United Nations - Pop star Katy Perry says becoming a goodwill ambassador for the UN children's agency has made her realise that there's more to happiness than material possessions and social status.

She said that on her first trip for Unicef, to the impoverished Indian Ocean island nation of Madagascar in April, she was moved by “the incredible joy” of the children despite the difficulties many faced - and that inspired her to write the song “Unconditionally.”

“It really kind of reprioritised my thinking, and my whole approach on life, and how to find my own joy and my own happiness that isn't being from material possessions and social status,” Perry said. - Sapa-AP
