Pop singer Katy Perry covers the May 2012 issue of Teen Vogue and she’s still rocking the blue hair color. It fits right in with the blue outfits that the magazine dressed her in for the shoot, doesn’t it?
In this issue, she talks about her music, acting and of course, fame. With regard to her music, she said that her label is happy that she’s on her seventh number one hit. She said, “But for me, I don’t need to grind it into anyone’s head that I’m popular. If you like my music, great, and if you don’t, whatever. I’m going to keep making it either way.”
On the topic of acting, she revealed, “There was a time when I was going to be involved in The Help — just a small part, I wasn’t going to be Emma Stone or anything – but I couldn’t because the shooting schedule conflicted with the release of my record. And I was upset about that; I knew it was going to be an important film. Not that I need to do drama first, but I do want to do something that makes a strong impression. You don’t really get off the hook being a musician first…I feel like the stakes are really high.”
My favorite part of the interview is when Katy talks about being famous and she doesn’t seem to be happy with her current celebrity status. She told the magazine, “I’m tired of being famous already! But I’m not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do. It’s quite a delicate creature — it’s a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you.”
She added, “I still want to be as approachable and relatable as possible – when I meet fans and they’re crying, I’ll say, ‘Calm down, there’s nothing to cry about. I’m not going to bite you or attack you or grant you three wishes. Let’s just hang out and have a good time.’ But really, I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago. If you try to be everything to everyone, you’ll only end up completely confused.”
