Katy Perry: 'Nobody Relates to Being Perfect'

Katy Perry: 'Nobody Relates to Being Perfect'

Katy Perry shows her patriotic side on the cover of this weekend’s Parade.

Here’s what the 27-year-old pop star had to share:

On why she included her divorce in Katy Perry: Part of Me: “I think if people walked out of the theater and that was completely avoided, they would be like, ‘Well, there’s an elephant in the room that’s still there.’ I like to go out there looking like a strong woman, because I am strong. But I am also a woman who goes through all kinds of problems and highs and lows. I wanted to show the complete spectrum.”

On being honest in her concert film: “There are a lot of things that are personally uncomfortable to show, especially me without makeup and completely bloated or crying. But I’ve realized that it’s time for me to show my audience that you don’t have to be perfect to achieve your dreams. Because nobody relates to being perfect … I’m okay with having bad dance moves. I’m okay with having horrible lower teeth. That’s what makes me me, and for some reason it’s worked out all right.”

  • “Perfect”

    I doubt anyone ever thought you were perfect, Katy. Unnecessary to debunk that.

  • Eva

    Damnit! I wish some pop queen would make a movie about achieving your dreams when you have a 6th toe. That would just make me feel so much better about myself.

    Before all the haters arrive, I just wanna say that I personally really like Katy. She seems like a good person and I will continue to believe that until it’s proven otherwise. I admire her for sharing this side of her with her fans. I wish her nothing but the best.
