Katy Perry Covers Entertainment Weekly, Talks Miley Cyrus & Lady Gaga
Katy Perry covers the new issue of Entertainment Weekly with the help of her backup dancers. I just can’t get enough of Katy Perry! I’m obsessed with pretty much every song she releases and I love the fact that she doesn’t take herself too serious, even though she’s one of the biggest pop stars ever.
In the new issue, Katy opens up about her boo John Mayer, her so called rivalry with Lady Gaga and what she thinks about Miley Cyrus.
On current boyfriend John Mayer, the inspiration for the Prism track “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 headline-grabber 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 perceived rivalry 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.”
