We all know Katy Perry has a pretty, umm, interesting wardrobe. From the infamous nipple cream cannons in her ‘California Girls’ video, to dresses made out of cupcakes and candy, to all that nutso skin-tight glittery junk she seems to have cornered the market in (Google search ‘Katy Perry costume’ to see what we mean). Unfortunately, however, she’s been forced to retire one of the more prominent features of her costume collection, over safety issues.

Her rotating ‘peppermint’ bra has been retired, after her management and insurance company became worried that it would put too much of a strain on her neck and back. Oh, and her wigs always get caught up in the spinning wheels.

“My hair got caught in the wheels of my spinning peppermint bra and began to coil around and around,” she 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 tit. What a girl does for her art.”

Even in a kiddy-friendly, bubblegum pop live show dominated by back-up dancers, candy and cake products, glitter and light, Perry’s insurance company is scared that she will injure herself on this obviously lethal brassiere, and have told her to can it from future gigs.

“I keep being told the insurers are worried I will injure my neck,” she said.

“I seriously doubt it could be lethal but they want a new bra designed that will not allow hair to be caught up.”

So stay tuned for the next exciting instalment of “stuff Katy Perry uses to hold up her boobs,” because a new style is coming!
