Katy Perry explains why she's taking a break from music, calls boyfriend Orlando Bloom a 'great anchor'

“Well, I knew what I wanted to do when I was 9 years old, so everything else became secondary to that,” she told Footwear News. “I didn’t really pay attention to anything besides my craft — which is great, and I love it. I love making music, I love writing. But I don’t feel like I’m a part of a game anymore; I just feel like I’m an artist. I don’t feel like I have to prove anything, which is a freeing feeling.”
