The cover girl for the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, Ms. Katy Perry, says that among her many talents is the ability to bounce back from a breakup like a boss.
She means with men, of course, but that should serve her well in the current Taylor Swift-Katy Perry feud. No sense in wasting time on the past, is there?
"What I've learned is that if you don't have the foundation of self-love first, you really have nowhere to pull love from to give it away," the 29-year-old says.
"I had to learn about taking care of myself before I could take care of others. I want to mommy everyone. I want to take care of them. I want to save them."
"I forget myself in the meantime. I learned that through therapy."
Characterizing herself as "open," Perry says she has "less time for bulls--t" these days, and in partners, "I look for the same characteristics: a sense of humor."
"Someone who makes me laugh off the charts ... someone who is sensitive, someone who loves and understands music, and who is really smart."
