While talking to Hits Radio Breakfast about her new single “Daisies” that arrived today, Perry confirmed Swift would not be featured on her upcoming fifth studio album nicknamed KP5.
“No, it’s not correct. But the fans are definitely excited for something like that to happen in the future and I’m always open,” she said. “The fans are so fun. They do search far and wide for Easter eggs, and we do put them in our visuals and lyric videos and music videos and content that we create. But not everything is an Easter egg! A lot of things are just flowers!”
But here’s something that cropped up in the interview that fans might not have expected: Perry and Adele are next-door neighbors. “We live very close to each other, so close that… and we’re friendly and we’ve known each other for a long time,” the “Daisies” singer revealed. “I haven’t seen her in person since she’s been transforming herself because pre-quarantine, I was busy, she was busy, she’s making a record, I’m making a record and touring…. But I remember sometime last year, she just knocks on my door and comes in, I’m in my robe. It’s fun! She’s great, she’s very real.”
She continued telling the story of Adele’s unexpected, friendly visit: “The funny thing is, I’ve known her for a while, right? And I think a gal that was working for me at the time answered the door and she was like, ‘Adele is here.’ And I was still like sleeping, it was 11 o’clock or something like that. And I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll just get in my robe.’ And we just had a chat and a cuppa.”
As Perry waits on her neighbor’s next record and Rihanna‘s R9 that she masterfully trolls upset fans about, the mother-to-be remains patient for the arrival of her first baby with fiancé Orlando Bloom. But their unborn daughter already proved she’s bad to the bone by throwing up a middle finger during her sonogram.
In an interview with SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up yesterday (May 14), Perry theorized she might be chucking up the deuces, which she takes from her superstar father. “If you really look at it, it looks like maybe she’s giving me the peace sign, which would definitely be Orlando’s genetics. But the middle finger was super predominant, so… the middle finger’s my genes,” she teased.
