Katy Perry lands the cover of the February issue of GQ magazine, looking smoking hot.
In the coverstory, shot by Peggy Sirota, the pop star talks about her breasts coming in as a young girl, when she first realized she could make a career out of singing, and President Obama.
Below are excerpts. For more, visit GQ.com.
On her breasts: “I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, ‘God, will you please let me have breasts so big that I can’t see my feet when I’m lying down?’ At age 11, God answered my prayers,” she says, glancing south. “I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually.”
On discovering singing could be a career: “I’d go to the farmers’ market in Santa Barbara, and I’d put out my guitar case, and I’d test out these little ditty songs that I would write, and I would get a couple of avocados, a bag of pistachios, and, like, fifteen bucks. That was a lot of money for me.”
On President Obama and astrology: “I see everything through a spiritual lens,” she says. “I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form? I mean, if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I’m going to ask him that question. It just hasn’t been appropriate yet. I might have won Wisconsin for him,” she says. “Actually, I didn’t do too much, but he called on me a couple of times. Which was very nice.”
