    Katy Perry was in top form on NBC’s Today Show this morning (Aug. 27), performing two of her hit songs off her latest album. With her great curves, black hair and bouncy bangs, she’s quickly becoming the modern equivalent of ’50s pin up Betty Page.

    Perry loaded up the stage with fake clouds of cotton candy and backup dancers wore multi-colored ‘fros from her “California Gurls” performance of the song.

    Perry has been going full-bore to promote the new album. The single “California Gurls” was released June 20; she has a video out and the album will drop on August 30.

    In addition to making the talk show rounds, Perry let it all hang out — or at least almost all — in a photo shoot for Esquire magazine.

    She debuted her new single live at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday (June 5). It’s her sexiest single yet and featured bikini-topped dancers.

    Katy has one of the hottest bods in music and it looks like she intends to deploy all of her assets to move the record.

    Katy said she was inspired to write a song about California after hearing Alicia Keys and Jay-Z’s tribute to New York in “Empire State of Mind.”
