Katy Perry wants fans to know not everything they see on social media is real. The Smile singer took to TikTok on Sunday, December 6, to share some stunning looks she wore for a photo shoot, and she revealed something highly relatable. Underneath the glam clothes, she had on a pair of Spanx.
She told fans this in a classic Katy Perry way. In a TikTok video, we see her wearing a chic blue trench coat and heels, strutting, and serving pop-star face. Then at the end of the clip, she makes a funny face and lifts up her jacket to reveal the Spanx.
“#whatmakesawoman #foryou 🙃,” she captioned the video on Instagram, both a nod to her new song and the impossible beauty standards placed on women. Check it out for yourself, below.
Of course, social media users are living for her candour. “Thank you Katy for sharing with us that you are a real woman,” one person tweeted. Another wrote, “Katy Perry speaking truth, spanx are a postpartum woman’s best friend.”
And the Instagram comments were just as sweet. “BUSINESS POWER WOMAN,” reads one reply. “SERVE AFTER SERVE,” reads another.
This is just one of the many times Perry has been transparent with fans this year. In August she posted a mirror selfie just days after giving birth to her and Orlando Bloom’s daughter, Daisy Dove. She’s even talked about how her and Bloom’s relationship was tested during quarantine while she was pregnant.
“God bless him, he’s still here, which is amazing and commendable,” Perry said during a May 2020 chat with Sirius Hits 1. “Because I have definitely tested him and been like, ‘Oh yeah? You think you can handle me? Let’s see it!’”
