AP: Do you worry about getting overexposed?
Perry: I worry if it’s not real. I’m OK if everything is honest and truthful and relatable. If it’s fabricated and ill-motived, it’s not good. But I don’t try and involve myself in that type of stuff.
AP: What will change in your next phase in terms of balancing your public and private life?
Perry: I’ll continue to try and balance like a circus act. And I will just fight to always tell the truth. Even if it’s difficult.
