Rejoice, California Gurls — the CW will air an hourlong album release special with Katy Perry later this month.

To celebrate the launch of her latest album “Prism,” Perry has planned a fete with iHeartRadio for Oct. 22, the day of the album’s release. Party will take place at the iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles, and also mark the opening of the event center, which is located next to the CW headquarters in Burbank.

Aside from performing live, Perry will also partake in a Q&A with Mario Lopez about the making of her album during the taping of the event.

The CW will broadcast the bubblegum pop star’s album release party on Oct. 25 at 9 p.m., following the season premiere of femme-skewing dramedy “The Carrie Diaries.”

News follows the CW airing iHeartRadio’s Vegas music fest earlier this week. The network and music org have enjoyed a healthy relationship with one another since the CW paired with iHeartRadio to broadcast its concert specials last year.

    1. Katy Perry Sucks! says:

      Katy Perry must love the NSA she called her album Prism! Lets split those web codes and send them to Bluffdale, Utah! Katy Perry is a degenerate hooker, who doesn’t understand a thing about politics. She can’t figure out what Fascism is, or what Marxism is. She can have her fun while the world burns! One day or another we will hear her ROAR in pain! You can’t live high on the hog forever Katy!… You’d be dumb enough to help Hitler back in the 30’s and 40’s!

      • Kent says:

        Woah, call down – I doubt Katy Perry even knows what PRISM is. She thinks it is a piece of glass that divides light into colors. If you read up on Katy Perry, you would find she comes from a religious family and is a breath of fresh air compared to most pop stars.
