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.
