Katy Perry Vows To Ditch Shopping Addiction To Help Save The Environment: "I Want To Only Buy Out Of Necessity"

Self-confessed 'shopping addict' Katy Perry vows to go cold turkey in a bid to reduce environmental pollution.

Katy Perry has an addiction to clothes shopping.

The 'Dark Horse' hitmaker has made a personal pledge to shop less and buy out of necessity because she is so aware of how wasteful she is as a consumer of clothes.

Speaking on an Instagram Live, she shared: I used to be so addicted to shopping. I have become so aware of how wasteful I have been as a consumer with clothes. In my personal life I have pledged to myself that I am not really going to buy. I want to only buy out of necessity.

She also addressed the environmental impact of the fashion industry. Clothes are in the top five of the most polluting things for our planet and I cannot be a part of that like I was, especially knowing my daughter is going to grow up in that.

Meanwhile, Katy — who gave birth to her first child Daisy Dove last year — previously admitted motherhood has made her value every moment a whole lot more.

She added: I see my daughter change so much in the past five months and looking back at photos it's like, 'Whoa.' You see time in human form and it's like …

Now she's got chunky cheeks. In a way, it's really encouraged me to be even more present and to value every day. And all we have is this moment. That's what's promised is this moment and nothing else ... She'll always be the No. 1 most important thing ever, naturally. But I love being a working mum. I don't think there's anything negative about it. It's like, 'Wow, you can do that and that?' All right! That's a woman, you know?

And the 36-year-old singer confessed being a mum is the best job in the world .

She shared: I think that you realise that when you become a mother ... you just have to focus on being a mom. And it's not because you don't love other people, it's not because of anything besides you just want to be a great mom. So a lot of stuff falls away when you become a mom and it is the best job in the world. I highly recommend it when you're ready. — BANG
