Perry continued, “It was a song called ‘Ocean Eyes,’ and it was only a blonde girl. And I used to be like, ‘Meh, boring.’”

She then joked, “Don’t let this hit the web.”

She goes on to hug the younger pop star, adding, “Congrats, I’m so happy with you. I desired to say, that is going to be wild for 10 years. In case you ever wanna talk… ’cause it is a weird ride.”
