Katy Perry Says ‘New Album Will Be ‘Black Box’ Of Who I Am’

Katy Perry has revealed that her next album will include inspiration from her divorce from comedian Russell Brand.

But don’t worry it won’t be a tearjerker like Adele’s 21. The ‘Part Of Me’ singer is currently working on ideas for the follow-up to Teenage Dream and like her recent documentary, it will feature details of her divorce from comedian Russell Brand.

“I would love to just let it be the black box of who I am,” Katy told Capital FM. Perry said the album will be ‘a lot darker’ than her previous releases.

“I’d never devote a whole record to heartbreak,” she stated. “I’m happy, I’m in a good place, I’m looking forward to my future”.

Last week her ex-husband Russell Brand revealed that he wanted to have children with his then-wife and she didn’t because of her career.

The ‘Get Him To The Greek’ star was talking to Howard Stern about his 14-month marriage to Katy, which was finalised last weekend, where he revealed his plans to start a family but the timing wasn’t right for the ‘California Gurls’ singer.

Russell, 37, explained: “She’s young, successful and dedicated. [The reality is] you can’t fully understand it until you do it. I was really into the idea ofmarriage and having children.”

It’s going to be lot of great records on it, a lot of dope features, a lot of great production. I want all my fans to check it out.”

Doris Day Returns With New Album Aged 87

Doris Day, the legendary American actress and singer, is set to release her new album ‘My Heart’ next month – 17 years since her last record. The entertainer, now 87-years-old, will release the re-mastered recordings featuring new material and cover songs on 5th September 2011.

Born in Ohio in 1924, the singer had her first hit record ‘Sentimental Journey’ in 1945. She rose to become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood and received an Academy Award nomination for her performance in ‘Pillow Talk’. Speaking to the UK’s Yorkshire Post about her new record, Doris said, “It was brought to my attention that the recordings were in storage and Sony was interested in releasing them. So I listened to them and at first had some misgivings, but after they were re-mastered, I liked them and hoped my fans would too”. The singer has spent her later life working on animal rights projects and admits she doesn’t listen to any contemporary artists – except for one Canadian crooner, saying, “I think Michael Buble is marvellous but perhaps that’s because he sings in the style I’m so familiar with”.

Doris Day’s upcoming album features the track ‘Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries’, which was produced by her son Terry who died in 2004.
Now that’s what I call LONGEVITY!!!!

Here’s a little reminder incase you don’t remember who Doris is (Slap Yourself if you don’t!!):
