If you watched last night’s Grammy Awards telecast, then you caught blue-haired Katy Perry’s debut performance of new single “Part Of Me”. The singer is newly-divorced from ex-husband Russell Brand, and with lyrics in the Dr. Luke- and Max Martin-co-produced dance-pop jam like “you took my light and drained me down, but that was then and this is now,” we can’t help feeling the smack of irony here.
Nicki Minaj sings about timeless love in the new “Young Forever”, a candy-coated ballad of unknown origins. Reportedly produced by Dr. Luke, the song is of course rumored to be from her upcoming Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded release, and it complicates what is already expected to be a busy day for the Grammy-nominated Harajuku Barbie (since she’s expected to perform a different new song, “Roman Holiday”, on the telecast).
