Will Cotton inspires Kate Pary to pose naked on top of candyfloss...

Yuck. But who this Will Cotton by the way? A quick google on the name leads to some fantastical paintings. Take this one in the left for example. Does it really look like painting?

The two lady are supposedly lying (without any clothes on) on the top of the cotton candy clouds. I would have thought it's merely clouds with perhaps the dusk setting. It's still a fantastic painting, though.

By the way, there's even a Wikipedia article on Will Cotton. It's said that Will Cotton is an American painter and that his work primarily features landscapes composed of sweets, often inhabited by human subjects.

American singer Katy Perry, 25, posed naked on top of candyfloss for her latest album's cover -- all in the name of art. The fiancee of British comedian, Russell Brand, collaborated with painter Will Cotton to produce the cover for her second album Teenage Dream.

"Yes, I posed naked for the album but you can't really see that much of me," said Perry, who is slated to marry Brand soon.

"I love the artwork of Will Cotton and saw one of his works that had cotton candy lying around with different kinds of women in it. It was subtle. I wanted to be in that world and decided to use that for my album's cover," said Perry, whose parents are both pastors.

The singer is in town for the MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2010! concert at the Sunway Lagoon Resort today.

Perry refused to talk about her personal life at the roundtable interview.

Clad in a black dress with metallic embellishments, Perry appeared friendly and joked with the local media once in a while.

"I have a lot of personality in me that I wanted to show. Sometimes, I want to be fun, quirky, weird and all," Perry said.

The California-born was just a girl next door who grew up listening to gospel songs and singing in church when she was 10. Today, she has sold more than five million copies of her debut album, One of the Boys, which contains hits like I Kissed a Girl, Hot n Cold, Thinking of You and Waking Up in Vegas.

Teenage Dream will be released on Aug 30. Perry wrote all the songs in this album and collaborated with rapper Snoop Dogg in the first single, California Gurls. The single reached No. 1 on the Billboard Digital Songs and topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

"I collaborated with other composers, too, in writing songs. I think the lyrics are really important because those are the things that end up on T-shirts. They need to be memorable," said Perry.

"But it doesn't mean that I make the best songs even though I composed them myself."

Teenage Dream was inspired by Perry's life in her hometown, Santa Barbara, California. "I can't run from where I came from, nobody can."

Other songs include The One that Got Away, Peacock, Firework and Who Am I Living For.

"My parents haven't heard my new album yet. I'm sure they are going to grunt when they hear Peacock," said Perry, who hopes to move her fans emotionally and physically through her new album.

"When I was touring, I wanted people to dance more. So I wrote an album that made people move, yet didn't sacrifice the story substance that I had on the last record," said the two-time Grammy-nominated singer.

After here, Perry will be performing in Singapore's SINGFest on Tuesday.

From Asiaone, "Katy: I was indeed naked".
