V Magazine has revealed its Summer 2014 issue to US Weekly, featuring cover girls Madonna and Katy Perry. “Birthday” singer Perry previewed the new spread via Instagram on Monday, May 19. “Mmmmm my baby’s got a secret,” she wrote, alongside a pic of herself crawling on a floor and reaching for a mysterious figure’s stiletto.
On the racy cover, Perry mounts Madonna with her legs spread open from behind. The pop singers are both in leather outfits as they pose for photographer Steven Klein. According to Madonna, wild images like these are for the sake of art.
Perry said she has yet to pull a Miley Cyrus, referring to the Bangerz music video. “I haven’t gone that far yet,” Perry told VMag, while adding to Madonna, “but maybe under your great mentorship I might reach that point.”
The stars are in the magazine’s accompanying spread. In a separate exclusive preview pic from the shoot, Perry wears a corseted dress and sultry black leggings. The “Dark Horse” singer holds a rope binding Madonna’s hands, while the queen of pop is splayed across a leather couch.
