The 'Firework' singer also opens up about releasing a promotional song from her new album 'Prism'.

Katy Perry says she loved getting the "last word" at the MTV Video Music Awards 2013 by closing out the show with a performance of her new single 'Roar'.

The 'Wide Awake' singer gave her first live performance of the new single at the MTV event on Sunday (25th August), performing in the middle of a boxing ring dressed up like a fighter, and finished both the performance and the show itself by holding up cards that ready "GAME OVER".

"You know what? I like to have the last word, and that's me having the last word," Katy joked to MTV News, after closing out one of the biggest music industry events of the year.

The 'Part Of Me' singer says the boxer theme and the gold colours of her outfit help reinforce the overall theme of her new album 'Prism', and went on to say how important her promotional 'Prism' truck has been in spreading word of the new record.

Yeah, I tweeted a golden brass knuckle microphone and it matches my golden 'Prism' truck," she explained. "Actually the 'Prism' truck was a great way to announce the record, a different way rather than going straight to Twitter or Facebook or stuff like that.

"You know, it's very interactive cause it started in LA and it drove across country and got to New York for this evening," Katy continued. "It was a nice interactive way to be like, 'Yeah my record's out, but you discover it'.

The 'Firework' singer has also given fans the chance to hear two brand new songs from her next album, 'Walking On Air' and 'Dark Horse', but insists neither song will be her next official single.

"Again, 'Dark Horse' ft. @therealjuicyj is just a PREVIEW of #PRISM when released on 17th September, NOT the 2nd single," Katy tweeted this week.

Katy Perry is set to release new album 'Prism' on 22nd October.
