for her tour which featured extravagant decorations and costumes. She won three awards, including Choice Music: Tour at Teen Choice Awards and Favorite Tour Headliner at People's Choice Awards. Her "Teenage Dream Tour" was then filmed to be an autobiographical flick called "Katy Perry: Part of Me", which was quite a success in theaters.

Afterwards, Perry slowed down a bit. While she was no longer touring and promoting any song, she was working hard to put together her next album titled "Prism". Its lead single "Roar" was preceded the LP and debuted at No. 1 on Hot 100 chart. The album was released on October 18, 2013, and it received positive reviews from fans and critics.

Perry split from Mayer in February 2014 while gearing up for her tour in support of "Prism". She kicked off "Prismatic World Tour" in May 2014 and concluded it in October 2015.
