Katy Perry "never really truly knew about unconditional love" until daughter's birth

The singer said "nothing can prepare you" for such love.

Katy Perry has revealed she "never really truly knew about unconditional love" until her daughter Daisy Dove Bloom was born.

In an interview with Variety for their Power of Women issue, the singer spoke about how her one-year-old daughter taught her what unconditional love truly is.

"I never really truly knew about unconditional love," she shared. "Obviously my mother has that for me, but I didn't really experience it in the first-person until I had my child.

"And that was just a whole 'nother level. I think I see through the eyes of a child — like my life and my art always feels playful — so it's amazing to be able to relate to kids even in your deep 30s.

"...I think, yes, some of my previous work with kids and being an entertainer to kids as well has prepared me for motherhood, but nothing can prepare you for that wave of unconditional love."

Katy, who is gearing up for a Las Vegas residency at the end of the year, further elaborated on how her life has changed since becoming a mother.


"As a new mom, those first six weeks are like, 'What?' It's just the biggest life change ever," she said. "You're responsible for someone's well-being that can't even hold their head up.

"It's a real shift, and you become not No. 1 on the call sheet. And it's the best."

Katy, who shares Daisy with Orlando Bloom, also opened up about how her own mother is finding the experience of her daughter having a daughter.

"She loves Daisy. She's such a great G.G," she said, which must be the glam celeb version of nana. "And now she's got four grandkids, three girls and one boy. Each of my siblings has at least one. So she's loving it, and she's very present. It's amazing."

"Children are such a gift. I get why people have been doing this for eons and keep doing it," she continued. "I get why it's so popular."
