Singer Katy Perry is making headlines for statements she recently made about having a baby. In a recent issue of Rolling Stone, the 29-year-old said, “I don’t need a dude […] It’s 2014! […] I love men. But there’s an option if someone doesn’t present himself.”

Today on The Five, Andrea Tantaros asked if Perry’s message is a positive one for her young female fans.

Kimberly Guilfoyle reacted, “I’m hoping she’s trying to say it in a way that’s empowering, saying even if you’re not lucky in love […] you can still fulfill dreams.”

However, she pointed out that not every single mother can afford nannies and childcare like Perry can.

“Raising a child is a tremendous amount of work […] you have to pour in every minute of the day,” Guilfoyle said. “Maybe she doesn’t quite realize that. So when you have fans that worship and idolize her, […] then you run the risk of being a bad influence.”
