Katy Perry needs to relax
After rereleasing her 2010 album Teenage Dream at the end of last month Katy Perry has shown one thing, she just wants attention. The rerelease comes with the entire original album, an acoustic version of her hit single "The One That Got Away," three new songs("Wide Awake," Dressin' Up," and the single "Part of Me"), remixes of "E.T." and "Last Friday Night" which feature Kanye West and Missy Elliott respectively. and a megamix of all her singles. While Teenage Dream, Perry's second album was not as good as her debut, One of the Boys, it was still fun, catchy and carefree. The album featured an insane amount of hit singles and after getting a divorce from Russel Brand, it was clear that her next album would be great. Breakups are the best thing for songwriters and Katy's future was bright. Then she came out with the Teenage Dream rerelease. While most rereleases are not worth getting some do the trick (In This Moment's rerelease of their album The Dream only added to how great that album was). While Katy's rerelease featured okay songs, they weren't great. So some advice for Katy, while you're recording your new album, take your time. You don't need to rush. Give the world time to wonder where you've gone before you come out with your new release. It'll be much better for you.
