Katy: I’m more authentic than Kim K

John Mayer and Katy Perry

Katy Perry thinks her new video with John Mayer is more authentic than Bound 2.

The 29-year-old singer made the comparison to Kanye West’s latest music promo, which stars his fiancée Kim Kardashian straddling him on a motorcycle, topless.

Katy said the reason her and boyfriend John’s video for their duet Who You Love is more authentic is all down to her hair.

“I thought our response was a little bit more authentic because my hair was blowing in the right direction,” Katy joked to Ellen DeGeneres.

Katy and John have been dating on and off since 2012, after Katy split from her ex-husband Russell Brand.

The talented pair have now made sweet music together, releasing their duet recently.

Katy thinks part of the reason their relationship works so well is because they have a mutual appreciation for music.

“Yeah we have a lot of fun. You know, we have music as an understanding and love between each other and we connect and you know it’s like he understands what I do because he does the same thing.

“And so after a long day, if it’s been tough, I don’t really have to go into it, he just gets it. You know, so it’s nice with that understanding,” Katy explained.

Katy’s latest album Prism is very personal to the singer, and she opened up to Ellen about how she reflected on the things that happened within her own life when penning the tracks.

“Teenage dream was so much but it was very highly conceptual, it was almost as if I’d created this cartoony character, an exaggerated version of me and everything was very colorful and full of candy and stuff.

“This record is a lot more vulnerable; it shows another side of me and another layer of my mind and all the different things I’ve been through and the route of positivity I decided to take,” she said.
