Katy Perry is focusing on her personal life.
“I’m preparing to do a big soul overhaul very soon that I’m nervous about,” she revealed to Glamour magazine. “I want to emotionally elevate myself. I don’t want to hold on to childhood trauma anymore. I want to grow into becoming an adult. I’m preparing myself for having a family of my own someday. And that’s the thing: I want to do a little bit more soul surgery before I have a family of my own so that I don’t transfer any of those lingering feelings.”
“I’m about to go heavy into that emotional process, and I’m nervous, but I don’t think I have a choice anymore. This last year has been about killing my ego, which has been really necessary for my career. But for my personal life, it doesn’t work that way. If I want to have that true balance, I have to step into being Katheryn Hudson.”
“I would say that all of my best songs, or what I think are some of my better songs — ‘By the Grace of God,’ ‘Roar,’ ‘Firework’ — are basically motivational pep talks to myself,” she said. “They’re my soul speaking to me, saying, ‘Come on. We can do this. One foot in front of the other.'”
Looking forward to seeing Katy on American Idol on ABC premiering March 11th!
