"I think about the outcome of all the situations, whatever kind of record I make, you know, this outcome can possibly happen but I haven’t made the record yet so I can’t prematurely talk about it. Although I hope that my audience will want to grow with me, of course. Teenage Dreams is like two years old and everybody has gotten a little bit older since that record came out and maybe their lives have changed, maybe they need more details, maybe they need the songs that I’m going to put out at that time. And also, I don’t think I can always be the Candy Queen, you know? That would get very annoying and boring. And I like to evolve and try new things and maybe not every record will always be this successful. I’m not going to try and duplicate what I’ve just done because I don’t know If I could do it again nor do I want to look like a fool trying to top myself at every turn. I have to get creative for the next one, I understand that. And i hope that people will continue to be on the journey with me."
- Katy in response to “You mentioned that the songs you’re writing are a little bit darker. Do you ever feel like you need to control your personal feelings so you don’t write something that completely alienates your audience?
"I don’t care what people say about my relationship; I don’t care what they say about my boobs. People are buying my songs; I have a sold-out tour. I’m getting incredible feedback from my music."
- Katy Perry
"There were times when what was going on in my personal life was so overwhelming that I had to bend over to let those tears fall straight out of my eyes and not my false lashes just as I’m about to go up on that ramp and sing ‘Teenage Dream’"
- Katy Perry
"I’m going to take a moment to re-assess everything and to create and to live and to experience, so the stories I tell on my third record are connected and honest"
- Katy Perry on what she’ll do after the tour is over
"I had to wear so many less layers of makeup. I had to make out with a boy which was very traumatizing, I was kind of mean to him. I would be the one to call cut because I was like, ‘oh I can’t do this!’ I feel so horrible. But I know it’s a job. [Russell and I] understand what our work is."
- Katy Perry (about the Teenage Dream music video)
"You can’t break my heart! Cos if you break my heart, you’ll break the world’s heart mother fucker!"
