Katy Perry Describes Her Natural Hair Color as...Well...We'll Let Her Explain It

Get to work, Clairol.

While Kylie Jenner dabbles in wigs and extensions to distance herself from the real Kylie Jenner, Katy Perry, casual Iowa rally attendee, has a far simpler explanation for her own experiments in fanciful hair color: You don't have to wear as much jewelry!

"I'm naturally the most boring dishwater squirrel brown," she said in the November issue of Glamour. "So I've been playing with colors since I was 15. I loved the grunge green, and shocking blue was fun. Colored hair is such a huge accessory that you don't even need to add extra stuff."

In the same interview, she shows complete disregard for the state of her gel-manicured nails, recommends contour powder to "take care of your [facial] undercarriage," and uses the word "f*ckboy," probably a first for any magazine of our type.

"If your teeth and nails are good, you're a candidate," she said of her aesthetic requirements for a potential mate. "If you can't clean under your nails and you want to touch me, forget it. And personally, the less hair, the better. I like a trimmed man but not completely waxed. I'm not into that f*ckboy look."

History made.
