Katy Perry: On the Hunt For a New Homestead
There’s no place like home, and Katy Perry was hot on the trail of her next new address in Beverly Hills on Saturday (June 14).
Dressed in a short plaid skirt and bright yellow top, the “Firework” female brought her family along for the excursion after having previously sold her 3 acre Hollywood Hills home that she owned with ex-husband Russell Brand.
Meanwhile, Katy has a plan for showing love to teachers all over the nation and she’s teaming up with Staples Inc for the “Make Roar Happen” campaign.
Perry told “Good Morning America,” “I'm an American girl that had a dream, executed a dream, came from nothing — and that really is the American dream. I'm happy to be that example and hopefully inspire other people to do that."
"I really believe knowledge is power, especially for females. I feel like our education makes us more confident. I thought, instead of shopping my way around the world, why not educate my way around the world?"
Staples honcho Alison Corcoran added, “‘Make Roar Happen’ builds on Staples’ commitment to teachers in a new and engaging way. With music that inspires people worldwide, Katy Perry is a powerful voice to encourage people to ‘Roar’ and recognize teachers for their impact both inside and outside the classroom. Our $1 million donation will help teachers supply their classrooms just in time for back to school.”
Katy chimed in, “I’m glad to partner with Staples on my Prismatic World Tour to raise awareness and funds for DonorsChoose.org, and to remind my fans that a small gesture can make a large impact on the very basic materials classrooms need for teachers to help students reach their full potential.”
