She confessed, “I don’t like to take fashion too seriously. I love it, and I am so grateful when big brands want to associate with me, but mostly I just want to take chances and have fun and truly live. And sometimes that means wearing some ridiculous, cat-inspired outfit rather than whatever happens to be in this season.”
Perry names Agyness Deyn, Chloe Sevigny, Daphne Guinness, and Wonder Woman – as the people who inspire her fashion-wise.
On fame – she’s not that crazy about it.
“I’m tired of being famous already! But I’m not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do. It’s quite a delicate creature— it’s a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you.”
She admits that Madonna’s Truth Or Dare documentary inspired The Part Of Me: 3D Concert Movie – set to be released in July.
Perry shares, “Madonna is everything to me, and that movie is amazing, because it caught her at a time when she was a bit more vulnerable. I wanted to do that too, to capture a snapshot of who I am now so that I can remind myself what I’ve lost if I ever do become totally jaded.”
She added, “When we started to book these really big venues, I felt like I was going all in. And I figured that by the end of it, I’d be bankrupt, or else I’d look like the smartest music businesswoman of my age, and I thought either outcome would be interesting.”
