"Part of Me" is a song by American recording artist Katy Perry. The dance-pop and pop rock song was written by Perry and Bonnie Mckee, while production and additional songwriting was done by Lukasz Gottwald and Max Martin. In late 2010, the entire demo of the song leaked online, with music critics comparing the song to Perry's previous single "California Gurls" (2010) and speculating that the lyrics are addressed to the singer's ex-boyfriend Travis McCoy. However, it is clear from a reworked version of the song, leaked on February 11, 2012, that the track is directed at her ex-husband Russell Brand with the lyrics "Keep your diamond ring". Background The track was written as part of the Teenage Dream sessions involving Perry, Dr. Luke, Bonnie Mckee, and Max Martin, along with "Teenage Dream", "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" & "California Gurls". Katy and Bonnie McKee had been casual friends before Katy called her because she wanted help on a song called “Part of Me". According to Rolling Stone magazine McKee stayed up all night writing lyrics. By the time Perry heard the third line, she shouted, “We’re buying you a car!”. In an interview with blogger Akex Kazemi, McKee said about the song: "The other one I wrote on, 'Part of Me' I heard is gonna be on a bonus version or something. That one is beautiful. Katy sings with so much emotion and when I heard the chorus for the first time it gave me chills. It is a very real, raw song." On December 30, 2010, the full demo of the track leaked online. According to MTV.com the song was rumored to be a leftover cut from her Teenage Dream recording sessions. However, fans have speculated that the track may be included in a re-release of the Grammy-nominated LP, which was unconfirmed at that time. In 2012, "Part of Me" received an official release as the lead single from the album's re-release. It will be available for digital download on February 21, 2012. On February 11, 2012, a day before the performance of new single on Grammy Award, final and complete version leaked on the internet with inclusion of new lines and changing the musical structure of music. On February 11, 2012, Capital Records announced Part Of Me would now be released on February 13, 2012 According to James Dinh of MTV, the dance-pop, pop rock, and house song was produced "by pop mastermind Dr. Luke", and noted that "the pop star appears strong, bold and just a tad resentful after a breakup" on the track. The singer declares herself unbreakable after a breakup, singing about it in lines such as "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 drink me down/ That was then and this is now, now look at me." Dinh also compared "Part of Me" to Perry's previous single "California Gurls" (2010), stating that "the tune's steady beat amplifies" as the chorus starts. "This is the part of me/ That you're never gonna ever take away from me/ Throw your sticks in the stones/ Throw your palms in your clothes/ But you're not gonna break my soul/ This is the part of me that you're never gonna ever take away from me," she sings. Chris Ryan also of MTV speculated that the song is directed to Perry's ex-boyfriend Travis McCoy, while New York magazine journalist Amanda Dobbis considered it as "another break-up anthem".

Part of Me - Katy Perry

[Verse 1:]
Days like this I want to drive away,
Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade.
[Standard version:] 'Cause you chewed me up and spit me out,
["Complete Confection" version:] You chewed me up and spit me out,
Like I was poison in your mouth.
You took my light, you drained me down,
But that was then and this is now.
Now look at me!

[Chorus:]
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 your 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!

[Verse 2:]
I just wanna throw my phone away,
Find out who is really there for me.
[Standard version:] 'Cause you ripped me off, your love was cheap,
["Complete Confection" version:] You ripped me off, your love was cheap,
Was always tearing at the seams,
[Standard version:] I fell deep, and you let me down,
["Complete Confection" version:] I fell deep, you let me down,
But that was then and this is now.
Now look at me!

[Chorus:]
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 your 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!

[Hook]
Now look at me I'm sparkling,
A firework, a dancing flame.
You won't ever put me out again,
I'm glowin', oh, whoa.
[Standard version:] You can keep the dog from me
["Complete Confection" version:] So you can keep the diamond ring,
[Standard version:] I never liked it anyway
["Complete Confection" version:] It don't mean nothing anyway,
In fact you can keep everything, yeah, yeah,
Except for me!

[Chorus:]
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 your 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!

[Standard Outro:]
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 your 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

["Complete Confection" Outro:]
This is the part of me, no,
Away from me, no
This is the part of me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me... no
Throw your sticks and your 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!
