Katy Perry Drops Divorce Statement Song
While Russell Brand has done a few interview since his December divorce from Katy Perry, the musician has aptly chosen to let the music speak for her.
At last night's Billboard Music Awards Katy debuted a new song, Wide Awake, that not-so-subtly serves as her public statement about the split.
With lines like, "I'm wide awake. I was in the dark, I was falling hard with an open heart. How did I read the stars so wrong?" it's easy to align with Katy's perspective on her marital mistake.
And it's clear she sees her time with Russell as a mistake, adding, lyrically, "I was dreaming for so long. I wish I knew then what I know now. I wouldn't dive in, I wouldn't bow down."
But things are already better, just five months out, as she sings, "Not losing any sleep, I picked up every piece and landed on my feet. Need nothing to complete my self. I am born again, outta the lion's den. I don't have to pretend. The story's over now, the end."
