If you’re making snap judgements about Katy Perry’s forthcoming album Witness based on the starter of a new single “Bon Appetit,” Perry’s urging you to wait for all 3 courses.
In a preview of an interview with The Ellen Degeneres Show, Perry says her new collection of 15 songs has made her very “pleased,” and she thinks fans will feel the same way once they experience the album as a complete work.
“Right now you’re just seeing parts of the body of work and the first single Bon Appetite is sort of the sexually empowered and liberated part,” she say’s. “‘Chained to the Rhythm’ was kind of the mental, political liberation.” A nice thought, given the political landscape dominating all news out-lets at the minute.
And if the sexual undertones of “Bon Appetit” have left you a little shocked, Perry explains that she’s ‘simply trying to sincerely capture this decade of her life’.
“Now, embracing my 30’s, which i think is so bomb dot com, I love it so much, I love being a woman and I love a consensual interaction,” she said. “There’s nothing wrong with that, we’re all animals!”
“Most of the time I just like to lift people’s spirits,” she adds.
Perry also explains her shocking new hair — a blond buzzcut that she first unveiled in April. She said she hadn’t necessarily intended to shock and surprise, but that at some point, she had no choice but to do something drastic.
