Katy Perry Covers L’Officiel Magazine’s Summer Issue

Posted on June 09, 2021

Katy Perry graces the cover of L’Officiel magazine’s summer issue, and in the interview, she opens up about her fiancé, Orlando Bloom, their daughter, Daisy, reflects on her career and life as a whole, and discusses her upcoming residency in Las Vegas.

 

 

 

 

“I have gone through a real journey in the past few years of having fun with costumes and lights and props and theatrics, but I have another life at home and it’s very small and normal. I don’t feel like I have to be ‘on’ anymore, and I think that’s because I’ve figured out both my professional and personal lives.” 

“I used to be really upset about going out into the world with no makeup on. I’d be like, ‘Let’s do some hair and makeup,’ and now I’m like, ‘You know, I’m good. I know who I am. And what you think of me is none of my business.’”

Daisy’s birth brought Perry a sense of wholeness, and helped heal deep-seated wounds that she’d developed over the years. “I always felt like I was walking around with a little bit of pain in my heart concerning love,” she says. “And my fiancé has done a great job at really helping to mend that. But this just went underneath all that and got so deep. It’s just there, that love is there.” 

“I’d heard about unconditional love, but now I’m really experiencing it. There’s a wholeness that has happened.”

It’s in this relationship with Bloom, and now their beautiful Daisy, that the honeymoon phase now feels unending. “I was able to witness him and his fatherhood,” she says. (Bloom has a 10-year-old son, Flynn, with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.) “The way that he showed up for him and continues to show up for him, and the efforts that he makes and the distance he goes, I think that’s one of the reasons I made that conscious decision. “I was like, ‘Here’s the father of my future children.’ I could see his kindness, empathy, care, and tenderness. I courted that. I was like, ‘Okay, this is different.’ And this is his first girl, so it’s a totally different feeling for him. I’m really, really grateful to have him. And he really shows up in a huge emotional way, which is unique for me.”

In many ways, Daisy allowed Perry to create without criticism, comparison, expectation, or fear of failure. “As a performer I’ve always relied on the love and acceptance and validation of the outside world and that ultimately can waver at times,” she admits. “When you have a child, you have someone who looks at you and doesn’t know anything on your resume, doesn’t know anything about your bank account, doesn’t know anything, doesn’t care, and just loves you. Unconditional love. It’s just…everything I think I was looking for.”
