Katy Perry has promised her new songs will be more mature - because she now knows how to "handle" boys.
The 'I Kissed a Girl' singer - who is currently dating British comedian Russell Brand - insists her follow-up material to debut album 'One of the Boys' will be influenced by her romantic experiences.
She said: "My new songs are a little bit more mature. I know how to handle boys now.
"Actually, I don't even mess with boys anymore, I mess with men. It's different because on 'One of the Boys' I was, like, 17 to 23 and some of those songs, like half the record, I wrote when I was 19 - and that's such a different place than you are when you're 25."
The singer also revealed she has started "saving" details of her life, so her new songs will be more honest.
She added: "When I sit down to talk about things, sometimes I don't give as much detail as I used to but I think I am saving it for the songs - and the songs I'm just gushing.
"From the few songs that I've written so far, they are very honest, if not more honest than the last ones."
