"It's kind of like coming down from a high," Perry says.

"I just wanted to tell a story about myself going through this journey," Perry says.

"In this music video I came out at the other end learning a lesson and feeling strong enough to get back out on that stage," Perry says.

"I think it's important for people to see, and young kids to see, you don't have to be perfect to achieve your dreams," Perry says.

"I'm going through all these different set changes and someone has to lead me through that and guide me," Perry says.

"In my young childhood I was sheltered and I was supposed to fit in a box of what my family wanted to be," Perry says.
