This weekend, Katy Perry sat down with NPR to talk about her new album, Prism. The conversation took an interesting turn, though, when the singer brought up the recent trend of popstars stripping down both on and off stage. (Erm, Lady Gaga, anyone?) According
to Katy, the whole trend has caused her to start to think of herself as an “inspiration” to young fans as a result.
“A lot of people see me as a role model but I’d like to kind of turn that around and say I appreciate that but I’d like to be seen as an inspiration. Because a role model, I think, will fail you,” Katy explained in the interview.
“I mean, I couldn’t tell kids when it’s time for them to try things or do things. I mean, that’s not my role. But, you know, it’s funny. I do see myself becoming this, whatever, inspiration out of default right now, ’cause it’s such a strange world. Like females in pop-everybody’s getting naked. I mean, I’ve been naked before but I don’t feel like I have to always get naked to be noticed.”
The NPR host then asked her if she was referring to anyone in particular; but Katy was quick to keep from starting any feuds. “I’m not talking about anyone in particular,” she continued. “I’m talking about all of them. I mean, it’s like everybody’s so naked. It’s like put it away. We know you’ve got it. I got it too.”
“I’ve taken it out here and there. And I’m not necessarily judging.
I’m just saying sometimes it’s nice to play that card but also it’s nice to play other cards. And I know I have that sexy card in my deck but I don’t always have to use that card.”
You tell ’em, Katy!
