ON THE PHYSICALITY OF THIS PHOTO SHOOT:
KATY PERRY: I was sore in my upper body and in my butt area from all that squatting.
MADONNA: It’s good to be sore in your butt. My neck is sore from that wonderful moment when I was sucking on your heel.
ON PROVOCATIVE SHOWMANSHIP:
M: I would always say, Dad, I’m an artist, I have to express myself. You don’t understand. I think he’s finally come to terms with it. It’s only taken 30 years. He’s like, Do you have to simulate masturbation on the bed? Do you have to? Yes, Dad, I do.
KP: I haven’t gone that far yet, but maybe under your great mentorship I might reach that point.
ON GETTING READY FOR A TOUR:
M: A couple of weeks before my production rehearsals I look and feel like a truck ran me over.
KP: [laughs] Oh, I look like that now.
ON OCD TENDENCIES:
KP: Im so OCD that I want those letters in alphabetical order. C-D-O would be my preference.
