Katy Perry’s 2019 takeover begins now.

Katy didn’t shy away from the fact that Witness was her worst performing album ever, and that threw the singer for a loop.

In 2018, Katy explained. “I want a record to be successful because there’s a lot behind it. There’s a lot of time invested, emotion and money of course. Anything you’re going to invest highly in, you definitely want to see a return.”

She added: “I’ve been used to some otherworldly stuff. I think what happened… that high hit was so normal. That kind of Muhammad Ali knockout was so normal, and when I wasn’t doing the knockout it was like, ‘what is this?!'”

In an interview with Paper, complete with a photoshoot where she looks like Xtina, Lady Gaga and Brooke Candy, Katy said she’s putting new music on the back burner to focus on her studies.

“A lot of people go who have already had success in their careers at 45, and they’re like, ‘Well, what the **** do I do now?’ That was interesting, because it would be very Harry Potter for me,” she says. Katy added that she loves to make new music, but the touring part really “tires [her] out.”

It’s interesting timing, because the President of Programming Operations at iHeartRadio says she IS releasing new music, and “soon.”

She also recently released “365” with Zedd.

We’ll have to wait and see, because in 2018, Katy told Footwear News shows “going to chill.”

“I’m not going to go straight into making another record. I feel like I’ve done a lot. I feel like I’ve rung the bell of being a pop star very loudly, and I’m very grateful for that,” Katy said.

“I knew what I wanted to do when I was 9 years old, so everything else became secondary to that. I didn’t really pay attention to anything besides my craft — which is great, and I love it. I love making music, I love writing. But I don’t feel like I’m a part of a game anymore; I just feel like I’m an artist. I don’t feel like I have to prove anything, which is a freeing feeling.”
