"Guys, I just don't eat healthy snacks all the time. You want to talk cravings..." Perry said in the Instagram Live video while she laughed to herself.

"I like, literally, never cared for spice, and now, I have to carry Tabasco sauce in my purse like that woman. Like, I am that woman. I am Karen with her Tobasco sauce. Some people have essential oils, and I have Tobasco sauce. ... I've been eating the same burrito for weeks on end."

The 'I Kissed a Girl' singer also revealed that like normal women who are pregnant, they have aversions to certain foods throughout the duration of the gestation. For Perry, though, hers seemed to be beef, although she did note that she's never really been a big fan of eating 'red meat'.

"Actually a food that grosses me out now is beef," she said about her current aversion. "Not really into red meat, but thank God for Impossible Burger because that basically tastes like red meat and when I do want it, I do that."

Perry had previously admitted that she had kept the pregnancy a secret for months through the use of carrying around large purses, as well as, 'sucking in'. According to the Idol judge, she was also able to trick people into not knowing she was pregnant due to her incessant need to snack, even before she found out she'd be having a child.

"That’s why nobody really [suspected] anything, because I’ve always been hungry," Perry in the video. "And I've never liked [doing] crunches, so they just thought I was curvy and hungry. And yes, I am curvy and hungry!"

And while the news of Perry being pregnant for people around the world was a massive surprise, she assured people that it was completely planned. "Well, it wasn't on accident," she shared.

"I'm so grateful for everything that I have been able to do and achieve and all the goals that I've been kind of able to check off my list and dreams and the life I've lived thus far, and I think I've just been trying to create this space in my own life where I'm not running myself too ragged and like, you know, creating space for something new to happen like this."

"And I think we were both looking forward to this new interval of life and sharing this, so, that's kind of how it happens, you know," Perry added.
