It comes as no surprise that Katy Perry needs a bit of a break.
She released her megahit Teenage Dream album two years ago, and it’s been a bit of blur ever since. She’s shot numerous, big-budget music videos, topped the charts, got married and divorced, toured the world, re-released her album and even managed to squeeze in filming her first-ever 3-D concert film, “Katy Perry: Part of Me.”
It’s a sequence of events that would leave a lesser women exhausted. And it seems all that hustle and bustle is finally catching up with the purple-haired pop superstar. She said she’s now ready to chill out for a bit — finally.
“I’m going into hiding,” she told MTV News on Tuesday night at her splashy film premiere in L.A. The lady in red added, “I want to go and write songs in the woods or something.”
If it feels like you’ve been seeing a lot of Perry lately, well, that will soon change.
“I’m gonna unplug, take my hair extensions out, feel my head again. I’m gonna unplug and recharge, if that makes any sense,” she said. “I’m gonna go away. I’m sure you know it’s time for me to go the f— away.”
But before she does actually goes off the grid, she’ll be around a little bit longer as she promotes her July 5 movie release, which she said will show fans just how crazy her Teenage Dream era has truly been. Her film touches on not only the good, but also the bad, including her split from ex Russell Brand .
“I wouldn’t say it’s so therapeutic, because the movie is so well-rounded with so many different things,” Perry said. “I guess some of it is just hopefully an inspiration for people. When they see it, they are like, ‘Oh, yeah, she goes through some sh– too. I can’t dodge life’s curve balls if Katy Perry can’t dodge life’s curve balls.’ ”
