Los Angeles: Singer Katy Perry reportedly brushes her teeth six times a day because she is scared of getting fillings. The singer is said to keep 20 new toothbrushes.
"We won`t go anywhere without a stack of brushes," a website has quoted a source as saying.
"When she was a kid she had 13 cavities. So she now brushes her teeth six times a day."
The 27-year-old earlier revealed that her tooth-cleaning obsession was inspired by Britney Spears.
"I brush my teeth all the time. I wanted them to be, like, Britney Spears white. I used to grow up seeing her music videos and be like, `What does she do? Does she get a new set of teeth all the time? They`re so white`," she said.
"I`ll brush my teeth (after) breakfast, lunch and dinner... I did have 13 cavities at one time, so you can imagine why I`m so freaked out. When I was a kid I didn`t really go to the dentist a lot and when I finally went, they were like, `You might as well get a new set of teeth`," she added.
