Is Katy Perry’s Next Single ‘E.T.’?

Online reports point to the spacey tune as the pop star's fourth Teenage Dream release.

Katy Perry kicked off the summer proclaiming that “California Gurls” wear Daisy Dukes and bikinis on top. Then she pulled at our heartstrings and made us believe in true love on “Teenage Dream.” Finally, she empowered her fans with “Firework.” All three of her Teenage Dream singles have shot to the top of the charts, and she apparently is now ready to see if the fourth time’s the charm.

Perez Hilton reports that Perry’s next Teenage Dream single will be the upbeat tack “E.T.” A rep at Perry’s label declined to confirm the report when reached by MTV News.

Perry took to Twitter earlier this month to ask fans to help her pick her next single. There was some speculation that her choice would be “Peacock,” but the pop star didn’t reveal what tune would be next up for release. “Thanks for all your great suggestions for the next single today!” she tweeted on December 13. “Your voice has been heard! We’re on the same page…”

Perry has been playing “E.T.” live as of late. Recently at Z-100′s Jingle Ball , the spirited singer joked about the spacey dance track, telling the crowd, “This next song is about falling in love with a foreigner, like far away … Not even in England.”

Regardless of which tune Perry chooses as her next single, can expect the video for the track to be an event. “I guess I’m looking forward to making music videos on this new album,” she said earlier this year about Teenage Dream .
“There’s a story to the songs. … I’m really excited about … making those music videos that are going to be larger than life.”
