Hollywood stars constantly promote a hedonistic and materialistic lifestyle.
But some superstars escape from the herd.
And one pop superstar uttered two words that made feminists’ heads explode.
Pop diva Katy Perry has amassed 109 million Twitter followers, and roughly $330 million in net worth.
But in spite of all of her fame, wealth, and accolades, Perry said that becoming a mother was the “best decision” she’s ever made among all her accomplishments.
During a podcast interview with comedian Chelsea Handler, Perry confessed that motherhood was “the best decision I’ve ever made in my entire life…“A lot of BS just falls away. Stuff that you thought was important was really never important. Your family really starts to become first.”
Perry and her partner, actor Orlando Bloom, welcomed a baby girl named Daisy in 2020.
She also revealed that she’s moved to Kentucky to get out of the Hollywood bubble.
Perry continued, “I’m living in Kentucky and I have for almost a month now and that’s quite an amazing experience because it reminds you that Hollywood is not America…And you need to remember that. Because I think you can understand people better…They’re living in a bubble of sorts. We’re living in a bubble. Our bubbles are completely opposite…it’s interesting.”
We're star-struck! @katyperry visited the Louisville Zoo while she was in town. Our little penguin, Simon, and sloth, Sebastian, got an upclose encounter.
Katy also took a stroll through Wild Lights! If you visited in April, you may have been walking along with a true pop icon.❤️ pic.twitter.com/9y7suvgyTb

Hollywood celebrities tend to have a skewed sense of reality, so getting out of Los Angeles probably helped her gain perspective on the world.
The entertainment industry is often glamorized, but the behind-the-scenes struggles of real life rarely ever get shown.
In Perry’s documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me, the pop star gave a slice of her personal life.
The film included one gut-wrenching sequence where she was going through a divorce with comedian and actor Russell Brand, and she had to go onstage despite being an emotional wreck.
Money and fame cannot buy happiness, and Perry is lucky to be figuring that out at a young age.
Motherhood is often downplayed and sometimes even stigmatized in modern leftist culture.
Becoming a “girl boss” and “leaning in” are promoted, while the experience of becoming a mother and having a family are put on the back burner.
Even fortunate entertainers have short-lived careers in the industry.
When the bright lights go out, money and fame alone will not be enough.
The pandemic forced a lot of people to come to the realization that Perry came to when she chose motherhood.
