The 'Firework' singer says the rerelease of her second album is just to keep her hardcore fans satisfied.
Katy Perry says her upcoming reissue of 'Teenage Dream' is aimed more at her diehard fans as well as people new to her music.
The 'Part Of Me' singer released 'Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection' this week, which features three brand new songs, but says she doesn't want the repackaged edition of her 2010 sophomore record to feel "contrived".
"This isn't a 'reloaded' album, it's not an album with eight songs that are new, it's not my third record," Katy explained to MTV News. "It's my second record, with a face-lift.
"I don't want it to feel contrived or manipulated. I had the idea to do a reissue, like that one last 'wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am."
The 'Firework' singer explained that 'Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection' is more for people who are only just getting into her music, as a way to give them something extra before her eventual third album.
"Here's 'Teenage Dream', if you're on the edge of being a fan," she said. "it's for that last push of like, 'Jump in with me. Why not? You've already bought five songs so you might as well complete your album!'"
Katy added: "Why I did it was because I know my fans always want more, so it's for the die-hard fan to have a nice, complete package."
Katy Perry recently confirmed plans to release a 3D concert movie of her 2011 'California Gurls' tour this summer.
