Katy Perry: I'm a control freak

Katy Perry

Katy Perry admits that she is "overly prepared" with her work.

The 27-year-old songstress does not leave her song composition to chance and is meticulous about planning.

Despite her enthusiastic preparation, Katy is often shocked by the way her songs play out in real life.

"I sit down and I write all these songs at once, all these emotions and feelings and thoughts, and then, like, it just feels like sometimes I'm caught in this movie where my life is paralleling my music!" Katy gushed to MTV News. "It seems very serendipitous, but, as un-fun as it sounds, I prepare everything. I'm overly prepared and kind of a control freak in the best of ways."

Newly-single Katy took to the stage at the Grammys recently to perform her latest track Part of Me. Many speculated that the song has been penned in light of her impending divorce from British comedian Russell Brand.

Katy actually wrote the track while she and Russell were passionate newlyweds.

"I wrote it two years ago, which is funny because everybody is like 'God, it sounds so current,' " Katy shared. "And some people that I work with were like 'You should just say you wrote it a couple of weeks ago.' I'm like 'I'm not a d**k, I'm going to tell the truth.' I wrote it two years ago when I was writing and recording Teenage Dream, [but] it didn't feel right on the record. I would've had to take out one of my other songs that [made the album] a nice, complete package."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Your partner may be irresponsible with money and you're tired of paying the price for it. Keeping separate financial accounts may be the arrangement for the two of you. If your amour continues to accumulate debt without fear of the consequences, it may be time to part ways. You're a practical person who yearns for financial security. Putting money into a savings account gives you the freedom to travel, write and study. Don't be ashamed of your needs; they encompass your personality.More
