LONDON: 33-year-old singer Katy Perry wants to move into acting.
Katy – who is dating Orlando Bloom and was previously married to Russell Brand – has enjoyed a successful pop career over the last decade but she’s now ready to branch out and do something else.
Speaking to Nova DJ Kent ‘Smallzy’ Small, she said: ‘’It’s time for me to live my life on my own schedule and terms, so that may look like doing some kind of other class, or like maybe I’d like to make a film in the future finally, doing a kind of separate thing.’’ The ‘Bon Appetit’ singer is particularly keen to work on something light hearted and could see herself in a best friend role. She added: ‘’I would do a comedy.
‘’But it has to be in the vein of a Kristen Wiig or a Jenny Slate, super dry, a little bit of a dark comedy, like a ‘Bridesmaids’ girl, like number four.’’ Meanwhile, Katy recently admitted she has suffered with ‘’situational depression’’ and reached a low last year when her album ‘Witness’ didn’t receive as positive a reception as she’d expected.
She said: ‘’I had bouts of situational depression. My heart was broken last year because, unknowingly, I put so much validity in the reaction of the public, and the public didn’t react in the way I had expected to. Which broke my heart.’’
