Katy Perry recently debuted a new line of shoes called Katy Perry Footwear. She collaborated with Hong Kong-based fashion company Global Brands Group to create the shoes, which will retail for $59-$299. The pop star-turned-designer cites Charlotte Olympia, Sophia Webster, and Kurt Geiger as her fashion inspirations for the designs. Perry's footwear collection will reportedly be available in Spring of 2017.
To promote the line, she gave an interview in which she also discusses her upcoming studio album.
"It's very colorful, very funny, very tongue-in-cheek. I have a heel that is based on one of my trips to Cuba, and the heel is actually a cigar."

"Last night I was in the studio, I'm just deep in the writing process. It takes a bit of time for me because I have to have those experiences and then write about them. I have to digest what I'm seeing and recycle it and give my perspective on it."
"I'm working with a lot of unexpected writers and producers and … that's bringing out a lot of different things sonically. Even when I was working with my go-to producers, I'd always push them to play me a beat that was reserved for Three 6 Mafia or something like that ... I know exactly how to write a lyric over that because my strengths are melody and lyrics. I'm putting myself in unexpected situations and that is breeding a lot of new color."
"I had Panda Express for dinner last night. I was really craving orange chicken … I'm in the middle of the recording process so I'm like maybe I need to get that body back. I've been eating really well for breakfast and lunch, but I'm like, 'Ah, that orange chicken glaze!'"
"I go to therapy, I don't get excessive on the substance … it's difficult in this industry, you're holding on for dear life. You feel like you're riding a rocket and now I'm not holding on for dear life ... now I'm surfing. I'm feeling good."
"I think I was put on this earth to lift people up and elevate people and do that through my messages."
