Five months into new motherhood, the pop superstar Katy Perry is still figuring out how to balance all the demands in her busy career and family life. She’s taking one day at a time, finding balance and learning the lessons as she goes along and not being afraid to learn.
When she makes mistakes, she learns from them. Those moments of imperfection — because she doesn't believe in perfection — are really valuable to her. That's where growth comes. Six weeks after giving birth to her daughter Daisy Dove, Katy Perry was itching to give her latest hit, "Not the End of the World," an accompanying music video.
Still on maternity leave, the American Idol judge — who's partnering with Pokémon on a new music program in celebration of its 25th anniversary — called up pal Zooey Deschanel, whom Katy Perry was often mistaken for early in her career.
She was so happy being a mother, but there was an idea in the back of her head. Katy Perry knew that time marches on and now was the time so she reached out to her personally, and it was amazing. Zooey Deschanel showed up for her while she was on maternity leave.
As a pop star, it's all up to Katy Perry to create a schedule and balance, and Zooey Deschanel was totally down and thought it was fun, she truly believes that mothers are the most powerful beings on the planet, and when women get together and support each other, it's incredible.
