    Katy Perry is the ultimate California Gurl through and through, having grown up by the beach.

    The singer spoke about growing up in Santa Barbara and her beachside upbringing in W, saying, "I left for L.A. when I was 17. Santa Barbara was boring to me back then. Now all I want to do is be bored in Santa Barbara, because it is a beautiful place! But when I was young, I felt a little trapped on an island—my family isn't well-off, and it was kind of tough to be hanging out with the millionaire families that live there."

    The stylish singer was able to get creative with limited means, saying, "I always made do—if I had five dollars, I'd go to the thrift stores on State Street and get my vintage cardigans and pencil skirts. Thank God for the body, because that '40s look really worked on me."

    She does have quite a pinup girl figure, doesn't she?
