The 'Firework' hitmaker - currently dealing with the heartbreak of the end of her 14 month marriage to Russell Brand in December - is feeling ''very inspired'' as she plans to go back into the studio.
She told MTV: ''I have an idea for the next two records; it just depends.
''I'm very inspired at the moment, and so I'm gonna follow my heart as I always have and hopefully people will like it.''
Katy, 27, added after the phenomenal success of her 'Teenage Dream' album - which spawned five US number one singles - she is not trying to match its commercial success but make the music she feels is most comfortable.
She added: ''I'm just gonna do what feels right for me artistically.
''I don't want to give too much away. I also don't want to play the game of trying to continually top myself because eventually it may not always go as I planned. ''I may not get to be able to have another number one.''
The 'I Kissed A Girl' singer recently said her new material would be ''real f***ing dark'' in the wake of the tumultuous changes in her personal life.
