There is the list of some quotes of Katy Perry:
  • If people want a role model, they can have 'Miley Cyrus' .
  • [on who she wants to kiss] 'Scarlett Johansson' before she gets married to 'Ryan Reynolds (I)' . She is a classic beauty. I love that 1940s pin-up look.
  • Have I ever kissed a girl? Of course I have. I can't sing a song and not have done it. That'd be complete hypocrisy. I fancy 'Scarlett Johansson' , 'Natalie Portman' and 'Angelina Jolie' - I'd definitely kiss them.
  • [on 'Rihanna (I)' ] We're friends and we're both kind of on this crazy roller coaster, and ... it's nice to have good girlfriends. I pride myself on having cool chicks in my life, and she's a cool chick.
  • [on future husband 'Russell Brand' ] He's a genius and geniuses are both wonderful and delicate in the greatest way.
  • [on "The X Factor" (2004) ] The most gorgeous judge is 'Cheryl (I)' . That woman is just edible.
  • [on 'Rihanna (I)' missing her wedding] I was upset she couldn't make it but let me promise you, there was no one more upset about it than her. When you have an album coming out you don't have a spare second in the day and you're answerable to the record company. She felt really bad she couldn't be there but we're still the very best of friends. My girl organized the best bachelorette party ever and I'll always love her to bits.
  • Look, any couple in a serious relationship has that talk about babies, but we haven't decided when. Russell wants lots of children and I think there's something amazing about tons of kids running around. We probably won't have the talk again for a few years - it's important to enjoy each other before having babies.
  • My singing is really important to me, but when children come along they'll be my main focus. I'd never put my career in front of my babies - it'd be a case of fitting jobs around them.
  • (on her song "I Kissed a Girl") The song was inspired by a friendship I had with a girl when I was 15, and I did kiss her. I was totally obsessed with her. She was beautiful - porcelain skin, perfect lips - and I still talk to her, but I've never told her the song is about her.
  • "I Kissed a Girl" was inspired when I opened up a magazine and I saw a picture of 'Scarlett Johansson' . I was with my boyfriend at the time, and I said to him, 'I'm not going to lie: If Scarlett Johansson walked into the room and wanted to make out with me, I would make out with her. I hope you're okay with that?'
  • This is a really important time in my life. I can't just be the girl who sang I Kissed a Girl. I have to leave a legacy.
  • [on her documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me (2012) ] I wanted to show the entire operation. People just think I'm the girl wearing the ruby slippers. I wanted to show them at the end of the journey. I am the Oz as well.
  • The number one issue for me is equal rights, whether it's being able to be equal in love, and being treated equally whether you have ovaries or not. (Billboard, 2012)
  • [on her luncheon with First Lady 'Michelle Obama' , 2012] Now my birthday is complete!
  • I remember hearing Killer Queen by 'Queen (I)' and falling down in what felt like slow motion in my bed listening to the lyrics. And I thought to myself, 'Oh my gosh, this music is incredible. These lyrics speak to me...' and that made me want to be what I am.
  • 'Queen (I)' 's track 'Killer Queen' made me discover music and helped me come into my own at the age of 15. The way 'Freddie Mercury' delivered his lyrics just made me feel like a confident woman; I'd say his fingerprint is all over me in general.
  • I get drunk, I pick my nose, I swear and I fart! I don't care, I'm not planning to become the President of the United States.
  • When I was 15, I fell in love with a female friend. I thought she was beautiful and wanted to be like her. She had such a huge impact on my life, but I never told her how I felt.
  • I've told my boyfriend that if 'Scarlett Johansson' wanted to go out with me, I'd ditch him immediately. Female beauty can be incredibly powerful... Actually, I'm obsessed with beautiful women and their elegance. I like the paradox of appearing innocent and sexy all at once.
  • I think it's important to not just play the sexy card. Be sexy but be smart and sophisticated.
  • There's times when you see other people who, the only reason why they have success is because they're just shock jocks, which works for a period of time. I haven't really taken off all my clothes yet... Yeah, I've done my fair share of 'naked on a cotton candy cloud' situation, but everything is with a wink. It's not like, 'Here's my vagina'.
  • I don't believe in a heaven or a hell or an old man sitting on a throne. I believe in a higher power bigger than me because that keeps me accountable. Accountability is rare to find, especially with people like myself, because nobody wants to tell you something you don't want to hear. I'm not Buddhist, I'm not Hindu, I'm not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God. I pray all the time - for self-control, for humility. There's a lot of gratitude in it. Just saying 'thank you' sometimes is better than asking for things.
  • People don't understand that I have a great relationship with my parents - like, how that can exist. There isn't any judgment. They don't necessarily agree with everything I do, but I don't necessarily agree with everything they do. They're at peace with - they pray for me is what they do. They're fascinated with the idea that they created someone who has this much attention on her.
  • You know you're living right when you wake up, brush your hair - and confetti falls out!
