Katy Perry on her fashion choices: “I just want to take chances and have fun and truly live”

Katy Perry is Teen Vogue’s May cover girl. In the interview, Katy opens up about her new #1 hit “Part of Me”. She’s still sticking to the story that it’s not about Russell Brand, but I’m not buying it for a second.

She also talks about acting – and she reveals she was almost in ‘The Help’. Thank the Lord that didn’t happen! What a mess!

Here’s more:

Was she excited about her 7th #1? “Of course! I’m not like, “Ugh, number one again.” It’s funny, though–my label gets so caught up in the statistics, just because they’re excited. But for me, I don’t need to grind it into anyone’s head that I’m popular. If you like my music, great, and if you don’t, whatever. I’m going to keep making it either way. This does feel a bit like the record that never ends. But I wanted to release The Complete Confection for the hard-core fan who wants everything: three new songs, the remixes, and it’s all in a cute little package.”

On acting: “There was a time when I was going to be involved in The Help–just a small part, I wasn’t going to be Emma Stone or anything–but I couldn’t because the shooting schedule conflicted with the release of my record. And I was upset about that; I knew it was going to be an important film. Not that I need to do drama first, but I do want to do something that makes a strong impression. You don’t really get off the hook being a musician first … I feel like the stakes are really high.”

On glamour: “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.”

Her style influences: “I love Agyness Deyn, Chloë Sevigny, Daphne Guinness, Natalie Wood, Judy Jetson, and Wonder Woman. They have the ability to adapt and evolve and change. Like, I’m still doing the pinup thing, but now when I do it, I want to be the pinup of the future, like Rachael in Blade Runner. But I’ve always been quirky–it probably started when I was nine years old, and my father used to wake me up at seven every Saturday morning to take me to garage sales. I couldn’t afford the clothes that the other girls at school were wearing, so instead I looked for things that were unique to me.”

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.”

I kind of love the statement she made about fame: “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.”

I love her look in these pictures. Even with the blue hair, she really is spectacularly beautiful!

The adorable Zooey Deschanel lands the May cover of Marie Claire!

I love Zooey, always have. ‘500 Days of Summer’ is one of my favorite movies of all time. I can’t watch her TV show ‘New Girl’, because honestly, I just find it incredibly annoying. I will be honest, I only watched the first 3 episodes, and I do hear they got better after that. I just don’t find myself caring too much.

Anyhoo, the interview wasn’t all that great (at least what they posted online). Only a few quotes to pull. Here they are!

How the success of her Fox series “New Girl” has changed her life:

“It’s harder to do normal things,” she says. No longer can she run blithely into Ralph’s for a head of lettuce or some paper towels. “I think that if you haven’t been to the grocery store in a really long time, it’s really easy to get very out of touch,” she says.

On always playing the quirky, dorky characters she usually does:

“People do think I’m weird,” she says. “I don’t know why.”

When she was 12, she was “chubby” and recalls being picked on:

“I was ridiculed,” she says. The low point came when a mean girl spit in her face. “I really don’t know why she spit at me,” Deschanel says. “I just talked to her. I guess I wasn’t allowed to talk to her. I remember I couldn’t believe it.”

After being picked on as a child, she says she lost 30 pounds:

“All of a sudden,” she says, “everybody treated me differently.”

Marc Jacobs new fragrance ‘Dot’ smells like coconut water and dragon fruit!

I want to smell this so bad! Just the description sounds amazing!

Marc Jacobs, the genius behind my favorite perfume (Lola) is launching a new fragrance! In July of this year, he’ll debut his new perfume, Dot.

I’m in love with the adorable lady-bug themed bottle!

Dot will be the third major scent for Jacobs, who launched Daisy in 2007 and Lola in 2009.

Dot’s dot-bedecked bottle is supposed to evoke a “ladybug with butterflies alighting on it,” which makes us think it’s going to be a super-sweet scent. For those of you who speak Fragrance, Dot has top notes of red berries, dragon fruit and honeysuckle; a heart of jasmine, coconut water and orange blossom and a drydown of vanilla, driftwood and musk.

Coconut water? Like Zico?

Ads for Dot will predictably star an ultra-young model. This time it’s 19-year-old Codie Young, whom you might remember from the Topshop “size zero” controversy fame.

Cannot wait to try it!!
