At the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night, Katy Perry debuted her new single "Wide Awake," which seemingly addresses the pop star's recent divorce from Russell Brand.

"Not losing any sleep, I picked up every piece and landed on my feet. Need nothing to complete myself. I am born again, outta the lion's den. I don't have to pretend. The story's over now, the end," the 27-year-old sings on the track, which was written for her upcoming 3D movie, "Katy Perry: Part of Me."
