At the June 6 premiere, the celebrated musician exclusively tells PEOPLE that she had only seen the documentary once before the Tribeca premiere, noting her first viewing was of "a different edit."

"Then I just saw it the other night and I was like — there's certain parts I couldn't watch," she explains. "It's so raw and it's very honest. So it's very hard to really, and I look at her — I call her her referring to herself and I just want to hug her."

"Sometimes I go, 'Oh my God, somebody put her out of her misery,'" she confesses. "It is one of those types of films where it's just like, I'm just struggling through the whole thing and it is really telling for me."

The songwriter notes for PEOPLE that the project "helps her understand herself," explaining that when she watched it, "she was like, 'Oh, that's what's going on with me.'"

Perry tells PEOPLE that her child has a bit of the creative gene, noting how the 9-year-old "loves acting." And she adds that the musician's child's favorite singer is Cher, her "No. 1 fan."

Rhodes exclusively tells PEOPLE that they love the superstar because she's "cool" but doesn't have a favorite Cher song because they're a "true fan," with Perry adding, "True fans don't have favorites."

Perry previously told PEOPLE in 2020 that she believes “everything happens for a reason” and that she and Gilbert “are evolving into something else.”

“All I can do is continue my journey,” Perry told PEOPLE in 2020. She added that there “is much love” between the two.
