She told Radio Times that the follow-up to Teenage Dream is likely to be a more introspective album that will deal with the fall-out of her divorce from British comedian Russell Brand.

She said, “I feel I have a lot to say on the next record. I have a lot to flush out of the system. I’m not saying that I’m not going to be the candy queen anymore, but I think it’s time for more meat and potatoes.”

“With (last album) Teenage Dream, I created this cotton candy cloud with a kind of a wink and a kiss, and it was all cute and fun and playful,” Perry continued, “Now it’s as if I have had to step off this cloud and face reality. It’s like I’m falling from cloud nine and crashing from the sky, crashing from the sweetness of that moment.”

Perry is currently promoting her new documentary Katy Perry: Part Of Me, which is in cinemas now. Watch the trailer below.
