Katy Perry: 'I'm Tired of Being Famous'S

Katy Perry to Teen Vogue, on fame:

I'm tired of being famous already! But I'm not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do. It's quite a delicate creature—it's a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you. I still want to be as approachable and relatable as possible—when I meet fans and they're crying, 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." But really, I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago. If you try to be everything to everyone, you'll only end up completely confused.

If your fame were a wild animal, which wild animal would it be? (Seaslug.)
