In an interview with People Magazine, the singer continued, ‘Now having a child myself, I understand that it’s so important to play. This is a continued extension of who I am.’ Katy gave birth to her daughter, Daisy, in August and she even visited the Pokémon Café during a trip to Japan in 2019.
She shared, ‘I was pregnant when I was there actually, little did I know! It was amazing. It brought up all these wonderful childhood memories. I’ve been going to Japan since I was 17 every year and have always really loved everything that’s been created there.’
Katy also shared how she always related most to Pikachu, ‘I’m really attached to the hero. I know there are others in the game, but I just found Pikachu to be really cute,’ she says, ‘I understand the story of Pikachu. On the surface, you might just think I’m just cute, have a couple of cute songs, but if you dig deeper, you’ll realize ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ is not just a fun little song!’
Through her new partnership, Katy hopes to bring some light into 2021, ‘In this moment of unknown, there are dependable places and characters and institutions and people, and I hope I can be one of them,’
