Katy Perry talked to Elle magazine about love after divorce, the direction her career is heading, and the pressures of being a role model -- all while sporting a sophisticated new look for the high-fashion mag's September issue.

Will Katy find love again?

"I obviously have a lot to say right now," she said. "I'm a woman who likes to be courted -- strongly. Never say never, I guess you'd say. I’ll let love take the lead on that."

Is it time for a career change?

"I love what I do, and when I don't love what I do, I'll make a change," she said. "I can't be the candy queen forever."

Is she a role model? Kinda

"I have no regrets," she said. "I'm not going to be everything to everyone. I can't tell a person when it's time for them to have sex. Or if they should have a cigarette... But I try to live my life with a lot of integrity, and, hopefully, that sends a message."

Katy is experiencing a sort of metamorphosis since her split from her short-term hubby Russell Brand. Her career is at a high and she's been seen out and about with a new man or two. Looks like this Katy Kat has landed on her feet.
