Katy Perry interview

We have five questions for singer Katy Perry at the Dubai Air Show 2015

1 How does it feel to have finished your Prismatic world tour?
I’m excited to take the rest of the year off. I’m looking forward to rejuvenating and not wearing make-up and having like 600 bobby pins in my hair.

2 You played the Dubai Airshow Gala. What do you love about it here?
Dubai is so crazy because it’s kind of like a well-mannered Vegas. It seems very forward-thinking with technology – those guys flying jet-packs alongside the Emirates plane.

3 How will you be spending Christmas?
My family and I don’t really exchange presents anymore. We just go on vacation together. There’s something really nostalgic about getting under the same roof, it’s like we’re teenagers again. We have a chef and we just eat, drink and pass out.

4 Any plans for 2016?
I don’t really have plans yet. I need to let myself be, and live life, and have my own kind of experiences to write good songs.

5 Do you have any New Year’s resolutions?
To care less about everything and just kind of stay true to myself.
