Katy Perry scored the December cover of Harper’s Bazaar. The newlywed star, who was spotted on her honeymoon with Russell Brand in the Maldives over the weekend, spoke to a writer from the magazine about her life as a pop star and the competition she gets from other singers.
Katy also shared about Russell, revealing her thoughts on how well they complement each other. She said:
On her husband, Russell: “I always knew I wanted a great man of God, someone who was going to be an inspiration for people and also be a lovely husband and father. We’re at different places in our lives, but we can still grow together. He’s thought-provoking, articulate, a real advocate. I also definitely wanted to have a laugh. I have all that in him.”
On her pop star competitors like Lady Gaga and Rihanna: “We’re all unique. That’s why we all win and we all can exist. People don’t want just vanilla. They want 31 flavors. I couldn’t do what Rihanna does. I couldn’t do what Gaga does. They can’t do what I do.”
On her image: “I’m kind of a good girl—and I’m not. I’m a good girl because I really believe in love, integrity, and respect. I’m a bad girl because I like to tease. I know that I have sex appeal in my deck of cards. But I like to get people thinking. That’s what the stories in my music do.”
Katy Perry was at Nordstrom for a pop-up event in New York City to promote her new fragrance “Purr by Katy Perry.” She wore a Zac Posen long sleeve purple dress with an asymmetrical hemline.
Love the Valeska statement necklace and I also loving her longer raven locks. This’s a very grown up look for Katy !
