It may be a long wait before we get any new music from Katy Perry.
She’s taking a step back from her music career for the moment. “I’ve been on the road for like 10 years, so I’m just going to chill,” she explains. “I’m not going to go straight into making another record. I feel like I’ve done a lot. I feel like I’ve rung the bell of being a pop star very loudly, and I’m very grateful for that.”
She adds, “I love making music, I love writing. But I don’t feel like I’m a part of a game anymore; I just feel like I’m an artist. I don’t feel like I have to prove anything, which is a freeing feeling.”
Right now, she’s focusing on her signature footwear line, which launched two years ago.
She’ll be appearing on QVC on October 10 selling shoes from her footwear line as part of FFANY Shoes on Sale, a breast cancer fundraiser sponsored by the Fashion Footwear Association of New York.
