    Katy Perry's New Single "Roar" Has Leaked

    Down with the cotton candy dresses and off with the blue wigs, there's a new Katy Perry.

    Katy Perry's new single "Roar" leaked online two days ahead of its previously scheduled August 12 release— much to the delight of the entire internet.

    A week ago Perry began teasing her audience in anticipation of her new single by releasing a short video featuring the dramatic burning of her famous bright blue wig.

    ... and a sassy kitty, who seemed to be hiding a very big secret.

    The latest video features Perry walking into a recording studio dressed in a supremely sick silk embroidered jacket about to drop her latest single to a waiting world.

    Lucky for us, it dropped two days early. Capitol Records, Perry's record label, has since authorized radio stations to begin playing "Roar."

    Our advice? Prepare yourselves for the inevitable onslaught that is a Katy Perry single.

    Because we're guessing this song isn't going anywhere soon.

    Katy's new album, "Prism", officially drops October 22, 2013.
