Katy Perry divides opinions with Cozy Little Christmas music video

Katy Perry has stripped down to nothing but a towel a raunchy music video to accompany her Christmas release.

The US pop singer released the video for Cozy Little Christmas this week, a song which was first released last year as an Amazon Prime exclusive.

Decorated to look like a Christmas ornament at times, the video features Perry as a flirty version of Mrs Claus, soaking up the sun and relaxing with a very pleased looking Santa.

Perry and Santa hang by the pool, take shots of eggnog and strip down completely for a very intimate couples massage by a reindeer.

The song features lyrics such as “Nothing lights my fire or wraps me up, baby, like you do,” and “A little whisky, we’re getting frisky. No, we ain’t stressing, just caressing.”

The video drew a mixed reaction from fans on YouTube, with some dubbing it a Christmas version of California Girls and others concerned by some of the sexual imagery.

“Not cool or cute at all to try to sexualize a reindeer and Santa Claus. Absolutely no regard for young children,” one user wrote.

“Why does she have to make everything into something sexual, it’s Christmas!” another added.
