Although it certainly isn't an obvious choice, we're very glad Katy Perry chose to release The One That Got Away as the sixth single off of her latest album, Teenage Dream, and the singer recently opened up as to why she ultimately went with it!
"I'm so pleased to select 'The One That Got Away' as my sixth single because this song shows a very different side of me that I haven't shown with my past singles on this record. I think that everyone can related to this song. I wrote this song about when you promise someone forever, but you end up not being able to follow through. It's a bittersweet story - hopefully, the listener learns from hearing it and never has to say they had 'The One' get away."
We imagine many are going to find themselves connecting with the sad, but unfortunate reality of the lyrical content!
But c'mon, gurl! Do Peacock next! Okay?!
