Many fans have been curious about what pop star Katy Perry’s next record will sound like – especially considering her much-publicized divorce from comedian Russell Brand and the heavy recent single “Part of Me.” Well, Perry herself will tell you: “real f**king dark.”

Talking to The Sun, the singer was rather blunt about her feelings toward her failed marriage, saying, “I’d like to use a time machine and go back to a specific date, please.” (Ouch!)

“My music is about to get real f**king dark. You’d never see my face because my hair would be in it,” she continued.

In other Perry news, the singer has yet to dive into the acting game (outside of cameos and voicing a Smurfette last year), but she’s revealed that she almost got a bit part in last year’s Academy Award-winning film “The Help.”

“There was a time when I was going to be involved in ’The Help’ – just a small part, I wasn’t going to be Emma Stone or anything – but I couldn’t because the shooting schedule conflicted with the release of my record,” she lamented to Teen Vogue.

“And I was upset about that; I knew it was going to be an important film,” she continued.

Although, she didn’t get to appear in “The Help,” Perry has her very own 3D film coming out this summer (and no, it’s not “Piranha 3DD”), “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” which will be a documentary as well as a live concert film much in the vein of Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never.”

“I wanted to show people this parade that surrounds me, I wanted them to see the engine. I wanted people to be able to experience the tour and all the joy it brought, which is why we shot it in 3D,” she said about the film.

“Katy Perry: Part of Me” is expected to hit the big screen this upcoming Fourth of July weekend.
