But do we believe her?? Because, well, come on.
"I wrote it two years ago, which is funny because everybody is like 'God, it sounds so current.' Some people that I work with were like, 'You should just say you wrote it a couple of weeks ago.' I'm like, 'I'm not a d—, I'm going to tell the truth.' I wrote it two years ago when I was writing and recording Teenage Dream, [but] it didn't feel right on the record.
"Sometimes I'm like, 'Am I living in The Truman Show?' … What's going on?' It just feels like sometimes I'm caught in this movie where my life is paralleling my music! It seems very serendipitous, but, as un-fun as it sounds, I prepare everything. I'm overly prepared and kind of a control freak in the best of ways."
Well, we believe her after all!
But they DID choose to release it now — so if she said they had always planned for that to be next, we totally wouldn't believe her no matter what she said!
Hope you're doing well, Katy!
