Right up there with Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga, Katy Perry is by far one of the wackiest dressed pop stars of our time. But instead of Minaj's cutesy-meets-WTF couture and Lady Gaga's bizarre, brooding, and typically bum-baring looks, Katy persists in dressing like she just stepped out of a Japanese children's cartoon or off of the Candy Land game board.
Although she's been rocking it for the entire duration of her Teenage Dream promo, we're still feelin' it for the most part. But apparently, the company that insures Katy's tour is not. Well, at least they're opposed to one novelty lingerie item in particular: Her infamous, trademark spinning peppermint bra, which is like a lower rent version of her conical bra that shoots whipped cream, this bra is animated to look like two twirling Starlight mints. Due to a scary on-stage incident which Katy herself thought nothing of, the insurers flipped out and actually banned the kooky contraption!
Katy explained to 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 tit. What a girl does for her art.
Charming! Heh. But the insurers were freaked that it could happen again, and if Katy's neck was on the line (literally), theirs would be too! So although she "doubts it could be lethal," the pop star's not allowed to wear the spinny bra until a new, accident-proof one is designed. Aww.
Yeah, it's kind of a bummer that the bra won't be making appearances in her shows 'til it's redesigned, but it's alright. As passionate as I'm sure she is about her on-stage look, Katy's better off without truly killer fashion!

Do you think it was wise for Katy's insurers to ban her deadly bra?
