Katy Perry covers the Jan 2020 issue of Vogue India and in it she talks about the mental, spiritual and emotional journey she’s been on the past few years.
It’s true, Perry’s bubblegum image doesn’t really spell suffering artiste. “I like to write songs that really move or empower people. If you divided my songs, they would be 50 per cent [about] empowerment, 25 per cent party and 25 per cent romantic. They are heavy on hope and positivity, like going towards the light. I reject the darkness.” […] “If you have a big spotlight and you’re sharing it for good, it’s going to be better for everyone,” says the pop star with a purpose, who, as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, has undertaken trips to impoverished parts of Vietnam and Madagascar to advocate for children’s education and clean water resources. “At 35, I’ve checked many boxes off my list and I’m now being challenged to dream new dreams,” she says. “I want to be involved in environmental companies, I want to go back to school [psychology and philosophy will be her subjects of choice] and I want to influence good people to run for office.”

“Fashion has never been more intertwined with reality than it is today. As we witness a seismic shift in values, culture and morality, we discover how these times have brought change to fashion. The climate crisis is the single greatest threat we face and it impacts, among other things, the way we dress and purchase. With the ensuing discussion on responsibility and sustainability, it’s time we ask what we want our clothes to say about us. This issue marks the birth of Vogue Values and reiterates what we stand for. Our larger-than-life cover star @KatyPerry conquers the streets of Mumbai in kaleidoscopic fashion. At home with her beau @OrlandoBloom, the global pop phenomenon follows a no-plastic policy; at work, she uses her platform to support Impossible Foods to provide meat substitutes in America. “These are small changes,” she says. “Not everything in my life is perfect. I’m still amending it every day to be more conscious about what I’m taking from Mother Earth and how I can give back,” she tells Vogue’s Features Director, @MeghaMahindru. In this issue are some of these small lessons we can all adopt to give back. Here’s wishing you all a mindful 2020!” – @Priya_Tanna, editor-in-chief, Vogue India Katy Perry in an embroidered patchwork coat made from recycled fabrics bound together with mirror work, leftover thread and tinsel.
