Katy Perry: "I admire Rihanna, she's done it well"

THE 'Rise' hitmaker is impressed by the 'We Found Love' singer for having a "great eye and ear" and has praised her work with the fashion industry.

She said: "Who do I admire? Probably who I'm following on Instagram. I think Rihanna has done it well.

"She has such a great eye and ear and she definitely has that foresight. Her relationships with Puma and Dior and whatever is coming next, feels like she's a pusher of her industry.

"With Beyoncé and Rihanna it's very obvious they know what they are doing and you can see that they are micromanaging as well. They are multitaskers.

"I love what Charlotte Tilbury has done. I'm a really big fan of this girl Isamaya who does these makeup creations that are like art pieces. I really want to work with her in the future.

"I think Jessica Alba is pretty cool in the way she is doing her Honest brand because now we have an affordable choice for organic and babies and everyone is having the conversation about health and what are ingesting.

"I think she's gonna do really well with that."

And the 31-year-old singer also opened up about her "interesting relationship with fashion".

She added to Women's Wear Daily: "I've had such an interesting relationship with fashion. They don't know what to make of me because in the beginning years I think I was a parody of fashion and I would always lean more toward personality or emotional pieces, things that would say, 'larger than life'.

"It's a lot of the stuff today that's really popular in youth culture - colorful, bright, crystaled, glittered, bedazzled. It's all personality pieces because everyone feels like an individual with something to offer ... I think five years ago it was more about label and price and now it's about personality."
