Listen: Katy Perry Releases New, Gentler Single

Katy Perry Pink Hair has been through the ringer recently. She spent the holidays away from her husband, only to be hounded by reporters and paparazzi at every turn and at the end of it all, Russell Brand served her divorice papers. And if that wasn’t enough, her last single, “The One That Got Away (Feat. B.O.B.)” didn’t exactly rake in that iTunes cash. So what’s a soon-to-be divorced girl to do? Why, use her heartache to fuel a new acoustic version of the same song in hopes of better results. And, at least for this listener, the more bare, honest approach seems to suit the song much better than the pimped out pop version.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
