In the issue she talks her 3-D film Katy Perry: Part of Me:
“I wanted to document the tour, because when we started to book these really big venues, I felt like I was going all in. I wanted to show people this parade that surrounds me … I wanted them to see the engine. I think sometimes they look at me and wonder, How is it possible that she continues to have this kind of success? I wanted people to be able to experience the tour and all the joy it brought, which is why we shot it in 3-D.”
She also talks acting in more films:
“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.”
Katy Perry: Part of Me releases July 5.
