She’s known as one of the most energetic and bubbly entertainers in pop music, but Katy Perry has confessed that away from the limelight she has a quiet presence.
In a season 3 preview clip of “The Drew Barrymore Show” released on Monday, Perry is shown discussing new music, finding balance and being a businesswoman.
“Sometimes I think, like I’m just too much,” Barrymore, 47, says during the chat, which will air on Tuesday’s season premiere on Global. “I’m just too much. How do you be so much without feeling like you’re too much?”
“Balance,” responds Perry, who welcomed her first child, Daisy, with Orlando Bloom in 2020. “I think obviously there’s an onstage persona and I save a lot of that energy for being onstage and I dial it up.”

“I really love this show that I put on,” she continues about her residency show “Play” at Resorts World Las Vegas. “It’s my favourite show. It’s bringing the most joy. I’ll probably go and make another record soon and write it and tour the world after this, which will be so great, but I’m pretty even offstage. I am more like business woman – I don’t talk a lot offstage.”
Perry, 37, goes on: “I am very kind of like an observer. I am an observer and I really save my energy for when I have to go and turn it on because when I turn it on, it’s up to 11, girl!”
In addition to “Play” in Las Vegas, Perry’s also gearing up for performing at True Colors Festival in Japan in November.
Elsewhere in the interview, Perry speaks about her engagement to Bloom, insisting a marriage is very much still in the cards.
“I mean there is still a plan, but the location is challenging.”
As Barrymore points out Perry’s parents got married in Las Vegas, she responds: “I know but I love a big celebration. I am all about big, fun, exotic, great celebrations. So, hopefully, soon.”
Perry also discusses becoming a mom to daughter Daisy, telling Barrymore: “I went and did so much work before [I became a mom] because I was nervous some stuff I had from my past and I wanted to kind of clear that. I wanted to change all of the energy and Orlando and I were very intentional on having Daisy. We had decided, it was no accident. It was time.”
As the host says, “Daisy is the happiest name,” Perry gushes of the flower and her baby: “She embodies it. It’s my favourite thing I’ve ever done. Most fulfilling, the most love. I’ve always had like an, ‘Am I enough?’ hang-up. ‘Will I be enough, or did I just get lucky?’
“I work so hard sometimes to prove I am enough. And it comes from a lot of childhood stuff and I’ve always had a challenging time with love and relationships and maybe not being attracted to the right type of people, sometimes. And I wanted to be attracted to someone that was kind, consistent, showed up for me and so I did all the work to do that and it’s paid off.”
