Katy Perry Opens Up About Learning from Failure & Staying Authentic
Her American Idol co-stars Ryan Seacrest, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie are also featured in the cover story.
Here’s what the 33-year-old Witness singer had to say…
On what she’s searching for on Idol: “There are a lot of good voices out there. It’s not just about a singing voice. It’s an ‘it’ factor. It’s a combination of things.”
On how failure fuels her: “I’m learning all the time; everything turns into a lesson for me. I’m starting to realize that, after doing this a decade and reaching the highest heights, nobody is going to hit the bull’s-eye every single time.”
On the advice she received from Alanis Morissette: “If you look at your career as a graph chart, don’t get hung up on all the highs and lows. It’s about staying on the graph and making sure every move is authentic.”
