Katy Perry Opens Up About Being a Working Mother and Missing Milestones in Daughter’s Life “That Doesn’t Feel Good”

Every parent who works outside the home can understand how it feels to miss a key moment in your child’s life.

Katy Perry appeared on Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett’s “SmartLess” podcast recently and during the interview, the singer opened up about missing milestones in her daughter’s life.

“I am working a lot and I’ve always worked a lot. I’m kind of a matriarchal figure,” Perry said. “I have a wonderful nanny, but I don’t have a full-time nanny because I feel like if I had a full-time nanny then I would never be able to know how to care for my daughter like I’m meant to.”

“And so therefore, any day I get off, I’m just in mom mode,” she continued, adding, “Doesn’t matter if I’ve had a show that goes to 11 p.m. the night before, I’m waking up at six o’clock and we’re going to go and do breakfast and yes, I have the no sleep shakes.”

Perry shared that between her role as a judge on American Idol and Vegas Residency, she sometimes misses milestones in Daisy’s life.

“She’s 2, so she’s at that point where it’s like she’s saying new words every day and the other day she was just saying some words that I didn’t teach her and I was like, ‘D— it. That doesn’t feel good,’” Perry explained.

The singer added that during her Las Vegacy residency she can drop Daisy off at daycare and return home the next morning.
