Katy Perry has sparked outrage after posing topless in a daring backstage photo

KATY PERRY set off some fireworks among her 148 million avid Instagram followers after posting a saucy topless shot yesterday.

Using the opportunity to show off her latest wig, musical star Katy Perry posed topless with her back to the camera, revealing a glimpse of side boob and a long mane trailing all the way down to her hips. Clad in nothing else but a pair of baggy black cargo pants, she captioned the photo: "Let it burn baby", in reference to her latest music video.

In another shot, she sipped from a cup while boasting a silver chainmail dress draped over herself.

The snaps give an insight into the dramatically glamorous 'Let It Burn Baby' video, which she premiered in the midst of the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship earlier this week in the USA.

What's more, the song, a collaboration with Alesso, has made history already.

"[I partnered] with Alesso to become the first artist to ever debut a global music video within a live event on ESPN," she explained in a press release.

A flurry of support came in from the millions of followers who were glued to Katy's feed.

Sally Kohn spotted the "Do Not Hose Down" sign on the wall next to Katy in her cover photo and wrote back from her blue-ticked account to cheer her on: "DO HOSE DOWN. DO! You gonna burn it all down."

MiaMoretto concurred: "Now that’s the content we’ve been waiting for."

Meanwhile, her fiance, 45-year-old British actor Orlando Bloom, with whom she has a daughter named Daisy Dove, chimed in jokingly: "Babe plz can we get some more hazelnut milk? We’re running low."

More banter between the pair emerged in Katy's previous post in which she wished the Capricorn father of her child a very happy birthday yesterday.

"Happiest 45th to the kindest, deepest, most soulful, sexy & strong man I know. Thank you for being a constant compass, an unwavering anchor and bringing joi de vivre into every room you walk in.
