Katy Perry is an American born singer and song writer that is closely associated with fellow Disney stars Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and the Jonas Brothers. Katy Perry recently announced her engagement to Russell Brand, and maybe pregnant.
Katy Perry was not "allowed to interact with gay people" when she was younger.
The 'I Kissed a Girl' hitmaker's evangelical Christian pastors ensured she grew up in a "bubble beyond the bubble" of like-minded people and felt her education didn't truly start until she was in her 20s.
She said: "The schools were really makeshift. Education was not the first priority. My education started in my 20s, and there is so much to learn still.
"[I was not] allowed to interact with gay people [and] there is some generational racism.
Ryan Phillippe "barely" knows Katy Perry - despite rumors they are dating.
The 42-year-old actor has been heavily linked to the 'Roar' hitmaker in recent weeks, but Ryan has taken to Twitter to insist that not only is he not dating Katy, he has hardly ever spoken to her in his life.
Ryan - who was married to actress Reese Witherspoon from 1999 until 2007 - wrote: "I AM NOT DATING KATY PERRY. BARELY KNOW HER. PLEASE STOP FLYING HELICOPTERS OVER MY HOUSE. SHE IS NOT HERE. (sic)"
Ryan's statement comes shortly after Katy opened up about her sexual experiences with women.
The 39-year-old singer/songwriter was in an on/off relationship with the 'Chained to the Rhythm' hitmaker for around 18 months until early 2014 and admitted his new single, 'Still Feel Like Your Man', was written about the blond beauty.
He said: "Who else would I be thinking about? And by the way, it's a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years. That was my only relationship. So it's like, give me this, people."
Lyrics to the track include: "Still like the letters in your name and how they feel, babe / Still think I'm never gonna find another you / Still like to leave the party early and go home, babe / And don't you know, babe / I'd rather sit here on my own and be alone, babe."
The 32-year-old pop star, who was previously married to comedian Russell Brand and recently dated actor Orlando Bloom, has admitted she loves the "posh" accent and other British traditions, like the Sunday roast, a meal that consists of roasted meat, roast potato and gravy.
She shared: "Many of my English boyfriends that I've had along the way (have made them).
"I've fancied them. I'm very attracted to their accents, of course - so posh."
Katy admitted her love of British culture extends to a number of other common meals, too.
She told the BBC Radio 1 'Breakfast Show': "I've had bubble and squeak too. I've had it all ... I love a fresh-baked Yorkshire pudding."
Katy also revealed she is a fan of the British grime star Stormzy, whose debut album 'Gang Signs & Prayer' recently entered the UK album charts at number one.
The 'Roar' hitmaker said: "I love him!"
Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Katy and Orlando Bloom "still text and talk", despite the celebrity duo calling time on their almost year-long romance.
An insider previously explained: "[Orlando] is just not ready for a serious relationship, but getting back together with Perry is not out of the question.
"He cares deeply for Perry and they have a very carefree dynamic with each other. They are both free spirits."
Previously, it was suggested that the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor pulled the plug on his relationship with Katy as he didn't want things to get too serious.
A source claimed: "Katy and Orlando had a great time together.
"It was a great healing process for Orlando following his divorce from Miranda [Kerr]. But Katy and Orlando discovered they were on different pages.
"Katy wants children and to get married, while Orlando has been there and done that.
"At 32, Katy doesn't want to waste any more time. It became a strain."
Katy Perry's new single 'Rise' has been "brewing inside" her for years.
The 31-year-old singer has been silent on the music front since she released This Is How We Do in 2014, from her 2013 album Prism. But fans were delighted when she took to Twitter on Thursday night (July 14) to announce news of a shiny new track entitled Rise.
