Katy Perry says moving to Kentucky reminded her of ‘Hollywood isn’t America’ – NBC New York

Katy Perry is enjoying her new “bubble” away from the City of Light. The “Firework” singer revealed she moved to Kentucky earlier this year and it was “a pretty amazing experience.”

“I live, like, in Kentucky and I’ve been living for almost a month now and it’s been a pretty amazing experience,” Perry, 37, told Chelsea Handler in a new episode of her “Dear Chelsea” podcast. “Because it reminds you that Hollywood is not America.”

Perry noted that leaving Los Angeles has helped her “understand people better,” Handler adding that it’s “nice to get out of what you know is normal and your reality.”

Perry – who shares almost 2-year-old daughter Daisy with fiancé Orlando Bloom – explained that they live in a “bubble” which is “completely opposite” to Hollywood.

“You’ve been in different bubbles, because you grew up in a bubble,” Handler told the “American Idol” judge. “You grew up super religious and it’s a bubble. Then you got into this industry, it’s another bubble. Right?”

Perry replied, “Well, it’s an anthropological study of humans.”

Elsewhere in the candid chat, which also included producer Catherine Law, Perry explained how motherhood was the “best decision I’ve ever made in my entire life.”

She shared that she wasn’t “very motherly” growing up but would always be the “mom” of her friend group. Perry said seeing Bloom with his son, Flynn, who he shares with ex-wife Miranda Kerr, “influenced” his desire to become a mother.

“Something inside of me said, ‘You thirties, that man is nice. Gotta breed,’ she joked, later adding, ‘My daughter has reshaped my life, my perspective and gave me a love I never had before.

The pop star also shared a glimpse of her relationship with the British actor. The two started dating in 2016, before going their separate ways in 2017. A year later, they rekindled their romance and got engaged in February 2019.

“Your partner usually sees your best and a lot of your worst sides because they’re there to be your mirrors,” she said while giving a listener advice on relationships, adding that she and Bloom follow a couples therapy. “And we love it because it keeps us in sync and the resentment can get really strong when you’re both working hard and, God bless, successful people in the spotlight.”

She added that when they want to be ‘normal’ people in a domestic setting with their child and therapy has helped them.
