Katy Perry Sexy Bed Selfie: Singer Compares Self To Heroine Of Novel About Pedophilia

Katy Perry posted a selfie taken in bed to her Twitter account Thursday morning — a photo that was notable for displaying an unusual amount cleavage while the “Firework” singer wears a barely-there nightie. But the sexy selfie perhaps even more noteworthy for its caption, in which the 30-year-old Katy Perry compares herself to the 12-year-old title character of a famous novel about pedophilia.

“Feeling a little Lolita rn,” (i.e. “right now), Perry says in the caption to her sexy selfie, making a reference to the classic 1955 novel by Vladimir Nabokov entitled Lolita — a novel that has twice been adapted to film. The first movie adaptation, directed by Stanley Kubrick, came in 1962. The next major adaptation came 35 years later in the 1997 film of Lolita by 9 1/2 Weeks director Adrian Lyne.

Katy Perry markets false eyelashes which carry the brand name “Lovely Lolita,” but whether she is wearing them in the sexy bed selfie is not specified.
