Katy Perry Opens Up About Dealing With The Title Of The World's Most Hated Celebrity And How She Handles It

In the world of fame, where the spotlight shines brightest, Katy Perry certainly understands the highs and lows of stardom. It's not always glitz and adoration; sometimes, the love can turn into criticism. Katy, likening fame to a wild beast that both loves and attacks, has experienced the tumultuous ride of being hailed as the most disliked celebrity globally.
Through the ebb and flow of public opinion, Perry has mastered the art of resilience and shares her journey of navigating the challenges that come with the title of the world's most criticized celebrity.

#1. The Other Side Of Fame

Katy Perry is undoubtedly the face of the 2010s music scene. The singer has become one of the best-selling music artists of all time — her songs have broken several records — and Katy has been on lists of the highest-earning women in the music industry for several years in a row.

However, all of these accolades are often associated with attention. And, according to Perry, being always in the limelight is quite difficult. When she and her husband divorced, many paparazzi and regular people felt free to make changes in her life.

“I’m tired of being famous already! But I’m not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do,” Katy explained. She also dislikes the idea that her fans want to admire her rather than see her as a normal person. When she meets her fans, she tries to be friendly and sympathetic, but when they see her, they start weeping, and instead of talking, Perry has to pacify them.

It's said that the boundary between hatred and love is quite thin. Over the years, the vocalist has undergone both internal and outward transformation. And now Katy's harshest detractors are the same people who once idolized her. This took place after the publication of her album Witness.

Her fans refused to embrace the singer's updated appearance. This hatred became an eye-opener to Perry, who had to figure out the other side of fame, “People don’t let people grow. They just want a time capsule. And they want them to be one thing. And we have to start reimagining that.”

There are also some famous people among Perry's haters who were formerly her pals. Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Calvin Harris, and Lady Gaga all made critical comments about Perry as a person and a vocalist.

As a result of all of this, the singer decided to significantly alter her lifestyle. She tried everything she could to avoid the limelight. Perry, for example, would wear the same tracksuit every day when she left her house. In this way, she rendered the paparazzi's profession obsolete, because who would pay for the same images again and over?

Perry eventually found a misfortune buddy with whom she could discuss her feelings. Sia was the name. Sia became a role model for Perry in terms of concealing her private life from prying eyes. Sia understands how to construct a protective barrier that prevents others from seeing her true nature. She urged Perry not to follow the crowd but to pursue her heart's calling.

#2. How To Deal With It

“I stopped Googling myself a long time ago, and I don’t read comments. So if I’m on social media, I post and ghost,” Perry said. She doesn’t let anyone judge her looks, her work, or her life. The singer leaves these things to her family, friends, and personal therapist.

To deal with stress, she drinks a cup of water straight after waking up and does morning meditation and yoga. The singer also remembers to take care of herself and makes time in her busy schedule for a massage, bike ride, or walk. Katy also appreciates fate every morning for everything she has got, with all of its benefits and drawbacks.


#3. She Keeps Her Main Purpose In Mind.

Even when it seems like the entire world is against her, Katy strives to remember why she works. She wouldn't be able to accomplish so much good for the world if she wasn't so well-known. Right now, the singer is devoting all of her time and energy to the Firework Foundation, which provides arts education to children from underserved communities.
This is only a small portion of Perry's humanitarian efforts. She helps children in Madagascar and Vietnam with food and education, builds juvenile shelters, and raises funds for those suffering from AIDS and cancer. The singer was awarded the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award in 2016 for her work with the world's most disadvantaged children. All of this would have been impossible without Perry's celebrity, which she had been battling for years.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom welcomed a daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom, in 2020. Katy now has one additional incentive to strike a suitable balance between herself and her celebrity. The singer desires that her child remain out of the spotlight. She simply wishes to embrace her new position.
In a recent interview, the star said that her life is now centered on her baby. She drives her to courses and tries to spend as much time as she can with Daisy. And when someone recognizes her while she’s with her daughter, she says, “Hi, nice to meet you. I care about my kid and take her to classes.”
