The life of Katy Perry (34) has changed considerably since her relationship with Orlando Bloom (42). The singer says she has become a lot more mature, mainly because the actor already has an eight-year-old son from his previous marriage.

“That’s why I still dress like a child – to offer some contrast”

Katy has grown a lot and is very grateful for the influence of Orlando, which fell on its knees in February. “He is the sweetest man I have ever met”, she rejoiced in the Ellen DeGeneres talk show on Wednesday. “He motivates me spiritually, emotionally and physically.”

Her daily routine is also no longer the same. “I used to wake up at 11 a.m. and now I go to bed as a normal person at 10 p.m. and fall asleep right away.” Because Orlando’s son Flynn, who he had with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr, cannot be late for school, the singer has to set the alarm early. “It really made me more mature. I think this is becoming an adult. That’s why I still dress like a child – to offer some contrast.”
