Katy Perry posed topless for the August issue of UK magazine Esquire which could serve as good publicity for her upcoming album "Teenage Drama".
During the photo shoot, Perry wore a high-waisted underwear, black heels and a long necklace that hung in her cleavage.
"It's Lucille Ball meets Bob Mackie. It's about innuendo," she said of her sense of style.
"I want everybody to get the joke, but I want them to think about it for a minute.
"I aimed a little bit sexy with the hair. I wanted to just grow up a little bit. I'll be 25 this year."
Perry told the magazine that she has her stylist to thank for her uniqye style. "My stylist is a continuous burst of 'Yes we can.' He dreams just as retarded as I dream," she said.
Meanwhile, "Teenage Drama" will hit record stores in August.
