Katy Perry has come clean that she sometimes uses an autocue (teleprompter) while on stage for the instances where she forgets a lyric.
She tells Perez Hilton, “I do (forget) tiny, tiny (song sections), or I change a word. I do use it, now that I have it. I never had it before and I never had a problem but now it’s more psychological, I think. I’m singing 15 songs in a night.
“If I’ve had a really long day, it’s such a security blanket. For instance, if I’ve overworked myself or underslept, sometimes I just blank. Or if I’ve got something big the next day like an awards show or TV (appearance), I’m thinking about that typically when I’m onstage, so this is really helpful. I’ve had a lot of friends say they’ve had it, so I was like, ‘Well since we’re doing arenas this time, we’re gonna have one of those!’
Perry just recently wrapped her California Dreams tour.
