Katy Perry really works that blue hair on the May cover of Teen Vogue. And hurrah for architectural shoulder pads! There’s also a lot going on with the interview, in which she opens up to the magazine about her life at the moment — “My life is crazy now. When you get to this level, there’s a lot that’s not real, but I really haven’t changed” — and more important, work. Katy also shares her current “spring” playlist with them, and it features the likes of Lana Del Rey, Robyn and Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx.
The songstress seems keen to discuss the release of her 3-D flick Katy Perry: Part of Me, saying, “One of my main reasons for doing this is that people think of me as though I’m Dorothy in the ruby slippers. I want them to see everything else that’s involved. Yes, I am her, but at the end of it all, I’m also the guy behind the curtain.” Delving deeper into why she made the movie, she added, “I wanted to document the tour, because when we started to book these really big venues, I felt like I was going all in. And I figured that by the end of it I’d be bankrupt or else I’d look like the smartest music businesswoman of my age, and I thought either outcome would be interesting. More than that, though, I wanted to show people this parade that surrounds me … I wanted them to see the engine.” She’s clearly not bankrupt, so she’s doing something right. With everything going on, it’s also imperative that she keep it together. “I hope so,” she says. “If not, I’m sure my sister and my brother and my best friends will kick my butt.”
