    Katy Perry revealed what inspired her new single "Unconditionally."

    The singer revealed the song "was influenced by my boyfriend and also really influenced by Africa." Her BF is John Mayer, of course.

    As for Africa? She explained it to EW: "I went to Madagascar and did a UNICEF trip that changed my life and gave me this song. It's just a simple message about loving someone and accepting them and kind of driving at you don't have to be so self-conscious, you don't have to fear, because essentially, everybody has their stuff. Nobody comes stuff-free. Everybody has their things and you're never going to be perfect, and accepting that and understanding that, especially in a relationship, it makes room for a real, genuine kind of love."
