Katy Perry Reveals Fierce New ‘Roar’ Cover Art

Katy Perry's Roar single cover art

Katy Perry looks ready “Roar” in the just-released cover art for her upcoming single.

Surrounded by a neon animal print border, the 28-year-old singer shows off a tiger-emblazoned satin jacket for the stylized shot. We’re getting more ’80s hair band and less modern pop star from this wild art, no?

Katy is known for her candy-coated sex appeal, but she seems to be laying that persona to rest with her upcoming album, PRISM. She has already released three teasers for her new single and they all not-so-subtly tell us that we should expect a new, darker Katy Perry.

“Roar” will be unleashed on August 12th. What do you think of the cover art?

Katy Perry Reveals New ‘Prism’ Single to ‘Billboard,’ Recalls the Time Barbara Walters “Shaded Me”

Published March 23, 2014 by gossipzoo

Perhaps the cutest part about Katy Perry‘s Billboard cover story is that she conducted the interview while wearing boyfriend John Mayer‘s tour merchandise.

But we’ll get to that later.

To start, the cover makes us yearn for summer. (We’ll take frolicking in a field of flowers over office life any day).

Next, Perry quietly confirms in the interview that the follow-up to Prism‘s first single “Roar” will be a tribal power ballad named “Unconditionally.” There’s also a brief roundup of the Prism tracklist. For example, Perry says “Birthday” is “a song that was like what Mariah Carey would have put on her first record.”

Perry also tells Billboard about the time a scheduling hiccup made her late for a sit-down with the one and only Barbara Walters. It also happened to be the time the singer was having marriage troubles with Russell Brand.

“When I got there, I apologized immediately, but then she said to me, ‘You know, I’ve only ever waited for one other person this long, and you know who that person was? Judy Garland. You know how she turned out, right?’ I was like, ‘Oh snap! Yes, bitch!’ I think that’s the coolest thing that Barbara Walters shaded me. I just couldn’t tell her as we were sitting down for a mega-interview, ‘Hey, my marriage is falling apart. Give me a break.'”

The Billboard excerpt, posted Friday, includes a moment where Perry gushes over her beau.

“I can’t believe I’m wearing my boyfriend’s shirt!” Perry says, before going into full Mayer fangirl girlfriend mode.

“He literally is a genius, as is evident from his songwriting. I always tell him, ‘Darling, you know I’m going to have to give your mind to science after you’ve passed, because we’re going to have to understand how all these sparks work.’ We’ll be in bed, and he’ll be doing the crossword puzzle. Every night, he tries to finish it in under 10 minutes. When he puts his mind to something, he really gets it done very well. I always ask for his help.”

Prism drops Oct. 18. For much more on Katy Perry, head over to Billboard and pick up a copy of this week’s issue.

Katy Perry Mourns A Candy-Coated Casket In Second ‘Roar’ Teaser

Katy Perry Roar Teaser

First she’s burning wigs, now she’s attending funerals! What’s our favorite “California Gurl” trying to tell us this time?

Katy Perry just released a second teaser for her upcoming single, “Roar,” and this one is even more twisted than the last.

On Friday the songstress unveiled an intriguing video where she can be seen burning her famous blue wig.

This time around the 28-year-old pop star is at a funeral surrounded by tearful attendees (including two screaming fangirls with purple hair and heart headbands), but she doesn’t seem too distraught about the whole death thing. Perry stands behind the coffin, which is decorated with one of her spinning peppermint corsets, sporting black shades and a bad ass knowing smirk.

It looks like Katy is truly ready to let her old image R.I.P.

“Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, a new beginning is a must!” the singer tweeted alongside the link to the new clip.

Say hello to the PRISM-era Perry, because Ms. Teenage Dream just buried her former self.

‘Roar’ drops August 12th. Watch the single’s second teaser, above.

Are you excited to see a new side of Katy Perry?
