    Katy Perry's new hit song "Part of Me," which was added to the deluxe edition of Teenage Dream, isn't about her ex-husband-to-be Russell Brand. That's surprising, since the lyrics are pretty pointed, including a specific lyrical turn of phrase: "You can keep the diamond ring /It don't mean nothing anyway."

    "I wrote it two years ago, which is funny because everybody is like 'God, it sounds so current,' " Perry told MTV News.

    Despite that easy press angle, Perry wouldn't lie and say she wrote it about Brand. "Some people that I work with were like, 'You should just say you wrote it a couple of weeks ago,' " she says. "I'm like, 'I'm not a dick, 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."

    Perry and Brand are in the middle of a divorce after just a year of marriage.
