Katy Perry's 3D concert movie will hit theaters this Fourth of July weekend, the Los Angeles Times reports. Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D, a film featuring documentary and live footage of the pop star, will debut on July 5th in a bid to match the success of Justin Bieber's highly profitable Never Say Never 3D concert film.

You can watch a trailer for Perry's movie below. Though the clip includes shots of the pop star's colorful stage show, some emphasis is placed on her recent divorce from comedian Russell Brand, as their relationship dissolved over the course of filming the tour.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
