Katy Perry Graces The Cover Of Vogue & Talks About Saving ‘Broken Birds’ & Being An ‘Emotional Widow’


1371562887000-Katy-perry-Vogue-1306180947_3_4_r537_c0-0-534-712Hot tamale Katy Perry has made another career first by landing her first cover for globally- recognised fashion magazine ‘Vogue.’ The fun singer was interviewed in several locations for the feature, (the pictures that accompany the interview show a very stripped down version of her usual self), including the San Ysidro Ranch, Lotusland and La Super-Rica, where she spoke in depth about her fixation with saving ‘broken birds’, and how she views herself as an emotional widow:

She spoke a little about a her music writing on the go, confirming that she carried around a little dictaphone for any random moments of inspiration. She played a ‘little experiment’, and said: “This is like its rawest form, and I titled it ‘Bad Photographs’ because the idea is that when people are in a relationship they only take photographs when they are happy, and sometimes when it ends you realize maybe it would be important to take photographs when it’s not happy. So I have this idea-Looking back we should have taken photographs . . . of all the unhappiness . . . coz now my mind’s playing tricks on me. . . . I forget we are not meant to be. . . .”  You know what I am saying? So I put it in this song last night. That’s how I write a song.”

On her ex husband Russell Brand, she dished: “He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011. He’s hysterical in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows. So. Hysterical to a point. I mean, I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie. That wasn’t edited to leave footage out—there wasn’t any footage of him. At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness. He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting. I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day. I let go and I was like: This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that.”

On her most recent love John Mayer, who she played the journalist in her car a song based upon him, she sighed: “No, I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him.. All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind. Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds. I hope I don’t have to live as a widow. An emotional widow. No, I don’t believe that. But I think that I can just right now focus on me and strengthening myself and my emotional support system. I’m not in a relationship, I’m just on my own—I am myself in my own bed. I have to be happy being alone, and I am happy. I believe that I will be loved again, in the right way. I know I’m worth it.” You most certainly are honey…
