Gentlemen, take note! If you want to date Katy Perry, there are some things you have to whip into shape. One of them? Body grooming.John Mayer, Russell Brand

And not just general hygiene. The "I Kissed a Girl" singer, 30 — who has famously been off and on with Hollywood playboy John Mayer and was married to British comedian Russell Brand — revealed that she wants her man to be clean, but what is most important is his hair… down there. "If your teeth and nails are good, you're a candidate. If you can’t clean under your nails and you want to touch me, forget it," she told Glamour on Oct. 7, adding, "And personally, the less hair, the better. I like a trimmed man but not completely waxed. I’m not into that f–kboy look."

But her strict rules aren't only for the guys. She also revealed what her beauty standards are for herself, on a day-to-day basis. "I’m Katy Perry onstage. At home I’m Katheryn Hudson. I’ve created this cartoon look when performing, but offstage I don’t always have three hours to put it together. That’s when I’m just about lashes, shaping my brows, and more natural skin," she revealed. 

The Part of Me star also admitted that she's just getting into a Kardashian-approved beauty routine: contouring. "I just learned how to shade a little bit so you slim your face down and take care of your undercarriage underneath your chin."

And the reason why Perry's hair is always a different color? "I’m naturally the most boring dishwater squirrel brown," she said. "So I’ve been playing with colors since I was 15. I loved the grunge green, and shocking blue was fun. Colored hair is such a huge accessory that you don’t even need to add extra stuff."

When it comes to beauty, Perry isn't afraid to be a little rebellious and actually breaks the rules on purpose when her nails are involved. "Now I’m really into a gel mani. People talk about, 'Oh, you know, it hurts your nail beds.' I’m like, 'Listen, nobody is talking about how strong your nail beds look.' They’re saying, 'Oh my God, that mani is incredible.'"
