Katy Perry is clapping back at Luke Bryan for his statement regarding her shaving, or rather, not shaving, her leg hair.
Last month, Perry revealed that given her busy schedule, she’s got a bit less time to do things that she would usually make a priority.
Speaking on “American Idol” on April 4, Perry shared, “As a new mother, I don’t have very much time, so I’ve quit shaving my legs. But when you sang, the hair on my legs grew an inch and a half!”
She then put her legs up on the table and Bryan took a peek.
“She literally has leg hair,” Bryan said.
Bryan then took to Instagram to write that Perry has “Gotta do something about that leg hair,” to which Perry replied, “No! I don’t got time, I’d rather cuddle with my daughter!”

Perry Gave Birth the Day Before Releasing Her Album ‘Smile’
Perry has opened up recently about motherhood and her new daughter, Daisy Dove, with fiancé Orlando Bloom.
During a February 2021 interview with Jimmy Kimmel, the “Roar” singer joked, “What they don’t tell you is nobody talks about the first six weeks after you have the baby. … Oh my god, that’s wild! What a roller coaster!”
She added that the day after giving birth happened to be the release date for her fifth album, “Smile.”
“I had my fifth album coming out… You know, every other album cycle, there’d be some kind of celebration or party or dinner, whatever, you know. This time, I was giving birth to the greatest gift of all for me, and then my album came out the next day, and I was in the hospital, and I could not wipe my own butt.”
Perry Wore a Crop Top in a July 2020 Video Interview & Said She’s ‘Grateful for My Body’
Near the end of her pregnancy, Perry discussed the journey on the “Kyle and Jackie O” show in July 2020, opening about her “swollen” pregnant body and adjusting to life as a mother. “I’m really grateful for my body. … I have so much respect for women — obviously, going through this process, you just get a whole new viewpoint. But everything is swollen. My hands are swollen, my feet are starting to swell. It’s starting to get to that point.”
The singer wore a crop top promoting her latest album during the video interview, showing off her pregnant belly. “I wanted to wear this piece of merch that I had made for my record, but I was like, ‘It’s a crop top. Can I wear that? I’m gonna be a mom. Then I was like, ‘F*** it. I can still be young and fun and wear a crop top!'”
In a May 2021 interview with People, Perry shared her appreciation for the nurses who cared for her in the hospital. “[Being pregnant] was the first time I had ever experienced nurses because I’d never been to the hospital. I had no idea how to surrender, but you definitely have to surrender after you have a baby. I didn’t know what I was surrendering into — I just did, and I was like, ‘Wow, these nurses are literally angels,'” she told People.
She added, “I really thought it was amazing that there were actually such incredible selfless angels out there that are working in healthcare. It was so positive. … They’ve been under a lot of intense stress.”
