Katy Perry has vowed to hang up her skimpy outfits and stay covered up in a bid to keep fans focused on her music.

The “Firework” hitmaker burst onto the scene in 2008 with her raunchy anthem “I Kissed a Girl,” and was famous for her revealing outfits and saucy on-stage image.

However, at 28-years-old, the singer is determined to leave the sexy costumes to her pal and pop peer Rihanna.

She tells Britain’s Capital FM, “I’m just getting a little older and realized I can’t pull that off any more. If I had Rihanna’s body I would wear everything Rihanna wears, she looks fabulous in all of it.

“I want to keep the attention on my music. I have confidence in my songs, that’s where I have need most of the focus.”
