Katy Perry fronts Elle Canada for October 2013. The I Kissed A Girl vocalist is in the works with her upcoming album Prism. She rocks designer clothes by Prada and Dolce & Gabbana. She has been captured by Mariano Vivanco. She dishes out about learning from her past and her gal pal Rihanna.
On growing older:
“I’m 28, and I don’t know how young you are, but, as you must know, when you’re at the end of your 20s, it’s a very important growing time. It’s called the Saturn return, if you like astrology – I know it’s important to me. I think it’s a very important time, when you kind of let go of childish things and accept the wisdom that comes with age. That’s exactly where I am right now.”
On moving on from her struggles:
“I’ve always been a sponge; I’ve always had a desire to learn. I didn’t grow up with a real education, but now I am kind of educated by life.”
On learning to take a breather:
“I make sure to give myself a break. I had to find that balance. But I learned this thing called Transendental Meditation, which I do as much as I possibly can. It’s 20 minutes and you’re supposed to do it twice a day, but I only do it once every other day – but anyway, it works. People say you should work out 30 minutes a day – none of us works out 30 minutes a day!”
On her pal Rihanna:
“I think that Rihanna always looks so fresh and I’m like, ‘How do you do that? We all know how much pot you smoke! And you don’t sleep because you’re on Instagram at four o’clock in the morning! I’ll get her secret for you.”
