VH1’S SALUTE TO THE TROOPS BRINGS OUT THE STARS…AND SNOOKI

Following her performances the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and the Grammy Concert, Katy Perry put on a glittery gold number as she performed during the VH1 Divas Salute the Troops event at the MCAS Miramar in Miramar, CA on Friday (December 3).

Joined by R&B singer Keri Hilson, country crooner Jennifer Nettles and rapstress Nicki Minaj, the California Gurls singer had the crowd on their feed as she performed an updated version of Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, a 1940 hit for the Andrews Sisters.

Later, Katy teamed a sequinned pair of blue hotpants with a stars and stripes vest top as she rocked the stage solo performing a string of her catchy hits.

It comes after the 26-year-old admitted she asked VH1 to downsize her chest in the posters advertising the show, tweeting: “I was the one who asked VH1 to tone down my digitalised image on the poster, particularly the size of my chest.”

The skin baring didn’t end there. Unfortunately. Host Kathy Griffin, who has just celebrated her 50th birthday, raised the bar as she stripped off to a camouflage bikini and belt made of bullets, which she unselfconsciously teamed with a pair of high heeled PVC boots.

And, oh yeah, Snooki and The Situation were also there. For some reason or another.

The television event, to be broadcast on Sunday (December 5), will feature female acts performing at a Marine Corps Air Station in San Diego and at an undisclosed military base in the Middle East.

Katy Perry had a busy day of rehearsals in Miramar, CA today (December 2).

Joined by R&B singer Keri Hilson and country crooner Jennifer Nettles, the pop star was seen on stage during day two of rehearsals for VH1 Divas Salute the Troops presented by the USO.

While perfecting the show, Katy tweeted: “I LOVE IT HERE! I feel SO safe & there’s a STARBUCKS on base?! Oh sh*t… I’m gonna join the Marines! PLUS camo is super trendy!”

The VH1 Divas Salute the Troops concert event will be televised on Sunday (December 5) at 9:00 PM on VH1.

Friday’s opening number will feature Katy, Keri, Jennifer and rapstress Nicki Minaj teaming for an updated version of Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, a 1940 hit for the Andrews Sisters.

“The show is very Bob Hope-ish, and that’s ultimately the source of inspiration, just to have that feeling again and the Hollywood glamour,” said Divas creative director Laurie Ann Gibson, who has choreographed hit videos for Katy, Nicki, Lady Gaga and many other pop stars. “When we open the show, it will feel like Bob Hope — iconic.”
