Katy Perry covers the February 2014 issue of GQ and opens up on everything from her all-natural body to her friendship with the president to how she lost her virginity. In the revealing feature, we learn that Perry grew up poor, during which time she wasn’t allowed to listen to rock nor eat Lucky Charms (because luck is tied to Lucifer), and that she wrote “Unconditionally” about on-again boyfriend John Mayer after their recent breakup at the time.

Perry may no longer be a Christian artist, but she explains she has a lifelong belief in God, mainly because He gave her prodigious breasts after she prayed for them. “I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, ‘God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can’t see my feet when I’m lying down?’” She told the mag that subsequently, when she was 11, “God answered my prayers. I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually.” Sorry, millions of starving and diseased people around the globe, but God’s to-do list appears to be all out of whack.

Head below for more interview highlights, and click through the photos from Perry’s cover shoot above.

On weed: “The weed—I’m not friends with it… I can’t do that stuff. I’d be like in the corner: ‘Are you trying to kill me?!’”

On her relationship with Mayer: “I think that I needed to grow up… I’m just having a wonderful experience with a wonderful guy. There’s no rush.”

On God: “I do not believe God is an old guy sitting on a throne with a long beard.” Although, judging by her breast prayer, it sounds like God most certainly is an old dude with a long beard.

On her body: “I’ve never had any plastic surgery. Not a nose, not a chin, not a cheek, not a tit. So my messages of self-empowerment are truly coming from an au naturel product.”

On aliens: “I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens. I look up into the stars and I imagine: How self-important are we to think that we are the only life-form?”

On President Obama: “If my relationship with Obama gets any better, I’m going to ask him that [alien] question. It just hasn’t been appropriate yet… I might have won Wisconsin for him. Actually, I didn’t do too much, but he called on me a couple of times. Which was very nice.”

Losing her virginity: The writer informs us Perry lost her virginity at age 16 while listening to Jeff Buckley’s album Grace in a car. ”Love that record so much.”

    Glad god took the time to stop giving babies malaria to give Katy her boobs.

  2. Don’t feel bad Kate , millions of young people lost their virginity to Obama.

  3. Mark

    Saving a person from disease saves one soul. Giving Katy Perry those boobs makes half the population of the globe happy. Nice work, God.

  4. Greg

    God, just when you start to think Katy Perry might be a tier above the rest, she does a spread like this one. Does anyone remember a couple months ago whilst promoting ‘Prism’, when Ms. Perry said she was so disappointed with how many women in music use their bodies to sell their brand? Nice Katy, very nice.

    These questions are irrelevant. Though from GQ, which caters purely to men with money, they seem a perfect fit. Katy comes off just a step above a generic bimbo though, and that’s so disappointing. Who gives a damn about when she lost her virginity? And if she’s so classy, why is she telling an interviewer the intimate details of it?

    I have no problem with Katy whatsoever, and i’m a fan of her music, but man oh man does she discredit herself with these tepid kind of interviews …

    try again Katy.
