Katy Perry opens up about her adoration of Beyonce and what she thinks of Taylor Swift in an interview for ELLE’s March 2015 issue that will be out on Feb 17. ELLE’s Amanda FitzSimons has all the nicest words for Perry – an eloquent talker, intensely likeable and unfiltered among others.
“Oh my God. I’m such a big Beyonce fan,” Perry gushed before going about how Queen Bey is just out with a new video.
“Finally I see you [Beyonce]. I don’t see some propaganda version of you. I see you. I relate to who you are,” Perry told ELLE.
She then talked about Adele whom she found real and as someone who just shrugs fame away. Perry shared that Adele had even stole her burrito after a show at the Hammersmith Apollo in England. She then mimicked Adele’s Heavy British accent, showing ELLE how Adele asked her ‘how the fuck’ she get a burrito in England.
Asked to imagine if all pop stars were characters in a soap opera, she said everybody has a role to take – including a villain, a princess, the mom, and the dad. She said the media is using such labels to name who among the pop stars is the villain or the sweetheart.
“You know. Taylor’s the sweetheart. Kanye’s the villain. That’s the narrative,” she said.
Perry described the pop-star status as something hundred times harder than a childhood dream.
“You think you signed up for one thing, but you automatically signed up for a hundred others,” she said.
Perry was the headline just recently because of her roar-worthy Super Bowl Half Time performance. As it turned out, her performance should not be the only cause of uproar. Her opening dress should also make it to the headlines as it cost as much as $15,000 to $20,000 – a price tag that made it convenient for her to take off within 20 seconds to change into another costume. The same price tag of another $15,000 made her silver star gown handy to change into within 45 seconds.
“We were both ambitious,” Perry’s friend and fashion designer Jeremy Scott told ABC News.
