Katy Perry Covers 'Billboard' Magazine

Katy Perry Covers 'Billboard' Magazine

Katy Perry shows her flower power in an Asos dress as she graces the cover of Billboard‘s newest issue.

Here’s what the 25-year-old “California Gurls” singer had to share:

On her first single off her new record: “I’m not saying, ‘Oh, my God! ‘California Gurls’ is a f—ing genius opus!’ I just know what kind of card this summer needs, and that’s the one I’m playing.”

On not having to resort to scandalous stunts to get attention: “I’m not coming out trying to prove anything to anyone, like, ‘Oh, I’m in assless chaps!’ or ‘I can’t be tamed! I’ve already been through that phase. I started at 23, you know?”

On the inspiration for “Fireworks”: “Basically I have this very morbid idea…when I pass, I want to be put into a firework and shot across the sky over the Santa Barbara Ocean as my last hurrah. I want to be a firework, both living and dead. My boyfriend showed me a paragraph out of Jack Kerouac‘s book On the Road, about people that are buzzing and fizzing and full of life and never say a commonplace thing. They shoot across the sky like a firework and make people go, ‘Ahhh.’ I guess that making people go ‘ahhh’ is kind of like my motto.”

    “On not having to resort to scandalous stunts to get attention”

    ………LOL, hold up WTF? Isn’t that her entire package image? I thought she was aware of it.

  • blechhhhhhhhhhh

    She looks like an idiot and always ALWAYS comes across as a cu*nt.

  • rock n roll queen

    she sucks but that thing with the fireworks is actually a pretty good idea


    SO SICK of bit.chy female artists always bit.ching about each other to higher themselves. There is a reason people like Britney, Shakira, even Beyonce as robotic as she sometimes is, are liked, loved, adored, respected…………as people globally. Even Gaga and Rihanna who have to my knowledge never ressorted to badmouthing other artists are sweethearts no matter how rebellious they get. Karma will always come back to bite you in the as$, Katy & co.

  • Anthony

    What is up with this site!? Fix it!!!

    Anyway Hope she wasn’t taking a dig at Christina since she too was young in the good old ass chap days, and is far more talented then Katy. Not to mention Katy also goes for a certain look and gimmick when promoting her music.. I like Katy ( though mostly for her looks..) But I hate that CA girls song, I will blame the mindless radio listeners for that though. Hopefully this album also has some more meaningful songs, if you don’t want to get attention for stupid crap then put out some real music.

    Haaay katy my big boobs darilng come now

  • me
  • Dana

    She’s naked on her Cd cover and in her video.. Gets attention by putting down other artist..First Gaga then Miley now Christina.NOT BUYING HER CD.

  • Kate

    Thats very annoying. Its so dumb when other artists criticize other ones. It comes across as jealous and very disrespectful. She says she doesnt have to resort to stunts for attention. What a lie. Singing about kissing girls and liking it while you sing in lingerie, or how about being naked while laying on a cloud. Thats what I call attention. I also call wanting attention by badmouthing other artists more than once. I use to like Katy Perry …but now she comes across as dumb.

    Yeah Katy, but you need to talk shit about other artist’s works to get this attention. I was going to buy your album, but never mind, you’re so hypocrite that I’m not gonna help feed your ego.

  • stopit

    No, you didn’t wear assless chaps, you just kissed a girl. Glass houses……

  • In The Know

    Axl Rose is a rock star……..this trollop is a fame seeking jackass with a cute face, big t its , and almost no talent

  • U

    Such a CRAP singer ! lolzz… she doesn’t need attention while she is trying so hard to get attention… silly woman

  • brit

    she is pretty,but her songs are just stupid…i’m not a fan.

  • pascha

    “I’m not coming out trying to prove anything to anyone, like, ‘Oh, I’m in assless chaps!’ or ‘I can’t be tamed!’”

    Well then I wonder what Katy was trying to prove when she shot cream out of her tits in her video, posed naked for her album cover, and posed half naked for Esquire’s August cover wearing a necklace covered in crosses dangling between her cleavage?

    If Christina, Gaga or Miley did that would she consider those acts to be scandalous attention seeking stunts?

    Yet another case of Katy the empty-headed hypocritical kettle telling off her fellow ‘pop pots’.
