Katy Perry, singer of such hits as ‘Firework’ and ‘I Kissed a Girl’, is on the cover of the June issue of Vanity Fair magazine and looks undeniably sexy. Inside she discusses life with Russell Brand, religion and the magic of artichokes.“My career is like an artichoke,” says the stunning singer, adding “People might think that the leaves are tasty and buttered up and delicious, and they don’t even know that there’s something magical hidden at the base of it”.
Moving onto her religious childhood, Perry reveals “I didn’t have a childhood. [I wasn't read any books] except the Bible, and [I wasn't] allowed to say ‘deviled eggs’ or ‘Dirt Devil’.” And what of her parents influence? “I think sometimes when children grow up, their parents grow up. Mine grew up with me. We coexist. I don’t try to change them anymore, and I don’t think they try to change me. We agree to disagree” she explained.
Katy also talks about the picture of her without makeup on, which hubby Russell Brand was kind enough to tweet. “I didn’t really care. I mean, when I go to rehearsals I look like that. I’m every woman. It takes a village to make me who I am…. You don’t have to wake up looking like, you know, Gisele” says Perry. The June issue of Vanity Fair will be available in the UK on Tuesday May 10th.
