The Daily Grind Video

Katy Perry may roar, but she has everyone else purring.

The Prism songstress graces the cover of Entertainment Weekly alongside some of her male dancers and yes ladies, the buff men are shirtless. But rocking a leather ensemble, a red lip and her million dollar smile, it’s Katy who’s the center of attention.

Not only did Ms. Perry lend the magazine her face, she also opened up about boyfriend John Mayer inspiring her song, dropped her opinions on Miley Cyrus, and spoke about her supposed beef with Lady Gaga.

Check out excerpts from the interview below.

On boyfriend John Mayer being inspiration for her song “Legendary Lovers:”

“I actually wrote it in an email one time, and after I wrote it I looked — we had a long courtship before anything was  [public], just writing letters to each other — and seeing ‘legendary lovers,’ it sounded so nice. Some things float into my mind, and I process them, and [then] I make songs about them.”

On controversial Miley Cyrus:

“She’s what, 19 or 20? She’s just living her life. She’s super young, and there’s no directing book on how to do this. Each of us find our own way, and some of us make it out alive and some of us don’t. I mean, Madonna was naked [too]. The thing is, people come to me and ask me, out of default, what I think about all these girls, but at the end of it all I shouldn’t be considered the behavior police, because I’m not always going to be on my best behavior!”

On her supposed beef with Lady Gaga:

“Gaga and I like to publicly dismiss it because it’s not healthy. You want to feel music. You want it to resonate and relate to you. You can’t look at it like a competition because you ruin the reason why you love music. But I think that sometimes our fan groups are so big and strong, they use it as ammunition.”

We still want you as our bestie, Katy!
