SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - JUNE 30:  Katy Perry arrives at the "Katy Perry: Part Of Me" Australian Premiere on June 30, 2012 in Sydn

I was under the impression that Katy Perry needed at least a six-month hiatus to recuperate from the last two whirlwind years she's experienced: She reached the top of the charts six (count 'em, six) times with singles from her insanely successful Teenage Dream album, she went through a very public, "overwhelming" divorce with ex Russell Brand and she put $2 million of her own coinage into her 3-D concert documentary, "Katy Perry: Part Of Me," released just this month. Let the girl get herself a facial.

But pop stars don't stop! (Or eat, according to Lady Gaga—a side-eye in your direction, Gaga.) Perry stopped by Toronto's Kiss 92.5 to talk new material, and the "Wide Awake" singer is looking forward to her next album, which will perhaps reveal some of her biggest secrets: "I would love to just let it be the black box of who I am." Mysterious! 

Even though Perry's navigated her way through troubled waters over the past year, the pop princess promises she's not going to focus on her blues: “I’d never devote a whole record to heartbreak," said Perry. "I’m happy. I’m in a good place. I’m looking forward to my future." If you're happy, we're happy, Katy. Now go get that massage and get back to the studio.
