“The Foo Fighters are not in Romagna since 1997, it’s time to get them back, but we need a crazy idea,” the Rockin’ 1000’s website explains. “We have to organize something that kicks ass worldwide and can be seen by Dave Grohl: We will ask one thousand rockers to play one of their songs, all together and at the same time.”

18 Things You Learn Following Katy Perry Around

Katy Perry performsvia Rolling Stone.

Here are a few exerpts from Brian Hiatt’s article in the most recent issue of Rolling Stone.  To read the full article click here.

She’s really into transcendental meditation.
“It’s something that’s with you for your whole life. You learn your mantra, it never leaves you, and it’s the deepest rest your brain gets. For people that are so creative and have this kind of creative faucet that never turns off – it just continues and continues – it can be a little exhausting. And, you know, with the continual responsibility of having 127 people on the road, and always being the point person for everything, my subconscious is going even when I’m sleeping. I’m dreaming about whatever I’m creating next, or relationships, or blah, blah, blah. So I’m never really off. And meditation is actually the one time I get to really reset.”

She’s not completely obsessed with topping the charts.
I’m not trying to ever duplicate what I did on Teenage Dream, because I could never. Prism is more about showing the variety I have as an artist, rather than always having a determined goal to go to Number One or whatever. I mean, it’s always nice, but that’s not always going to happen. And I don’t want to have to conform to try and do that. Like, I don’t want to have to play something I’m not to get that Number One or whatever. That’s not music. That’s math. And I don’t want to be that.”

She gets a lot of fashion cues from Tumblr.
“With Tumblr, it’s almost like when you go to a city, you have to know where to go to find the good stuff? And so I just started following these kind of random, actually these transvestite girls that were really cool. And then I started following this clothing stuff. And that’s where I get a lot of my style influence stuff, and that’s a lot of what the new video is influenced by. “This Is How We Do” is like, straight from the pages of Tumblr. Although the kids, the Tumblr kids – like, the Tumblr rats –  if they were to hear that actually coming out of my mouth, they would despise it.”

She’s not into fame.
“I never wanted to be famous. That’s a byproduct of what I do. Fame is truly a byproduct of the dream that I had. People want to be recognized for their work, but nobody wants to be famous for nothing. Fame is, I think, disgusting. And it’s really hard to separate your public life from your personal life. Useless fame is disgusting. I think if you’ve got a talent or something to offer, a creative thing to offer to the world, then I think that’s beautiful. But that famous for nothing thing is kind of gross. It’s a bummer. And, you know, I only ever just wanted to make music and be on stage and play, and offer up my perception of how I view the world, through the songs that I write. But then there’s a lot of different things that come with it, and I call them trade-offs. I can’t necessarily go downstairs and, like, touch the tree, but I can do a lot of other things.”
