In the most surprising newsworthiness of 2009 thus far Katy Perry's assurance to remain celibate for a year survived less than twenty-four hours. The pop singer pronounces she would prefer to "die" than lose out on nookie, asserting her voluntary sex ban was never intended to be considered seriously. Yesterday we stated how Katy projected to maneuver away from men in 2009, coming after her grievous break up from rapper Travis McCoy last month. She stated, "I have really accepted a vow of sexual abstention this year. No smooching anybody. Only my cat, Kitty Purry." All the same she has at once taken back her promise. Katy stated, "I'm not going to be celibate. That was a prank! "Please! Sexual abstention for the whole year? I would sooner pass away."
