy but it’s in line with other pop album covers so eh…

  7. KLO says:

    *singing* So pretty. But oh so boring.

  8. ima says:

    That’s actually a painting by Will Cotton, who was also the art director for the “California Gurls” video. This may look a little cheesy, but seriously guys—look him up! His work is amazing!

  9. gabs says:

    Ugh I liked her first album with ur so gay, thinking of you, i kissed a girl, but she has definitely regressed. Plus how can she diss gaga for being obscene when she is practically naked all the time now? hypocrite!

    Though – I saw her at warped 08 and she sings very good live and was entertaining. I just feel she can be better than “California girls”. I want Old Katy

  10. guesty says:

    like the song. hate the vid. pic is cheesy.

  11. Will Cotton painted this portrait. It is typical of his signature style which utilizes ice cream & candy of all kinds, check out his paintings here!

  12. Statler says:

    One thing Katy Perry’s proven time & again since she became well-known is that she’s incapable of being cool.

  13. Lisa S. says:

    I recently watched a documentary on Renaissance artists…. watching that will definitely make you feel insignificant about your own paintings. haha Will Cottons work is amazing as well. He definitely has a fascination with cotton candy skies.

  14. TQB says:

    I kinda dig the cover art. Can’t stand her music. Uninterested in her impending marriage, unless I get a video of her uber Christian parents having to have dinner with swearing sex addict SIL.

  15. Sandy says:

    Its okay. Its a yawn like most everything else about this very pretty but very average pop star.

  16. Jover says:

    Yes Statler KP isn’t capable of being cool. First rule of cool is if you have to act it, you aren’t. Arguably, Jimi Hendrix was the coolest person that ever lived, and even his persona changed from 1965 living with the Isley Brothers to Monterrey Pop and can anything embody the 60s more than Jimi’s appearance and performance at WOodstock. KP embodies nothing but manufactured pop drivel songs she doesn’t write and can’t even sing live very well. BTW isn’t she 24 and isn’t her real name Katy Hudson. Not even close to being cool. BTW, are any pics of Jimi photoshopped – NO, authenticity and talent the essence of coolness, something KP and her ilk will never have.

  17. Angelina says:

    She is absolutely stunning.

  18. Statler says:

    @Jover- I so agree, Jimi was awesome. He’s a great example of the basic rule- the essence of cool is not giving a damn & just doing your own thing. Because of this, I think there are actually very few cool celebrities.

  19. Canucklehead says:

    Cheesy, but probably not as cheesy as the album’s contents

  20. Picopink says:

    Canucklehead- You beat me to it! Totally agree.

  21. Mika says:

    I used to like Katy Perry. When Ur so Gay and Hot and Cold came out, I thought she was one hundred times better for her audience (14 year olds) then Britney and that Avril piece of shit ever was. Admit it, she was funny once! Now she’s just trying to hard to be quirky and busty and no one is going to relate to her music because it isn’t about anything, it’s just more bubblegum stupidity.

  22. annaloo says:

    I cannot believe Will Cotton sold out like this.. Katy Perry is not the one who should be a muse for his work

  23. 6 says:

    How can anyone get a true feeling for how attractive she is. She always has so much makeup on. Like spackling. Why does she want to cover up that apparently smooth pretty skin?

  24. jane16 says:

    I had the same reaction as kaiser: barf.

  25. Angelina says:

    @6 – Are you serious? I think the majority of women would die to look like her!

  26. denise says:

    It’s cute and cheesy, like her.

  27. Shawna says:

    It’s hilarious in a soft-burlesque kind of way. I’d go so far as to say it’s the best thing I’ve seen/heard her in. Ever.

  28. grrrlgrace says:

    love her, think she’s awesome

  29. Canucklehead says:

    Hey Diane Hoeptner:

    That Will Cotton stuff can’t really be taken seriously right?

    It’s not a ‘style’ as much as a fetish. It’s for those wierdos who like girls covered in food and stuff.

    Also Katy’s bottom photo, she’s got her sexy Vulcan thing happening.

  30. gg says:

    Will Cotton is just ripping off Bouguereau anyway.

  31. Diva says:

    *laughs when people try and tell other people what is art and what is not!

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha

  32. Sage says:

    I have never ever heard of Kaite Perry before, but this is one of the most amazing paintings I’ve recently seen- and I’m a portrait artist! And I go to the Smithsonian galleries in DC alot!
    “Cheezy” ? YES!!!!
    Well done? Style, execution, handling of values.. one doesn’t have to ‘like’ the picture,nor the style… but give a shout out and appreciate the execution of the subject matter. PRETTY BADASS IF YOU ASK ME. Forget Katie Perry. The cover story needs to be on Will Cotton.

  33. emv says:

    it looks very pin up… i like it

  34. 6 says:

    Angelina-I am totally serious. She has pretty skin why cover it up. I guess I’m the minority.

  35. Angelina says:

    @6 -
    I can see what you mean. She does cake on the foundation at times.

  36. Mr. Grimm says:

    “Who does this appeal to other than tween girls and pedophiles?”

    Why on earth would that appeal to pedophiles? The subject looks well over 25 or 30…
