In an interview with the NYTimes, Katy Perry elaborates on what she imagines her gospel-aspiring, squeaky fifteen-year-old self would say to her camp persona today:
“I think the 15-year-old me would be excited and flabbergasted,” Ms. Perry said, “and also say, ‘Put on some clothes.’ ”
I think my fifteen-year-old self would look at me now and be horrified that I look exactly like my sisters (which isn’t a bad thing, IMO) and wonder how I can stomach making out with a guy with a beard (a guy who also happens to be the guy I dated when I was fifteen, long story, eat it, mom).
Thirty-year-old me would tell her that the baby barrettes and flannel look kind of gauche.
