Katy Perry: 'I Really Feel Like I'm More of a Taylor Swift'

Though pop star Katy Perry may look cutesy in a flirty neon pink jacket and ruffled gray jean skirt on the cover of this month’s NYLON magazine, the 25-year-old wants to make it clear her look is maturing: “Some of the kid s— I’ve grown out of completely…I’m taking it out on the Shirley Temple, Betty Boop, Lichtenstein kind of thing,” she says of her current style. “It’s still fun, but a bit darker. It’s not as annoying. Sometimes, I feel like a big strawberry with a face on it.” Other than editing her closet, the star says her music is also evolving, thanks to her recent break-through with the opposite sex. “Sometimes I really feel like I’m more of a Taylor Swift,” she admits. “Love has really affected my songwriting. I know how to handle a man now.” Of course, the man she speaks of is none other than British comedian Russell Brand, who’s now her fiance. As for the singer’s engagement ring, it’s pretty extravagant, and according to Perry, unique. “I’m glad [Russell Brand] didn’t go for the every-other-b—-in-Beverly-Hills-is-wearing-it-as-well ring,” she says.

To the first comment, Katy isn’t fat..she just has really big boobs and hips! Although I do agree that she shouldn’t have called her self a skinner Lily Allen. But I love Katy’s craziness! She’s a beauty and her crazy outgoing-ness is what makes her Katy!

A ring from Cartier is as cliche and common as it gets, but then this little twit is so clueless she wouldn’t know the difference. Soooo boring. Tick, tick, tick… this nitwit’s 15 minutes are almost up.
