“A lot of wonderful things happened that influenced my songs — positive things happened. The songs became more joyful, hopeful, more full of love, more full of colour and life. They became very prismatic. That’s why I named my album Prism: I let that light in and now I get to beam it out.”
I’ve said it in the past, and I’ll say it again: I’m just a singer/songwriter masquerading as a pop star. The glitter costumes and the bells and whistles are really just for fun. I love all that stuff, but that’s not where I started. That’s just the extra.
I never want to be just one thing. I want to be multidimensional.
Unconditional love sometimes feels like being hit by a car or being on fire.
For a minute I thought maybe I was going to do a dark record,
but then I let the light in.
"For a minute I thought ‘OK, maybe I was going to do a dark record, but then I let the light in, and thats what a Prism does.”
—Katy Perry on ELLE Canada
“I can’t be the candy queen forever.”
"I can’t just be the girl who sang I Kissed a Girl. I have to leave a legacy.”
“I’m not in a relationship, I’m just on my own—I am myself in my own bed. I have to be happy being alone, and I am happy. I believe that I will be loved again, in the right way. I know I’m worth it." - Katy Perry for Vogue - 2013
The past is like a handful of dust. It filters through your fingers, disappearing little by little. I wish for one day that I could go back. In another life, I would do things differently.
