With her new movie “Katy Perry: Part of Me” set to hit theaters on July 5th, Katy Perry garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the June/July 2012 of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.
The 27-year-old pop star looked picture perfect for the Joe Pugliese shot spread while dishing about everything from depicting her divorce in her upcoming film to her goal of starting her own record label.
Highlights from Miss Perry‘s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to The Hollywood Reporter!
On her failed go at wedded life:
“I still believe in love and marriage. I’ve just learned lessons along the way. I regret nothing.”
On using class and truth when it came to her depiction of a whirlwind romance gone wrong in her upcoming movie:
“Like how I write my songs, honesty has always worked for me. So if it ain’t broke, why f—ing fix it?“
On deciding to spend her own money to help finance her movie:
“My frugal business manager [Bernie Gudvi of GSO Business Management], God bless him, was sweating, and I was like, ‘Please trust me.’ That’s kind of been the mantra I’ve said to everyone my whole life: ‘Trust me, I have a vision.’”
On her plans to start her own record label:
“When it does come to fruition, I’m going to try and avoid the things that take away any fighting chance for an artist to have financial success.”

Offering up one of the night’s electrifying performances, Katy Perry livened up the 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto, Canada on Sunday night (June 17).
The chart-topping singer was decked out in a colorful ensemble with a butterfly backdrop while also sporting a nude suit while delving into her new single “Wide Awake“.
Not only a performer during the annual north of the border musical showcase, Miss Perry happened to be named as one of the ceremony’s big winners.
Katy was doted with a pair of trophies – garnering wins in the International Video of the Year and UR Fave: International Artist categories.
Katy Perry brought her patriotic sprit to New York’s Fleet Week, lighting up Pier 9 in Brooklyn for a special concert for troops. Members of the sea services stepped off their ships to enjoy a rousing show, with Perry sparkling in an American flag-style dress.
When MTV News caught up with Perry moments before she took the stage at the waterfront Pepsi Fleet Week Katy Perry “Part of Me” Concert, she said she was thrilled to put on a show in their honor: “I think if anyone deserves a party, I think it’s probably the people in service. They are the ones that are actually deployed and protecting us from all the bad guys, and they deserve to celebrate, and they deserve to be celebrated,” she said. “I’ve always heard about Fleet Week in New York; I’ve never been a part of it. It’s really exciting to see a lot of seamen in white, but they all look gorgeous. It’s kind of vintage-y feeling and really patriotic, and I love a theme. So, it’s really cool to be a part of this and be entertaining for them. I think that it’s appropriate to go out there in a little dress, and they’re all in uniform.”
Perry performed her hit songs “Teenage Dream,”Part of Me,” and her newest single “Wide Awake,” which was written for her upcoming 3-D movie, “Katy Perry: Part of Me.”
Yet, the highlight of the night was when Perry chose one lucky U.S. Marine from the crowd to join her onstage to recreate the iconic WWII photo of a sailor’s kiss in Times Square. A 20-year-old Marine was more than happy to oblige, planting a big kiss on the pop star in front of a screaming crowd.
“I’m sure that they all have cabin fever, so I’m going to bring the one that has the most cabin fever onstage,” Perry said. “I have cabin fever, for crying out loud!”
Perry’s new flick, “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” hits theatres July 5.
Though she launched six (yes, six) number-one hits off her CD, Teenage Dream, pop phenom Katy Perry has faced a number of personal struggles in the last year or so, including a high-profile divorce from her husband, Russell Brand.
The divorce is highlighted in her new 3-D documentary, Part of Me, out July 5; and as the 27-year-old revealed on ELLEN, the decision to include her personal highs and lows was “important.”
What else did she reveal?
“I think sometimes people think that we’re perfect, and we know we’re not perfect, at all,” she said, on the episode airing Tuesday. “I think it’s important [to] start breaking down the idea that, to achieve your dream, you always have to be perfect, or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world.
“That’s why I decided to put everything into the film, in the most tasteful way,” she added. “But mostly it’s about how I go there and the ride along the way — which can be bumpy. But, mostly, it was extremely fun.”
Since her marriage ended at the end of 2011, Katy — who has reportedly split from her boyfriend, Ryan Gosling lookalike Robert Ackroyd — has been pretty vocal about what went down — mostly through song, that is. Two of her singles — ‘Part of Me’ and her latest song, ‘Wide Awake’ — have lyrics that appear to be about her one-year marriage to the British funnyman.
Russell himself talked about his split from Katy in a recent interview with Ellen, in which he said, “I love her as a human being.”
“Sometimes when you’re in a relationship I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything. I was happy to be married with her,” he added.
