If you think freshly-bobbed pop starlet Katy Perry is everywhere these days—you’re right! Perry’s nostalgic “Teenage Dream” video premiered last week, and her same-titled sophomore album will be released August 24. Additionally, Perry’s label has been releasing a single a week on iTunes leading up to the LP’s drop date. And now the New York Times has published a piece about her! Naturally we had to round up the future Mrs. Brand’s best quotes from the article.
THE 7 CLASSIEST QUOTES FROM KATY PERRY’S NEW YORK TIMES PROFILE PIECE:
* “I think the 15-year-old me would be excited and flabbergasted, and also say, ‘Put on some clothes’.”
* “I wanted to be Amy Grant.”
* ON WHETHER SHE REGRETS NOT FINISHING HIGH SCHOOL: “No, because spell-check exists everywhere.”
* “I never want to walk into this [expletive] restaurant and people go: ‘What does she do again? Who is she?’”
* WHILE AT A BEACH-THEMED LISTENING PARTY PARTY FOR HER ALBUM, CLEARLY FORGETTING HER “CALIFORNIA GURLS” LYRICS: “I don’t want sand in my stilettos.”
* AND SPEAKING OF “CALIFORNIA GURLS”: “God, that song is so annoying.”
* EMI’S EXECUTIVE VP OF MARKETING ON PERRY: “[She is] a drop-dead gorgeous girl [with] a truck driver’s mouth.”
It’s likely no one would argue with that. So with all this promotion—not to mention two hit singles currently nestled in the Top 5 of Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart—is there any doubt that Katy’s Teenage Dream is poised to become one of the bigger album successes of the latter of half of 2010?
