Pop star Katy Perry graces the cover of Vogue and revealing details about her relationships with ex-husband Russell Brand and ex-boyfriend John Mayer.
Perry opened up about her relationships with Brand and Mayer in Vogue’s July issue. The 28-year old reveals just how heart-broken she was during her breakups with the two entertainers.
Perry recalls that Brand was “a magical man” when she first met him at the MTV Movie Awards in 2009. But his humor wasn’t so amusing in the final months of their relationship. The two married in 2010, but divorced 14 months later, citing irreconcilable differences.
“He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him,” Perry said. “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.”
Perry added, “[He is] Hysterical in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows. So. Hysterical to a point. I mean, I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie,” she said, referring to the documentary “Katy Perry: Part of Me.”
“That wasn’t edited to leave footage out — there wasn’t any footage of him.”
Perry, who is the voice of Smurfette in the new movie Smurfs 2, claims Brand wanted an equal in the relationship, but things quickly changed.
“At first when I met him, he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness,” Perry said. “He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting. I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day. I let go and I was like: This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that.”
Perry went on to talk about Mayer and revealed he wasn’t a rebound guy.
“No, not at all,” she said. “No, I was madly in love with him. I still am madly in love with him. All I can say about that relationship is that he’s got a beautiful mind … Beautiful mind, tortured soul. I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds.”
Perry revealed that she’s not in a relationship at the moment.
“I’m not in a relationship, I’m just on my own — I am myself in my own bed,” she said. “I have to be happy being alone, and I am happy … I believe that I will be loved again, in the right way … I know I’m worth it.”
