Katy Perry Tells 'Harper's Bazaar' What She's Learned From Her Past Loves

Katy Perry gets up close and personal on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s October 2014 issue, on newsstands September 23.

Here’s what the 29-year-old superstar had to share with the mag:

On what she’s learned from past relationships: “What I’ve learned is that if you don’t have the foundation of self-love first, you really have nowhere to pull love from to give it away. I had to learn about taking care of myself before I could take care of others. I want to mommy everyone. I want to take care of them. I want to save them, and I forget myself in the meantime. I learned that through therapy.”

On her love/hate with the Internet: “When I do these interviews, a lot of these clips people pull out are like, ‘Katy Perry doesn’t want a man to have babies.’ I’m like, ‘I didn’t say that. I just said, I’m good.’ Why am I a baby machine? Why can’t I be a mogul? I want to have a baby, sure, but I want to have a career. I want to have a record label. I want to have an incredible tour. So I’m going to have all of those things. Let’s talk about that. It’s like, get off my ovaries, okay? I’ll do it in time.”

On where she meets guys: “Well, I’m not really on the street. It’s usually just through friends of friends. We have a lot of dinner parties. I’m definitely not on Tinder, even though I joke about it.”
