If you thought the music video for Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” was a sugar rush, the singer proved things were getting even sweeter with the cover art of her latest album.

Perry, 25, ditched her daisy dukes for, erm, her birthday suit on the cover of Teenage Dream, which she unveiled on Wednesday during a Ustream live chat.

“Oh my God, what will my mother think?” Perry asked as she saw the cover art for the first time. “It’s so gorgeous. I’m so excited. I’m nervous. I’m shaking a bit. This will be my first piece of real art.”
