Katy Perry Covers Billboard Magazine / Confirms Next Single

Cop a gander at ‘Hot & Cold’ hitmaker Katy Perry heating up the latest issue of Billboard magazine.  Before undoubtedly revving up the massive promo machine that will accompany her newest album ‘Prism’ (October 22), the songstress revved up her faithful #Katycats last month for their input on her next single.

With the Juicy J-assisted tune ‘Dark Horse’ quickly walking away with the victory over its ‘Walking On Air’ competitor, fans were sure it would be given the video treatment.

But, despite the song making a handsome top 20 debut on the Hot 100 this week (with virtually no promo), it appears Perry & team have dashed in another direction for the ‘Prism’s follow-up pick.

Tuck in below to see one more snap from the Billboard mag cover, read excerpts from the interview, and find out what the singer’s next single will be…

New single:  “Unconditionally”

Billboard Magazine (excerpts):

On Barbara Walters “shading” her for being late to an interview:

“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 it’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.'”

On Teenage Dream vs. Prism:

“I didn’t want to do Teenage Dream 2.0,” she says. “Teenage Dream was highly conceptual, super-pop art. “PRISM” is more organic, au naturale, vulnerable and honest, but still has the same amount of fun.”

 “I wanted to make a song that was like what Mariah Carey would have put on her first record,” Perry says.

  3. Overdose September 27, 2013

    All her music is the same basic pop garbage dead at her making out its so complex in the last para.

    • Barb 4 lyfe September 27, 2013

      But cici is the same to ghetto dance music.

      • Overdose September 27, 2013

        B**** you stan for sell out Nicki who makes songs like Stupid H** so stop there.

      • Barb B**** September 27, 2013

        B**** stfu too bad more people prefer Nickis music to Ciaras. And I love Ci but don’t go there!

  4. Barb 4 lyfe September 27, 2013

    To bad no one remembers any of Mariahs songs from the first record kiiiii… But Katy good luck with thay ..

    • Barb 4 lyfe September 27, 2013


    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      Like the re-flop and roman floploaded are any better. Dead at u shading real legends…

    • Beyhive September 27, 2013

      But nicki’s biggest hit is about a spaceship? pretty sure that’s what a starship is.

  5. Queen September 27, 2013

    Singles Queen Katy is coming for her second #1 for this era I see.

    Serve us more bubblegum pop so we can chew it up and spit it right out.

    I’m still here for it regardless.

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      The wonders payola and clear channel can do…..

      • Twerk 4 Miley September 27, 2013

        To bad payola doesn’t work for gaga she uses so much but it still hasn’t got a number 1 with applause.

      • Slayty Perry (PRISM) September 27, 2013

        Didn’t work out for Applause though. Clear Channel =/= payola. FYI, Roar’s success mainly came from digital sales, something airplay cant buy, ask Ciara and Rihanna. Keep reaching and stay pressed though.

      • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

        And it’s clearly staying afloat cuz of payola/clear channel…

      • Slayty Perry (PRISM) September 27, 2013

        Its been selling over 300k per week though. That Clear Channel deal has been expired. Keep trying it.

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      Too bad all of Gaga’s albums have outsold Miley”s tho. Hey, how’s Katy’s networth compared to Gaga?

  6. FERGIE FAN September 27, 2013

    Wow she looks wonderful! Go Katy, you will slay next era.

  7. New Life/Queen Monica September 27, 2013

    isn’t it ironic she’s got monarch butterflies around her. Hence her s** kitten Mind Control programming. MK ultra. Before you delusional stans get pissed, get on google, and look up MK Ultra, a great deal of female celebs are under MK Ultra mind control, from Mariah, brittany, C brown, A Bynes…and when theyh rebel, like Mariah, Brittany, and ABynes did, they are percieved lunatics by the media. FACT, go research these celebs u all worship. Monarch Mind control (monarh butterfly) aka MK Ultra, and see how many of these h*** have monarch tattoes, or “shh” or roman numeral tats. H*** will b h***.

    • New Life/Queen Monica September 27, 2013

      monarch mind control celebs…a short list. Kanye, His wife lol, Michal Jordan, C Brown, Usher, Lil Wayne, Niki, Beyonce, Rihana, Brandy, A Bynes, B Spears, Gaga, K Perry, Fergi, Mariah, Mary J, X Tina

      all those celebs, and so many more, have what u call handlers, who control them.

      artist who rebelled against this s***…a short list Lauren Hill, Tupac, Amy WineHouse..

      • Lolz September 27, 2013

        One minute its illuminate then its MK Ultra. You theorists need to make up your minds smh

  8. iconic cici September 27, 2013

    GaGa wishes she was as hot as Katy! Her music is still bubble pop b*******.

