Like her BFF Rihanna, Perry is often criticized for her risqué clothes and behavior despite her young fan base. But she realizes you can't make everyone happy and she has "no regrets" for not living up some people's ideas of a role model. "I'm not going to be everything to everyone," Perry, 27, tells the magazine. "I can't tell a person when it's time for them to have sex. Or if they should have a cigarette … But I try to live my life with a lot of integrity, and, hopefully, that sends a message."

Another thing Perry has no regrets about is her short-lived marriage to comedian Russell Brand, the demise of which was caught on film for her concert movie, "Katy Perry 3D: Part of Me." Despite the heartbreak, she still believes in love — but any possible suitors will have to work hard for her affections. "I'm a woman who likes to be courted — strongly," explains Perry, who has been linked John Mayer and Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Akroyd post-Brand. As for walking down the aisle again, she adds, "Never say never, I guess you'd say. I'll let love take the lead on that."
