American singer-songwriter Katy Perry recently opened up about motherhood, saying her daughter Daisy Dove is "everything" she was ever looking for.
As per People magazine, in a cover story interview for LuisaViaRoma's first-ever issue of LVR Magazine, the 36-year-old songstress opened up about her approach to parenting 1-year-old Daisy Dove, whom she shares with actor Orlando Bloom.
"I was grateful for the opportunity to be present. I mean, I still would have been, but I would have had FOMO scratching at me just a hot bit," she told the outlet about welcoming her daughter during the pandemic.
"Not really, though. She is everything I was ever looking for," Perry added.
Even as Bloom shoots for the second season of Carnival Row in Prague, Perry told the outlet she tries to be around him as much as possible. She serves as a judge on American Idol in the States.
"We visit him a lot, and I love carrying her on me or going for walks all day with the stroller," she said.
Perry added, "She points at things and says 'da,' to which I say, 'yes, that is a cat,' or 'that is a tree.'"
Perry described her baby as "adaptable and happy," making life easier for the singer.
"Her schedule fluctuates. In the beginning, I worried about a schedule but decided I won't be that mom. All that matters is that everyone is happy," she said, adding that she loves having the "opportunity to do (parenting) in a way that one hopes it was done for them, maybe better. I don't know if anyone gets it right."
But although it may seem she's always doing it all, "You have to be smart and exercise the word 'no,'" she said, later adding, "Everything I do, I give it an overwhelming 100%."
As for what's on Katy + Daisy's playlist, she reveals that she often plays older soul music featuring tracks from Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder. "I thought, 'OMG, she doesn't (even) know new music!'" she said.
During the interview, the singer also opened up about her love for fashion and style, including her own shoe and handbag line.
"It's exciting to play the high and low fashion game, to pair my shoes with different designer looks like Proenza Schouler, Valentino, and Prada. I don't discriminate just because it's a label," she said of her photoshoot for the magazine.
"I had a really fun time at the shoot. Fashion is expression, presentation, peacocking, beauty. Everybody loves beauty. It's just the beginning for Katy Perry Collections," she added.
Perry is also gearing up for the start of her Las Vegas residency titled Play, which kicks off on Dec. 29 at The Theatre, Resorts World. (ANI)
