Pop star Katy Perry has revealed her weight during a recent magazine interview saying she is happy how she is because she used to be, in her words, fuller figured.
Katy says that she is fine with her current weight and that she is just glad not to be square shaped like she used to be, in an interview with Elle Magazine.
Frank as ever, Katy said: I was shaped like a square at one time. I was! I'm generally around 130 pounds, which is totally fine for me. But when I was a kid, I was the same height and weighed more like 145.
Katy Perry covers the March issue of Elle and in the interview she talks about her marriage, career and her fuller-figured past.
Here are a few excerpts of the interview with the magazine.
On her body:
I was shaped like a square at one time. I was! I'm generally around 130 pounds, which is totally fine for me. But when I was a kid, I was the same height and weighed more like 145. And I had enormous boobs that I didn't know what to do with, so I wore minimizers, which were not cute. Those thick-ass straps! I got made fun of for the over-the-shoulder boulder holder...and all I wanted was to look like Kate Moss. Little did I know...that these things would come in handy someday.
On her relationship with her husband, Russell Brand:
Everything clicked really fast. We kind of instantly got past all the surfacey stuff. And ever since then, there hasn't been a dull moment.
On how their relationship works:
We both needed balance, and we give that to each other. It wasn't about me taming him, which is what everyone always says - it was about timing.
On whether she's had any reservations about presenting a provocative image:
We're past that. I'm a sexy girl, so what? I never claimed I was a nun!
On balancing work and her personal life
I think you can have it all. You just have to work really hard, because great things don't come easily. Everyone's been told that marriage is hard work, and it is: You have to make time for the things you love.
I think some people will die on the stage, and I'm not so sure I want to do that. Like, I want to have kids! I'm totally fine with saying that. I think some people are scared because they're worried it's going to ruin their career, but I want to live a full life.
On her career:
I feel like I'm at a point in my life right now where I could potentially stick around. I don't feel like a diva, but I think diva is a great and powerful word in the sense of what Beyonce makes it. And maybe I can't be Beyonce, but maybe I can be Cyndi Lauper. I mean be like her, not be her. That would just be weird.
