Katy Perry: ‘Weed doesn’t agree with me. I just turn to red wine’

Katy Perry

Kaiser already covered the Katy Perry fashion week photos from the Givenchy show. These are pictures of Katy wearing one of her Lolita-type outfits at the Jeremy Scott event. After her fashion week visit, Katy immediately went back to touring. She does work hard, but she’s in Amsterdam now, so will she party hard? Katy called Elvis Duran yesterday to talk about how she won’t partake of Amsterdam’s abundant marijuana supply:

She doesn’t like pot: “I’m going to go to the red light district tonight, actually, but let me just say this. Weed doesn’t agree with me! I turn into more of a weirdo than I actually am. I don’t really even do cocktails anymore. There’s a certain point in your life where you just turn to red wine, and that’s kind of the point I’ve turned to … A nice Malbec–I love a nice Malbec.”

Her current food habits: “I’m eating myself around the world. I was doing that kind of pseudo-Paleo think before the Super Bowl, because I had like a real goal,” she said. “And then, like the moment I got offstage, I had a Papa John’s pizza waiting for me with extra garlic sauces! I’ve just been kind of eating! I’ve been to all these great places in Italy, and all of these great place in France and had all the food that goes along with it. But I do have to shoot something important coming up in about three weeks, so I’m back to like digesting oatmeal and asparagus.”

Cardio doesn’t help her anymore: “My body’s gotten used to it, so that it just doesn’t care anymore. As you get older, it’s more about what you eat [and] less about your movement, I think. It’s really about what you put into your body.”

[From Elvis Duran & the Morning Show]

Katy and I have a few things in common here. I don’t dislike weed on principle. I tried to give it the old college try (in college). Tried it a handful of times, and it just wasn’t my thing because … munchies. Inhaling an entire plate of nachos in five minutes feels good for five minutes, and then it feels awful. But wine, yes. I love a nice, moderately priced merlot in the form of a Bota Box. So classy!

Incidentally, Elvis Duran once described Katy asfun” but “a little guarded.” I agree. Katy behaves like an airhead because that’s her shtick, but she’s a shrewd businesswoman at heart. She still has terrible taste in men.

    Good. More for me.

    I agree with her about exercise. I think ultimately diet is way more impactful as far as losing weight. That doesn’t mean that exercise isn’t important, but your body does get used to it if you’ve been doing it long enough.

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      And me! Catnip for all the kitties s as well!

    • Pinky says:

      This is very true. You can’t out run a bad diet period. a cheat day is ok but it’s delusional to think that’s it’s possible to burn off tabs of ice cream with work outs, unless working out is all you do, all day every day.

      • bettyrose says:

        But your body also gets used to a good diet. You can be a whole foods vegan exercising 2x a day and that g-d red wine won’t burn off! Gah!!!

  2. Cucumber says:

    She looks a bit like Michelle trachtenburg in the last photo

    • CB says:

      Yes, when Michelle was on Buffy. She’s complaining about Kim K’s clothing and is 30+ wearing a teddy bear outfit and pigtails.

      No shade. I love Teddy bears and pigtails. I also don’t critique people’s wardrobes–unless they start it! :)

  3. Sam says:

    Weed doesn’t agree with her but I guess she and coke get along just fine.

  4. Ellie66 says:

    I don’t like wine it gives me heartburn :( I don’t think ur “classy” if u drink wine I’ve seen plenty of Wino’s and drunk is drunk. I do like the herb though. 😉

  5. LANA says:

    LMAO Is she trying to imitate FKA twigs style with the nose ring and baby hair?

  6. mark says:

    ‘She still has terrible taste in men’

    Or maybe she’s just a terrible wife/girlfriend.

    Plus most people who smoke act like 15 year olds who have just started smoking it. We get it you like weed..you’re so hardcore

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      As a pot smoker, I have to agree that I act pretty immature, which is why I usually only smoke with close friends. For me, it’s not a social drug like alcohol, which makes me a little too social… to be fair, it isn’t fun being sober around drunk and stoned people, but I think most people are pretty responsible about it.

    • Ceree says:

      Well sh*t, don’t kill our vibe. Weed is awesome and the people who smoke it are usually chill, un dramatic, agreeable people, I love my fellow stoners.

  7. EC says:

    Terrible taste in men, *possibly* even more terrible taste in clothing. What the sh*t is this teddy bear/professional cheerleader getup??

