NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Katy Perry is getting ready to show another side of herself to the public in her new film, “Part of Me,” the 3-D documentary showing what it’s really like to walk in the pop star’s shoes.
“Well it’s a lot of different parts of me, this film, and some of them are, well they were difficult to put in — especially the ones of me with no makeup,” Katy laughed while speaking with Access Hollywood on Friday in New York City, ahead of her Fleet Week performance for the troops.
The pop superstar, who has had a slew of hits since she broke through with “I Kissed A Girl” in 2008, said the movie, which hits theaters on July 8, shows the hard work involved in her big, big career.
“I feel like it’s important for me, right now, to start, kind of, breaking down the stereotype that everyone that’s in this position is perfect, and that if you want to achieve your goals or your dreams that you have to be perfect or you have to be rich or you have to own this one thing,” Katy said. “I don’t think that’s how you get anywhere. I think it’s really just based on hard work, which you see a lot of it in this film, and talent, and I think people will feel like they are experiencing it through my eyes… like it’s from exactly my point of view.”
Katy added that “Part of Me” is dedicated to her loyal followers.
“A lot of people have a lot of ideas about me, but this is a film that I made for myself, for my fans… so that they can get the all-access pass,” she said. “And I’ve never been this revealing.”
