After a newly single Katy Perry unleashed the seemingly anti-Russell Brand track "Part of Me" at this year's Grammys, many wondered if her newest song "Wide Awake," which debuted at Sunday's 2012 Billboard Awards, would be directed at her ex-husband.

Although the lyrics are somewhat vague, many fans interpreted them as the 27-year-old's farewell to the British comedian. The words read: "I wish I knew then what I know now / Wouldn't dive in, wouldn't bow down / Gravity hurts / You made it so sweet 'til I woke up on the concrete."

What's the deal with Katy's new tune?

During a recent interview, the singer opened up about putting her personal tunes on Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection. She said:

"Well, there were two songs that I had from Teenage Dream that I couldn't put on, it was 'Part of Me' and 'Dressing Up.' And then I knew we were doing the re-release and so I was like, 'I got to get in the studio,' because I can't wait eight months to be able to put out this feeling that I'm feeling right now, 'cause God knows it would take eight months to do another record. I couldn't do it on the fly, to set up records it takes time."

Aside from appearing on her latest compilation record, "Wide Awake" will be featured on her new flick, Katy Perry: Part of Me.

Do you think "Wide Awake" is about Russell? Watch the video then sound off in the comments.

    I think she probably wrote this song before they split but is it telling that she appears on a swing wearing what looks like a wedding dress as she did at a performance during her marriage and showed a part of her wedding video in the background? I'm sure most singers etc channel some of their emotions into their music, either way its not that important,they are both moving on with their lives. Russell has certainly got his 'mojo' back performing the best comedy he has in a while last weekend in UK