    • Beyhive September 27, 2013

      But , but everyone is hotter than cici.

      • Molly September 27, 2013

        Girl please stfu… And sis tell me why everyones saying Ciara wore givenchy gown better than beyfat did Bahahahahahahahahaha.

      • Beyhive September 27, 2013

        Tell me why no one cared when she did.

      • Rosie September 27, 2013

        Kii @ you all still bragging about that leftover Givenchy gown from 2010.
        She couldn’t get them to give her a gown from this current season. Shows how little Givenchy themselves care about their “muse.”

      • Molly September 27, 2013

        @Rosie dont you have a teacher to go seduce so maybe you can get a passing grade in one of those remedial courses you take. kii

      • Rosie September 27, 2013

        F** I’m in Honors College. Something you will never achieve as you continue to suck c**** in the alleyway to pay rent. Enjoy your h*****.

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      Everyone is better than Cierror at this point so lets not go there….lmao.

  9. Beyhive September 27, 2013

    Get ready for another 3 year era everyone.

    • Lolz September 27, 2013

      Stop trolling under Beyhive so people come for Beyonce.

      • Beyhive September 27, 2013

        How am I trolling when I really Stan for bey? Have a seat, please and thank you.

      • Lolz September 27, 2013

        I don’t see you ever stanning though. Irony.

      • Beyhive September 27, 2013

        Most likely because I don’t comment on everything like lovebird & others. I drag when it’s needed, and when others haven’t dragged yet, so bye. I commented on a post yesterday if it means that damn much to you.

    • FERGIE FAN September 27, 2013

      Isn’t that what Beyonce always does? Re-releasing albums million times with 213241343 quick lil videos ?

      • Rosie September 27, 2013

        But where is Fergie’s album?

      • FERGIE FAN September 27, 2013

        I know that you can’t wait for it (BEP are working on their next album though). Fergie is currently enjoyng being a mother, any problem with that? The Dutchess >>> lana Del Rey entire discography

      • ABC September 27, 2013

        Girl you aint no Fergie fan when you cant even spell Duchess properly.

      • FERGIE FAN September 27, 2013

        Fail. It’s called The Dutchess. Look it up before you try to come for someone f**.

      • HTTR: HAIL TO THE REDSKINS September 27, 2013

        Fergie still on meth?

    The Queen looks flawless on this cover! I can’t wait for Unconditionally, reviewers at the Prism listening party named this the rawest song off the album and one of the best next to Legendary Lovers. I cannot wait! I see another #1 in her future and another multi-platinum album

  12. Loyalty September 27, 2013

    Cute spread. Like a Bohemian goddess.

  13. JOHNVIDAL September 27, 2013

    Can anybody tell this basic, reductive and childish 28 years old woman to keep Mariah Carey´s name out of her mouth please???
    In what f****** world can you compare the basic trash you release to Mariah Carey´s first hits? I swear these basic girls believe their own hype now: Katy, Rihanna and Mylie Wow they are really cocky. They are as basic as one can get but fake singles charts reignings makes them think they are true greats or something lol

    • Molly September 27, 2013

      Believing their own hype?? How ironic of you saying that as seeing that you stan for lady gaga…lol

    • FERGIE FAN September 27, 2013

      You and your double standards. Gaga makes basic pop like Katy, Rihanna, Miley, she is not better than them musically (an dno one cares if she is more talented or not, if she wrote or not her music because it doesn’t change the fact that her music is generic, dated pop with shallow lyrics and retarded hooks). Funny thing that you call Katy untalented but you stan for Lana Del Rey who can’t sing to save her life. And before you bring that Lana writes her music, so does Katy. She wrote all of her songs. What makes Lana more talented than Katy? Just because you prefer her music to Katy’s? Nope. Lana is as basic as Katy.

    • Slayty Perry (PRISM) September 27, 2013

      You stan for Gaga. The f****** irony of this comment. She’s a fan of Mimi, what’s there to hate? Sit your bitter bottom loose ass down.

      • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

        Gaga will always be a better artist than Katy. So u pathetic Katy Stans can ride the singles wave til the end…that won’t Improve her talent.

      • Slayty Perry (PRISM) September 27, 2013

        *Better thief is more accurate. There isn’t an artistic bone in her nasty looking body. Gaga stans can still try the “she’s a real artist” card but everyone sees through it. She has played that gimmick out.

