Katy Perry Covers 'Elle' March 2011

Katy Perry Covers 'Elle' March 2011

Katy Perry adds a splash of color on the cover of Elle‘s March issue, on newsstands February 15.

Here’s what the 26-year-old pop star had to share with the mag:

On life before fame: “I had two cars repossessed, and I was writing bad checks, but I gave myself a timeline. I thought, Okay, if I don’t make it by 25, I’m just going to get married and pop out some babies and do some crafts.”

On her much talked about figure: “I was shaped like a square at one time. I was! I’m generally around 130 pounds, which is totally fine for me. But when I was a kid, I was the same height and weighed more like 145. And I had enormous boobs that I didn’t know what to do with, so I wore minimizers, which were not cute. Those thick-ass straps! I got made fun of for the over-the-shoulder boulder holder, and all I wanted was to look like Kate Moss. Little did I know that these things would come in handy someday.”

On her relationship with husband, Russell Brand: “Everything clicked really fast. We kind of instantly got past all the surfacey stuff. And ever since then, there hasn’t been a dull moment.”

On how their relationship works: “We both needed balance, and we give that to each other. It wasn’t about me taming him, which is what everyone always says—it was about timing.”

FYI: Katy is wearing a silk jacket, satin shirt, satin pants, and a python belt from Gucci, a soutache bra from La Perla Jean Paul Gaultier Collection Createur, and rose gold earrings from Van Cleef & Arpels. Her curls were done by celeb hairstylist Harry Josh.

  • mailey

    i like her outfit.
    but she’s ugly.

  • Helen

    I think she would look better if she lost 10 lbs in real life, and not just in photoshop.

  • bb

    She’s pretty, but ugly outfit.

  • Maggie

    She looks like Emily Blunt here, not like Katy Perry, way too much photoshop. And I didn’t read any of the print above, so if her outfit is meant to look like the joker’s, they did a great job..

  • Zoz

    She means all her bra padding came in handy. She doesn’t have big boobs …just lots of padding. I like the outfit, but she’s an idiot and homely looking.

  • Weber from Brazil

    Love the outfit
    When I first saw this photo I thought it was Emily Blunt ‘-’

  • Lilakoi Moon

    Soon we’ll hear she and Brand are getting a divorce…. MARK MY WORDS!!

  • Elena

    I understand that she is bit overexposed, taletless and to some with a shitty personality, and all of that create a lot of hate over her
    But like it or not she is pretty and hott so all the girls who say that she is ugly are just jealous , who loooved to looked a little bit like that
    this might not be her best cover but said that she is ugly that is a little unfair

  • Zoz

    Why is it that just cause someone can get their ugly mug on some mag cover they are considered pretty. She has thin lips, a pointy nose…very ugly nose, and weak facial structure. She is the epitome of average. Guess what…there are billions of good looking women in the world and millions of stunning ones. Perry is average…stop trying to make this hack something she’s not. We have all seen her without make-up. Pretty is Eva Mendes….Shakira….get a clue.

  • sama

    they photoshopped about 20lbs off her and she’s not a fat girl to begin with…

  • Luella

    I have seen pictures of Katy when she was in highschool. Her boobs were normal. Whoever teased her must have been on drugs. Or she’s lying. They are pretty normal now. I wish she would stop saying crap like that because I personally know girls who are really top heavy and it’s really horrible for them to hear this over and over in media. It makes them feel like total freaks. They get harassed by jerks and it physically really hurts. A few of my friends got an eating disorder because they couldn’t exercise away their boobs. You can see the stuffing in Katy’s bra all the time. She has to stop misrepresenting that she’s huge. Oh and she did get married when she was 25, right on schedule. Getting married and having children is not giving up on life. It’s not failure. She is so arrogant and ignorant. She should stop judging other women’s life choices. It’s such bad karma to say things like that.

  • Down with dog killer Vick!

    She is just average looking. Her voice is just okay. She must have slept with a lot of old men in the business that kept their promise to make her a “star.”

  • alex

    Never saw an interview where she didn’t talk about her privates what a loser

  • Trollin’

    Well at least she’s covered up, so that’s nice.

  • Trollin’

    lol when people say all the haters saying her ugly are ‘jealous’. Why would anyone be jealous of her?(maybe some, but not ALL) She’s pretty but not worth jealous of.
