Katy Perry debuted her new song “Wide Awake” on the 2012 Billboard Music Awards show. Her performance was an interpretation of Georges Méliès 1902 French black-and-white silent science fiction film A Trip to the Moon.  Perry wrote the song for her new movie Katy Perry: Part of Me.

Katy Perry: Part of Me is a concert film with biographical information interspersed among the elaborate 3D stage performances much like Justin Bieber’s docu-concert film.  Even though it will be released on July 4th of this year it even touches on her recent divorce from Russell Brand.

Teenage Dream The Complete Confection Special Edition, a re-release and retooling of her 2010 album came out this spring. Perry says her next new album will be much darker.

Teenage Dream drops in North American stores August 24 and August 30 global.
