Regardless of format, the best celebrity interviews are always the ones in which the subject is willing to take off the gloves and be candid. Last week, Bill Murray proved that with his frank and wonderful Ask Me Anything session, and now, Katy Perry has proven it with a no-holds barred chat with GQ that touches on aliens and more importantly, her boobs.
Speaking to the magazine, Perry admits she dreamed of having very large boobs when she was a little girl, so much so that she once sat in her bed and prayed to God to grant her wish.
“I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, ‘God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can’t see my feet when I’m lying down?’ God answered my prayers. I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually.”
Perry has used those glorious boobs to attract attention on more than a few occasions, but the key to her pesona is she never relied on them so much they overwhelmed her personality. We expect weird nudity from Lady Gaga and extremely sexual behavior from Miley Cyrus, but when it comes to Perry, she’s a wild card that’s sometimes sexual, sometimes fun, sometimes sporty, sometimes goofy and typically endearing.
Just because I know you’re dying to know, here’s the aforementioned aliens quote…
“I see everything through a spiritual lens. I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form? I mean, if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I’m going to ask him that question. It just hasn’t been appropriate yet.”
This quote is begging to be explained further. On the one hand, if she’s trying to say, somewhere in the universe there’s intelligent life, I agree wholeheartedly. The chances of there not being life somewhere else are miniscule. On the other hand, however, if she’s implying aliens have landed on Earth and President Obama is somehow privy to that information, well, that’s not the best opinion I’ve ever heard.
