Katy Perry appears on Tuesday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where she talks about her upcoming album and tour, “Witness.” Watch the videos below!

During the interview, Perry speaks with DeGeneres about her recent break from music, which led to her latest record. “I did the Super Bowl a couple of years ago, then I did a big tour for two years for the last record. I was tired! I’m human. A human needed a rest,” she says. “I took October to June off, and then I started writing a record, I wrote over 40 songs. I now have 15 beautiful songs to represent this story that I want to share with the world. It comes out on June 9.”

On her new track, “Bon Appetit,” she tells DeGeneres, “Right now, you’re just seeing parts of the body of work, and that part is the sexually empowered and liberated part.” Perry continues, “I’m embracing my 30’s, I love being a woman. I love a consensual interaction. There is nothing wrong with that, we’re all animals.” And on the video itself for “Bon Appetit,” which involves Perry being cooked and served, she notes, “I just make these kooky videos. I have a laugh along the way, sometimes I like to pose a question, but most of the time I just like to lift people’s spirits.”

The superstar went on to talk about her upcoming tour, “Witness,” which kicks off on September 7 in Ohio. “I’m starting a tour, come and see it, it’s called ‘Witness.'” I just announced it yesterday,” Perry says. “It’s so exciting, because for the first time I am partnering up with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and not only will 1 dollar from each ticket sold be donated to Boys & Girls Clubs, I have 100 tickets, 50 for Boys & Girls Clubs and 50 for fans that they can actually earn by doing a medley of things, one of them becoming a volunteer at a Boys & Girls Clubs.” Watch the videos below!
