Katy Perry Revisits Blunt Bangs for ELLE September Cover

Katy Perry ELLE Cover

Katy Perry rocks an exotic, black and purple wig with blunt-cut bangs and smoldering smoky eyes on the September cover of ELLE, which is the mag’s biggest fashion issue of the year. The issue drops on Aug. 14, but the cover and some choice quotes are available now.

Of course, the subject of Perry’s take on romance came up, especially after her failed marriage to Russell Brand.

She said,”I obviously have a lot to say right now…I’m a woman who likes to be courted – strongly. Never say never, I guess you’d say. I’ll let love take the lead on that.” She’s still a romantic at heart, that Katy!

The ‘Wide Awake’ singer is also thrilled with the trajectory of her career. But she was quick to note that she will eventually grow and evolve, saying, “I love what I do, and when I don’t love what I do, I’ll make a change. I can’t be the candy queen forever.”

So we won’t always see her in watermelon-shaped dresses and wearing candy-as-attire for the entirety of her career. Although we do love the pale pink frock, sprinkled with sparkles, that she is wearing on her ELLE cover.

Perry is not a women with regrets. She said, “I have no regrets… I’m not going to be everything to everyone. I can’t tell a person when it’s time for them to have sex. But I try to live my life with a lot of integrity, and, hopefully, that sends a message.”

Amen, sister!
