“This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no.”
Having recently signed the divorce papers with ex-husband comedian Russell Brand, Katy Perry has debuted what seems like a stinging goodbye at the Grammys on Sunday. The song, “Part of Me,” will be the first single from the re-release of her album, “Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.” In it, Perry seems to address her ex with the lyrics, “You can keep the diamond ring, / It don’t mean nothing anyway,” with more bitter words coming from the usually sunny singer such as, “You chewed me up and spit me out, / Like I was poison in your mouth” and “You ripped me off, / Your love was cheap.” Click below to hear Katy Perry’s song now:
This isn’t the first time Katy has taken aim at an ex with her music: after her breakup with Gym Class Heroes frontman Travie McCoy, she seemed to reference McCoy’s prescription drug addiction in the song “Circle the Drain” when she sang “You fall asleep during foreplay / ‘Cause the pills you take / Are more your forte.”
