Katy Perry’s Billboard Cover Leaves Us CERTAIN That She’s Taking Pretty Pills (PHOTO)

Katy Perry's Billboard cover is an unfair dose of gorgeous.

Katy Perry is LITERALLY GLOWING. Like, glow stick territory.

So, here’s the understatement of the century: Compared with Katy Perry, EVERYONE ELSE IS STRAIGHT BASIC! Have you EVER in the history of all your celeb stalking seen a real-life human being glow in the way that Katy is on Billboard’s latest cover? Nope, YOU HAVE NOT! See how the “Roar” singer has managed to achieve that oh-so-elusive “I just came from the beach, but my hair isn’t salt-damaged!” look? Oh, and that dewy fresh skin! Ugh, Katy is so un-basic, it hurts.

Somehow, the Billboard reporter who conducted the interview managed to remain conscious in the face of such beauty to ask some pretty on point questions. Namely, the “Dark Horse” discussed her newly empowered sound, her forthcoming Prism (out Oct. 22) and delivered the #PRAISE-worthy news that the album’s second single will be “Unconditionally.”

Additionally, Katy chatted about all the pukey-cute stuff she does with boyfriend John Mayer: “We’ll be in bed, and he’ll be doing the crossword puzzle. Every night, he tries to finish it in under 10 minutes. When he puts his mind to something, he really gets it done very well. I always ask for his help.” #Dawwww

So, there you have it, ladies and gents! The same lady who gets to share a plush bed with John Mayer, also naturally glows like a glow stick, which is a pretty hard pill to swallow when we can’t even snag a date off of OkCupid. But, DUH, we’re happy for you Katy! Mazel tov on being the least basic human on the planet.
