Katy Perry isn't worried about balancing motherhood and her career.
The 'Smile' hitmaker - who is expecting a baby girl with Orlando Bloom - insists she isn't concerned about taking on her full time role as a parent as well as her huge music career because she feels women were made to be able to handle both sides of it, her personal and professional life.
Speaking to Apple Music about becoming a mom, she said: "I was like, 'I don't know how to do this. It'll break. I'm not very maternal.
"I am, in a way, but when it comes to crying, sadness and like that kind of stuff, I'm like, 'I don't know what to do ... After doing a ton of work and continuing on that journey, I was like, 'I'm ready.' I don't want to ever choose between being a mom and doing what I love. That is so archaic.
"I think the ... reason why women get the responsibility of creating another life is they can ... do it all ... So it's not about choosing, it's about balance."
Meanwhile, the 35-year-old star had previously revealed her parenting style will be "the 3Fs - fun, firm but fair".
She said: "I'm definitely parenting style 3Fs: I'm fun, firm but fair. Yes, I like to get things done and I like to, you know, create a peaceful scene and it takes a matriarchy to do that. They do say that when you meet your wife or your soulmate or your partner, whatever you want to say, that you think that they're perfect and they're everything ... and that quickly fades away, right? When you meet your daughter that's when you've met the love of your life."
