Katy Perry is looking to ditch her glitzy pop career in favour of an acoustic guitar – after admitting she’s thinking about going back to folk music.

That’s right – the Roar singer, 28, may have burst on to the scene five years ago with arena anthems like Hot n Cold, but it seems topping the charts wasn’t always her goal.

She told Billboard magazine: «I’ll probably turn into more of a Joni Mitchell. As I inch towards my 30s, I think my fourth record will be more of an acoustic guitar album.»

Saying that, the brunette beauty’s upcoming new album PRISM – released on October 22 – is still in her familiar style, and although a trip back to her acoustic roots is tempting, she’s not set on the big switch just yet.

«That’s where I started when I was first discovered by [songwriter/producer] Glen Ballard and got my first record deal,» She explained. «We’ll see – I can’t get ahead of myself.»

Hardcore fans of Katy might not be surprised that she’s not set on pop music for the rest of her days.

Not only did she release a gospel album under her real name Katy Hudson in 2001, she went in completely the opposite direction when she played annual touring punk festival Warped Tour just after the release of I Kissed A Girl in 2008.

Maybe we shouldn’t be too shocked either – tracks like The One That Got Away and Thinking of You showed her softer side, so it could well be a step in the right direction.

One thing for sure is that Katy will always stay honest in her music, admitting she can only write autobiographically.

She has explained that By the Grace of God, a track on the new album, is about her difficulties dealing with heartbreak after her divorce from Russell Brand.

And, given her recent revelations about her boyfriend John Mayer’s bedroom activities, we’re not sure what direction the next record will go.
