What do you get when a bunch of divas come together to salute our troops? Kathy Griffin in a camo bikini, and Katy Perry singing a sexy version of the WWII-era hit ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,’ that’s what!
VH1 hosted their annual ‘Divas’ series, but this year gave it a patriotic twist by having the women of the evening— singers like Keri Hilson, Nicki Minaj, Paramore, Sugarland, and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals— perform for the troops. The ‘Divas Salute the Troops‘ concert filmed at the Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar on Friday, and had an estimated audience of 27,000 in attendance. This event partnered with the USO (United Service Organizations), a nonprofit whose goal is to lift the spirits of American troops and their families at military stations worldwide.
The host for the evening, funny gal and outspoken activist Kathy Griffin, sported a camo bikini and cracked jokes in between performances. The show aired last night on VH1, and opened and closed with a performance by Perry— twice that of anyone else in the lineup , which perhaps goes to show who’s the biggest ‘Diva’ of them all.
It’s great to see these women supporting our troops! You can watch Perry sing the boogie woogie here.
