Katy Perry may have one of the most lusted-over chests in the pop world but that doesn’t mean that she has always been comfortable with her 32D bust.

The 26-year-old singer revealed in the March issue of Elle (via UsMagazine.com) that her breasts made her insecure when she was growing up in Santa Barbara, California.

“I had enormous boobs that I didn’t know what to do with, so I wore minimizers, which were not cute,” the star tells the magazine. “Those thick-a** straps! I got made fun of for the over-the-shoulder boulder holder, and all I wanted was to look like Kate Moss.”

Luckily, curvy Katy has come to terms with the fact that she’ll never be able to look like the famous supermodel waif.

“Little did I know that these things would come in handy someday,” Katy joked. In fact, the “California Gurls” singer has grown so comfortable with her bust that she often lets them be the butt of the joke. Check out Katy lightly mocking her large breasts in Saturday Night Live below.

Katy also told Elle that fans shouldn’t expect her to be like Lady Gaga when it comes to being dedicated to her craft.

“I think some people will die on the stage, and I’m not so sure I want to do that,” Katy explains, making a reference to Gaga’s infamous prediction that she would prefer to die on the stage in front of her fans. “Like, I want to have kids! I’m totally fine with saying that. I think some people are scared because they’re worried it’s going to ruin their career, but I want to live a full life.”
