Katy Perry has hinted the direction she's going to take in her next studio installment. The singer, who's known for her pop sugary anthems in the beginning of "Teenage Dream", will do more exploration in the "dark" side instead of sticking on the "fun and vibrant" road.
"Well, my music is about get real f**king dark," the West Coast artist spilled in a recent chat with Kristen Wiig for the cover story of Interview magazine's latest issue. "I'll be shoe-gazing. You'll never see my face because my hair is in my face."
Perry has sort of introduced the glum vibes in a breakup tune "Part of Me". Many believed the song's an ode to her doomed relationship with Russell Brand, but she denied it. "I wrote Part of Me two years ago and I always knew that Part of Me was a special song," she insisted.
Still, the Grammy-nominated singer admitted, "It feels like my life plays out with these songs." She added, "I feel like I'm in some kind of weird 'Truman Show' where I'm like, 'Why is this single appropriate now and it wouldn't have been appropriate then?' It's just so crazy."
In a separate interview with MTV News, Perry said she would be back to her roots in the next album. "I am ready to make a new record and maybe try another approach artistically, and I will close the book on 'Teenage Dream' soon," she said. "I just think that it's time for me in some ways to show where I came from."
Perry elaborated her vision as stating, "I've always just been me and my guitar; and I'm not saying I'm going to make that record, but I do want to get back to my roots. I've been changing my hair color too much!"
