Katy Perry did an interview for the June issue of Vanity Fair in what seems like an attempt to prove to her detractors that there is more to her than her outward appearance. As if that point wasn’t made aptly enough with a cover featuring her tits spilling out all over the place, here are a few excerpts from the interview that can only be described as nuggets of dumb:

On not knowing how vegetables work at all:
My career is like an artichoke…People might think that the leaves are tasty and buttered up and delicious, and they don’t even know that there’s something magical hidden at the base of it.

On her parents’ amazingly low expectations for their children:
They’re excited about [my success]. They’re happy that things are going well for their three children and that they’re not on drugs. Or in prison.

On her big, wide cultural sensitivity:
I’m open to possibility…. My sponge is so big and wide and I’m soaking everything up and my mind has been radically expanded. Just being around different cultures and people and their opinions and perspectives. Just looking into the sky.

On the apex of her career:
I already know my future evolution, where I’m going to go. I mean, I’m touring in fucking Indonesia, for crying out loud.

The additional photo set is Katy hawking her new perfume because as we all know, the pinnacle of self-awareness and enlightenment = brand synergy. I’m pretty sure Gandhi said that.
