Katy Perry is on top of the world these days. Perry covers the January 2014 issue of Marie Claire.
The singer is getting ready to go on tour, she’s been nominated for a couple of Grammys for ‘Roar” and she’s in love.
Check out some of her Marie Claire quotes!
On Russell Brand:
“There were two weeks of my life after I found out the truth of my marriage where I was like, ‘OK. All right. I can’t feel this. This is too intense right now.’ I was, like, just eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and drinking, and that’s it.”
On her relationship with John Mayer:
“He’s just a fantastic partner. I’ve been a fan of his for such a long time. He’s got a brilliant, brilliant mind. It’s a rad, mature relationship.”
On taking a break:
“I took a break from my boyfriend, not one that I wanted. It was like a splash of cold water to search inward on what was going on with me. That is what let me to this new awakening, this realizing, If I don’t do some self-love, I’m not going to be able to keep the love that I want. I still needed to deal with all of my ex-husband stuff. I hadn’t. It’s almost like if I kept talking about it, it would seem like I actually cared about it. I don’t.”
On her parents:
“People don’t understand that I have a great relationship with my parents – like, how that can exist. There isn’t any judgment. They don’t necessarily agree with everything I do, but I don’t necessarily agree with everything they do. They’re at peace with – they pray for me is what they do. They’re fascinated with the idea that they created someone who has this much attention on her. My parents are Republicans, and I’m not. They didn’t vote for Obama, but when I was asked to sign at the inauguration, they were like, ‘We can come.’ And I was like, ‘No, you can’t.’ They understood, but I was like, ‘How dare you?’ in a way.”
On having a family in the future:
“I’m definitely not there yet, and I can’t plan that far in advance. When I decide to have a family, I’ll just want to be Mom for a little bit. [Brand] really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn’t ready – I think it was a way of control. I think it was part of, If I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice – I’d have to be home more. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn’t ready for it. It wasn’t like, ‘Hey, let’s have a kid because we’re in love.”
Katy Perry is dressed in leather for this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly.
With a newly released album, Perry is busier than ever!
Perry chats with EW about Mayer, who inspired the track “Legendary Lovers,” her non-existent rivalry with Lady Gaga and her thoughts on Miley Cyrus.
On boyfriend John Mayer:
“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 fellow singer 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 “alleged” 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.”

It looks like Taylor Swift might take Lil Wayne‘s crown for most album copies sold in one week. Swift’s highly anticipate album has been flying off the shelves and even though the exact numbers aren’t in yet, Billboard.com projects that Speak Now could have the biggest release since 50 Cent’s Massacre album sold 1,141,000 units in March 2005.
The media, and Swift’s fans, have assumed that the motivation for this album has been her recent connections with John Mayer and Taylor Lautner.
Here’s what Swift had to say bout her album:
“It took two years to make this album, and at some point in the process, I made the conscious decision to write it by myself,” she said. “With this album, it’s been such an emotional process. I’d have nightmares in the middle of the night that Rolling Stone hated it. I was really nervous about it, because taking this on, you’re taking a lot of ownership of whether people like it or don’t.”
