The ‘Part of Me’ singer explained that she would rather be able to create her music than be in the public eye.
“Fame is just a disgusting by-product of what I do,” she told Teen Vogue.
“It can love you, and then it can attack you. But really, I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago.”
Perry also said that she is always surprised when fans become hysterical when they meet her.
“I want to be as approachable as possible. I’ll say, ‘Calm down, there’s nothing to cry about’. I’m not going to bite you or attack you or grant you three wishes. Let’s just hang out and have a good time.”
The ‘Teenage Dream’ star will release her debut 3D movie Part of Me on July 4, which she recently said was inspired by Madonna.
Perry’s ex-husband Russell Brand has reportedly given her a Beverly Hills home they purchased together.
