'I had no childhood'

Glancing at the picture of Katy Perry smouldering in a flesh-coloured corset on the cover of Vanity Fair, it's not hard to reach the conclusion that she's rebelling against a ridiculously strict upbringing, especially when the interview between the covers rails against the fact that the singer 'didn't have a childhood' and grew up always being told what to think. Hmmm, no need for Freud here...

Katy told Vanity Fair, ‘I didn’t have a childhood. I was always scared I was going to get bombed when I was there. I come from a very non-accepting family, but I’m very accepting,’

She continued, ‘Russell is into Hinduism, and I’m not really involved in it. He meditates in the morning and the evening and I’m starting to do it more because it really centers me. But I just let him be him, and he lets me be me.’

The letting each other 'be' might have something to do with the fact that they're always living in different continents, but the sentiment is certainly admirable...
