Katy Perry Wide Awake

In a new interview, Katy tells MTV that she’s ‘truthful’ in her music videos and she hopes this song will inspire her fans — watch her most candid interview yet!

Katy Perry is the symbol of strength. The beautiful singer spoke with MTV about her newly released music video “Wide Awake” and says that she wants to be “honest” with her fans when it comes to her music.

“I’m super truthful and honest when it comes to writing music videos,” she says. “And I just want to continue to remain honest.”

Katy says she hopes that her fans feel encouraged after listening to this song and watching this video. 

“I hope they feel encouraged that it doesn’t matter what thing is thrown at you or what kind of obstacle you face,” she says. “You can get through it and land on your feet triumphantly and strong. That’s what I hope people get from this music video … from the song. It’s just you’ve gotta grow up a little bit, I guess. Sometimes you have to deal with some things in order to move on in life. That’s what I’m doing.”

Katy is inspiring and so is this video.
