Celebrities tend to hide the parts that they don’t like about themselves for a number of reasons and while Katy Perry is rarely seen sans glam, the singer revealed that her upcoming 3D film ‘Katy Perry: Part Of Me’ has helped her to become more accepting of her own skin.
“There’s some scenes that I know people will screenshot and be like, ‘Oh, she looks like a fat cow with zits,’” she told MTV, “but I put those in there because that’s a part of me, that’s reality, and I’m OK with that now. It’s been a process of learning it’s OK, and I’m accepting of my own skin, but I think it’s important for young kids to see that you don’t have to be perfect in order to achieve your dreams, because I think that the world has this strange, skewed perception of successful people, that they’re just so perfectly made up, and they have all these possessions that make them who they are, and that’s not at all how I got here; I came from nothing, I didn’t have anything.”
She continued, “I just had a dream, and I worked very hard at achieving that dream.” “And that’s exactly what it takes; it takes a lot of hard work, a lot of sacrifice, a lot of focus, and hopefully that will open the door for you. But it’s not about being perfect.”
“There’s some backstory of how I got here, because a lot of people have heard about where I come from, but there’s actual footage,” she said. “The movie, when it opens up, it’s me at 18 talking about how I want all these things, like, all the things I have now and achieving my dreams.” “But then I’m kind of biting my lip going, ‘But then there’s all this responsibility.’ And then it cuts to me at the arena with thousands of people, essentially being a boss of sorts, a CEO, having to give out orders; it’s pretty crazy.”
Speaking about the difficulties of 2011 she said, “I felt 2011 would be an important year for me; you could feel it, like tremors of an earthquake. I didn’t know what I was going to catch, but I was going on this extreme tour, playing venues I never dreamed I’d play.” “I was either going to go bankrupt, have a breakdown or have the greatest success of my life; and I’m sure I did a lot of those things. But we caught all of it and put it together in a film.”
Oh Perry … you’re always such an inspiration ♥.
