Katy Perry On The Meaning Of New Single 'Wide Awake': "It's A Dose Of Reality"
The 'Part Of Me' star says her new song is about picking yourself up and moving on with your life.
The 'Firework' singer says the track is "kind of like coming down from a high', and says it is the perfect song to represent moving forward in your life.
"I have a lot of different emotions and feelings in all of my songs," Katy revealed to MTV News. "This song in particular is a dose of reality.
"It's kind of like coming down from a high," she explained. "You've been on cloud nine for so long and it can't always be so sweet and sometimes you need to realise that, and you have to pick yourself up and move forward and face the facts of life, and know that this is just a lesson you learn and you're stronger because of it.
Katy unveiled the highly anticipated music video for 'Wide Awake' earlier today (19th June), which opens on the set of her 'California Gurls' video, before seeing Katy transported to a labyrinth fairy tale setting.
