Katy Perry Covers 'Rolling Stone,' Talks Blasphemy
Here’s what the 25-year-old Teenage Dream singer, who also posed topless and only wearing fishnets, had to share:
On her super religious and strict upbringing: “I wasn’t ever able to say I was ‘lucky,’ because my mother would rather us say that we were ‘blessed,’ and she also didn’t like that ‘lucky sounded like ‘Lucifer’.”
On thinking she’d gotten her shot at stardom at 17: “I was in Beverly Hills with my new Jetta, thinking that my album was about to come out, and I was so excited. Then nothing happened. It was like, ‘Wow, my car’s getting repossessed, I have no money, and I’m living on Cahuenga, under the Hollywood sign.”
On her thoughts on blasphemy: “I wrote that tweet because of a combination of things. I am sensitive to Russell taking the Lord’s name in vain and to Lady Gaga putting a rosary in her mouth. I think when you put sex and spirituality in the same bottle and shake it up, bad things happen. Yes, I said I kissed a girl. But I didn’t say I kissed a girl while f-ing a crucifix.”
