Katy Perry’s insurers want her to get rid of her spinning candy bra.
The insurers are reportedly worried that Perry’s trademark rotating costume will strain her neck because her hair keeps getting caught in the spinning wheels – and now want a new costume made.
The Firework singer told The Sun: "I keep being told the insurers are worried I will injure my neck. I seriously doubt it could be lethal but they want a new bra designed that will not allow hair to be caught up.
"Well, I was always known at school as the over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder."
The Part of Me singer shared such an incident where it appeared she was ‘licking my own tit.”
She said: "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."
While Perry sees her candy-inspired costumes as art and doesn’t mind the apparent health risk, her insurers think otherwise.
A source added to the publication: "It may seem trivial but a simple pulled muscle can stop a performer like Katy from going on. Insurers don't care about the art or the fun - just the dangers."
Perry wears a lollipop-inspired rotating bra in her new 3D movie, Katy Perry: Part of Me, which is scheduled for release in South Africa on 7 September.
