Katy Perry was candid and vocal about a lot of things while Down Under and appearing on ‘Sunrise,’ a breakfast TV show in Australia.
Looking retro cute with her bangs-and-bob ‘do, the singer showed no signs of sadness over the John Mayer split. She also sorta threw shade at Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears. You decide if she was dissing her fellow divas. She also steered clear of the relationship question.
When asked about Mimi, Perry said, “Well, she’s fabulous for a throwback.” Hmm. While she spoke about loving Mimi’s classic catalog, that didn’t sound like a compliment.
She also addressed that makeout sesh with Miley, proving what we all saw. Perry was game for an innocent girl kiss, but Miley tried slip her the tongue.
Perry said, “She tried to move her head and go deeper and I pulled away; God knows where that tongue has been.” Okay, so that sounded more like a joke than shade, right?
The singer lauded Brit Brit for “having a comeback” but she wasn’t overly lovey dovey.
She also called Lorde “mature” and an “old sage of sorts” and said she loves the New Zealand singer, HAIM, Ellie Goulding and Banks. When she was called the biggest female artist working today, Perry denied it, saying that honor goes to Beyonce.
At the 16-minute mark, she is asked if she has a boyfriend by fans, which she sidestepped. “If I have a boyfriend? All of my fans are my boyfriends. This is my boyfriend,” she said, leaning in for a kiss with the koala. Well-played, Katy.
Perry also hung out with some local wildlife, petting a koala and a croc with its mouth taped. She declined to pet a snake.
The interview is 20 minutes but it’s rich with silly, goofy, cute Katy fun.
