Alicia Keys inspires Katy Perry to make US anthem
London: Singer Katy Perry said she wanted to make an anthem for US after she heard Alicia Keys` song ‘Empire State of Mind’.
"I heard `Empire State of Mind` and I love that song. There`s been, you know, `California Love` and there`s been `California Girls` by the Beach Boys, which is probably one of my favourites and I just thought, how perfect to kind of take that idea and give it my spin," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.
Perry insists her relationship with fiance Russell Brand has boosted her confidence and she no longer worries about what people think of her.
"It`s weird, you know, when you fall in love and have someone that really kind of supports you, you stop really worrying about like, all this make-up you have to wear or what everybody thinks about you, because the person that you love, loves you back," she added.
