KATY Perry is opening up!
In a new interview with Parade magazine, the Peacock hitmaker discussed a number of things, including why her divorce to Russell Brand needed to be acknowledged in her new 3-D concert documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me. She also reacts to Barack Obama‘s support of same-sex marriage and chats about her newoutlook on life.
Perry admits her breakup needed to be acknowledged in her film: “I think if people walked out of the theater and that was completely avoided, they would be like, ‘Well, there’s an elephant in the room that’s still there.’ I like to go out there looking like a strong woman, because I am strong. But I am also a woman who goes through all kinds of problems and highs and lows. I wanted to show the complete spectrum.”
On Perry’s reaction to President Obama’s support of same-sex marriage: “I was really happy; I probably went down to West Hollywood and had a shot. I came from a different mind-set growing up, and my mind has changed. My viewpoint on all these things—equality for women, the choice to love anyone you want—hopefully, we will look back at this moment and think like we do now concerning [other] civil rights issues. We’ll just shake our heads indisbelief, saying, ‘Thank God we’ve evolved.’ That would be my prayer for the future.” ‘
Perry realizes how fortunate she is to call the United States home: “Not to sound overly cheesy but I really appreciate the freedom we have in America — especially as a female.”
