After selling more than 75 million tracks and earning eight Grammys, Katy Perry is ready to conquer the big screen with her upcoming documentary film, Katy Perry: Part of Me 3-D.

During a sit-down on Monday with Good Morning America, the pop princess explained how her hit album ‘Teenage Dream" inspired the upcoming flick, due in theaters July 5.

"I went to go and book my tour with my management, and everybody wanted to come,” Perry recalled. “And I was like, 'Well, this is interesting. People really are reacting to the record.’ And I thought to myself, 'Well, I think this is going to be a moment. Maybe I should catch it on tape. I'm either going to go completely mental, completely bankrupt, or have the best success of my life.”

Underneath the flashy fashions and colorful pop-star persona, Perry revealed she is a musician first and foremost.

“[I’m a] songwriter first and foremost,” she explained. “When I was 13, I asked for a guitar. And that’s how I really started explaining my point of view. And it’s kind of like my ammunition. And when I want to get a point across, it’s better to write a song when you can sing along … I think at the end of it all, I will always have that to fall back on when I don’t fit into my cupcake bra anymore. I will still fit behind my guitar.”

And the documentary chronicles more than just her booming career. Perry didn’t shy away from sharing her personal ups-and-downs — most notably, her super-publicized split from funnyman Russell Brand — on the silver screen.

“I’m OK with showing that real side and stripping that down,” she said. “I thought it would have been strange if I had completely avoided it. And hopefully, you know, people see that problem and they see me having that problem, they’re like, ‘Oh. Well, even she can’t dodge life’s curve balls. Even at that level.’ And they can relate to me better. That’s what I want is, I want that human connection, especially with my fans.”

Despite all her divorce heartbreak, Perry still believes in her happily ever after.

"I'm going to let love lead the way, always," she said. "And I was born with this blind - blind ambition, and it's kind of gotten me here to this point. And I think that I'll stick to it.”
