    Trevor started off by saying how it seems that Orlando and Katy live "a life of purpose," "peace," and "normalcy" despite her HUGE level of fame. "I think one of the things that I fell in love with Katy was... She hates when I say this, so I have to word it carefully, but her music was everywhere, right?" Orlando said.

    "When I came up, [her music] was just on every radio station, but I wasn't conscious of...[it] wasn't what I was listening to," he added. "But, I fell in love with Katheryn, this girl from Santa Barbara. And by the way, parents, pastors, living on food stamps."

    He also said that they have an "understanding where we came from, what we worked to do, what we had to do to get to where we got to" and that Katy "definitely demands that I evolve."

    "I feel I do the same for her. And that makes for fireworks, pardon the pun," he continued. "But it also makes for a lot of fun and a lot of growth."
