Singer-songwriter Katy Perry recently stirred up criticism after she posted three photos and a video on Instagram, in which she donned a skimpy two-piece red bikini and visor.

The Grammy-winning musician posed on a balcony, basking in the sunlight while drinking a can of Drink De Soi, a non-alcoholic beverage brand she co-founded with Morgan McLachlan last January.

In the video, which was also shared on TikTok, Perry continued posing with her drink, occasionally switching angles and running her fingers through her long black hair.

Another part of the clip showed her walking up the stairs with the same beverage, this time wearing a stylish, see-through dress adorned with large sequins and paired with chic heels.

In the next photo, she sat by the stairs, posing with her head tilted sideways as she sipped her drink. Perry had no full captions to describe her post, except for a simple heart emoji.

The acclaimed musician also gave fans another glimpse of her stylish ensemble against the picturesque exterior of a building, featuring a wrought iron balcony with intricate detailing on the second floor and tall, rectangular windows.

Another snap showed the “Dark Horse” hitmaker posing in a skimpy swimsuit in the middle part of the balcony, holding a drink in her left hand while raising her right leg.

When the “Firework” crooner shared her daring new post, netizens felt unimpressed. One bewildered commenter simply stated, “WHAT IS THIS.”

Another user labeled the singer’s post as “Unethical.” Additionally, someone remarked, “Ur getting old katy,” implying they felt Perry’s post was inappropriate for her age.

On the flip side, Perry’s fans rallied with enthusiastic support. One admirer expressed surprise but hinted at approval with heart-eyes and hands-up emojis, asking, “Girl what are you doing?”

Another fan declared, “You look amazing!” Then, someone else exclaimed with approval in a playful tone, “An absolute SLAY!!!! She is SPRITZING.”

Finally, a passionate fan highlighted Perry’s enduring appeal and influence, stating, “She Is The Element Of Youth!!!! This music is everything queen.”

The video was one of many times Perry has flaunted her style and revealing outfits. Earlier this year, she made headlines with a fearless fashion moment, wearing a mermaid dress featuring a surprising back detail.

At the Billboard Women in Music event in March, Perry wore a striking red two-piece ensemble that mirrored the allure of a mermaid. After her photos emerged, she became the center of widespread pregnancy rumors.

For her look, Perry opted for a daring blend of a strapless corset and a figure-hugging red skirt accented with silver fabric and criss-cross detailing that left her underwear and a bit of her backside exposed.

She paired her ensemble with pearl earrings and a pearl necklace, red lipstick, and towering black heels. She fashioned her black locks into a sleek long ponytail and fringe.

The “Roar” artist sparked a frenzy among onlookers who believe she could be pregnant with her second child with her fiancé Orlando Bloom. Social media platforms were flooded with comments and conjectures.

“She is definitely pregnant,” one person declared confidently. The curiosity didn’t stop there, with others hinting, “Um, baby #2 coming soon…” and outright stating, “Katy looks pregnant,” and “Is she pregnant [?] 🤰.”

While many focused on the possibility of a new addition to Perry’s family, some voices expressed concern over her choice of attire, particularly in light of her role as a mother. “I love you Katy but this is too much as [a] mom; have some respect,” criticized someone else.

Despite the criticism, Perry’s style and physique show that she keeps her health in check while navigating motherhood. The “American Idol” judge has maintained her stunning physique through a balanced diet and workout routine, which she adjusted since becoming a mother in 2020.

She now prioritizes time with her daughter, Daisy Dove, often placing workouts on the back burner. “I wanna give any extra moments I have to being present and being a mother,” she said.

Perry enjoys engaging in fun physical activities like dancing, snowboarding, and hiking. She aims to work out three to four times a week, including weight training or high-power yoga sessions.

Despite her busy schedule, she follows a healthy diet, especially when preparing for tours. Perry typically eats three to five small meals a day. Her breakfast often includes a banana or hard-boiled eggs, while lunch usually features protein with a salad or soup.

For dinner, she usually consumes a mix of protein, greens, and soup or pasta, earlier in the evening to match her daughter’s schedule. Perry’s moderation in diet and exercise allows her to maintain a balanced lifestyle as a mother and performer.

This balanced lifestyle has been evident in the special bond she shares with her daughter. Last May, Daisy Dove Bloom made a heartwarming appearance on an episode of “American Idol,” showcasing their close relationship.

On Mother’s Day, her daughter visited her during the Disney Night episode of “American Idol,” with her father and Perry’s partner, actor Orlando Bloom. The father-daughter duo was spotted in the audience of the singing competition show.

The beautiful little girl was sitting in her doting dad’s lap as they both watched Perry, who magically transformed into Cinderella during the show, with pride. During a press event for the show’s Disney Night episode, Perry discussed celebrating Mother’s Day with an interviewer from a media outlet.

In response to a prompt about what it meant for her to have Daisy, who is almost four years old, and her partner cheering her on from the crowd, Perry swooned over how “wonderful” the experience was for her.
