Katy Perry is on the cover of Parade!

Katy Perry is on the cover of Parade Magazine in time for the 4th of July and the showing of her up-coming movie Part of Me!

In the interview, Katy opens up about her movie, why she decided to include her divorce in the film and her support for gay marriage.

Below are some excerpts from the interview:

On why she’s featuring her breakup in the movie: “I think if people walked out of the theater and that was completely avoided, they would be like, ‘Well, there’s an elephant in the room that’s still there.’ I like to go out there looking like a strong woman, because I am strong. But I am also a woman who goes through all kinds of problems and highs and lows. I wanted to show the complete spectrum.”

Despite being addressed in the film, the breakup is understandably a sensi­tive subject for Perry. She refers to it only as “the situation”-as in, “I’m very aware that it’s inappropriate to give too much away, and that really the situation is just between two people.” When it’s noted that she and Brand have been respectful of each other in the media, she responds cryptically, “The universe will have its way.”

Katy’s “musical collaborator” Bonnie McKee on “Wide Awake”: “When we wrote ‘Teenage Dream,’ it was really about your first love and how magical that is. I think Russell made her feel that way again, and she felt she had found the personshe was going to spend the rest of her life with. And whenthat didn’t turn out to be what she’d hoped, it kind of made sense to talk about waking up.”

On her concert movie: “There are a lot of things that are personally uncomfortable to show, especially me without makeup and completely bloated or crying. But I’ve realized that it’s time for me to show my audience that you don’t have to be perfect to achieve your dreams. Because nobody relates to being perfect. … I’m okay with having bad dance moves. I’m okay with having horrible lower teeth. That’s what makes me me, and for some reason it’s worked out all right.”

On her reaction to Obama’s support of same-sex marriage: “I was really happy; I probably went down to West Hollywood and had a shot. I came from a different mind-set growing up, and my mind has changed. My viewpoint on all these things-equality for women, the choice to love anyone you want-hopefully, we will look back at this moment and think like we do now concerning [other] civil rights issues. We’ll just shake our heads indisbelief, saying, ‘Thank God we’ve evolved.’ That would be my prayer for the future.’”

On her patriotism: “Not to sound overly cheesy but I really appreciate thefreedom we have in America-especially as a female.”


Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise, wants sole custody!

Katie Holmes has decided to end her marriage with Tom Cruise over Scientology!

Katie filed for divorce in New York on June 28, citing  “irreconcilable differences”. She wants sole custudy of Suri Cruise, 6,  primarily because she doesn’t want Tom controlling any decisions relating to religion and  “primary residential custody”.

Katie has never really fully adopted the Scientology lifestyle, and the primary reason for the filing was over Tom Cruise’s involvement with the Scientology church, and more importantly that Tom would drag Suri into the church.

We also know Katie is asking for a “suitable amount” of child support .. this according to the divorce docs.

Katie also asks for a division of property in her divorce docs, although we know there was a significant prenup that is based on California law. Katie makes no mention of the prenup in her filing.

We’re told Tom is “very sad” and “did not see this coming.” He was spotted wearing his wedding ring just this week while filming in Iceland. Interestingly, Katie also wore her ring this week.

We’re also told there is some “nastiness” here, evidenced by Katie’s move to get sole legal custody.

Tom’s rep has released a statement saying, “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children.  Please allow them their privacy to work this out.”

Katie’s divorce petition was filed anonymously, without names.

The couple was last seen together  was during the Oscars.