    • Selenator September 27, 2013

      She’s praising Mariah you dumb b****. Try reading the full article before you pointlessly hate.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 28, 2013

      For all you basic kids who still don´t get it: Gaga is not a true great like the people I stan for, but she is way better than the rest of this basic generation. No one cares about talent? What the actual f*** is that kind of argument??? LOL
      Also, who told you I stan for Lana? I like her music, and yes she has talent for music since she is great songwriter, which makes her more talented than Katy is that her music is 10 times better while Katy who is 28 years old makes the music a 15 years old should be releasing.
      The f****** reach of you all trying to justify your basic standards.

    HOT HOT HOT, $LAY Katy $lay.

  18. Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

    I never understand why these dinosaurs who Stan for people who should be in an old folks home always compare the current gen to the previous gen.

    Here something you need to get, Whitney, Mariah, Toni, Celine make/made boring depressing suicidal music because that’s what big ballad vocalists do, that’s their lane.

    POP artists like Janet, Madonna, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Ke$ha make FEEL GOOD FUN music. You do not need a big powerful voice for fun feel good music.

    I do not want to go to a club and listen to a Boring French horn sing karaoke, I want to dance and have fun and so I’ll listen to human nature by Madonna.

    I do not want to have a hard days work and listen to drowning over the top vocal gymnastics from a 5 octave rude diva, I want feel good music that makes me forget the depressing day I’ve had so I’ll listen to where have you been by Rihanna.

    Music should be fun too, I don’t know why these boring dinosaurs are always so pressed.

    • Overdose September 27, 2013

      Lol b**** you dont work give me a break

    • New Life/Queen Monica September 27, 2013

      beyonce is pop also

      • Barb B**** September 27, 2013

        She does not like Beyonce so of course she wont include her. But Beyonce music makes me feel happy too *plays Love on Top (jumps around with hair brush) and Get Me Bodied (pats weave, twerks for gods and does the Naomi Campbell walk)*

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        But the flea hives said it’s RnB, which is it?

      • Barb B**** September 27, 2013

        I see Beyonces music as a mixture of Pop and R&B. She can crossover the two in many of her main songs. Like Crazy in Love would be considered R&B but Beyonce made it Pop too. That’s how I see it anyway.

      • Lovebird (Prism – 10.22.13) September 27, 2013

        Beyonce’s “POP” is trash anyway. “Who run this mother, who run this mother” <— WTF is that?

        She is so boring, uncreative and reductive. She is so cheap and creatively illiterate, just like her 5th grade education level.

        That's why she steals all the damn time. And if you do the same 1,2 step over and over and over again, of course you'll be good at it.

      • Barb B**** September 27, 2013

        Lool you’re going off topic. Thats your opinion about her music. I dont even stan for Bey but I love a lot of her music. Beyonce has many other great songs. Even some of her most recognizable songs cant be put in one genre. I love Bey and her songs, you don’t but that’s your opinion.

      • Barb B**** September 27, 2013

        Anyway, you cant give Beyonce any credit anyway and wont admit the fact she is a gem whether you like it or not. I loveeee Queen Bey, third to Miss Onikaaaa and Mr Aubrey baby!

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013

      They made depressing suicidal music? That’s the most dumbest s*** I’ve read. They made songs about love u idiot.

        This b**** is too much. A real person can´t be so damn basic and delusional. The excuses are hilarious.

        You don’t have to talk to me. I have right to say whatever I want. You are in every single post about her and always saying bad things, so don’t act. I like Rihanna, is there a problem with that? I don’t need to hide under Fergie’s name, I stan for more artsist like you do. Like I said, someome who stans for a person who sings Stupid H**/High School should be quiet about other people’s music preference.

    @TWERK4MILEY B**** YOU FAVE JUST SCORED HER FIRST NUMBER ONE SINGLE! Gaga is considered a Pop ICON. Miley finally got the world to care after years of trying so wtf is your hood rat ass point? Miley STILL has no ass and is man less!

    Everyone is laughing at Miley! Nobody takes her seriously so stop it! Miley finished her career before it even started, she’s just riding the wave of the VMAS but it is already getting played out very quickly.

    Keep letting her use you by tweeting your gay ass to watch her videos to break a tired ass VEVO record … Amd get 2flop3 into the top 10on iTunes!


    • FERGIE FAN September 27, 2013

      Just like your fav was tweeting about her single every single second? Just like everyone was laughing at her weird attention seeking costumes? Miley is had successful albums before Bangerz and WB/WCS though.

      Not to mention Gaga has 5 Grammys and Miley has 0 so clearly music skeptics take Gaga more seriously as an artist than Miley….

      Everyone is laughing at t***** Caca and how the gimmicks are garnering as much attention as a 90210 promo on the CW.

      Caca is finished, MDNA made sure of that and that art and pop FLop has no room in today’s pop arena. Here’s your seat _/

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 27, 2013
