Katy Perry Grammys

We told you Katy would have a surprise performance at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards and she gave the best performance of her career while singing her new single ‘Part of Me’ — Russell must feel like a total jerk!

Katy Perry just proved that the best breakup revenge is living well and looking great! The 27-year-old kicked total butt while singing her new single “Part of Me” during the Grammys on Feb. 11. Katy looked totally hot in her skin-tight getup and was perfectly in pitch while belting out lyrics like “you chewed me up and spit me out!”

The new song is all about a girl getting over a guy who dumped her and Katy sounded unbelievable! It sounded like she was singing this right at her ex Russell Brand and we hope he was watching and kicking himself for dumping the amazing artist.

“Days like this I want to drive away/Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade/’Cause you chewed me up and spit me out/Like I was poison in your mouth/You took my light, you drained me down/That was then and this is now/Now look at me/This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me!”

The performance gave us chills and we are so proud of her for taking the stage so soon after her breakup!

And here are the full lyrics to Katy’s “Part of Me”

Days like this I want to drive away. Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade.’ Cause you chewed me up and spit me outLike I was poison in your mouth. You took my light, you drained me down.
That was then and this is now. Now look at me

This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

I just wanna throw my phone away
Find out who is really there for me
‘Cause you ripped me off, your love was cheap
Was always tearing at the seams
I fell deep and you let me drown
But that was then and this is now
Now look at me

This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw your sticks and stones

Throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

Now look at me, I’m sparkling
A firework, a dancing flame
You won’t ever put me out again
I’m glowing, oh woah oh
You can keep the dog from me
I never liked him anyway
In fact you can keep everything
Yeah, yeah
Except for me

This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
