Katy Perry‘s 3-D movie Part Of Me showed that being a pop star is really hard work. But it also can be pretty dangerous, especially with the near-constant threat of spinning peppermint bras devouring your wigs. Perry’s insurance company has advised the singer to stop wearing her signature candy-colored dress since her hair could get caught in it and lead to neck strain.
“My hair got caught in the wheels of my spinning peppermint bra and began to coil around and around,” said Perry of her colorful tour costume, as reported by UK’s 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.”
“I keep being told the insurers are worried I will injure my neck,” she continued. “I seriously doubt it could be lethal but they want a new bra designed that will not allow hair to be caught up.”
This safety hazard is pretty much moot considering that the odds of Perry wearing that outfit again are low now that the Teenage Dream era appears to be (finally) over. But we suppose this means any future Katy costumes will be non-mechanical. Where’s the fun in that?!
