Katy Perry's Plan to Wear Latex as Long as She Can

Katy Perry is Dedicated to Wearing LatexJanet Mayer/Splash News Online

She’s one of Hollywood’s freest thinkers when it comes to fashion, and according to Katy Perry, her split-personality style started early. “I’ve always been girly…even though I was a tomboy,” the singer tells PEOPLE of her adolescent attitude. “My mother said when I was a kid, I was changing for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I don’t make it a big deal, I just do it.” These days, the singer still has just as much fun with her carousel of daring looks–and she’s taking full advantage of the situation while she can still rock her wardrobe of kaleidoscopic latex dresses. “They have an expiration date and that’s why I’m wearing them now at 25,” she explains. “I’m such a sucker for a theme, so if I go somewhere like Vegas, I’ll dress like Vegas! Or if it’s Christmas time, I’ll dress like Mrs. Claus!” But, she says, her craziest costumes are reserved for the stage–at least most of the time. “I think sometimes with the themed stuff…’I won’t be wearing that to get my Starbucks today,'” before musing, “Although, maybe my whipped cream bra I’ll wear, because I’ll help [the baristas] out. ‘I got it! I got it! Hold the cream! No worries.'” –Christie LaRusso; reporting by Jackie Fields

Congrats to The Amazing Race Couple on getting Married, and I’m glad Brooke Mueller is happy, and so are her Twin Sons, Bob & Max, and that she’s isn’t in Rehab again!

Happy Early 5th Birthday to Violet Affleck, and it was interesting hearing about 5 interesting facts about King Henry VI!

Man what is with these harsh comments? So WHAT if she is 25 (and not 18) and wearing a tight dress!!! Wear it at 35 if you have the figure for it! People need to realize that she is a performer not a politician! Sheesh.. I think she looks great, and knows how to have fun! Good for her that she can embrace her quirky and FUN personality! Hurray for creativity! See… no one understands artistic people, but other artistic people. I’d like to see that dress in a mint green color with light purple palm trees.. :-D
