Katy Perry Shines On Elle

Katy Perry’s purple locks are set off well by the pink background on this Elle cover, aren’t they? Katy refers to herself as the “candy queen” in her interview. “Candy queen” sums up her onstage persona perfectly! It’s also why I think the pink and purple is so appropriate. Here are some excerpts from Katy’s interview:

On relationships and marriage:
“I obviously have a lot to say right now…I’m a woman who likes to be courted – strongly. Never say never, I guess you’d say. I’ll let love take the lead on that.”

On her career:
“I love what I do, and when I don’t love what I do, I’ll make a change…I can’t be the candy queen forever.”

On being a role model:
“I have no regrets…I’m not going to be everything to everyone. I can’t tell a person when it’s time for them to have sex. Or if they should have a cigarette…But I try to live my life with a lot of integrity, and, hopefully, that sends a message.”

You can read Katy’s entire Elle interview (and see more pictures) in the September issue, which hits newsstands August 14th!
