Katy Perry graces the cover of Elle UK’s September 2013 issue wearing a plaid Dolce & Gabbana top and shorts. The cover image was shot by Mariano Vivanco.
In the mag Katy donned Prada, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Alexander Wang and Sacai, all from the Fall 2013 collection.
In the issue, she talks about her on-again-off-again relationship with John Mayer, moving on from Russell Brand, plus she divulges the goss on what her relationship with Robert Pattinson is all about and her friendship with Rihanna.
Katy’s Elle UK issue hits newsstands tomorrow. Here are some extracts from her interview:
On her friendship with Rihanna: I love her [Rihanna] and every time I see her, I’m reminded of the light that she has. There’s a lot of dark in this business. I know a lot of people out there with the most detrimental entourages – they are the root of their demise. It’s really unfortunate but you can’t save these people. My days of celebrity saving are over.”
On being in touch with Kristen Stewart regarding the Rob Pattinson rumours: “I sent her a text message saying, ‘I know you’ve seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I’m not that person. I’m just trying to be a friend to him but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of tits’.”
On her relationships with “challenging” men: “The men I have gone for are challenging, yes, but they’re also wildly intelligent and poetic. I’m not interested in taming anyone – I’m pretty wild myself.”
On her split from John Mayer in February: “He pulled away. That was a big hello for me. I realised I could lose the person I loved and I had to deal with some things, issues I think a lot of women have. You can be strong in one aspect of your life but submissive in another. In relationships, it was hard for me to speak up and set boundaries. I think a lot of that was to do with the fear of loss.”
