Katy Perry Needs A 'F***ing Vacation' After Next Single, 'Wide Awake'

Katy Perry says she needs a 'f---ing vacation' after her next single, 'Wide Awake.'

Despite the title of her next single -- "Wide Awake" -- Katy Perry really wants some rest.

Speaking at the NARM Music Awards, where she was named Artist Of The Year, Perry revealed that she was looking forward to taking a much-needed vacation.

"I swear, after this song, I'm taking a f---ing vacation," said Perry, who certainly has a knack for turning out No. 1 singles.

Perry scored five No. 1s off her 2010 album "Teenage Dream" -- "California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "E.T." and "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)." The pop singer even tied Michael Jackson's record for most No. 1 singles off a single album. (Jackson scored five No. 1s off 1987's Bad.)

Unfortunately for Perry, her sixth single "The One That Got Away" was aptly named; it was the only single not to reach No. 1.

"Wide Awake," her second single off the Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection special edition album, will hit radio later this month.

The purple-haired songstress also topped the Billboard charts with the first single off The Complete Confection, "Part of Me." The subsequent video for the break-up single was boycotted by writer Naomi Wolf for being military propaganda.

Perry recently revealed that her next album will be "real f---ing dark." In December 2011, her husband Russell Brand filed for divorce, after just 14 months of marriage. The split was reportedly amicable.

Meanwhile, Electropop act M83 has expressed interest in helping Perry write her next record.

As if that weren't enough, Perry's "Part of Me 3D" movie hitting theaters July 5. Perhaps she should think about going on that vacation sooner rather than later.
