Katy Perry says she will never be caught stumbling drunk out of a bar – because she has to work too hard to maintain her pop career. The singer insists her life is too busy to spend time boozing, and she regularly works 13-hour days in the studio or on tour.
The ';California Gurl' is adamant she has to strive to keep ahead of her pop rivals, "You have to bust your a** at this which is why you don't find me getting s**tfaced in bars that much. It's so intense, it's like you catch a rocket and you're hanging on for dear life and you're like, ';Go!'"
She continues on her second album and comparing the music industry to stripper film Showgirls, "The second record I'm more buckled in because, God, how many times do you see people slump on their sophomore record? Nine out of 10? But I'm still working, like, 13-hour days, five, six days a week and singing on top of it. And knowing that there's someone right behind me, ready to go, ready to push me down the stairs, just like in Showgirls."
