Katy Perry in GQ February 2014: My Self-Empowerment Message Comes From An Au Natural Product
While rocking a few poses in a sexy OMO Norma Kamali swimsuit for the Peggy Sirota-shot front page, the "Firework" hitmaker opened up about everything from her "controversial" performance at the American Music Awards to her thoughts about plastic surgery.
Highlights from Miss Perry's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to GQ!
On her "Unconditionally" performance:
"I was thinking about unconditional love, and I was thinking: Geisha are basically, like, the masters of loving unconditionally. All I was trying to do is just give a very beautiful performance about a place that I have so much love for and find so much beauty in, and that was exactly where I was coming from, with no other thought besides it."
On her body:
"I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, 'God will you please let me have boobs so big that I can't see my feet when I'm laying down?' [At age 11], God answered my prayers. I had no clue would fall into my armpits eventually. I've never had any plastic surgery. Not a nose, not a chin, not a cheek, not a t**. So my messages of self-empowerment are truly coming from an au naturel product."
On her gigs before becoming famous:
"I'd go to the farmers' market in Santa Barbara, and I'd put out my guitar case, and I'd test out these little ditty songs that I would write, and I would get a couple of avocados, a bag of pistachios, and, like, fifteen bucks. That was a lot of money for me."
On her beliefs:
"I see everything through a spiritual lens. I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form? I mean if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I'm going to ask him that question. It just hasn't been appropriate. "
