‘Part of me’ not about ex-Russell says Katy Perry
Washington: With lyrics like, “You can keep the diamond ring - it don’t mean nothing anyway,” Katy Perry’s new song ‘Part of Me’ was assumed to be about her divorce from Russell Brand.
But the 27-year-old singer has denied it saying that she wrote the track years before her divorce from the ‘Arthur’ star.
The couple filed for divorce after just 14 months of marriage in December.
However, Perry acknowledges its relevance to her current situation.
“I wrote ‘Part of Me’ two years ago and I always knew that ‘Part of Me’ was a special song,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“It feels like my life plays out with these songs. 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,” she said.
The singer believes that its quiet important to write songs that are honest and relatable to people.
“I guess the universe is kind of – we’re kind of like, dancing together in some weird way.
“Does that make sense or am I being too hippie? I think it’s really important for me to write songs that are still honest and relatable because that’s what everyone else is going through,” she added.
