Not only is Katy Perry's tune "Part Of Me" not about ex Russell Brand, but the singer recently revealed that she was told to lie about it.

"Some people that I work with were like 'You should say you wrote it a couple weeks ago,'" Perry said of the her emotional Grammys tune, according to MTV news. "I'm like, 'I'm not a douchebag. I'm going to tell the truth."

Perry's lyrics, "You can keep the diamond ring/It don't mean nothing anyway/ In fact, you can keep everything -- except for me," seemed to line up perfectly with her December split from husband Russell Brand, but Perry said the song was written back in 2010.

"It feels like my life plays out with these songs," she said. "I feel like I'm in some kind of weird 'Truman Show' where I'm like, 'Why is this single appropriate now and it wouldn't have been appropriate then?' It's just so crazy."

“It seems very serendipitous, but, as un-fun as it sounds, I prepare everything,” Perry continued. “I’m overly prepared and kind of a control freak in the best of ways.”
