The podcast will also examine Taylor’s ascent to the position of highest-paid actress in the world in the 1960s, when she successfully negotiated the first $1 million contract to play Cleopatra in 1963.
In a statement following the podcast’s announcement in March, Perry said that, like most people, she was attracted to Taylor’s glamour and that Perry will continue referencing Taylor through some of her own visuals.
Talking about Elizabeth Taylor, Perry said that she is inspired by her bold activism, constant boss moves in the business and out of all, her unapologetic way of loving. She ended the statement saying, these are all the things Perry tries to be in her own life.
