Katy Perry revealed quite a bit in her Vogue magazine exclusive interview recently. The singer reveals for the first time just how she found out that her former husband and comedian Russell Brand wanted a divorce.
She also reveals that although she’s still madly in love with fellow musician John Mayer, they are no longer a couple and just why that is. Read up on what Katy had to say below.
On Russell Brand & Receiving His Request For A Divorce Via Text:
“He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him,”Perry says.
“Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011,” she added.
“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. 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.”
On Blaming Herself:
“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 …”
She adds, “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.”
On Her On-Off Relationship With John Mayer & Admitting She’s Still Madly In Love With Him:
“It’s over … 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.”
