On Friday, Katy Perry admitted to Jay Leno that she deprived herself of coffee and alcohol for three whole months in preparation for her July Vogue cover:
“I did a lot of my own prepping. I kind of went on a cleanse… I did a lot of stuff like vitamins and supplements, I changed my coffee to green tea, I didn’t drink any alcohol for three months. So I was really in the zone and just really wanted to be glowing for that cover.”
Hence why we don’t blame her for not looking very happy to front Elle UK’s September issue, which was just released this morning.
Despite the monochrome Dolce & Gabbana plaid and heavy kohl liner, Katy definitely doesn’t look like she’s been living a vice-filled rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle over the months leading up to this shoot either. As far as nutrition goes anyway: According to the headline her temptations are now boys, namely Robert Pattinson, Russell Brand, and John Mayer. If we had to forgo coffee for three months we’d definitely opt for Robert Pattinson over green tea as a substitute.
The accompanying shoot promises Perry in more Winter 2013 from Prada, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Alexander Wang and Sacai. That should help raise her spirits, but we’ll find out for sure when the issue hits stands this Wednesday.
