Perry has shown Twitter as much love as its shown her, as it's been one of her main forms of communication with her fans.

Twitter honored the "Swish Swish" singer, 32, with a celebratory post. Everybody's like, 'I could never tell my deepest, darkest secrets to anyone.' And we swallow them and we keep them and they become petrified.

JokesIt's no secret why Perry has amassed a 100 million Twitter followers: She's hilarious. She shared, "I used to be scared of intimacy, I used to use my sexualization as attention, I used to over sexualize myself because that was the only way I knew how". No matter the criticism she receives, the singer believes in the new chapter of her life. "I feel ashamed that I would have those thoughts, I feel that low and that depressed", she said in the live-streamed therapy session. During The Late Late Show segment "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts" Katy also gushed, "They're all incredible lovers and I would have sex with all of them when I get out of this place!" "With such a view into her world, fans engaged with Katy through live YouTube comments, asking wide-ranging questions from the meaning behind her new songs to who was pictured in the frames in the bathroom", a spokesman adds.
