Katy Perry: I’ve Seen Kacey Musgraves Naked
Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves share the new Billboard cover and will soon be on tour together, but their familiarity doesn’t end there. Perry has seen Musgraves naked. “A couple of times,” Musgraves tells the outlet. “And it won’t be the last.”
The pop star and the country singer are teaming up for the “Crossroads” special on CMT next month, and later this summer Musgraves will be Perry’s opener on the Prismatic tour. Their mutual admiration runs deep. “I think [Kacey] straddles the line like I straddle the line of appropriateness and still maintaining a sexuality that is healthy and exciting,” explains Perry. She adds, “And it’s not all about that. It’s about sending inspiring and empowering messages and being a think-for-yourself type of woman.”
Perry says that she “cyber-stalked” Musgraves after hearing her song “Merry Go ‘Round,” leading to the collaboration. “I feel like we have the same eyes,” Perry tells Billboard. “Not in a physical sense, but in a way of perception.” Musgraves says, “We’re both very whimsical in our own ways, but I think at heart we’re both songwriters.” The “Crossroads” special will feature Perry providing backup vocals on Musgraves songs and perform hits from her own mega-selling albums.
Musgraves sounds enthusiastic about singing with Perry at upcoming concert dates. “For me, you could just put all your songs in a hat and just grab any of them and I would f*cking love to sing any of them,” she tells Perry.
