Katy Perry might come off as saucy to some.
It seems like Kim Kardashian isn’t the only one who knows how to throw a shade at someone. Katy Perry proves she’s in the game as she dished on her rather controversial play up of big-bootied mummies on her tour.
Katy Perry grants Rolling Stone a no-holds-barred interview on her decision to use them especially as society doesn’t exactly frown at plastic surgery. She also takes a dig at lady Gaga (well, sort of) when she stated she isn’t desperate over any fan. She’s happy she’s got them but she wouldn’t put them first. Lady Gaga sometime ago spoke about putting her admirers first.
In more topics, she insinuated she wouldn’t be needing a man if he didn’t present himself. Was she legalising being gay then?
Read excerpts from the main interview:
After coming under fire for alleged cultural insensitivity (largely for having big-bootied mummies dance in her tour and dressing up as a geisha at the American Music Awards), Perry offers a passionate defence of her intentions.
“As far as the mummy thing, I based it on plastic surgery,” she says. “Look at someone like Kim Kardashian or Ice-T’s wife, Coco. Those girls aren’t African-American. But it’s actually a representation of our culture wanting to be plastic, and that’s why there’s bandages and it’s mummies. I thought that would really correlate well together… It came from an honest place. If there was any inkling of anything bad, then it wouldn’t be there, because I’m very sensitive to people.”
She knows the rules are changing, that “cultural appropriation” is increasingly uncool, but she’s not thrilled about it. “I guess I’ll just stick to baseball and hot dogs, and that’s it,” she says. “I know that’s a quote that’s gonna come to fuck me in the ass, but can’t you appreciate a culture? I guess, like, everybody has to stay in their lane? I don’t know.”Katy Perry
Perry would like to have a baby someday – and she doesn’t “need a dude” for that.
“I want to be doing that in the right time,” she says. “And that’s not in the next two years, you know? Maybe it’s in a five-year plan, but I need to really be able to focus 100 percent of my attention on it. I don’t really want to take the child on tour. Not until, like, birth through five is over.” And there doesn’t necessarily have to be a man in the picture, she adds, mentioning her friends Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. “I don’t need a dude. I mean, Neil and David, their twins are beautiful. It’s 2014! We are living in the future; we don’t need anything. I don’t think I’ll have to, but we’ll see. I’m not anti-men. I love men. But there is an option if someone doesn’t present himself.”Katy Perry
About the fans.
“I’m not, like, a crazy ‘I’m gonna die for my fans’ type,” Katy Perry says in her new Rolling Stone cover story, which hits stands on Friday. “Some people are so dramatic about it, and you’re like, ‘Honestly, you’re not the Second Coming. You’re just an entertainer!’… I’m very grateful for fans’ support, but I’m not thirsty or desperate.” But Perry is the most consistent hitmaker of the last half-decade or so, and in her third appearance on the cover of Rolling Stone (photographed by Peggy Sirota), she offers a generous peek at what’s going on inside her head.Katy Perry
