Katy Perry Covers ‘Elle UK,’ Talks Robert Pattinson & Rihanna

Glamorous whipped cream brassiere Katy Perry has titled her new album Prism (because she has strong feelings on issues of national security and is also the secret alter ego of Edward Snowden), but she didn’t have much to say about the upcoming LP in her cover story for the September issue of Elle UK(Or maybe they just haven’t pulled those quotes yet. Who knows.) She looks sleek on the cover in a Dolce & Gabbana peplum sheath, which is what I wore to the corner store this morning.

At any rate, front and center in this interview are a few other things — mostly, Katy talking about other people, like her friends who are also famous! On the subject of pallid glitterbomb Robert Pattinson, with whom she seemed rather cozy following his split from Kristen Stewart, a sullen Hot Topic employee who moonlights as an A-list actress, she demurred: “I sent [Kristen] 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.'” Elegantly phrased, KP.

Regarding her split from John Mayer, with whom she’s since reunited, she explained: “I realized 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.”

But without risk, there’s no reward: “The men I have gone for are challenging, yes, but they’re also wildly intelligent and poetic,” she said. “I’m not interested in taming anyone — I’m pretty wild myself.”

The weirdest quote, though, is surely what she had to say about her friend Rihanna, a vanilla bluntwrap who releases #1 hits for fun: “I love her and every time I see her, I’m reminded of the light that she has,” she said. “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.”

Cryptic references to not being able to save someone because of how “dark” the business is? Cue the Illuminati rumor machine!
