The music industry revolves around using sex appeal to sell songs and Katy stinks of sex appeal most of the time. However, this is the closest she has come to sounding sexy on a track.
For better or worse. Even though I like “Dressin’ Up” (putting the fact that it appears to have been written for shock value and penned by a horny teenager,) she doesn’t sound erotic or seductive on a track in which every line is a double entendre with the subtly of a sledgehammer to the face. Katy is to sexy songs what rape kits are to romantic evenings. Anyone turned on by “Dressin’ Up” would probably be brought to orgasm by a Sears catalogue. You could say that she pulls off the very few sexy songs she has done only because she looks like she could actually follow up on the requests, but she never really sounds convincing.
She's just very quirky but she did a good job of pulling sexy off in I Kissed A Girl and Dressin' Up. Those are very sexy.
It might be because she was raised a certain way. She's got sex appeal but she's too goofy to really pull it off live. It seems corny when she does it live. But in photographs she is the definition of sexy.
Dressin' Up is really sexy tho. But in general most pop rock girls just can't do sexy well.

What the hell are you talking about? You don't need to be vocally gifted or talented to sound sexy. I could list off plenty of popstars with sexy signature voices who coo to hell and back in their songs, but are by no means "talented" in the vocal department.
I mean I get it, you hate her, but at least make some damn sense.
