Katy Perry admits she finds it a bit “weird” that she has the most Twitter followers.
The ‘Dark Horse’ hitmaker – who has 92.5 million followers on the micro blogging site – has revealed she writes all her own tweets, which she says is easy for people to tell because she has “horrible grammar” or makes typos.
She said: “You get dopamine every time you post something and you get that reaction. But it’s weird being the person that has the most followers. I know what that animal is and it’s a dance, you know? I do all my posting which you can tell because sometimes I have horrible grammar or typos or I post late.
“In the beginning you’re like, ‘I have this ambition and no one can tell me no’ and you get it, right? Then there’s this period where everyone has a say and then the whole world has a say. Everyone’s talking, everyone’s chatting then you’re, like, ‘Whoa, s**t. Did I start these conversations or am I part of the convo or what is this?’ So it does like seep into a slow drip and at a certain point if you don’t cut it off it will eat you alive. Or you cut if off and you get it back. I am no longer hanging onto the rocket and riding for dear life. I’m standing and surfing the rocket. I got on top of it. I’m riding it like a f***ing cowboy at a rodeo now.”
And the 31-year-old singer has praised her family and friends for “keeping her grounded”.
She told Women’s Wear Daily: “It’s a trust your gut thing and it’s not really steered me that wrong. I’ve always been very in tune with my intuition. Thankfully and I’ve got great family and friends that keep me grounded. It’s all about balance because to me this whole career, or this opportunity, is a total inhuman experiment. I feel like most people don’t survive it.
“They either lose their mind or they die. Sometimes I feel like I’m in a burning car and everybody’s just watching and eating popcorn and I have to figure out how to safely get out and have grace and balance. It’s about how I can best express myself and not get lost in all the noise.”
