Katy Perry at the pink carpet premiere of her new documentary, “Part of Me”

Katy Perry attended the premiere of her new movie, “Part of Me”, last night at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California.

I love her red dress! She looks great!

So what will Katy be up to, now that her ‘California Dreams’ tour has finally ended? Rumor has it she’s going to star alongside Sacha Baron Cohen in an upcoming biopic on Freddy Mercury’s life. She says she’s interested, but nothing is in writing yet.

“There’s something about the internet that’s sort of funny—it’s that nothing is true on there,” the chart-topping hitmaker told us at last night’s Hollywood premiere of her new documentary concert flick, Katy Perry: Part of Me.

The buzz began earlier this month when a British tabloid the Mirror claimed Perry was hoping to land the gig.

“There’s been no formal offer,” she told us. “Although I do like the association and I like the company because I think Sacha Baron Cohen is hilarious.”

But she said, “I have to take a catnap first before I do anything.”

Katy Perry claims she “did everything” to save her marriage

Katy Perry’s 3D documentary “Part of Me” opens up on July 5th. The movie will not only explore her career highs – but her personal lows as well.

Fans will find some of those personal moments pretty surprising, considering she is very candid about her split from her ex-husband, Russell Brand.

The film picks up just a few months after the two tied the knot, as Perry embarks on her biggest tour to date, the California Dreams Tour. Fans witness Perry put in hours of hard work preparing for the tour and traveling to hundreds of different cities. Yet, with the success that she was having onstage, it was offstage where things were falling apart.

It seems her new marriage and a grueling tour schedule were not mixing well, but it was not from lack of trying: Perry was adamant that while on her nearly yearlong tour, she take time out to see her husband, but in the end, it just couldn’t save the marriage.

At one point, while flying to one of her tour stops, Perry admits to the camera, “I’m trying to keep my marriage alive.”

“Part of Me” gives fans a rare glimpse inside a celebrity marriage, with Brand featured throughout the film. Some moments are touching, like when the comedian comes to wish her well on the opening night of her tour, yet some are heartbreaking to watch. In one scene, Perry is crying uncontrollably, delaying the start time of the concert, but like a true professional, she chokes back the tears and puts on a brave face for her fans.

Perry talks candidly about Brand in the film, revealing that it was her skyrocketing career that could have played into the downfall of her marriage. “I thought to myself, ‘When I find that person that’s going to be my life partner, I won’t ever have to choose [between the partner and my career]. They won’t be threatened or have weird motives.’ Then I started to realize, that’s not true,” she admits. Yet, when asked in the film whether she still misses Brand, Perry begins to cry and admits that she does, but says she did everything she could to make it work.

“I have that same belief system with everything, from career to my life to my personal life, everything. And I will do everything it takes to not fail,” she shares. “And I did everything it took, but it still failed.”

Perry recently told MTV News that even though the subject of her divorce is difficult to deal with, she felt she would be doing her fans a disservice if she didn’t include it in the film.

“The truth will always prevail,” Perry said. “Everything has to be handled integrously and appropriately, and it’s not nice to air all your dirty laundry, because that stinks, so I had to be very delicate with the situation, but I couldn’t avoid the elephant in the room,” she explained. “If you were to have seen that movie and walked out and [my breakup] wasn’t at all mentioned, like it never happened, you’d be like, ‘Eh, this is weird. What is she trying to hide?’ I don’t like to hide.”

I’m actually really excited to see her documentary, I think it’s going to be really interesting. I read somewhere that Russell begged Katy to take him out of her movie, but she refused. I can understand why! I don’t think Russell was a stand-up guy in that situation.

Here are some new pictures of Katy arriving for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last night.

Katy Perry: Wide Awake Is About Russell Brand

Katy Perry is trying to be 100% truthful when it comes to her new single, “Wide Awake!”

Perry, who tries to be a role model for her young fans, is trying to be honest and positive when it comes to the messages in her songs, and also when taking interviews and discussing songs.  That means she’s being pretty clear about her new song and what it’s about: overcoming and moving on from heartache (specifically, we think, from moving on from her breakup with comedian and ex-husband Russell Brand). Perry discusses the song in a Hollywoodlife.com article and video interview.

“I hope they feel encouraged that it doesn’t matter what thing is thrown at you or what kind of obstacle you face,” she says. “You can get through it and land on your feet triumphantly and strong. That’s what I hope people get from this music video … from the song. It’s just you’ve gotta grow up a little bit, I guess. Sometimes you have to deal with some things in order to move on in life. That’s what I’m doing.”

If there are any more questions about whether this coming-of-age song is about Perry’s ex, Russell Brand,  take a look at this video!

Here it is! Katy Perry’s NEW music video for “Wide Awake”

“Wide Awake” is the final single from Katy Perry’s megahit ‘Teenage Dream’ album. Katy sat down with MTV News to talk about closing the album, and the meaning behind her new video.

Recalling how the midtempo tune materialized after her “Katy Perry: Part of Me 3-D” docu-concert team asked for an ending credit tune, the singer said: “It kind of is like the perfect last word of me at this moment.”

“It’s kind of like the labyrinth of my life in the past two years,” she continued. “I just wanted to tell a story about myself kind of going through this journey, maybe sometimes trying to get out of the maze. There’s good parts and bad parts.”

But she’s not alone in the visual, as a younger version of Perry helps the starlet through the mystical maze, evading paparazzi, horned men and a deceitful Prince Charming. “I think what kept me going is the purity in my belief of music and my love for music; that’s the younger version of me,” she said of the mini-Katy symbolism.

As for what Katy’s learned from her trials and hardships, the singer showed off an arm tattoo that reads “Go with the flow” and explained how the message has turned into a life motto.

“That is how I have to live my life sometimes, because there’s always great things that pop up. There’s bad things that get in your way,” she admits. “I mean, it’s an obstacle course. Of course, it’s a fun one. You just have to be prepared and strong and ready for it. In this music video, I came out at the other end learning a lesson and feeling strong enough to get back out on that stage.”

I love the song, and the video’s ok?? I like Katy Perry, honestly I’m looking forward to seeing her documentary!

Russell Brand is relieved that whole monogamy thing is over!

Russell Brand admits that while he did stay faithful to his wife, Katy Perry, during their 14-month marriage, he’s relieved it’s over – and he can get back to fulfilling his “biological drive”.

Even after his brief marriage to Katy Perry fizzled, the Rock of Ages actor admits he isn’t against getting married again.

Russell confessed to The Mirror, “I’m single at the moment. I’m also dating. You know, that sort of dating where you can do what you like?”

Russell, who ended his 14-month-long marriage to Katy six months ago, insists he’s not “tied down” to anyone, but jokes — as he often does — “Well, occasionally…”

Russell claimed he was denying his “biological drive” when he was married, but apparently still believes in the sanctity of marriage.

“Yeah, I’d get married again,” Russell, 37, gushed.

But something he wasn’t too keen on discussing was his ex-wife, who’s reportedly dating Florence & the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.

“I don’t want to talk about stuff like that,” a normally chatty Russell said simply.

A person who is an admitted sex addict (like Russell) probably shouldn’t marry. I can’t imagine that ever ends well.
