Katy Perry has admitted that her new single 'Part Of Me' is timed with her split to Russell Brand, though perhaps not intentionally.
The singer wrote and recorded 'Part Of Me' for the original Teenage Dream sessions two years ago, but it is only now seeing the light of day as part of the album's re-release The Complete Confection.
She set tongues wagging when she changed a lyric to "You can keep the diamond ring, it don't mean nothing anyway", and chose to release the track as the new set's lead single - just as her divorce from the British actor and comedian was being finalised.
She told Access Hollywood: "It feels like my life plays out with these songs. I feel like I'm in some kind of weird Truman Show where I'm like, 'Why is this single appropriate now and it wouldn't have been appropriate then?' It's just so crazy. I guess the universe is kind of - we're kind of like, dancing together in some weird way.
"Does that make sense or am I being too hippie? I think it's really important for me to write songs that are still honest and relatable because that's what everyone else is going through."
'Part Of Me' debuted at Number 1 in the US last week.
