Katy makes a big splash for music festival

KATY PERRY had a novel way of meeting the press in Singapore -- she held her press conference in a bikini in a pool, on top of a hotel.

The California Gurls singer traded the usual meeting room environment for deck chairs and inflatable floats, with a picturesque view of the city skyline at the most unusual media gathering at "a pool on top of a building shaped like a boat."

To kick off the pool affair held at Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Katy strips out of her beach dress into her teeny togs and fields questions from a couple of brave reporters and fans who had to first immerse themselves "at least knee-deep" in the pool.
