Katy Perry’s Barbara Walters Interview: Watch How ‘Fascinating’ It Is (Or Isn’t)

Katy Perry’s Most Fascinating People Of 2011 interview with Barbara Walters aired last night, and it pretty much covered all the basics we already knew: her religious upbringing; her coy is-she-or-isn’t-she stance following her breakthrough hit “I Kissed A Girl” (for the record, when asked if she’s totally straight, Perry says she’s not “totally anything”); her relationship with husband Russell Brand.

Walters asked chart juggernaut Perry about the tattoo of Jesus’ name on her left wrist. “I did this Jesus tatoo when I was 18 years old, legally,” Katy explained. “And I did it because, no matter how much I do change, I always want to know where my roots began.”

The interview ends on a whimsical note, with Katy telling Barbara that she hopes to be”changing till the last day that I’m on this earth.”

Personally, we kind of thought Babs’ interview with Katy was a bit of a by-the-numbers snooze. For a far sexier times spent with the “One That Got Away” singer, why not hit up our roundup of her 10 Hottest Photo Shoots Of 2011?
