Katy Perry is swearing up and down that her latest single, Part of Me, is not about her ex, Russell Brand!
But do we believe her?? Because, well, come on.
Regardless, here's Katy's defense of the and the questionable lyrics. She says:
"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!
