"If you don't want to sing along," Katy Perry demanded on Thursday night (July 24), "then now is your time to leave." Positioned at the vertex of a triangular stage and swiveling her head in order to see her thousands of fans, Perry made this declaration three songs in to her Prismatic world tour set list, with two No. 1 smashes ("Roar" and "Part of Me") and a No. 2 hit ("Wide Awake") already under he belt. The 29-year-old spent the first movement of the lavish pop spectacle with her voice barely audible, the shrieks of tween girls bouncing off the barriers of Brooklyn's Barclays Center and drowning out everything aside from the steady thwack of the percussion. By the time her proper performance in Brooklyn had ended, Perry had rattled through a dozen Top 5 singles, flexing her hit-making muscles while presenting a stage show worth the many, many screams.
Compared to other pop music arena shows currently running, Perry's Prismatic tour is the most colorful, literally and figuratively. Neon props checkered the stage for nearly two hours on Thursday night, from the glow-in-the-dark jump ropes used during "Roar" to the inflatable convertible driven during "This Is How We Do," from the paint-dripping video montage that introduced "Teenage Dream" to the glow-sticks encompassing the edges of the first of Perry's many outfits, technicolor light bookending her bare midriff.

Katy Perry Talks Weed, Aliens, Her Virginity and More Pop star opens up in a revealing new interview
Since releasing Prism this past October, Katy Perry has been consistently in the news. Maybe not at the same level as during the "I Kissed a Girl" days, but, to cite just a few instances, she irked some with her AMA performance, got career advice from Stevie Nicks and recently announced a large North American tour. And in the new issue of GQ, Perry is profiled for a cover story wherein she opens up about her thoughts on many news-worthy subjects, including sex, drugs and religion. Here are the best bits:
See Where Katy Perry's 'Roar' Ranks on Our 100 Best Songs of 2013
On smoking pot: "I can't do that stuff. I'd be like in the corner: 'Are you trying to kill me?!'"
On geishas: "Geishas are basically, like, the masters of loving unconditionally."
On what she dreamed about when she was 11: "I lay on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, "God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can't see my feet when I'm lying down?"
On how she got paid for her early performances: "I'd go to the farmers' market in Santa Barbara, and I'd put out my guitar case, and I'd test out these little ditty songs that I would write, and I would get a couple of avocados, a bit of pistachios, and, like, fifteen bucks. That was a lot of money for me."
On Jeff Buckley's Grace, which was playing when she lost her virginity: "I love that record so much."
On the afterlife: "I do not believe God is an old guy sitting on a throne with a long beard … I don't believe in heaven and hell as a destination."
On plastic surgery: "I've never had any plastic surgery. Not a nose, a chin, not a cheek, not a tit. So my messages of self-empowerment are truly coming from an au naturel product."
On being new age-y: "I see everything from a spiritual lens. I believe in a lot of astrology. I believe in aliens."
On how she helped Obama's re-election: "I might have won Wisconsin for him. Actually, I didn't do too much, but he called on me a couple of times. Which was very nice."
