Last week, we covered the new photos of Katy Perry’s boobtastic appearance on the August issue of Esquire UK. HuffPo now how excerpts of Katy’s interview, and she comes across as… ugh. Maybe I just don’t like this girl. Except that I don’t really have any massive issue with her. She’s cute and she looks healthy and she has a nice figure, and she’s really lacking in musical talent but she’s not obnoxious about it or anything. She’s unoriginal and uninspired, but she seems relatively harmless. But this interview makes her sound like she believes her own hype – like she’s not simply a confident young woman, but instead she thinks she’s God’s gift. And really, she’s not.
On first meeting her match:
“I was 25, 30 feet away from him. And I threw the bottle straight at him: hit him smack dab on the head. Can you imagine the horrible feeling he had, when he was used to getting everything he wanted? I was like, ‘You’ve met your match, motherf*cker.’ A week later we went on vacation in Thailand.”
On taming Russell Brand:
“He used to basically be a professional prostitute – now he’s not. So he’s an extremist which can be both good and bad. I always needed someone stronger than me. And I am, like, a f*cking strong elephant of a woman [sic]. I say that hopefully in the humblest way I can.”
On being one in the same person as her future husband:
“I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I am you. You are me.’ Two divas in one house. It’s like splitting the atom: it shouldn’t happen.”
On being a girl-next-door type:
“I feel like I wanna be somewhat of a girl-next-door, but not as f*uckin’ sappy.”
On her number 1 single California Gurls:
“I was thinking to myself how perfect it would be to have a California anthem. I can’t let the Beach Boys down. I can’t let Tupac down. I had the idea to put Snoop on – I thought he would be the cherry on top, and it would make me look cooler.”
On smoking with Snoop:
“I was scared for my life to get off the hookah. Everyone else is smoking everything else. I was saying to myself, ‘If that sh*t still gets Snoop high, if I breathe it in I will die. I will be on a permanent balloon.’ I was like, ‘Hold on to the hookah.’”
On always getting her way:
“I was always very manipulative as a kid – I got my way. Which has helped me my whole life.”
On being larger than life:
“We are both larger than life. I think we are kind of cartoony. But I don’t think that means we’re not to be taken seriously.”

Yeah. We’ll see. The story isn’t over yet, Katy. And while Russell Brand is yours right now, he already seems to be white-knuckling the engagement, so good luck with the marriage. We’ll see if Katy is still “You’ve met your match, motherf-cker” and “I am, like, a f-cking strong elephant of a woman.” We’ll see.
