Katy Perry is moving on from her candy-colored persona; gone are the lollipops, the starlight mint-covered stage getups, the rainbow hued-wigs. But that doesn’t mean she’s given up everything she once loved. The 28-year old singer still adores cats, as is evident in the teaser for her upcoming single, “Roar”. The new album, Prism, will hit stores August 12th.

Perry has been a busy bee lately, recording a song called “Who You Love” with beau John Mayer, which will be included on his album Paradise Valley. Mayer has said that Katy helped him recover after he had surgery last August to repair a granuloma in his throat.

“She was so patient,” he said, adding that she was his voice when he literally couldn’t speak. The two have been an on-again off-again couple since around this time last year.

The new teaser trailer for “Roar” is available to watch now, and Perry just announced the release of the single cover for the song, which features the singer sporting a very ’80s style satin jacket with a tiger on the back.
