Katy Perry was told to lie and say her new single, 'Part Of Me', is about Russell Brand, but refused

Katy Perry was told to lie and say her new single is about Russell Brand, but refused.

The singer ended her 14-month marriage to the British comedian in December last year, and was horrified when it was suggested her latest track, 'Part Of Me', could be a bigger hit if she claimed she had only just written it.

She told MTV News: "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 douchebag, 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."

Katy recently admitted her third album is going to get "real f***ing dark" and her lyrics will be more introspective than her previous records.

She added "Well, my music is about get real f***ing dark. I'll be shoe-gazing. You'll never see my face because my hair is in my face."
