It was been a rough month for Katy Perry with that (highly problematic) “Dark Horse” verdict, but it’s not all doom and gloom for the superstar. For starters, the 34-year-old has signed on for another extremely lucrative season of American Idol and it looks like she’s about to roll out new music. Katy caught the attention of social media by sharing what appear to be song lyrics. “Isn’t it weird that you’ve seen me naked,” the post begins. “We had conversations about forever, now it’s about the weather okay.”

The biggest indication that the pop icon teased lyrics from a new song? Well, it’s the hashtag. “Small Talk” seems to be the title, and if the lyrics are any indication, it’s going to be another emotional anthem about the aftermath of a doomed relationship. After all, for all its dreamy synths and choppy post-chorus, “Never Really Over” is an unusually bruised and battered pop song. Who knows, KP5 might be Katy’s breakup album. See her post below.
