Katy Perry dropped the video for “Rise,” her inspirational Olympic anthem, on Thursday night, but the only thing people — including other celebrities — really want to talk about are those naked paddleboarding pics.
While vacationing in Sardinia, Italy, with her man, Orlando Bloom, on Tuesday, she enjoyed some couple time, including a beach picnic and some water sports. The rub? Orlando was naked most of the time, which one shutterbug capitalized on in a big way. Now the nude photos are making for a host of jokes about size, chafing, and things in that realm.
Orlando — or Lando, as Katy calls him — hasn’t commented about the invasion of privacy, perhaps because he was in a public place or maybe because he just doesn’t care. After all, there were people with them to set up their picnic, and he was comfortable being au naturel with them standing there. And the British actor has appeared in the buff on the big screen. (“Dude, it is what it is. It’s flesh and bone. It’s what we all are,” he said of his birthday suit screen time.) As for Katy, who was wearing a bikini in the photos — much to the relief of her Christian minister parents — she has been active on Twitter while promoting “Rise,” but she avoided the, um, elephant in the room.
Celebrities haven’t been avoiding the topic, though. They’ve used social media to make jokes or praise his manliness, whatever the case may be.

Hopefully none of these comments will get a rise out of the actor or his lady. Gosh — sorry. We couldn’t resist.
