Katy Perry, Rolling Stone
"I started praying for breasts when I was, like, 11," she laughed. "And God answered that prayer above and beyond, by, like, 100 times, until I was like, 'Please, stop, God. I can't see my feet anymore. Please stop!' I was a lot more rectangular then. I didn't understand my body. Someone in sixth grade called me 'Over-the-shoulder boulder holder.' I didn't know I could use them. So, what I did was, I started taping them down. How long did I tape them down for? Probably until I was about 19. And, no, I don't have any psychological pain because of it." Watch the behind-the-scenes coverage of her photo shoot and read more of the interview at RollingStone.com.
