If the world's pop stars were cast in a soap opera, Taylor Swift would be the "sweetheart," according to Katy Perry.
The songstress made the theoretical casting while discussing how celebrities embody certain characters and how the press portrays those characters while speaking with Elle for the magazine's March 2015 issue.
"You've got to name someone the villain, someone the princess, someone the mom-, the dad-type—you know there always have to be characters," Perry told Elle for its Fashion Issue. "As pop figures, we're all characters. And the media uses that. Who is the sweetheart, who is the villain? You know. Taylor's the sweetheart. Kanye's the villain. That's the narrative."
Becoming tabloid fodder is probably not something the 30-year-old "Roar" singer had hoped for when she was just a little girl.
"It is a hundred times harder a dream than the dream that I dreamt when I was nine," she said. "You think you signed up for one thing, but you automatically sign up for a hundred others. And that is why you see people shaving their fucking heads."
