A couple days ahead of the release of her “Part Of Me” music video, Katy Perry has just released a new track titled “Wide Awake,” and we’ve got your first listen. The verdict on the new track? It’s good! “Wide Awake” is more of the post breakup Katy, as she sings about being wide awake and seeing clearly now who was right in front of her. “Part Of Me” was more upbeat and angry, where as this one is a bit slower and more of a look back at the end of the relationship. Here are the lyrics from the first verse & chorus:

“I’m wide awake. Yeah I was in the dark, I was fallin’ hard. With an open heart (I’m wide awake) How did I read the stars so wrong? (I’m wide awake) And now it’s clear to me, that everything you see, a’int always what it seems (I’m wide awake) Yeah i was dreamin’ for so long. I wish I knew then what I know now – wouldn’t dive in, wouldn’t bow down. Gravity hurts, you made it so sweet. Til I woke up on, on the concrete.”

It’s definitely a great addition to the Teenage Dream collection that comes out on March 26. Give it a listen below!

Taking a break from all of the Madonna buzz, Katy Perry has just released a fierce little teaser for her upcoming music video for her latest single, “Part Of Me“. I already love the song, and now judging from the sneak peek of the video, I’m going to love the video too.

One of the lines in the song says, “Throw your bombs and your blows,” which seems to have inspired the video. With Russell Brand leaving her not too long ago, in my opinion, Katy is sending out a message loud and clear: “Your loss, buddy.”

In the teaser below, we hear the constant sound of marching, as we see flashes of army soldiers, helicopters, guns firing, and we end with a close up of Katy herself staring directly into the camera and ready for battle. The video comes out on March 21, but for now check out the teaser below.

Do you want to get a little bit closer to Katy Perry. This summer, you will have your chance when Paramount Pictures releases the Katy Perry: Part of Me”, a 3D concert movie. Katy will be joining the likes of the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and the cast of Glee who have done the same with their sell-out concert tours. Katy Perry took to Twitter yesterday to release the news to her fans.

“FINALLY, my MOVIE is coming out with Paramount this summer! It’s called “KATY PERRY: PART OF ME” Presented In 3D! KATYCATS-LETS TREND #KP3D.”

Producers Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz are in negotiations to direct the project with their production company Magical Elves. The duo have worked previously on Project Runway and created the hit Food Network series Top Chef. As it’s many predecessors, the film would take a look at Katy on and off the stage. If she has the same horse shoe as Justin Bieber, the film could gross over $98 million at the box office. Katy chose to name the movie after her newest single Part of Me which she debuted at the Grammys this year. There is much speculation about whether the song is about her recent divorce to ex-husband Russell Brand. Check out what Katy had to say about the lyrics to the song and it’s true meaning below.

On Tuesday, I showed you guys Katy Perry’s revealed cover for her Interview magazine spread and chat with funny woman Kristen Wiig. Now, the full spread shot by Mikael Jansson and styled by Karl Templer is on display along with the super-candid interview with Wiig. Literally, it’s a transcript of their phone call. Once in the informal banter back and forth is complete, Kristen does ask Katy about her career. The first question posed to Perry is what the relationship has been like with her family and friends since becoming famous. Here’s what Katy had to say:

It’s a very strange closeness . . . My whole thing is to agree to disagree and to have respect because nothing can really be changed and you wouldn’t want to ruin their happiness—even if that happiness is ignorance. But as far as the dynamic between us? It has absolutely changed. It’s bound to change with anyone, really . . . Well, not with anyone, because for some people it doesn’t ever change. But eventually our parents get to a certain age where they let go of the reins and they see that you’re responsible, that you’re okay, and maybe they’re finally relieved in some ways. Then they get older, so you take care of them. That’s kind of what I think the responsibility is—even if you’re not successful. But, you know, for me, with my whole thing. . . I think they just see that the dynamic has changed because I’m in a different place. But it’s not like I disrespect them in any way. I mean, I take care of them. But that’s what I’ve always wanted: to have enough that I could make sure that everyone in my family had enough. I grew up not really having anything, so the idea that I can take care of my family and my friends now is a really cool bonus.

Kristen also asks Katy about her humble beginnings, musical influences and more. Check out the photos and more of the interview below.

Over the weekend, a snapshot of Katy Perry looking striking in a black and white photo for Inteview magazine was circulating the social networking sites but no one really knew what was going on. Today, it was officially revealed that Katy would be the mag’s March 2012 cover girl. Along with a hi-res version of the cover shot by Mikael Jansson, the mag released the following statement:

“If you haven’t already heard, Katy Perry is our March covergirl. We’re pretty excited (!), especially as she’s interviewed by one of our favorite comedians, Kristen Wiig. Above is a sneak peek of Katy’s cover, shot by Mikael Jansson and styled by Karl Templer. More to come later in the week…”

Katy Perry Releases “Part Of Me” Lyric Video

In: Music, Patrick

Update your breakup/revenge playlists because last night Katy Perry debuted hot new track called “Part Of Me,” performing it live for the first time at the 2012 Grammy Awards. Today, she released the lyric video for the track for you to enjoy.

It’s clear by the lyrics that the song is clearly directed at her ex, Russell Brand. Perry sings, “So you can keep the diamond ring… It don’t mean nothing anyway. In fact, you can keep everything… yeah, yeah… except for me!” She then goes into the chorus singing, “This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no!” The lyrics and sound of the song remind of something I’d expect from Kelly Clarkson. Nonetheless, it’s great to see Katy Perry venting about her breakup and pouring her feelings of anger and empowerment into this song. I love it and have already downloaded it.

The song will be included on her upcoming March 26, 2012 album ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection‘. In addition to this song, the album will also feature two more new songs. Check out the lyric video for “Part of Me” below. I’ve also included the link for you to download the track on iTunes.

Last night, the 54th Annual Grammy Awards took over the Staples Centre in downtown Los Angeles for a true celebration of the past year’s greatest music. With a night full of performances and unlikely collaborations, it was hard for them to fit in all the awards. Thankfully, they handed out a majority of them prior to the show only leaving ten for the actual live show.

The evening was kicked started by a performance from Bruce Springstein who proved he was still The Boss. Afterwards, the evening’s host, LL Cool J took the stage to warm the crowd. He immediately addressed the dark cloud hanging over the awards ceremony tonight – the death of Whitney Houston. LL lead the Staples Centre in a quick prayer for the fallen icon and her family before getting the show underway.

Right away, the evening’s second performer Bruno Mars brought the energy back to the arena with his amazing performance of “Runaway” – one of my favorite songs from his album. Paying some serious homage to James Brown and other motown soul artists, Bruno brought the party and had the entire crowd on their feet. Read more Grammy highlights, watch my favorite performances and find out who won the night’s big awards below.

Katy Perry Transforms Into A Mermaid For GHD

In: Random Reads, Tyrell

Katy Perry is busy getting ready for her Grammy performance next weekend but on the side, she is promoting her latest ad campaign for GHD and their line of haircare products. This time around, the record breaking Billboard singer is endorsing their hair dryer which promises the best results of any other on the market. In the ad, Katy dons a mermaid tail and a light purple, bubble gum like wig blown over the shoulder without a piece out of place. As any mermaid would of course.

The shot was taken by famed photographer David LaChapelle who also helped build the concept of a mystical creature living under a bridge in a metropolis environment – a match made in heaven for Katy. “Dave LaChappelle made the set amazing,” said Perry when discussing the latest campaign still. “It’s as if Lisa Frank had done The Little Mermaid,” she continued in reference to a commercial artist whose work appears on many commercial elementary and pre-school products.
