Earlier this week, the preview of Katy Perry’s cover for ‘Interview’ magazine was released and now we’ve got the full spread. Similar to the cover, Perry looks nothing like she usually does and the newly released photos show the ‘Part Of Me’ singer in a much more vintage state.
Katy sat down with Kristen Wiig for a rather interesting interview. She discussed how her fame impacted her relationship with her family and what it’s like to be surrounded by the media:” I don’t really ever tolerate it— especially when it comes to my personal life or my family. When I’m working, I’m all yours. But when I’m not working, stay the f— away. That’s how it goes. So whoever made up the idea that everyone has the right to every bit of information about you because you’re famous . . . No one made that rule. It’s not a law, and if you think it is, then you don’t really understand how the world works.”
She also revealed that she has a strangely close relationship with her parents: “My whole thing is to agree to disagree and to have respect because nothing can really be changed and you wouldn’t want to ruin their happiness — even if that happiness is ignorance. But as far as the dynamic between us? It has absolutely changed. It’s bound to change with anyone, really. Well, not with anyone, because for some people it doesn’t ever change. But eventually our parents get to a certain age where they let go of the reins and they see that you’re responsible, that you’re okay, and maybe they’re finally relieved in some ways. Then they get older, so you take care of them. That’s kind of what I think the responsibility is — even if you’re not successful.”
She continued saying, “But, you know, for me, with my whole thing … I think they just see that the dynamic has changed because I’m in a different place. But it’s not like I disrespect them in any way. I mean, I take care of them. But that’s what I’ve always wanted: to have enough that I could make sure that everyone in my family had enough. I grew up not really having anything, so the idea that I can take care of my family and my friends now is a really cool bonus.”
The 27 year old also dished on her next album. ‘Well, my music is about get real *******dark. I’ll be shoe-gazing. You’ll never see my face because my hair is in my face.”
“Kids are so smart these days . . . When they see something that’s being marketed to them, they’ll call it out,” Perry said. “They’ll be, like,’This chick is bulls–t.’” “I think it would be pretty stupid to try and redo this last record that had all of this success,” she said. “Maybe it’s time to do something different that can’t be compared.”
