Katy Perry doesn't slow down and stop performing for NOTHING!
Not even the premiere of her own movie!
That's right, the singer debuted her documentary, Part Of Me 3D, in El Lay last night at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, but instead of just walking the red carpet and looking fabulous for the evening, she put on a mini-concert for all of her beloved fans, and as to be expected, RAWKED THE HOUSE!
Ch-ch-check out her absolutely stunning rendition of her newest single, Wide Awake (above)!
And all the better because as always, she is committed to singing 100% live!
Well done, gurl! Now sit back, relax, and enjoy your movie!
You deserve it!
Check out Katy also performing Firework and Part Of Me from last night's premiere…AFTER THE JUMP!
Yeah! We didn't think she would be going anywhere!
And obviously, we were RIGHT!
For the second week in a row, Canadian cutie pie Carly Rae Jepsen has once again remained in the number one spot of the Billboard Hot 100 with her smash single, Call Me Maybe, after selling 292,000 downloads this week alone!
Meanwhile, Gotye and Kimbra remain steadfast behind her in the number two seat with their equally catchy collaboration, Somebody I Used To Know, while Maroon 5 comes in at number three with Payphone and Katy Perry leapt from nine to four with her latest, Wide Awake!
Well done, gurl! Let's see how long your reign lasts this summer!
We have a feeling it might be a while!
Ch-ch-check out the rest of Billboard Hot 100 top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!
In an MTV interview that airs on Tuesday, Katy Perry opens up about Part of Me, her divorce, and her song writing process in general.
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!!
We hate the crumby things your love-cookie Russell Brand did to you during your marriage, but we're glad you were able to turn that hurt and pain into beautifully cathartic music!!
The world premiere for the Wide Awake video is Tuesday on MTV!
After two years, eight singles, multiple grammy nominations, record-breaking sales, a massive world tour, and an accompany documentary, the era of Teenage Dream is coming to a close!
But don't worry, Katy Perry has one last treat for us all!
Ch-ch-check out the STUNNING music video for Wide Awake, the pop star's eighth and final single off of her sophmore album's Complete Confection re-release, which also ties in to her upcoming flick Part Of Me 3D (above)!
Obviously, this is as much a reflection on her journey from childhood to where she is now as it is a reflection on the writing and producing of this record, and we think it beautifully manages to capture both in a really poignant, creative way…all the while still capturing gurl's offbeat humor and unique aesthetic!
Win! Win! Win!
As sad as we are as to see this chapter in her career close, we couldn't be more thrilled for what she's got up her sleeve for the next album!
Whatever it is, we are 110% certain it's going to be INCREDIBLE!
