What does Kim Kardashian have in common with a mummy? Well, according to Katy Perry, a lot! In an attempt to defend some of the costumes her dancer’s wear on her ‘Prism’ tour, the pop star may have just thrown major shade at Kim!
Katy Perry, 29, discusses life on the road and how Kim Kardashian, 33, even inspired part of her “Prism” tour in a brand-new interview. Katy reveals that she drew inspiration from Kim’s famous backside for some of the controversial costumes featured in her show. However, the “inspiration” Katy talks about sounds like a diss. Did Katy really call Kim’s butt “plastic?”
Katy Perry On Kim Kardashian’s Butt: Did She Call It Plastic In ‘Rolling Stone’?
In the August issue of Rolling Stone, Katy addresses the critics who claim she’s culturally insensitive for having her dancers dress up as “big-bootied mummies” during a number on her “Prism” tour.
“As far as the mummy thing, I based it on plastic surgery,” Katy tells the mag. “Look at someone like Kim Kardashian or Ice-T’s wife, Coco. Those girls aren’t African-American. But it’s actually a representation of our culture wanting to be plastic, and that’s why there’s bandages and it’s mummies.”
