Katy Perry says “I’m no feminist”
Katy Perry talked about her career on Friday, as she was honored at the Year at Billboard’s Women In Music 2012 luncheon. “I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women,” Katy said.
“I don’t really like to call myself a role model for my fans. I hope that I am an inspiration for them, especially young women. My mantra, especially for the ['Part Of Me'] film, was: If you believe in yourself, you can be anything.”
Katy also mentioned some of the women who have had an affect on her personal life. Mary Perry Hudson, Katy’s mom, was mentioned in her speech as the women who’ve inspired her most in her life, as well as her sister (“for keeping my head above water throughout all the 124 shows of the tour and some of the hardest times of my life”) and her cousin (“who just had a baby with no epidural.”
