Don’t push it, buster! Katy Perry gets a helping hand on wet and wild video shoot

It might not have been in the job description, but there were certainly no complaints when Katy Perry called on a male assistant to fix her outfit while filming a new video clip in Los Angeles yesterday.

The crew member helped the singer adjust her hot pink and black dress while filming scenes under a fountain at the Rose Gardens.

The playful star seemed unfazed at being manhandled and happily continued working on the video for Star Strukk, a collaboration with electroband 3oh!3.

It felt so wrong, it felt so right: Katy in typically provocative form during filming

Earlier the 24-year-old filmed scenes wearing a leopard-print mini-dress and vertiginous purple heels.

But while she may have looked ultra glam, she was actually hiding a dark grooming secret – hairy legs and a pimply face.

The Waking Up In Vegas singer revealed she arrived on set with spot cream on her face.


Making a splash: Katy got drenched during the shoot but seemed to enjoy herself

‘About to get scandalous in a fountain with 3oh3,’ she wrote on Twitter, referring to a naughty scene in the video.

‘But first I must go through the glam squad as I am arriving with zit cream still on. ZEXY!’

And she later tweeted to a friend on the micro-blogging site, ‘HELP: I skipped out on shaving my legs this morn andaout to go shoot 30h3 music video. Will I be okay? Is it good luck?’

The singer is collaborating with the Colorado-based band, which is made up of Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte.

Her co-stars in the video were very complimentary about her performance.

Nath, who goes under the Twitter name Nat3oh3, told her: ‘The camera loves u. It wants 2 bone u.’

And talking about the second day of shooting, he wrote: ‘Trying to look like dirtbags for opening scene. Not hard for us at all.’
