"I thought it was important to show everything in between," the singer says during an appearance on Ellen today. "I think sometimes people think that we're perfect, and we know we're not perfect, at all."
Perry adds, "I think it's important to start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dreams, you always have to be perfect or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world. So that's why I decided to put everything into the film. In the most tasteful way."
Meanwhile, E! News confirmed on Monday that Perry was once again single after breaking up with Florence + the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.
