Katy Perry introduces her latest fragrance Killer Queen by Katy Perry ($59), just in time for fall. The new, strikingly gorgeous perfume captures Katy Perry’s rebellious spirit, throwing convention to the wind. Inspired by a queen’s scepter, the distinct jewel-shaped bottle in shades of royal red and gold portray sexy sophistication and lawless luxury. The faceted bottle rests languorously on its side, like a loose, precious gem fit for a Queen.

Seriously – look at the size of this box! It’s enormous! I took a picture of it in front of my head, showing how big the box is, but my son urged me to not share it. :) It’s huge!

I tore that bad boy open*, and I really enjoy the perfume! I like it – it’s different! The notes are Wild Berries and Red Velvet Flower. It’s a really great combo. I love it! I hadn’t smelled Katy’s last fragrance, so I don’t know how it compares to that….but this one, I love!

Here are some behind-the-scenes photo from the upcoming Killer Queen campaign! Can’t wait to see the rest of it! Katy is smokin hot!

Katy Perry lands the October cover of Elle Canada!

Katy Perry lands the October cover of Elle Canada, and in the magazine, she shares a bit too much information. Well, she reveals more information than I needed, I’ll just say that.

On getting older: “I’m 28, and I don’t know how young you are, but, as you must know, when you’re at the end of your 20s, it’s a very important growing time. It’s called the Saturn return, if you like astrology—I know it’s important for me. I think that it’s a very important time, when you kind of let go of childish things and accept the wisdom that comes with age,” she explains. “That’s exactly where I am now.”

On her evolution: “I’ve always been a sponge; I’ve always had a desire to learn,” she explains. “I didn’t grow up with a real education, but now I am kind of educated by life.”

On her inspirations: The kid who wasn’t allowed to listen to “secular” music has certainly broadened her tastes. She smiles when she tells me that she went to see Kinky Boots on Broadway the night before. “I loved it. I was surprised that I was emotional about it. The message is so powerful.” The musical is based on the true story of a shoemaker who teams up with a drag queen to save his family business. It’s fun and glitzy and boasts a score by Cyndi Lauper. At its core, though, the story is about the characters’ search for commonality and struggle to stand up to their parents. No wonder Perry loved it. Her rebellious streak may be why she says she’s so inspired by strong women like Joan of Arc. She puts it more simply, though. “I always like to go the unique road less travelled.”

TMI:
Then, while describing her preferred brand of vitamin C, she casually mentions that the only drawback is that it tastes like “a load and is disgusting.” She smiles, continuing on, and then stops dead and laughs. “I can’t believe I just said that! Strike the ‘load’ part!”

Her beauty routine: Before long, she has flicked her pumps onto the floor (“Yeah, I’m taking my shoes off!”) and dumped the contents of her makeup bag out on the coffee table. “There we go!” she says. “My bag of tricks!” It’s an unusually literal response to an admittedly rote line of questioning about her beauty regimen. “I make sure to give myself a break,” she says. “I had to find that balance. But I learned this thing called Transcendental Meditation, which I do as much as I possibly can. It’s 20 minutes and you’re supposed to do it twice a day, but I only do it once every other day—but anyway, it works.” She waves her hand dismissively. “People say you should work out 30 minutes a day—none of us works out 30 minutes a day!”

Calls Rihanna out for her pot smoking: She is equally frank about why she admires her famous friends. “I think that Rihanna always looks so fresh and I’m like, ‘How do you do that? We all know how much pot you smoke! And you don’t sleep because you’re on Instagram at four o’clock in the morning!’” she hoots with mock despair and then winks. “I’ll get her secret for you.”
