Katy Perry talked to POPSUGAR about the music video for Pokemon collaboration “Electric,” advice she’d give her younger self, and the input and support she gets from family and friends.

The music video for “Electric” draws from Perry’s experience as a teenager starting off in the music industry. When Perry reflects on that time in her life, she feels like she did “a really good job.” She said, “I have no regrets. I stumbled, I fell, I made mistakes. I learned from all of it. But I was pretty boy crazy. I think I was always searching for real love and true love.” But if she had to give her younger self some advice, she’d “lose some time to be emotional about the boys,” although “it did fuel the songs.”


erry gets the input and support of family at home, and she also has a few famous friends who keep her uplifted in the industry. “Dua Lipa has always been so kind, and she always congratulated me, especially when I had the baby. And Ellie Goulding just had her baby, and we’ve sent some photos back and forth,” Perry recalled. “Sia has been a rock at times in the past, when I was really going through it. And Ariana Grande, her and I will see each other and catch up, and I’ve got so much love for her. I think she’s just got the best voice in the music industry. I think there’s a lot of females that are more interconnected these days, which is great.”
