"I'm really working hard," the 'Triumphant (Get 'Em)' hitmaker told Ryan Seacrest (as quoted here).
She also 'revealed' that her longtime collaborator and American Idol workmate Randy Jackson has no idea what's been going on as she's been doing some of it in secret.
"Randy, he hasn't even been in the studio in like months to hear what I have. He doesn't know every detail of this because I've been working with a bunch of people in secret locations."
Either that or Randy's just got better things to be getting on with.
