Pop star Katy Perry takes centre stage as she covers the August issue of Rolling Stones Magazine, offering an inside peek at what’s going on inside her head. Making her third appearance on the cover of Rolling Stones and showing off her green hair, Katy speaks out about her performance during her Prismatic World Tour and defends her dancers.
After coming under the fire for what some considered cultural insensitivity with her stage dancers dressed as mummies during a performance, Perry offers a passionate defence of her intentions. “As far as the mummy thing, I based it on plastic surgery,” she says. “Look at someone like Kim Kardashian or Ice-T’s wife, Coco. Those girls aren’t African-American. But it’s actually a representation of our culture wanting to be plastic, and that’s why there’s bandages and it’s mummies. I thought that would really correlate well together… It came from an honest place. If there was any inkling of anything bad, then it wouldn’t be there, because I’m very sensitive to people.”
This wouldn’t be the first time the super stars costumes have caused controversy, where she was previously blasted for wearing a geisha-style getup on stage at the American Music Awards last year. “I guess I’ll just stick to baseball and hot dogs, and that’s it. I know that’s a quote that’s gonna come to f-k me in the ass, but can’t you appreciate a culture? I guess, like, everybody has to stay in their lane? I don’t know.” said Perry.
Katy Perry commented on the fact that she is not obsessed with her fans. “I’m not, like, a crazy ‘I’m gonna die for my fans’ type. Some people are so dramatic about it, and you’re like, ‘Honestly, you’re not the Second Coming. You’re just an entertainer!’… I’m very grateful for fans’ support, but I’m not thirsty or desperate.”
Katy Perry also opens up about her personal life, stating she she is happy being single. “I don’t need a dude,” she said in the interview. Her last relationship with John Mayer crumbled in March 2014, but even after saying she doesn’t need a “dude”, she listed the qualities she looks for in Mr. Right. “I tweeted the other day that I’m just looking for the prince that fits my glass Jordans slipper,” she added. The pop star talked about motherhood declaring she wants to be a parent when the time is right. “I want to be doing that in the right time. And that’s not in the next two years, you know? Maybe it’s in a five-year plan, but I need to really be able to focus 100 percent of my attention on it,” Perry noted. “I don’t really want to take the child on tour.”
