Hey Katy Perry, a few words of wisdom: Friends don’t go on the record about friend’s drug use!
“I think that Rihanna always looks so fresh,” she said of her friend. “And I’m like, ‘How do you do that? We know how much pot you smoke! And you don’t sleep because you’re on Instagram at four o’clock in the morning!’”
Katy has found her own way to make sure she’s fresh these days, like with transcendental meditation, which she explained that as much as she wants to do it twice a day, she often finds herself doing only once every other day.
Another aspect is accepting that freshness isn’t necessarily synonymous with her youthfulness. She explains that her age now—being in her late 20s—is essential for her personal growth and character development.
“I think that it’s a very important time, when you kind of let go of childish things and accept the wisdom that comes with age,” she explained to Elle Canada. “That’s exactly where I am now.”
Naturally, then, comes the reality that her fairy tale lifestyle may be over. Gone are her days as a bubble gum-themed pop princess; luckily, she’s transitioned into a new role pretty smoothly.
“I’ll be the jester to the princess,” she said with a laugh. “The comedic counterpart.”
