The incomparable Katy Perry is set to add movie star to her resume with the release of her 3D concert documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me, premiering July 5.

The film not only offers a front row seat to the pop hit-maker's concerts, but takes viewers behind the scenes for the rarest of looks inside Perry’s personal life.

Above all, KP promises eye-popping 3D sequences: "The word 'cheap' was not in the vocabulary. Hello - it's 3D. You're going to get hit with a lot of sh!t."

Bold words, but undoubtedly true. Here's the full-length trailer:

The lovely Ms. Katy Perry will soon be making the jump from pop superstar to queen of 3D with her upcoming concert movie, Katy Perry: Part of Me.

The voluptuous, Grammy-winning artist is offering fans the chance to walk the red carpet with her when the film premieres this summer, to boot.

Check out a video of Katy promoting the “Golden Ticket” to the film below ...

From Paramount Insurge Pictures, the same studio that brought us Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, it's safe to say this film won't disappoint the faithful.

The studio, Perry and Twitter have combined forces to offer her legion of fans multiple opportunities to help shape the film as it is being put together, too.

That's even more exciting than our gallery of Katy Perry pictures ... or at least it's pretty close. It's a pretty awesome gallery we've compiled at THG.

Katy Perry channeled two of her contemporaries this weekend with a cover of Rihanna's "Only Girl" and Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" in Manchester (UK).

The singer has teased an upcoming collaboration with Rihanna - though it's unclear what that will entail specifically - and paid homage to her BFF here.

Perry has been touring Europe, where she's been linked to model Baptiste Giabiconi, in the wake of her surprising divorce from zany comic Russell Brand.

Take a listen to the live Gaga-Rihanna medley below ...

Katy Perry's official "Part of Me" music video has just been released, and it's an homage to all things girl power. Specifically, the few, the proud, the Marines.

It starts with Miss Perry sitting in a car, watching her beau attempt to work it with another girl. She storms into a gas station and a confrontation ensues.

While storming out, she lays eyes on a bumper sticker on the community board that reads, "All women are created equal, then some become Marines."

Perry, who wrote this song two years ago (it's not a slap at Russell Brand) enlists and dons some camo gear and boots. It's a pretty hot look on her, no?

Katy, who has recently been linked to model Baptiste Giabiconi, has performed her latest single live on numerous occasions in the U.S. and in Europe.

Katy Perry is so excited about the prospect of a collaboration with BFF Rihanna, she may have put her foot in her mouth discussing the potential project.

Perry weighed in on the forthcoming song (which undoubtedly will be a catchy #1 hit with those two working together), with an apparent dig at Beyonce:

"We've collaborated on things, just not songs yet. It's one of those things that's got so much build-up that we have to deliver," she said on BBC Radio 1.

  • Katy Perry is Back
  • Beyonce in Concert

"I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song 'Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves,' not 'Beautiful Liar.' I definitely want to do something iconic."

Beyonce's 2007 track "Beautiful Liar," featuring Shakira, isn't her best song, but it did reach No. 1 on the iTunes best-seller list and U.S. Hot Singles Sales.

Perry doesn't have a reputation for starting beef with other celebs, so we're guessing she did not mean it as an insult ... even if it sort of reads that way.

Maybe Bey and Katy can collaborate next and bury the hatchet in this non-feud?

In sort of related news, KP sort of embarrassed herself covering "N****s In Paris" by Jay-Z and Kanye West at the same BBC Radio 1 appearance.

Private Perry, reporting for duty! Pop superstar Katy Perry debuted the teaser trailer for her ‘Part of Me’ music video today, and she's ready for combat!

Showing the Grammy Award-nominated singer preparing for battle in full army gear, the 25-second tease hints at an interesting final product to say the least.

The song, already a hit for Perry, features female-empowering lyrics that some say are a direct slap at ex Russell Brand, though Katy has denied this.

Will the video reveal a similar message, whatever that might be? We’ll find out when it fully premieres Wednesday, March 21. For now, the trailer ...

Despite some lyrics that make clear reference to a relationship falling apart and love gone wrong, Katy Perry insists "Part of Me" isn't about Russell Brand.

"I wrote it two years ago, which is funny because everybody is like 'God, it sounds so current,'" the pop star, 27, told MTV News about her latest single.

The song is full of jabs - "You can keep the diamond ring/It don't mean nothing anyway" etc. - leading many to conclude that it was a dig at Russell.

Not the case, says Perry, whose split with Brand remains amicable.

Katy and Russell wed in October 2010 and split in December 2011.

"Some people that I work with were like, 'Just say you wrote it a couple of weeks ago,'" she says. "I'm like, 'I'm not a d---, 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. It's not about [Russell Brand]."

Still, Perry admits that the timing is eerie in a sense.

"Sometimes I'm like, 'Am I living in The Truman Show?' It just feels like sometimes I'm caught in this movie where my life is paralleling my music!"

"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."

Will "The One That Got Away" be Katy Perry's sixth straight #1 hit?

She hopes so, and thinks today's video release date might be good luck.

On Ellen DeGeneres' show this morning, Katy noted that if you took six #1's and lined them up, you'd get 11/11/11. We totally didn't think of that earlier.

Check out the video, which debuted during her interview with Ellen, and see if you think it's up there with some of her other recent, instant pop hits:

Not bad, huh? She sure does love dressing up in elaborate costumes.

On a really cool note, Perry announced that she will be holding a special free concert at Staples Center in Los Angeles for all her fans on November 23! Free!

Switching gears, she says she wants to start "poppin' kids left and right" before long.

"As long as it doesn't hurt the first time. I'll keep popping them out," Katy claims.

So basically, she and Russell are only gonna have one kid, but it'll be cute!

Rocker Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes fame recently spoke out about the music of her contemporary namesake Katy Perry. In less than flattering terms.

Linda, who has also written songs for Pink, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani and other young stars, was asked in an interview to pick the worst artist today.

Katy Perry topped her list.

Linda told music journalist Heath Daniels that Katy Perry only churns out tracks she compares to junk food, and is emblematic of the industry today.

"It's just different, it's different," Linda says. "You listen to the Adele record, and I'm not a huge fan of Adele, it's a solid record. Solid, and it's selling."

"So that means people are still buying records. It's the crap, like who wants a f--king Katy Perry record? I'm sorry, you know? You're gonna get the two hits that are good, but the rest of the album is gonna be crap."

So much for "I Kissed a Girl" making her a one-hit wonder.

Katy Perry and Michael Jackson may not have much in common, but they're the only artists in music history to post five #1 hits from the same album.

Perry is therefore, obviously, the first woman ever to achieve the feat thanks to hits from Teenage Dream. "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" is now the fifth.

  • Hot Smurfette
  • The Late King of Pop

Interestingly, Michael's iconic album Thriller didn't achieve the feat, but its follow-up Bad, with hits like "Man in the Mirror" and "Smooth Criminal," did.

Jackson spent a total of seven weeks at the top with his Bad songs, while Perry has occupied the top spot now for a record cumulative 18 weeks.
