Katy Perry is starting her own record label, she says, in order to "avoid the things that take away any fighting chance for an artist to have financial success."
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Perry contends that the decision was not an easy one but the right one:
"My frugal business manager, God bless him, was sweating and I was like, 'Please trust me.' That's kind of been the mantra I've said to everyone my whole life: 'Trust me, I have a vision.'"
Currently, the "Teenage Dream" hitmaker has not decided on a name for her label.
In the interview, Perry also spoke on her split from Russell Brand, saying she has had to learn to divide her personal from her public life:
"I had to smack myself across the face and say, 'These problems are my problems, they are not my audience's problems, learn to separate that.'"
