5 Katy Perry GQ Quotes to Make You Stop Ogling Her Cover Photos and Start Reading

Some kids pray for world peace, the “Roar” singer prayed for big boobs

Pop star Katy Perry caught some flack last year for performing at the American Music Awards in full Geisha garb. Just before the controversial set, before she even finished caking on the white makeup or threw on the kimono, Perry allowed GQ Magazine to hang out in her dressing room with her team, her thoughts, and Rihanna‘s weed.

The result is February's cover story and a slew of titillating images. The quotes weren't too boring either. Here are five of the buzziest quotes lifted from the pages of next month's GQ Magazine:

High Times
“Everyone is high!” Perry's dressing room in the basement of the Nokia Theatre for the AMAs was downwind from Rihanna‘s, which perhaps explains the smell of marijuana smoke wafting towards the “Roar” singer. Though she swears that she does not partake: “The weed — I'm not friends with it.”

Prayer, Answered
“I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God,” Perry recounted to GQ. “I said, ‘God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can't see my feet when I'm lying down?’ God answered my prayers,” she said, referring to an age 11 growth spurt. “I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually.”

But She Doesn't Know Who She's Praying to …
“I do not believe God is an old guy sitting on a throne with a long beard … I don't believe in heaven and hell as a destination.” So what does the middle child of two traveling ministers believe in? Perry told GQ that she simply believes in “a cosmic energy that is bigger than me.”

However, Something Is Definitely Up There
“I believe in aliens,” Perry told GQ. “I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form? I mean, if my relationship with Obama gets any better, I'm going to ask him that question. It just hasn't been appropriate yet.”

Say ‘Grace’
“Love that record so much,” Perry told GQ, referring to Jeff Buckley's album “Grace.” So what is the significance? Perry lost her virginity while listening to Buckley's “Grace” in a Volvo sedan at 16-years-old. Which begs the question: How many 16-year-olds are losing their virginities to Perry's “Prism?” The circle of life.

    I'll take this kid and her Cosmic energy and aliens any day…. Of all of today's young music stars, I think she is about as healthy as they come. I've never heard a word she has sang, but she has done some neat human interest gigs I read about and looks utterly fantastic in a skirt.. I know I know.. Sue me for saying it.

    The expression is “to catch some flak” (technically Flak with a capital F). Flak is a German abbreviation for Flugzeugabwehrkanone (Anti-Aircraft Gun) and the expression originated during WW II when Allied bomber crews had to fly through Flak zones in order to reach their designated targets.

    Wants to ask the president about aliens… you go girl!

  • Jim

    Just cover your ears and stare at her rack.

  • Guest

    Perry is a tiresome pop star with an over-inflated ego. She pretends to be oh, so edgy and avant-garde and clever and and and … in reality, she is simply a flake.

  • Marinell Smith

    Baphomets? Egyptian pagans? Magic? Don't close your eyes, people. She is NOT worshipping the God of Abraham, Issaic, and Jacob. Who IS her god, you ask (if you care one way or the other)? Who do YOU think her god is? Read, people, read, if you care to. She is beautiful and has winning ways and an absolutely great powerful voice, but she's carrying around another kind of power. Who or what do you think it is? Read, read, read. Who does the baphomet represent and all of those Egyptian pagans?
