Sometimes I wish my skin was a costume
That I could just unzip, and strip

from Katy Perry – Love Me Lyrics on Rap Genius


The skin represents all the day’s troubles that builds within herself. Occasionally, she wishes that she can toss her life aside and take a rest. Katy’s crazy celebrity life rarely gives her this luxury.

The words “unzip” and “strip” also are usually used sexually, but in this context, it’s more emotionally. This largely contrasts with the innuendo in Birthday.

Also note that the skin is on the outside of the body, representing a facade for who she really is on the inside
