We knew the song was powerful, and we suspected it was about John Mayer.
But little did we know just how important and touching Unconditionally is for Katy Perry.
While talking about her sweet new song, Katy completely opened up about the two things that inspired her to create it. She revealed:
"Unconditionally was influenced by my boyfriend and also really influenced by Africa. I went to Madagascar and did a UNICEF trip that changed my life and gave me this song. It’s just a simple message about loving someone and accepting them and kind of driving at you don’t have to be so self-conscious, you don’t have to fear, because essentially, everybody has their stuff. Nobody comes stuff-free. Everybody has their things and you’re never going to be perfect, and accepting that and understanding that, especially in a relationship, it makes room for a real, genuine kind of love."
That is quite simply a gorgeous statement, and it really couldn't be more true!
We're so happy Katy has found this kind of love in her life and all around her.
John better know just how lucky he is to have her beautiful heart loving him Unconditionally.
