Katy’s on the cover of Teen Vogue! Let’s all put on records and dance in the basement and then go smoke Parliaments in the bathroom! Or whatever it is “teens” do these days when they’re excited. “Sext” each other, probably.

On fashion: ”I don’t like to take fashion too seriously. I love it, and I am so grateful when big brands want to associate with me, but mostly I just want to take chances and have fun and truly live. And sometimes that means wearing some ridiculous, cat-inspired outfit rather than whatever happens to be in this season.”
On fame: ”I’m tired of being famous already! But I’m not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do. It’s quite a delicate creature— it’s a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you. I still want to be as approachable and relatable as possible—when I meet fans and they’re crying, I’ll say, “Calm down, there’s nothing to cry about. I’m not going to bite you or attack you or grant you three wishes. Let’s just hang out and have a good time.” But really, I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago. If you try to be everything to everyone, you’ll only end up completely confused.”
We applaud her take on fashion (which is no surprise) and we get what she’s saying about fame but man, there is never a way for a famous person to talk about fame without sounding just a little tiresome. Them’s the breaks, Katy. Go cry on a bed made of mink bags full of money.
We’re on record as being quite over the blue hair but that’s due mainly to the sometimes-disappointing manner in which she has it styled. Put her in the hands of Vogue people and it comes alive. The shot of her in the Oscar de la Renta dress is pure perfection.
