Katy Perry has revealed she was nicknamed ''over the shoulder boulder holder'' at school because of her large breasts.
Katy Perry was nicknamed "over the shoulder boulder holder" at school.
The 26-year-old singer has revealed that her ample chest led to her classmates ridiculing her and referring to her by a slang term for a bra, but now her buxom figure receives compliments.
Tweeting about her school years she wrote: "#Inmiddleschool they called me "over the shoulder boulder holder" now they call me "hot" (sic)"
The 'Firework' hitmaker - the daughter of Christian pastors - also admitted she had "c**p" lunches but no one ever wanted to trade and give her their more interesting foodstuffs.
She tweeted: "I had such c**p(healthy) brown paper bag lunches that I couldn't trade ANYTHING. Had carrot sticks NO dip. (sic)"
Although Katy - who is married to actor and comedian Russell Brand - was teased for having large breasts as a teenager, she has revealed in the past that she prayed throughout her childhood that she would grow up to have a big bust.
She said: "I remember really vividly kneeling by my bed as a nine year old, saying my prayers and asking God to give me boobs that were so big that if I laid on my back I wouldn't be able to see my feet.
"Eventually that request was granted. A bit of divine intervention displays the power of prayer!"
