Katy Perry may be gearing up to release her Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection album, but don't let that sugary title and Candy Land-themed artwork fool you -- Katy won't let the sweet stuff ruin her perfect pearly whites. The singer allegedly has a veritable obsession with brushing her teeth -- six times a day!
According to a Daily Star source, a childhood trauma led to Katy's obsessive-compulsive beauty habit. "We won't go anywhere without a stack of brushes," an insider close to Katy said. "When she was a kid she had 13 cavities. So she now brushes her teeth six times a day.'' Apparently Katy is so scared of cavities, she keeps 20 brand new toothbrushes on hand at all times!
In a previous interview with YouTube, Katy confessed her habit was inspired by none other than Britney Spears. ''I brush my teeth all the time. I wanted them to be, like, Britney Spears white," she said. "I used to grow up seeing her music videos and be like, 'What does she do? Does she get a new set of teeth all the time? They're so white'."
Guess Katy was really talking about dental hygiene when she sang, "This is the part of me/ That you're never gonna ever take away from me!" LOL!
