The 26-year-old singer said in an interview in the December edition of British Cosmopolitan that feeling sexy was great, but she preferred being more of a tease.
"I'm like a burlesque girl," she said. "I definitely won't be doing a Playboy spread."
People said Saturday that Perry also credited her marriage to Russell Brand for boosting her confidence. "I think that when you're in a supportive relationship, you don't care anymore about outside," she said.
