Katy Perry graces the cover of Rolling Stone, and she posed for some gorgeous pictures by photographer Mark Seliger, seen below. More photos here.
In the article, previewed here, she talks about googling herself, and readily tweeting out a response to a Google Alert she received.
"Any artist who says they don't Google their name is a big fat liar," she says. She then tweets a response to an article that claimed she had smack talked Miley Cyrus.
"It's a little gross," she says. "I'm sure no one knew or cared about that line about Miley. When you look at other celebrities' Twitter feeds and see them posting about something they read about themselves on a Google Alert, it's like, 'Uh, maybe you should stop Googling yourself every day, the world does not spin around you.' "
She also talks about her religious upbringing and her 'blasphemy' comment about Lady Gaga. "I am sensitive to Russell taking the Lord’s name in vain and to Lady Gaga putting a rosary in her mouth. I think when you put sex and spirituality in the same bottle and shake it up, bad things happen. Yes, I said I kissed a girl. But I didn’t say I kissed a girl while f-ing a crucifix.”
