If you needed any more proof that pink is the color of the season, and Katy is the girl of the year, it’s all right here in W Magazine. Katy Perry looks stunning (as usual) on the cover of W Magazine‘s November issue.
Labeled “America’s Biggest Export,” the doll-faced singer had a lot to share with the mag. She opened up about her religious values, her past, her current album and even which movies make her cry.
Check out some excerpts from the magazine and pictures from the photoshoot below.
On her hit single “Roar:”
“This song is about sticking up for yourself. People talk about bullying, but you can be your own bully in some ways. You can be the person who is standing in the way of your success, and that was the case for me. I was having a great professional streak, but personally, I was really immature, so I had to balance those things out.”
On being a beach girl:
“A little bit, but I left for L.A. when I was 17. Santa Barbara was boring to me back then. Now all I want to do is be bored in Santa Barbara, because it is a beautiful place! But when I was young, I felt a little trapped on an island—my family isn’t well-off, and it was kind of tough to be hanging out with the millionaire families that live there. I always made do—if I had five dollars, I’d go to the thrift stores on State Street and get my vintage cardigans and pencil skirts. Thank God for the body, because that ’40s look really worked on me.”
On being religious:
“I try and keep my connection with the G-O-D or with a power that’s bigger than me. It’s important—otherwise, you don’t have any kind of accountability. If you think, Hey, at the end of it all I am just going to be dust, or I have no soul or whatever, why not just be a menace to society? For me, accountability works.”
On her first hit controversial hit “I Kissed A Girl:”
“It was a bit radical to sing about bisexuality, but it was a topic that was on the tip of everybody’s tongue. And even though it was “I kissed a girl, and I liked it, and that’s what I like to do sometimes,” I sang it with a wink. It may be a fun little pop song, but sometimes fun little pop songs most clearly express the zeitgeist.”
On having any crushes:
“I actually am dating my crush. I had a crush on him for a long time, and it just so happens we fit together great.”
On what movies make her cry:
“The Notebook. And Titanic. And I always cry on planes. My boyfriend (John Mayer) and I call them “deprivation tubes:” You have a glass of wine, and you’re watching a movie, and then, wahhhh.”
Katy’s new album Prism is out today.
