Pop star Katy Perry says she's at a stage of her career when she wants to share with her millions
of fans who she really is.
The 32-year-old singer has just released her new album "Witness" which she claims consists of some of her most honest and politically charged lyrics, reported NME magazine.
Perry says she wants her admirers to know who Katheryn Hudson really is away from the bubblegum pop of her past.
"I love being Katy Perry, and I'm not saying anything about Katy Perry, but I was born Katheryn Hudson and I think
people are going to start seeing more of that, because I was terrified to show that, so I built this character that's still
me, but the exaggerated version," Perry says.
"You know, you have to gracefully learn how to transition. There's a time capsule version of me and it's been
four years. I've left my twenties surrendered to my thirties, learned a lot along the way, broke a couple of emotional
cycles and decided that I can be more myself."
