KATY PERRY TALKS TO ELLE UK ABOUT LOVE, RIHANNA AND SAVING CELEBRITIES Strictly embargoed until Tuesday July 30, 00:01 September issue of ELLE UK - on sale 31st July 2013 July 29 2013. Katy Perry puts those Robert Pattinson rumours to rest and talks to ELLE UK's September issue, on sale July 31, about relationship boundaries and why her days of 'celebrity saving' are over. One of the highest-earning women in music, with a self-awareness and media savvy to rival Madonna, Katy is candid and friendly as she also talks to ELLE about 'challenging men' and her relationship with John Mayer, whom she describes as 'the love I thought I'd lost', the imminent release of her new album (to be announced shortly) and her new fragrance. In the accompanying ELLE shoot, Katy is sexy and sultry in photographs taken by Mariano Vivance and wears leading fashion designs from Louis Vuitton, Chloe Sevigny, Alexander Wang, Miu Miu to Prada. In a behind the scenes video, available at www.elleuk.com/elle-tv, Katy also talks about her fashion influences and shoot experience. Interview highlights: Katy Perry on texting Kristen Stewart about the Robert Pattinson rumours "I sent her a text message saying: "I know you've seen all this stuff but you know I would never disrespect you. I'm not that person. I'm just trying to be a friend to him but it is unfortunate that I do have a set of tits." On being attracted to 'challenging men' "The men I have gone for are challenging, yes, but they're also wildly intelligent and poetic. . . I'm not interested in taming anyone - I'm pretty wild myself." On learning from her break up with John Mayer in February "He pulled away. That was a big hello for me. I realised I could lose the person I loved and I had to deal with some things, issues I think a lot of women have. You can be strong in one aspect of your life but submissive in another. In relationships, it was hard for me to speak up and set boundaries. I think a lot of that was to do with the fear of loss." On her friendship with Rihanna and why she won't save celebrities anymore "I love her (Rihanna) and every time I see her, I'm reminded of the light that she has. There's a lot of dark in this business. I know a lot of people out there with the most detrimental entourages - they are the root of their demise. It's really unfortunate but you can't save these people. My days of celebrity saving are over."
