16 December 2011, 11:00

The 'Teenage Dream' singer admits 2011 has been a roller-coaster year for her following the release of her second studio album.

Katy Perry has described 2011 as an "intense" year after enduring a hectic schedule on her' California Dreams' tour, three new single releases as well as her first year of marriage.

The 'California Gurls' singer has had a landmark year after scoring five number one singles on the Billboard chart from her 'Teenage Dream' album, a feat matched only by Michael Jackson's 'Bad' album.

"It's been intense," Katy told The Mirror this week.

"I've been clinging on to the rocket for dear life, hoping I don't get bucked off."

Despite being forced to laugh off rumours she was filing for divorce earlier this month, Katy says her 14-month marriage to comedian Russell Brand has been "lovely so far".

The 'Firework' singer was named MTV's Artist of the Year this week.
