Katy Perry feels old, thanks to emerging artists.

The 37-year-old “Teenage Dream” singer confessed Outside magazine that she feels “old” hearing new songs that refer to the lyrics of some of her greatest hits.

Olivia Rodrigo and Fletcher, it seems, are both to blame. Rodrigo sings “Where’s my f ** king teenage dream” (referencing 2010’s “Teenage Dream”) on his track “Brutal” and Fletcher incorporates “I Kissed A Girl” (2008) into his song “Girls Girls Girls”.

“Are things nostalgic?” What? “She pointed out.” It’s like it’s yesterday, especially when people are like, ‘Oh my God! I used to listen to you as a kid and these are full adults with children.

Although she does feel a bit “mature,” Perry admitted it was “awesome” to see her work reproduced.

“It means the music always resonates. It means the message still rings true for people, ”she told the magazine. “It’s funny! It’s wonderful to have this cachet.

The pop star also shared his enthusiasm for his residency in Las Vegas, which begins Dec. 29, describing it as the “craziest, most campy spectacle” in Perry history.

“It’s going to be a feast for the ears and the eyes and it’s the most laughs I’ve ever had in a rehearsal in my life. My co-creators and collaborators, the dancers and the band, everyone is thinking, “This is the most wacky idea,” Perry explained.
