Perry: I have to be healthy on tour
Katy Perry says she has to eat healthily when she is on tour to keep fit for her gruelling working hours.
The 27-year-old singer - who was recently shown crying with exhaustion backstage on her world tour in her film Katy Perry: Part Of Me - makes sure she eats healthy food to give her energy.
Katy said: "Eating healthy is so important because I can't afford to get sick. When I was on the road, it was very important to eat a balanced a meal to make sure my energy was up for every two hour show.
"When I was on the road, I liked to have a light soup, a piece of grilled chicken, and some quinoa with grilled asparagus for dinner. I always need my daily vitamins, I love fresh-pressed juices. I also love snacks, but pick healthier options like veggies and hummus".
The I Kissed A Girl singer recently tweeted about how much she loves healthy snack popchips, and has now been invited to become the ambassador for the brand.
The pop princess admits being in the public eye means she feels pressure to keep in shape.
Katy said: "I feel the best about my body once I get into a routine of waking up early, starting my day with a workout, meditating and getting fresh air.
"I don't usually like to get my workouts by going to a traditional gym. I love being outdoors, and prefer to go on hikes or ride my bike."
