On her empire: “I am proud of my position as a boss, as a person that runs my own company. I’m an entrepreneur… I don’t want to shy away from it. I actually want to kind of grab it by its balls.”

    Wow!! That actually surprises me because it doesn’t feel like we have heard any new music or anything really from Katy in a while. I guess her tour has been really successful! I think Katy’s songs are very catchy but performing live she does seem to struggle. Without all the costumes, makeup, dancers etc she is pretty basic and anyone could have really filled the cookie cutter pop star mould that she took on. Taylor is fast becoming the same too. It takes talent (singing, marketing and management) and hard work to actually make a career in Hollywood (since everyone has a rich dad and pushy stage mom). That’s were these two ladies excel compared to their competition. Sure Katy sings about partying and such but has she actually been caught drunk and stumbling out a club or doing drugs? No, she works hard and maintains her image. Same as Taylor Swift.
    I hope she doesn’t get complacent now that she’s super rich. Lots of pro athletes, musicians and actors get too comfy, arrogant and overconfident. They get fat and happy and don’t work as hard as they once did. I want Katy to keep on making really good albums. Hopefully, her love of music will inspire her to go all out and make her next album another grand slam home run like “Teenage Dream” was … with lots more Hot 100 #1 hits.

    Let’s be nice now. Katy IS the pop queen…that’s not even up for debate :) but now Taylor has become just as successful. I am thankful that Katy is getting some recognition, though. It’s about damn time. Thing with Katy is, she’s humble and does stuff under the table. Taylor posts all her “do-gooding” and successes to social media so none of it goes unnoticed. Who knows all Katy does and wins without ever getting recognition. So I’m glad she’s finally getting some :)
