Katy Perry used a music video once again to show off her pregnancy, this time stripping naked under a waterfall while cradling her bump.
On Friday, Katy released the first official single — «Daisies» — from her upcoming album alongside an adorable video.
But with her bump no longer being kept a secret, Katy took the opportunity to proudly show it off.
«I wrote this song a couple months ago as a call to remain true to the course you’ve set for yourself, regardless of what others may think,» Katy said of the song. «Recently, it has taken a new meaning for me, in light of what the whole world is experiencing.»
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Katy’s bump has taken centre stage in a music video after she used the visual for «Never Worn White» to announce her pregnancy to the world.
A month later, she jumped on Instagram to reveal that she and fiancé Orlando Bloom were expecting a baby girl, posting an adorable picture of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor covered in pink cake frosting.
Speaking about being pregnant in quarantine during a recent interview, Katy explained that despite the circumstances, she was «doing well» and enjoying being at home with her family.
However, Katy revealed that despite the fact she «always wanted» to be a mother, she wasn’t sure if she would ever settle down with a family of her own because she «didn’t have the maternal gene».
But, despite being pregnant and in quarantine, Katy is still hard at work. In between judging American Idol from home, the singer has also been putting the finishing touches to her album with the help of her brother-in-law.
