We were the exclusive premiere the cover of her brand-new album, "prism," which is coming out just before your BIRTHDAY, ON OCTOBER 22nd. We haven't gotten to the big announcement. We'll let you do the honors, katy. Thank you. Okay. I'm very excited. Well, should I explain it now? Push the button. Oh, this button. I'll push this. Ready? Go. When you have the number one song all across the world, what do you do to say thank you to your fans? Well, america, get ready to roar. Because katy perry is putting out a call to high schools across america. Katy perry. And katy wants to see your school's best roar. Show her what your school's got.

You send us the video on her BIRTHDAY, OCTOBER 25th, SHE WILL Come to your high school. And it was three years ago today, you want back to your high school in santa barbara. It's very exciting to go back to high school or school. When I get up this early in the morning, it makes me relive that feeling for school, like crusty eyes and tired. You know, what I used to do? My mom would wake me up from school, I would put the comforter underneath my door. I'm getting up. If you send in a video and if you are picked, we will come there october 25th and perform live for you guys. And you guys are going to come there, too. That would be great. We will be there.

And the theme for this record is just me. It's kind of like stripped down, more raw, more essential oils of who I am. And there's a lot of light and hope and love and story telling.
