Leave it to Katy Perry to get real about those plastic surgery rumors!
In a new interview with Refinery 29, the 33-year-old celeb was transparent about the work she has or hasn’t had done.
“I haven’t had any. I’ve done lasers and got [filler] injections under my eyes for the hollowing — which I’d recommend for everyone who wants a solution for their dark circles — but all of my assets are real. People tend to think they are fake, but it doesn’t really matter.”
“We’re getting away from that negative stigma about physical alterations. Of course, always be your authentic self — but if someone wants a nose job that makes them feel better, and they love their profile more because of it, it’s like ‘Go ahead!’ Do whatever makes you feel better about yourself. Stay in therapy, but get it, girl.”
So if it’s not plastic surgery keeping Katy’s skin looking perfect, what’s her secret?
The longtime promoter of Proactiv says she was being real when she advocated for the brand:
“They do not pay me to say that! It actually solved my acne problem. I used to have really, really bad skin in my early 20s when things were starting to pop off, so it was stress-related and my body was changing from coming out of the teenage years. I remember I was doing laser treatments, trying different ointments, going to very expensive facialists, and nothing worked. Someone recommended I try the Proactiv cleanser and I thought, ‘No way, no how will that fix anything.’ And I’ve been using it for 10 years and it’s been incredible. I don’t break out because of that.”
It’s also the fuel she puts into her body that makes her skin glow:
“I love food, and sometimes if I’m in a bad mood, all I’ll want is the classic ice cream from McDonalds that tastes the same no matter what country you’re in. But that quick dopamine hit that makes you feel good for one second turns on you in the long run. In the past year, I’ve eaten better than I have ever eaten — less fast food, less sugar — and the sustainability of my body is so much better. My face just glows.”
Ultimately, the Roar artist insists we must stop being so obsessed with Instagram culture and how we look on the outside:
“A lot of us are living for that picture, and then the currency is the like. It’s hard because I’d rather not care about that and just live my life. We buy clothing and products or pose a certain way or go to an event to get a picture — it’s not good for us as a society. I think it’s actually the decline of civilization if we’re going extreme about it. We have to find a balance, and I’m trying to find my own personal balance with it because I’m just as much a victim as everybody else.”
