From Teenage Dream to Wide Awake

The final chapter of the "Teenage Dream" saga is about to unfold, according to a recent tweet from Katy Perry.

It is a song called "Wide Awake" from her recent "Complete Confection" re-release of her hugely successful sophomore album. I think it's quite fitting that it was released as a single a few weeks ago. The end of this era could not be more fitting- Katy wakes up from her teenage dream.

Two album arts, whaaat??

This electronic, mid-tempo track is obviously about Katy's recent divorce from Russell Brand. Critics have applauded the maturity found within this song. I find it both soothing and exciting at the same time.

A music video is coming soon. Y'all know it'll be here. For now, here's the lyric video.

I kinda like this. It shows how social media savvy she is.

Ooh, and a teaser! June 19th, can't wait.

A fairy tale/storybook theme. How cute. <3 She makes the best music videos.

Along with being a single, WA will be used to promote KP's upcoming concert/documentary film, "Katy Perry: Part of Me" as part of her deal with Pepsi. I find this to be a tad self-promotional, but I guess that's how the music industry works. It's important to keep a good balance of artistry and business sense, I think. KP: Part of Me should be pretty awesome. There'll be a post about it here, of course. :)

Anyway, what do YOU think of this song?



  1. I reallllly like this song. I think it's a lil' different than most of KP's more popular stuff, and I really like it!

  2. I'm also freakin' stoked for her movie!!!!

  3. We should totally go to it. Guest post material? Methinks yes! :D
