Katy Perry Didn't Want To Label Exes "Villains" On Prism
Star reveals she's never been tempted to write a 'screw you' song...
Katy Perry has revealed that she didn't want to brand her ex-partners as "villains" on new album, Prism.
During an interview with Iggy Azalea - Perry confessed: "Well I never try to make people out to be villains, too much.There's a lot of empathy in my writing, even if there is pain and sadness.
"I think that I'm not always trying to point the finger. I think on this record, the whole Prism record, it's very self-reflective and you hear that I've kind of gone inside more so and looked at where I can make myself better, did a patchwork thing, rather than like, 'Screw you. You're crazy. F**k you'."
K-Pez continued: "There's one song on the record called 'It Takes Two,' which is about specifically that. Because it's really easy when relationships end to be like. 'That guy was a f**king douchebag'.
"But really if you laid it down, and you saw the whole span of the relationship, you saw that you were in love, you saw the intimate moments, you saw the pain, you saw all the emotions and you have to kind of say, 'Well, what responsibility can I take for myself in all of this?'"
Earlier this week, the 29-year old premiered the video for her new single Unconditionally, which sees the star singing the emotional ballad in the snow.
