Katy Perry forced not to wear bra as she revels in 451% sales increase of her music

Katy Perry's bra has been branded a health hazard by her insurers and they'd told her to stop wearing it.

But this isn't any old bra that you'd find in your lingerie drawer, the money men were in fact referring to Katy Perry's rotating bra that she wears on stage.

They are worried her wig will get caught in the spinning discs and cause strain, if not an injury to her neck.

And they're not without cause, this had happened before in the red and white dress Katy wears as she opens her concerts in her movie, Katy Perry: Part Of Me.

Although true to form, the star has a fun take on events…

The signer told The Sun:  "My hair got caught in the wheels of my spinning peppermint bra and began to coil around and around.

"I'm forced to just go with it so, by the end of the song, it looked quite like I was licking my own t**. What a girl does for her art."

We love Katy's say-it-how-it-is attitude but she's had to redesign this iconic outfit saying:

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

Not that a new outfit will put a dent in her fortune, especially as the star has seen a sales boost in her music of 451 per cent.

Following the release of her movie, Katy's album Teenage Dream is now number two in the US Billboard chart.

And not just that, it sold just shy of 80,000 copies in the week after her film was released.

Go Katy!
