Katy Perry sizzles in bare essentials
Get your low down on what's happening in the world of Hollywood, right here!
American singer and songwriter Katy Perry has posed topless wearing nothing but fishnet stockings in the recent issue of Rolling Stone.
The California Gurls singer is only slightly more dressed on the cover (wearing lingerie) and other interior shots.
Raised in California by strict, Christian pastor parents, the 25-year-old star explained how, despite her sometimes racy image, religious imagery and other elements in pop culture bother her.
'I am sensitive to Russell taking the Lord's name in vain and to Lady Gaga putting a rosary in her mouth,' Usmagazine.com quoted Perry as saying, referring to Lady Gaga's Alejandro video.
'I think when you put sex and spirituality in the same bottle and shake it up, bad things happen. Yes, I said I kissed a girl. But I didn't say I kissed a girl while f-ing a crucifix,' she said.
The new issue of Rolling Stone hits stands Wednesday.

Lady Gaga smashes MTV record with 13 nominations
Pop diva Lady Gaga has scored as many as 13 nominations at the MTV's 2010 Video Music Awards (VMAs), the most ever for an artist in a single year.
Some of the categories in which the 24-year-old singer is eligible to snag a Moonman trophy are best pop video, best dance music video, best female video, best choreography, and video of the year.
'I'm so honoured for all the little monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA nominations in a single year than any artist in MTV history,' News.com.au quoted the singer as saying in a statement.
She went on to say she was proud to have received an "unlucky" number of nominations -- 13 -- and that God put her on earth for three reasons -- 'To make loud music, gay videos and cause a damn raucous [sic]. Thank you, MTV!'
The awards ceremony will be held on September 12.