  8. Size Does Matter says:

    She resembles Lady from Lady and the Tramp in that getup.

  9. QQ says:

    I’m sorry but that outfit and the pigtails.. that sh!t is revolting, she looks like a young lot Lizard

    • NorthernGirl_20 says:

      It’s absolutely terrible, she’s much too old to be wearing that – I feel embarrassed for her. She can look so good in nice clothes I don’t understand this .. why is she trying to look like she’s 8 years old?

    • homegrrrl says:

      She needs to dress like Dita Von Teese. KP needs to get with the 40′s classic thing and let it stick. The Harajuko teen thing just looks deranged!

  10. TheGPoint says:

    EXCEPT, regular exercise is not something you do only to stay fit and lose weight.
    Among the several benefits of an active lifestyle are:

    - stimulations of chemicals such as serotonin, which helps you feel relaxed
    - increase of blood flow to the brain
    - efficient oxygen and nutrients’delievery to the body
    - increase of good cholesterol / decrease of triglycerides
    - prevention of dangerous conditions like diabetes, heart diseases, high blood pressure and more.
    - ….
    Yes, I did my homework! So shut up Katy Perry, we all know that your are probably at the furthest distance to a healthy lifestyle one can possibly be at.

    Hate weed. Not for me either. Want nothing to do with it..alcohol either–it’s so past me now–kids suck the fun right outta ya. Anyways, she looks fab in the last picture, I love that outfit, probably bc I don’t know what’s going on with it. Her first look, is it Halloween?

  12. kri says:

    Her outfit does not agree with me. Also (sadly) weed does nothing for me except make me cough. It’s frustrating-but vodka. I am Karen Walker & Anastasia Beaverhausen! Sigh. I guess we all have our vices. At least I don’t wear clothes made from kid toys. Except for the pug onesie. But that’s more of an animal rights statement. Or so I tell myself.

    • prettylights says:

      Here here to good vodka! Having a screwdriver is something my Polish Grandmother loved and now I enjoy them too.

  13. Chellbelle says:

    She looks ridiculous and those pigtails, gurl please. If you have to do pig tails, loose side plaits. Not “age 5, high pageant pigtails” It’s a cool cute look if you’re under 25, although yikes at 30. I’d wear it if I was 16.

  14. Pandy says:

    Awful outfit and stupid comment. You cannot control your weight through diet alone. Not in the lonng run.

    • Becky says:

      I agree with you on both topics. Only a teenager or someone in their very early twenties could pull off that hairstyle and outfit-she’s too old for that look. She’s also really wrong about exercise. Yeah, you can’t eat 4,000 calories a day and expect to burn it all off with 45 minutes of cardio but you can’t rely on diet alone to keep the weight off unless you’re the rare person who only eats about 1,200 calories per day.

  15. Stella says:

    Terrible taste in men? Hmm … Excuse me, but Russell Brand is awesome. Intelligent, funny, and hot (as long as you’re into unconventional/scruffy looks, which I am).

    • homegrrrl says:

      Russel Brand may be intelligent, talented and a hard worker, but he’s not “husband material” or even datable due to his STD risk. He’d make an awesome work pal, someone to deliver the crazed weekend stories to lighten up a blah Monday. I feel sorry for the wanna be lion tamer women among us who want to “transform” the perpetually non-committal types. Russel Brand and that musician, ugh… KP likes a project!

  16. prettylights says:

    I love Bota box! I like to get a white wine box to share when I have friends over.

    I don’t smoke weed too often, just a hit here and there if someone offers, which is funny since I live in a place with legal weed. I smoke way less now than I did in college when it wasn’t legal to do so. The older I get the less I like the buzz… sometimes it does the opposite of relax me, it makes me a bit anxious and I start thinking about work and family and if I’m being inappropriate or too weird and stuff that I don’t want to think about when I’m trying to relax and have fun. I get where she’s coming from.

    • ann says:

      I have to take my own shots of medicine for rheumatoid arthritis and suffer extreme pain sometimes. I’m so sensitive to weed, (rapid heart beat, paranoia, anxious) so when I have to, I just take about a tenth of what a normal person might need in a baked cookie. . Apparently, by eating it, it’s more of a body stone than a “head stone” IMO. but it really does work well for pain. Works better and healthier than morphine or all the other nasty stuff. I still can’t believe it’s so difficult to get a doctor’s ok for medical cannabis in British Columbia, Canada.

    And this is why I will never, ever like Katy Perry.
