Katy Perry Just Shaded Britney Spears on the Red Carpet

Perry tweeted last night that her song, "Chained To The Rhythm" reflects the start of her "purposeful pop" era, which can mean that her fourth album will be centered and contain themes around political and social change.

The 59th annual Grammy Awards, hosted by The Late Late Show's James Corden, broadcast live on CBS at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.

Katy Perry faced a backlash before the Grammys had even begun on Sunday (12 February), with a comment about Britney Spears that some have branded distasteful. "Grammy LEWK w/ my NEW @COVERGIRL Katy Kat Pearl Collection!", she wrote, linking out to Walgreens where you can purchase her Grammys essentials for $6.99.

"Chained to the Rhythm" is a collaboration with Max Martin, and it was co-written by Sia.

The lyric video, which already has more than eight million views, can be seen HERE. She cemented her status as a global superstar with the follow-up album, Teenage Dream (2010).

And in 2013, she wore whatever this is. With the singles "Firework" and "Dark Horse" each surpassing the 10 million threshold including song sales and streams, Katy is the first female artist to earn two RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards.

Cumulatively, she has sold more than 40 million adjusted albums and over 125 million tracks worldwide.
