(Radio.com) Before kicking off the We Can Survive concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles Wednesday night, Katy Perry's BFF and frequent collaborator Bonnie McKee spoke with Radio.com about her '80s-inspired upcoming album, the inspiration behind "Roar" and the difference between writing songs for herself and writing for others.

For the singer–who's written songs for not only Perry, but Ellie Goulding, Cher, Kesha and Britney Spears –the difference is actually very simple. "When I'm writing for other people I have to play it safe," she said.

"When I'm dealing with Britney Spears and Katy Perry, these massive brands, like really very Coca-Cola, you know what I mean? There are certain kinds of standards, There are risks you can take, and there's risks that you don't. And I think I'm interested in taking a little more risk in my own music."

McKee has had her fair share of hits, but there's one song she wishes she would have written. Find of what song that is here.
