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.”
