Katy Perry made it very clear that she’s moved on from her candyland technicolor dream world of her “Teenage Dream” album/tour/persona. In her latest video, a teaser for her upcoming single, she’s going somewhere darker. Literally. In the promo for her single “Roar” (out August 12), Ms. Perry, in dark lipstick and surrounded by total darkness, holds up her signature blue wig and sets it on fire. The whole thing is very The Craft, but also reminds me of Lana Del Rey‘s look and feel.
Could this next era in Katy’s career be a little less sunshine and rainbows and a lot more drama and Del Rey? Let’s just hope they don’t start a feud.
Though it seemed pretty obvious that there was nothing going on between Rob Pattinson and Katy Perry, we can all rest easy now as Katy confirmed that she and Rob aren’t lovers, but more like gross buddies. As Ms. Perry told ELLE UK via Hollywood Life:
He’s my bud, I’m his big sister. We just hang out. [...] OK, so here’s the proof there was nothing was ever going on with me and Robert Pattinson. I fart in front of him. Properly fart. And I never fart in front of a man I am dating. That’s a rule.
Yeah, solid “proof.” Thanks for that, Katy. She also admits that she finds the actor attractive, but has never acted on it. She told him,
One of the things I’m most proud of is not sleeping with you, Robert.
Uhhh I get what she means but this one she probably should have kept to herself.
As for her current love life, Perry appears to be not farting in front of John Mayer, which is a terrible choice.
Or ‘Roar’. We’re all excited for Katy Perry‘s new music, right? And no, I’m not being sarcastic. Teenage Dream was an AMAZING album and I’m really excited to see what she’s going to come up with next, because that was a hard one to top. Of course her new single would be called ‘Roar’ or ‘Rawr’ – it just seems to fit. Of course, that might not actually be the case, but that’s the story going around. Katy’s longtime producer Dr. Luke also added to the “suspense” by tweeting the following:
Right, so all we really know so far is that her single starts with an R, her album is called Prism and you should take a picture of the trucks with her promo on them. That’s not very much. Here are some other R-titles that her single could be:
