Katy Perry

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."
