A lot of people make choices [based on thinking] they won't have a career in five years. I know where I am; I know what I do is worth something and does not have an expiration date on it. I'm not making choices. In any capacity of my life, with any kind of endorsement, with any kind of product, out of fear."

Perry has also been extremely aware of how you can have the vision, but you need to work hard to be successful. "I spoke one time at a songwriting thing, and the kids were asking me questions about being an artist," she noted. "[I told them] all the costumes and the glitter and the glitz and glam is great, but if you don't have the talent, you just look like a freak."

Huffington Post conducted the 2013 interview with Perry.
