She even reveals that Wide Awake was just a Teenage Dream afterthought!!
Whaaaat? We love that song!!
The studio needed a track for the film's closing credits and KP just sat down and hashed out the perfect tune!!
"I love this song so much… It was a song that I hadn't written for Teenage Dream. I was doing this movie and they asked me if I wanted to write an end-title song for the movie and I was like, 'I know exactly what I want to say.' I was really kind of dying to write another song at that point. I didn't want to wait until I did a whole new record, and it's kind of the perfect last word of me at this moment."
Katy also talked about the concepts behind Teenage Dream — what her life was like while she wrote it and what she hoped to accomplish.
"I just wanted to tell a story about myself going through this journey, maybe sometimes trying to get out of the maze. There's good parts, there's bad parts. Of course, there have been a lot of things that went on last year that I had to get through and overcome. I think what probably kept me going is just the purity of my belief in music."
That's SO touching!!
The world premiere for the Wide Awake video is Tuesday on MTV!
