“I think what it says in the lyrics kind of everything the album embodies which is like hopefulness, resilience, joy, love, and that the whole journey and so that’s why it’s the record is called Smile because it’s simple as the fact that I had lost my smile and couldn’t get it back you know and I got it back obviously.” Perry said on the interview.
“You can tell so much about a person when they smile, or they don’t smile, or they force to smile or they’re not smiling with their teeth or if its fake. It’s like, you can just, I don’t know, if you read a person but my radar its just like you can see it all in a smile and you can see that sometimes people are really hurting because they barely crack a smile or they’re not smiling on their teeth or I don’t know its just simple emotional physical signal that speaks volumes and so it really is the definition of the journey that I had to go through.” She added.
