Everybody’s favorite California Gurl is rocking the cover of Elle magazine’s September issue. Katy Perry is pretty on pink on the cover but goes for a darker look inside. We’ve got a pretty sweet photo of the pop princess inside, along with the cover, and the rest we’ll get to see when the magazine hits the stands on August 14. Check out the photos and a few excerpts from the interview inside!
Love, love, love the black-and-white shot! Gonna need that dress. Stat. Here are a few excerpts from the interview:
On relationships and marriage: “I obviously have a lot to say right now…I’m a woman who likes to be courted–strongly. Never say never, I guess you’d say. I’ll let love take the lead on that.”
On her career: “I love what I do, and when I don’t love what I do, I’ll make a change…I can’t be the candy queen forever.”
On being a role model: “I have no regrets…I’m not going to be everything to everyone. I can’t tell a person when it’s time for them to have sex. Or if they should have a cigarette…But I try to live my life with a lot of integrity, and, hopefully, that sends a message.”
Katy is pretty adorbs and I read that she was listening to Kanye‘s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and eating jelly beans during the photo shoot. My kinda girl ;)
